    We weren’t able to dine in to celebrate our sons graduation from NC State so we ordered our dinners to go. Food and service were perfect!

    Very loud, not for an intimate dinner. Waiter had to yell to be heard. Food good but watch that you are charged what is stated on the menu. My entree on bill was $3 more. When I told the waiter that there was a bone on the floor, he seemed uninterested. With some tweaks it could be great.

    This restaurant was great! The food was excellent, we got there early there were plenty of places to sit so they gave us a table. We enjoyed our dinner,and sat and talked for a while. By the time we got through the place was full. We will be going back!

    The Glenwood Grill has been a favorite for years. The food is delicious, perfectly sized portions (or you can have a half order on some items), attentive wait/bar staff. The noise level can be a little high but that seems to be the case with many restaurants. I can handle the noise knowing that the food is so great! I've eaten lunch and dinner and both menus are wonderful.

    As always, the food and service were amazing. Glenwood Grill is a favorite of both my parents and my daughters. Consistently high quality low-country/southern cuisine. Chef Johnny keeps his mainstays but always adds innovative and tasty items to new menus or as specials. Professional waitstaff are attentive without being intrusive, and they are never snobby. In the last few years it had become hard to find good restaurants that aren't pretentious--Glenwood Grill is that rare combination of quality and modesty. The parking is convenient, especially in bad weather or for mobility restricted diners who may not want to walk long distances from parking decks to get to restaurants in other areas of town. Don't miss the chocolate pecan pie! The duck is fantastic, not greasy. Mac and cheese is rich and creamy with al dente noodles that don't devolve into a mush if you stir noodle and cheese, perfect for children and adults. Fried green tomatoes served over pimento cheese are the best in the area--not over or undercooked, firm but not hard.

    Glenwood is my favorite restaurant.The food and service is consistently excellent. Not only do we try to eat there just for a night out but we like to bring guests as well. I have a birthday coming up soon and most probably will ask 5 guests to join me. Keep doing what you do.

    My guest and I had a wonderful time. Our table was ready when we arrived, the service was wonderful, the food was perfect and my guest from Pennsylvania was very impressed and when she visits again has already asked that we return to the Glenwood Grill. The atmosphere was delightful, candles on each table, I couldn't have been more pleased. Our server gave us special attention and was polite, knowledgeable and friendly. Truly an outstanding experience in every way.

    Glenwood Grill is dependable for delicious food, service and a variety on the menu so everyone will find something to enjoy. It is a great 'grab a bite' at the bar as well as sit down and celebrate a birthday with a group. Always a hit. The salad with Crab Cake is my favorite, and their specials are always great.

    We were celebrating our sons birthday. Everyone enjoyed the meal and drinks. Service was very good. Only thing was that we told waitress at beginning that it was his birthday. When dessert was presented to him we thought staff would come out to sing Happy Birthday. No biggie but this is what’s usually done in other restaurants. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable evening.

    The food was very tasty and unique. I loved seeing a different take on standards as well as some unusual options. The restaurant noise is very loud and the ambiance is loud and bustling. I also felt like the servers were rushed. They were all cordial but I could tell they were hustling to get people in and out.
