I went with my partner. We visited in October. We had a lot of seafood in Maine already and were looking for a good steak. This was the place! Great service. Wonderful food. One thing I recommend from reading the other recommendations is to ask the price of the specials before ordering or you may be paying more than you plan! Otherwise, they are very clear on how your steak will be prepared and make sure you get it as you order.

When remembering special occasions at restaurants the food has to be on point, the ambience has to have a special vibe to it and the service must meet all your expectations. The Grill Room delivered on all fronts. The food was of excellent quality, we sat tat the Chef's Bar and our server very helpful in assisting us with our menu selections. Go here, you simply can't miss...

This is a wonderful bar for couples who don't need or want a table. The bartenders are always attentive and helpful, a full menu is served at the bar. The wine by the glass selection is nice and my husband's martini was excellent. A fun place to experience without having to make a reservation - they are always crowded.
