I gave 2 stars because it looks like maybe it was once a nice restaurant with a nice patio. Didn?t stay to even try the drinks or food. Dirty tables with dishes and glasses and a big serving tray on one of them. Didn?t seem like anyone was even thinking about cleaning up. It was only 8:00 too. Patio is dirty. Place looks like it?s going out of business. Server and hostess seemed nice though
I have been coming here since past few years to enjoy drinks and Nachos. Yesterday when I went there, they mentioned that they have discontinued Nachos and it?s off the menu. This is a bar without much finger food options. Who will eat 20 different kinds of sushi rolls with drinks? Waitress was very pleasant and she admitted that nachos were one of the most popular dish on the menu. Looks like nearby tavern will get more customers who just want to enjoy happy hour drinks and finger foods. Suggestion for the management to bring more shareable appetizers like Nachos, dips and fries on the menu.
The ambiance ?? Waiter (Kyle) - We really enjoyed him. We loved his personality! ?? Love music ?? ?? Food ? Disappointed ? - this was my first time here. So I had been looking over the menu online during the course of the week. My guests and I arrived (6 of us) - we were so disappointed. Nothing we viewed on line was on the current menu. The simplest things we ordered weren't blowing us away. The food was definitely mediocre that evening. ? Sucks because it's such a beautiful place to visit for a date night with your spouse.
Way overpriced food. Disgusting food. How do you get a hot and honey chicken sandwich and can?t even taste the honey? Rude management. Guest should be made aware of menu changes before they order. I went in to get my usual meal they usually cost me around $45 and ended up paying $90 by the end of the night. For all you non-alcoholic drinkers please don?t get any virgin drinks just stick to the regular fountain drinks. Apparently the price of the drinks comes from the syrups and the ingredients they put inside the drinks. So virgin drinks or mocktails are the same price as an alcoholic drink which is outrageous. Which basically tells me you don?t charge for liquor which should be the most expensive part of the drink. So if I go there again ? and ask for a shot I expect it to be free because there?s no syrups and no ingredients that go inside I won?t even ask for ice. For reservations they will require you to give a 20% tip but our waiter was so busy with the bar that we had to keep tracking him down instead of the other way around so why should I be required to give 20% for service I had to give myself. Don?t get me started on management because they?re rude to their people and they?re rude to their customers. It?s unfortunate because I had my wedding reception here so its nostalgic to go back to even have dinner there but I have to say I will never come back again.
So I went Saturday to grillestone for my dad?s birthday dinner. The waiter was super nice. But the service could have been better. Drinks were taking a while because the bar was ? backed up?. Our entrees came before our appetizer. We also had to ask for drinks and our sides a few times. Then there were times we ordered items, were charged them, and didn?t receive them until we asked for them. The people who work there are super nice. But service needs to be cleaned up.
Drinks were good. Food was okay. Service was prompt and professional despite the restaurant being packed! Reservations recommended. They also had a very cool bar with lots of seating.
I have been to the Grillestone in Old Bridge near me a few times but this was my first trip to the one in Scotch Plains. The food and service were very good! We had calamari and shrimp cocktail and I had the salmon for dinner. My espresso martini was disappointing.
Wife's bday. She was excited about the fishbowl drinks. Unfortunately they nolonger serve those. The menu changed from what we saw in the pictures on their site. Still the food was very good.
