Great neighborhood joint atmosphere but not a dive bar. A little pricey but worth it for the turkey pastrami Reuben!, Gorgonzola waffle fries, yummy salads, and bread pudding. Decent wine and beer selection with rotating taps. As a local, this is on my rotating list of places to go.

The Fort Ground Grill is tucked back in by the collage and never a disappointment. Good place to meet with friends to talk, there's no load music or TV playing. Service and food always good, large servings for fair price. Love the cougar bay salad, the fish and chips looks amazing going by, going to try next time.

We visited the Fort Ground Grill on August 3, 2016 with friends. During the 1940's and 1950's the Grill was previously known as 'The Fort Grounds Tavern." Today the owners have turned what was once a "seedy tavern near lumber mills," into a family dining restaurant. My friends each ordered the Fish & Chips so my Wife and me ordered... More

Our family of four enjoyed this cozy restaurant. Great barbecue sauce for the chicken tenders (per kids). The veggie sandwich was a solid vegetarian option. The area around the Grill is fun to explore, and a nearby park is a great place to run the kids.

Talk about a wait. We waited 10 mins before a server approached our table for first time. Then waited 45 minutes for our lunch. Server said they were short staff and didn't expect this large of a crowd on a Saturday afternoon at 12:30pm! Come on people! If you can get past the wait, there's a table waiting for you.... More
