“Good Food, Decent service”
Review of Aspinwall Grille - CLOSED

Aspinwall Grille
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 January 2013

The food here is usually good. The atmosphere is kind of dinner-ish which is kind of cool. The price of the meals will depend GREATLY on what you choose. However, most of what I have gotten has been good. Sometimes service is spotty, but never terrible. I like it because they have many options ranging in price, and it's locally owned. The beer selection is fair 5-6 on tap and 15-20 bottles. Usually you can walk right in and sit down, though it can get a bit more crowded on weekends. Last night (a Friday) I went around 8pm and there was no wait. I wouldn't recommend going with more than six people though because the seating area is not that accommodating.

I love the fact that is a neighborhood "local" bar but has great food. The recent ownership change has been beneficial and has brought back some of us who were turned off by the prior ownership. Grille burger is still a favorite.

Bar food is offered with a wide variety of beers on tap and in bottles. Burgers are half pound and prepared the way you prefer. The buns are toasted and make the sandwiches. Beer battered onion rings are fresh and tasty. Fries are good. Chicken tenders for the kids are usual fare. Soups hot and tasty. Locals hang here and the language can be rough. If this offends you do not try this place. Large groups may have a problem finding a place to sit. Very limited. No entrees were coming out when my family was there. Good local spot for a burger and a beer. Bathrooms were clean.

Stopped in for a bowl of New England style clam chowder and a plate of chicken wings for lunch. My beverage was water.

The chowder was tasty but was very low on clams. The menue says ten wings; now it is five. When I ordered the wings the waitress explained that they use to be ten pieces (i. e. five wings cut up) but now they are whole wings. At any rate, when the wings arrived they proved to very large wings and covered a dinner plate! They were quite filling and nicely cooked.

This used to be a very nice local place, but before it was sold it had deteriorated. Under the new owner it has made a comeback. It is now a decent bar and grill with an expanded beer list. The waitresses are friendly and efficient, though I miss the old ones that left with the sale.

While I use to come just for the soups, they are no longer special. The food is decent grill food and a reliable place to eat. All in all a good neighborhood place we could use more of.

Maybe 10 years ago, the Aspinwall Grille was a great local spot. It had good, solid food, wonderful servers and a certain fun atmosphere that just made it a great place to eat. Then it started to slide...

Today, the Aspinwall Grille is under new management and is BACK! The food is better, the management cares again and the servers are back in the saddle! It is really a thrill to see "The Grille" return to the concept which made it so popular; good food at a reasonable price and great service by a friendly, informed staff! You don't go here for nouvel cusine, you go here for a great night on the town without spending a fortune!
