“A great addition to the Valley!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

We have a place at ClayBrook, and still find nearby family dining options limited. What a treat that we took a chance and tried the new Mad River Grill the on our last night of our summer stay! Awesome atmosphere, warm and personable owner, great mix of clientele, terrific menu and food, and a bonus live guitar performance that capped off a wonderful night! We will certainly return often when the snow flies. Welcome to the Valley!

“Very good food needing better timing.”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Our party of four was visiting the area and decided to try the recently opened Mad River Grill. We thought to have the BBQ Night to learn it was discontinued for lack of interest. However there was plenty of other dishes on the menu that attracted us. We sampled the Seafood Paella, Grilled Shrimp, and customized pizzas. The food was all very good. However, there is an apparent staffing problem in the kitchen resulting in long wait for our orders. Waitress was apologetic and even owner came to explain the problem. Hopefully this will be resolved soon to compliment the wonderful dinner.

“They needed to work out the kinks...”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

I read some of the early reviews on this place. It's unfair to rate a restaurant poorly during it's first week of operation. I had a great meal here. The salmon was served piping hot and was cocked perfectly. I could find nothing wrong with the garlic mashed potatoes or the sautéed kale and Swiss chard. I would definitely recommend this place. I don't think you will be disappointed.

“Great food with great music”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

My husband and kids are so excited to have a place to go for great steaks the rib-eye is my husbands favoite which he explains is full of souch flavor and pizza for the kids. And I also get to enjoy my salmon or scallops wrapped in zucchini drizzled with a balsamic dressing giving it the perfect taste. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a affordable meal and quality taste. Not to mention the music was very nice. The gentleman playing the other night had a great voice and it set the tone for a great experience. We look forward to going back.

“BBQ Night”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Thursdays are BBQ night with fixed menu of affordable BBQ (pork, ribs or chicken) with a choice of two sides. We went on July 4 after a long day. Three had ribs and one had pulled pork. The BBQ sauce is very good with nice tang and not too sweet. Smoked-cabbage cole slaw is good. There were no baked beans that night, though there are usually. Portions were small on the ribs and we would have paid more for more ribs. Biscuits were served timely, but with cold butter, impossible to spread on a delicate biscuit. Service was attentive.
