Great food, and great service. Torrey has been our waiter each visit and he has a great personality and his suggestions are always good. The special I had was salmon stuffed with their great crab cakes was the best meal I have had on the island. The crab cakes are really good as an appetizer. Torrey has made each trip to the grille a great experience.

On a mini vacation from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood area. GREAT service! Kasey was great. Very attentive staff! My husband had the blackened grouper with potato salad and loved it! I had the roast beef with garlic potatoes which was amazing. Not to mention the game day drink specials. Definitely will be back!

Lindsey A.

My husband and I shared two sandwiches for lunch – blackened haddock and patty melt burger. We got fries as sides. Both were out of this world. Prepared perfectly and we didn’t wait long. The service was fantastic and the decor beautiful. Very clean and well maintained. Will definitely return.


Food was fantastic and the friendly service was excellent. This restaurant is a must do while on the island. We visited three times within the week of our stay. Julia (the manager) did a wonderful job of making sure customers were pleased with their entrees. Keep up the great food and service and this corner grill will be around for many years to come!
