We dine there frequently for dinner, almost never for lunch. That we keep coming back says something regardless of what else one may wish to infer from this review. One of the draws for us at "The Grille" is the Friday night prime rib. Over the years, we have noted that it has varied from so-so to very good, and you can't predict when it will be what. Usually, it's at least good. But last Friday, I was served the most perfectly slow roasted prime rib I've had ... perhaps anywhere. Tender beyond imagination. Seasoned, but not overly so. I like mine between med. and med. rare. To have a chance of getting that, I order medium rare and let it go at that. It is what it is when it comes out of the oven. That's life. Otherwise, I fear it may be med. well or ... worse. But it's usually quite good.
The Grille seems to focus on some of its smoked meat sandwiches and entrees. We've found them to be quite good. They also have a few seafood dishes, fried shrimp, for example. We've not tried many soups as of late, but the original BP Grill had some good ones. Monday evening, the queen wanted to do a quick dinner somewhere other than home, and we did the Grille yet again. I had a pretty good grilled tuna sandwich with a side of good french fries ... that could have been cooked just a bit more. The queen had their triple salad plate ... ample portions of tuna salad, chicken salad and very good potato salad, with some sliced tomatoes and sliced boiled egg on the side. She eagerly ate half of it and took the rest to work today for lunch. I've always found that triple salad plate to be plenty, and plenty good.
The Grille often has dinner specials, such as surf and turf (steak and shrimp). Each week night is usually a different and predictable special. Monday night they have 50 cent wings ... which I regret I've not tried yet.
They have a decent wine and beer selection, and a full bar, complete with lady bartender. I've grown fond of a can of Lime-a-Rita over ice as of late. And the price is right.
Like many restaurants, the waitstaff rounds out the service level. They will make you or break you. We find that the Grille has nice people waiting tables, but they sometimes seem understaffed ... and other times, we'll find that there is one waitress and a lot of customers. Hard to predict traffic in the restaurant business. But the people in the kitchen can cook up a good meal at a decent price, almost every time.
You can dine in the main dining room, in the dining room adjacent to the bar. I don't know if you can dine in the pool room or not. It, thankfully, has a closed door between it and the bar.
All in all, we approve of The Grille and what it has to offer. Worth a visit.
