The mussels I ordered was fully cooked. I did tell Sierra (She was FANTASTIC!!) and she took it back to the kitchen. I was charged for that dish even the fact I did not eat after the second piece.

I made my reservation for outside seating and double checked it to be sure I did it correctly and when we got there I was told it was for inside. This is the second time this is happened to me We were told it was a 45 minute wait which is the same thing that happened to me the last time so we died inside but I won’t be coming back for lunch

Our server Britney, admitted she was a new server, she was very personable and did a good job. My wife’s Salmon Piccata was cooked perfectly, but it wasn’t traditional Piccata Sauce nor did it state that on the menu. I had the wild game special of Bison Steak which was cooked to a perfect medium rare, a vegetable medley with crumbled bleu cheese was supposed to be the side dish, but it was served with broccolini.

Dinner with friends and everyone enjoyed the experience. Started with the balsamic chips which were amazing. We each had a different entree and we were all happy with our choices. Topped it off with dessert…. Upside down cake, and chocolate cream pie. Both were excellent.

Food was excellent. Server was very friendly and attentive. My husband ordered salmon and said that it was the best salmon he had ever eaten. I loved the Seafood Cobb Salad! Will definitely be back!

Picked this spot because I wanted an outdoor lunch place due to COVID 19. The menu had so many great options. I am vegan and eat gluten free and I found there were many options to choose from. Everyone at the table thought the food was fantastic. Service was also very good. There was ample outside seating. I will definitely come back again

We enjoy eating out at Grove. In this instance, it was a rainy day. They have curtains they can drop down so you can still sit on the patio and not get wet.

We love the Grove. Maybe it was an off night but service was very slow and food initially wrong. Sat for almost 10 minutes before I actually asked someone to take our drink order. We will still go back but definitely suggest that management reevaluate how many tables they seat in relation to the amount of servers they have.

The atmosphere was nice but the quality of the food does not match the price. Clam chowder was extremely salty. Burger was over cooked and had to be sent back. Sushi was on point though. Very slow service. Overall just disappointed with this place.

Five of the six meals were very good. The lamb chops were very small and over cooked.

It was our first time eating at The Grove. We were so happy with everything. We loved our meal, although we felt that the lettuce wraps could have used more of a balance in portions of chicken to cole slaw. But the taste was wonderful. My husband had a flat bread which he thought was one of the best he has tasted so far. I enjoyed a salad and veggie roll. Both were fresh and tasted very good. We look forward to dining here again.

My wife ordered a sandwich with a gluten free bun and was given a regular bun containing wheat instead. She took a couple bites before realizing the mistake. While the server and manager were apologetic and didn't charge us for her meal, they didn't seem to grasp the gravity of the mistake. Luckily, my wife is not celiac and is "only" gluten free due to arthritis and joint inflammation. That said, she is in for a few uncomfortable days until the wheat works its way through her system.

We like Grove and dine there once or twice per month. This was our first negative experience.

Food in the past has been great. Tonight was just ok. Prime rib was cold but plate was hot. Ribeye steak undercooked and was raw. Waitress did not check on us.

Food was excellent, as was the service. Fairly crowded, so the noise level was a bit high and there was an occasional wafting of cigarette smoke from an unknown source. Overall very good and we will return.

Poor waitress was a bit overwhelmed. She had 2 large tables, kids, separate checks etc. as well as several other tables. She was very good, just felt bad for her. Food was good.

We are outdoors, which was fine. Our entrees varied, the fish and chips were not good, the trout was very good, Seafood Jambalaya was good. Primary problem was waitress who nice enough but forgot things like silverware, mixed up drink orders, etc.
