Really nice ambiance for patio dining. Located in Old Town Laquinta, great location for people watching, art, or casual shopping. Happy Hour features great discounts on food and drink, with great selections. I highly suggest the Grill Burger, with cheese and bacon! Good Eating!!

My husband and I found this place through trip advisor. The reviews were good and the food and price lived up to them. I had a special, flatiron steak with a peppercorn sauce. My husband had the meatloaf special and nothing remained when he was done. My steak was perfectly cooked to medium rare and it came with crispy thin... More

We were seated at probably the worst table in the restaurant. There is a door to the patio behind our chairs and people were going through that door all the time. Some people are nice. They held the door when it was closing. Others just let it go. So we ate while listening to nonstopping "bang, bang, bang...." Service was... More

Family of 5 ate dinner here. Price was reasonable. Fish tacos were good. Burgers good. Salads were generous portions. My son loved the half rack of ribs. The place was crowded so we ended up eating outside which was nice but it was quite windy. They use drapes to block out the wind.

We had planned on going to a different restaurant this evening, but they had a one hour queue. We wandered around Old La Quinta and found the Grill on Main.

Relaxing atmosphere, great menu and live music. Nice combination of a sport bar and upscale restaurant. I don't remember when was the last time I've seen people dancing in the restaurant.

My husband had the Thursday special Turkey dinner and a Caesar salad. The turkey dinner was good and perfect comfort food for his cold. He didn't care for the Caesar salad but then he never likes restaurant Caesars. I had their hamburger. It was yummy. The buns are actually one of the better parts of the burger. We had a... More
