“Great food...service & price don't add up”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

On Sept 19, 2013, 2 of us went there for dinner. The hostess greeted us in bedroom slippers. There were 2 other tables filled. The server told us the dinner specials and unfortunately for us, we didn't ask the price. His description of one of the dinner specials was a "big bowl full of fish". My husband ordered it and really enjoyed it, there was a good amount of shrimp, clams, scallops and a piece of fish served over pasta. The price was $40 which seemed high considering the service, spotty at best and the fact we were sitting under spotlights. It was extremely bright in the restaurant. The server poured us our first glass of wine & we never saw him again. We had to flag him down for water refills. My dinner special was also $40, it had 5 large shrimp & 5 large scallops and was delicious, but worth $40...don't think so since it came with no sides or salad. It had been several years since we had visited and it will be several more years before we give it another try.

“Great food”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

My wife and I dined at the Grenville last night. She had Filet Mignon and I had Shrimp and Scallops. A bottle of Champagne and all was very good! No room for dessert!

“Grenville Inn Restaurant”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

We went to the Grenville for dinner the other night. The food was ok, but definitely too over priced. Its a very small menu. The restaurant wasn't crowded but there was only one waiter working and he was doing the best he could. We got there at 7pm and finally left at 8:30, service was very slow. The atmosphere was really nice and the hotel itself looks very nice, haven't stayed there so I don't know how the rooms are.

We thank you for your comment. Every sauce and dish prepared here is made from start to finish here on premise and fresh daily. A large menu would not be controllable for any size kitchen. As we calculate at least 20 minutes between courses our average guests is here for 1:1/2 to 2 hours. We believe our guests should enjoy their evening and do not encourage rushing them unless they tell us they need to leave quickly. Although you may have seen one waiter in the dining room we do have back end waiters in the kitchen and additional helpers behind the scene.
We try to offer coupons and promotional discounts continually throughout the year. We hope to see you in the future.

“Personable and Attentive”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

I had my sisters baby shower on the Veranda and everything was perfect. We had brunch and Harry did a terrific ob with the food, his omelettes are banging and the roasted potatoes are fabulous. Stephanie the front desk girl is very sweet and has excellent follow up skills along with attentive listening. The day of the event ran smoothly, I was greeted warmly by a hug from Renee and anything I needed and asked for was accommodated. Tony and Billy are excellent servers and the entire experience was smooth, delicious and felt warm and quaint.

Reviewed 5 June 2013

It is a quaint victorian restaurant with a beach feeling. All rooms are tastefully done and the food is delicious.
