Went for my daughters birthday. A very pleasant evening, martinis were excellent, we had the seafood grits, the filet and crab cakes. The atmosphere was warm and obviously a popular local spot. Waiter was efficient. Would definitely return.

Our group of 14 with confirmed reservations, arrived at the restaurant at 5:30 pm and were told we did not have a reservation. The restaurant had just opened for the evening, there were only 2 tables seated and after much discussion and disgust on our part, the host finally allowed us to sit with the promise that we would be...

I always forget about this place, probably because it's a 'grill' and located in a strip mall, but the southern food menu is amazing. We had an array of starters, entrees and desserts and everyone was pleased and full. Great atmosphere as well. We will try to remember this place and go more often.

Earlier today I had the best Caesar salad I have ever had anywhere. Simple as that. It followed superb she crab soup and was accompanied by soft tasty rolls. All in all a late lunch in Raleigh NC that caught me by surprise and made me want to go back for more. Service was excellent by the way. Prompt and... More

Had dinner last Friday night and this place was fantastic. Every aspect of our dinner from service to all four courses was top notch. She Crab Soup is a MUST try and the new duck entree is phenomenal. Please do yourself a favor and save room for the cobbler as well.

There is a charm here and and understated elegance to the menu. The offerings touch on Southern classics. There are lots of seafood dishes to try ranging from Shrimp and Grits, Seafood Grits, Organic Salmon, to name a few. I tried the A La Carte Salmon with beet salad and goat cheese and parsnip mashed potatoes as a side dish.... More

The Glennwood Grill is hard to find via GPS because it is located in a small strip mall off a service road that parallels Glenwood Avenue, but it is well worth the trouble. We knew we had come to a special place when we entered. It definitely exudes class combined with a certain neighborhood vibe which is reminiscent of a... More

Met here at the advice of a colleague for dinner mid week. The service was impeccable and the food delicious - including the fried green tomatoes starter, the blackened sea bass for entrée and creme brûlée for desert. Highly recommended.

Thank Nene M
