We had tried to meet frient Grillfire (formerly Mim’s), several times since they opened, but something always seemed to keep us from getting there. We finally made it on a Saturday eevening after a movie. Since they serve until eleven on Saturday we were able to get there in plenty of time for a leisurely supper.
Grillfire is located at the south end of a row of stores on Berry Hill Road. There are no handicapped spaces in the paved lot next to the restaurant. There is a curb cut from the lot to the brick walkway in front of the restaurant.
Street level, double doors, an entryway, and another set of double doors lead to the hostess desk.
The restaurant has been nicely redecorated with a combination of booths, tables and chairs. The back dining areas was easy to get to, and had ample space to navigate between tables.
Grillfire’s website says there is an “upbeat atmosphere with whimsical pressentations on the user-friendly menu.” There is a culture of “taking care of the guest”… and a focus on authentic regional and adopted international dishes…” We can agree with these statements. We were pleasantly surprised to be served fresh, soft pretzels with mustard rather than the usual bread basket. Each of us enjoyed our orders (I loved the veggie burger), and it was nice that they left a carafe of water on the table so that we didn’t have to keep bothering our pleasant and efficient server.We did not have any room for dessert but were delighted by the cotton candy that arrived at the end of our meal.
Multi-stall restrooms are located in the rear dining area. A single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restroom with a baby-changing station is located in the front dining area.
Grillfire was a pleasant experience that we will definitely want to have again.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.georgemartinsgrillfire.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
