Shore Grill and Grotto
Reservations are encouraged. Please join us... It's a Shore Thing...
Late Night Menu and Lounge available after 10:00 pm
Our dedicated and professional staff will emphasize personalized and attentive (yet discreet) service.
We love it here. Always great food and service. You will not be disappointed.
It was all just okay, nothing special. We liked the service and the food, but we won't come again as nothing reLly was that attractive.
Have been to Shore many times have never been disappointed , Chicken Parmesan excellent.
We sat in the patio section on a nice evening so traffic noise is unavoidable but it was still pleasant. Food was very good. I will definitely go back.
We were the only people inside the restaurant, single waitress very busy dealing with tables outside. Service had long delays due to lack of staff. I had indicated on my reservation that we were celebrating an anniversary.... not a memorable experience.
We noted in our reservations that it was our anniversary and there was no hostess we were told to seat ourselves and there was a large party sat next to us that was overly loud and obnoxious. The menu sounds more exciting than the food that came out, just ok experience. The little be music was nice but it was in a different area and we were not told in advance where it was
We selected this restaurant because it was advertised as having live music.
We reserved through OpenTable and requested to be seated within view of the live music. We arrived 5 minutes early and mentioned to the older lady who was at the hostess desk that we were a few min early for our reservation and as per the note on our reservation, we would like to have a table in view of the live band.
The lady proceeded to bring us to a table which was in a completely different room than the band - we could not see or barely even hear the music. Once we arrived at the table, we (again) asked if we could please be seated within the room where the band was playing. She told us to sit there for the time being and she would return to bring us to our new table. Our reservation was 3 days ago and we are still waiting for her to come back.
We were left there for about 25 min before our server arrived to take drink orders. At that point, we gave up on seeing the band. We were forgotten about several times during the meal. Our glasses were empty for most of our dinner, dirty plates were not picked up and on average we waited 30 minutes between courses. We ordered cocktails, appetizers and mains. We had intentions of ordering desserts but our dinner plates sat in front of us for over 30 minutes after we finished eating - by the time our server showed up, we were so tired of sitting there that we asked for the bill instead.
If you are looking for a good meal and half decent service, go somewhere else, you will be disappointed here. We were. I am 100% positive that if this restaurant did not offer live music, they would be out of business.
(If the older lady at the hostess desk is reading this, we want you to know that we saw you avoid walking past our table 3 or 4 times after you promised you would be back. Someone with proper customer service would have AT LEAST came over to explain why we could not have the table we requested. We are embarrassed for you).
Thank you! Casual business venue required..was great...staff exceptional!
Great Ambiance, definitely not a Mediterranean focused cuisine, food was very mediocre, appetizer was brought out along-with the entree, which the hostess took back on request. Food was not great. Pasta sucked, pizza was mediocre. Reservation time between OpenTable and restaurant was off by 15min but didn’t have to wait thankfully. Probably won’t be back anytime soon.
From the moment we first sat down, our server was attentive and very helpful. The food was wonderful and exceeded my expectations. The musical atmosphere was a plus.
Food was flavourful but timing on delivery of our first course and our main course was off. The main was taken back to be kept warm :-(. We waited about 15 minutes for a missing component of our first course and which meant our main course sat under heat lamps and was brought back before we were finished with our first course!
Doreen is great, the fajitas were awesome!
The atmosphere was very nice, good for a quiet evening dinner but get lively and exciting at night with live music. Service was great and very friendly. Food arrived in a timely manner and was delicious. I highly recommend the fajitas. I would definitely go back to try more options on the menu.
The Shore was our "go to" place until this past Saturday night. We don't know what happened! Dinner was not nearly as good as it always was. We asked for some bread with dinner - we were offered sliced bread with Margarine (??). A real shame as we raved to our friends about this restaurant. We won't be back. :-(
We would have preferred to sit outside becasue it was a beautiful day but the tables and chairs were worn in and unenticing and thus the ambiance outside was not appealing. The patio could be updated. The dining room was better but we were looking forward to the windows to be open. However, the pasta dishes were excellent but my fajita entree had very little steak and the equivalent of three peppers and onions. I wouldn't order the fajitas again. Our waiter was very attentive, intuitive and overall great.
Excellent time! Highly recommemded. Great choice of appies!
