Today was our first indoor dining experience at the Garden Grill since before Covid. We have had wonderful experiences dining outside during the past several years. On this very cold January day it was time to return.
Three accessible spaces in the paved parking lot are located close to the ramp to the accessible entrance. There are three stone steps at the main entrance.
Once inside I found it as lovely as I had remembered. The Victorian style is maintained in the beautiful, cozy front rooms, reminiscent of a living room, The fireplace was perfect for this day. Victorian wallpaper, chandeliers, and other accessories as well as tables beautifully set with fabric tablecloths and napkins, combine to complete the aura. Several other dining areas each have a different atmosphere, but are all quite nice. There is a small, full-height bar area to the right of the entrance, and another larger bar in the back. The Victorian dining areas are not quite as spacious as the other areas, but everything is navigable. Several people using walkers did not appear to have any difficulty getting to their tables. The back areas have considerably more space between tables. Actual photos of the owner’s family can be found on the walls.
There is a party space on the second floor. Take note that the only way to reach it is by walking up a full flight of stairs ( 13 steps ).
As soon as we were seated, a bread basket and glasses of water were brought to our table. Our server was lovely, bringing us drinks and giving us plenty of time to decide on our order. The lunch menu is quite varied, from soups and salads, to terrific sandwiches and entrees. We decided on a Portobello Mushroom sandwich and a Chicken Luciano one. Both were served with fries, lettuce, tomato and pickle. Both were delicious! Before we knew it two hours had passed! It was a wonderful, cozy and delicious way to spend a January day!
Two large, accessible, single-occupancy, restrooms are located in a hallway near the rear dining areas. If you are a wheelchair user, it may be a bit tight when using the sink, due to the garbage can being located again the wall there. There is a baby-changing station.
Garden Grill is a lovely venue which we will happily return to.
As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, http://www.gardengrill.com">www.gardengrill.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
