Delicious food, great service and a very nice location. The chef adds some light twists to traditional Greek cuisine without discaractherizing it. We had the Stuffed Grape Leave, the Stuffed Cabbage and the Lamb Souvlaki (that here they called kebob - a real Greek would never use a Turkish word for their plate in the menu). Another point the menu... More

Stopped for lunch - near empty but waitstaff not that attentive. Had special of French dip with french fries and a turkey wrap with arugula, smoked gouda and cucumbers. Both very good.

Putterham Grille serves high quality food in a nice, simple setting in an attractive strip shopping center. The place was pretty empty when we lunched on a Friday at noon. The food has Greek influence. We enjoyed the Mushroom barley soup and stuffed grape leaves ( which can also be ordered vegetarian style wherein chick peas replace meat). The service... More

Honestly I don't understand why the review in this restaurant are so high. Twice in a row I visited and was very disappointed with the food. The service is very nice and cordial but the food is plainly not good. The previous ownership/ version of this restaurant (a few years ago) was serving much better food.

After my nav system told me I had arrived 3 times -I realized this restaurant was in a strip mall at a very busy rotary. The trips around were worth it. Being of Mediterranean heritage, I ordered lamb kabob with a spinach pie (Lacror) starter.. I asked our server to check with the kitchen if they could sear (burn) the... More

Three old friends were going to get together for lunch. One suggested the Putterham Grill and it turned out to be a great suggestion. We were seated in a roomy booth and it was quiet so we could easily chat. The menu has something for everyone - breakfast items, sandwiches,soups, salads and entrees. I had a fish sandwich (one of...

We stopped there for a late breakfast. The manager/host/server was very friendly and communicative, the food was great (quiche and an omelette). The size of the portions was exactly what we expected, and the price was very reasonable. The decor was contemporary. It's a relatively small place in a small strip mall; I'm guessing that at peak times, it must... More

I went here with my Uncle and Cousin. It was my first time. I rarely eat lamb, but my Uncle recommended it. He ordered it as well. Everything here was fresh and delicious from the salad to the Spanakopita appetizer. It looked just like my homemade Spanakopita, that I make occasionally. Very good portion. I shared it, because it was... More

Had dinner with 2 other couples the other night. Had heard of the restaurant through an event we had attended that had given out samples of food from various restaurants in the area! The lighting and vibe were very calming. Industrial, but very cozy. The greeter took us to the table and was very friendly. Waiter came and talked with... More

With a varied menu, Putterham Grille is an easy go-to restaurant to please either a couple, family or group of friends getting together for dinner. It's the perfect place to drop in when you're not in the mood to cook and want to have a good meal. The food is perfectly fine and although the atmosphere is a bit of... More