The Shore has a great atmosphere with a great selection of food. From stone baked pizza or a sirloin fajita to filet mignon or lamb tenderloin. Something for everyone is on the menu and for the money it is one of the best deals in Port Credit.
Great food, loved the band! Crowd was fun! I will be back!
Great meal in the lounge area with excellent site lines to the band. We ate first and then the band came on - great band (The David Love Band) who were full of energy and got the crowd involved. It was our anniversary and we had a wonderful time! THANKS
Fathers Day meal. Placed seemed understaffed. Had to call on people to even get to our table for water and drinks orders. Service improved once we raised our concerns. Oysters were very good. Remainder of meal was really just average. Very little imagination in the protein / vegetables/ starch combinations. Satisfied but not memorable.
Father’s Day Celebration
Friends came from as far as Hamilton to dine. We sat in the dining room which suited us well. The atmosphere was extremely pleasant, the food was absolutely delicious, and the band playing at the bar managed to have us dancing in our seats :) A very good time was enjoyed by all.
This place is unbeatable for food, service, hospitality, live entertainment AND it has TWO massive patios in the summer. Right on the PC Strip and "right on"!!!
If I could give a recommendation on improving the over all look or expectation for me personally it would be that staff especially the ladies had a more clean professional uniform. Capri leggings with running shoes I felt lowered the standard of the restaurant.
Food is regularly GREAT, but that specific night the dish was too salty. Sometimes it happens. Will definitely return, other meals have been fantastic. Had a very good time this night as the band was also superb. Thanks.
Great service, large portions ! Friendly atmosphere.. always a great meal
Service was nice, place is good but dish is not very tasty. Very generous on the amount of food served, but lack of flavor. I had lobster pasta with white vine pesto, and I couldn't feel none of the basil not pine seed nor white vine.... Just oily and salty. Lobster itself was good but overcooked and salty.
The food was very bland. The same dishes tasted better on prior visits.
We found this gem a couple of years ago and it has become our favorite go to restaurant. We recommend it all the time.
Steaks excellent; potato a bit cool in centre.
Service abrupt and she clearly assumed we had been there before. (It was our first visit) Had to ask about specials. Server was concerned about taking our order quickly and generally felt rushed. Near the end of the dinner l, we had to ask about dessert menu and were told it was in the back of the drinks menu like we should have known that. Decided to skip dessert based on this flippant answer. Had to summon other wait staff to get bill. Went to Scoops for ice cream.
Food delivered promptly and quality excellent!
Would give this place a second chance and hope for better service. Tipped at 10%; our usual is 15 or 20.
As soon as we checked in at the front, we were seated and our waitress came over. She gave us some time to look at the menu and we ordered our meal. While we waited she served us bread and butter and we ordered tea as well. Our meal came in a timely manner (bad weather so the place wasn’t that busy) I ordered the peppercorn steak and my fiancé ordered the lamb tenderloin. The food was delicious and very filling. We ordered the brownie as desert and that was lovely as well. Overall I will definitely go back. Great ambiance with a live band by the bar (we were seated in the dining area...we wanted more privacy) I can’t wait to go back in the summer.
We have been there before for dinner and we enjoyed, but this time we went for lunch and the service was slow and not cordial. The food was not of the same quality as before.
My servers Tracy was wonderful and the food was excellent!
Great spot. The food is quite good. I've never had a dish there which I didn't like.
Nicest spot for dinner in Port Credit.
Went there on St. Patrick's Day. As you would expect the Lounge was packed (standing room only). That was fine for us as we came for dinner. The food is good. Eating in the Dinning Room allows you to hear the live band (7 days a week) while relaxing with a nice meal.
Best spot in Port Credit! Great food. Great value. Great times. 😀
We had lunch recently at this restaurant and were impressed by the quality of the food at a reasonable price. We’ll be back
Almost empty restaurant except for two little kids that were running around and yelling/playing
The food though was quite good, our server was nice and attentive as well
We were celebrating our 49th Wedding Anniversary which our daughter had stated when she booked on-line.When we were shown to our table a very nice display was on the table saying Happy Birthday!!!!
Took a friend out for her Birthday. Shore Grill and Grotto had a lovely ambiance that created a cozy and warming atmosphere. The server was very friendly and was great at recommending drinks. We both enjoyed our food. Would definitely go back again!
