My husband and I dined at Grey Rock for dinner over the weekend. The restaurant had 4-5 other tables dining when we arrived at 7pm - this should have been our first sign of how bad the place was, especially considering even the bar was empty. We had a glass of wine in the bar... It was fine, albeit the... More

Five of us had dinner here after reading the great reviews. We were disappointed. The food was fair. We ordered the BLT Salads and there was no dressing on them. The pork chop was over cooked. The scallops bland and the boneless chicken breast was not boneless. Extremely expensive for the mediocre service and poor food

A group of us met at Greg Rock to catch up and relax. Though it was a Friday and no inside live music, the view and our bartender Angel was all that was needed to make our visit special.
