Experience was AWFUL!! If you have more than 4 people just go somewhere else. They can't seem to figure out how to push 2 tables together so a larger party can sit together. I understand that the place is small but there were enough spots for all of us and we weren't picky on where we sat or how we... More

We went to the Northside Grill for brunch on graduation weekend. Great food! Worth the wait. Very convenient parking. Granted if you want crystal glasses and linen tablecloths this is not the place for you. But if you want plentiful, tasty breakfast food - this is a destination for you. I recommend the skillets. We were a party of three... More

This restaurant is an A2 classic, having been in business in this location for almost 25 years. They're well known for breakfast, but lunch is also served, closing at 3 pm. On this occasion I split an order of huevos rancheros with my dining companion ($10). Eggs arrived precisely as ordered, service was good, meal was very satisfying. A home-y... More

Actually wish we could give this one four and one-half stars. The setting is more "local hangout" than "fancy restaurant." Even though the place was crowded, the staff made a very good effort to make us feel welcome. It was almost as if they were welcoming back regular customers. The food was well prepared and reasonably priced. Darn it! We... More

Visiting my son who lives nearby we ventured over to the grill for a late Sunday breakfast. After a short wait, by the way you can some coffee while you wait outside. I had eggs, bacon and multigrain toast all excellent. My son had the quiche also excellent. Very good coffee. Love the inside, very homely. We will return.

The restaurant has a cozy feel to it and so my husband and I initially thought that we had found a treasure. However, neither or us enjoyed our meal. My husband ordered the Northside Sampler which included two eggs, corned beef hash, 2 pieces of bacon, 2 sausages, hash browns and toast for $11.00. The entire meal (including the toast)... More

Can't go wrong with Northside Grill for breakfast. Often meet clients there for work. The line during the weekend is long, but worth the wait. Coffee is superb

The best potato pancakes since my grand mothers. Cool place, friendly lots of locals- you know that you are in the right place and the prices are fair.

Northside grill has an amazing breakfast. My friend and I each ordered the Four Duces. I got the Oatbran pancakes, and she the blueberry oat. They were huge and fluffy and delicious! Neither of us came close to finishing our pancakes. The bacon, sausage and eggs were great too. Service was friendly and attentive, we didn't have empty water or... More

The day we chose for brunching at Northside, there was Elvis Presley impersonator. It made the place more lively and ambience more enjoyable. Pancakes never tasted so good, especially with the lovely bunch of friends I was hanging out with :)
