The acoustic grill was already a Prince Edward County fixture before the tourism boom and before I moved to Picton 17 years ago. I'm not a regular but anytime and every time I decide to stop in for supper or a show I walk in...and feel like this is my place, my community, one place that never changes from the personal, face-to-face, acoustic style not electronic or digital or corporate. Owner Steve always a pleasure to catch up with like a hometown friend! I love to bring my "County Outings" guided tour and photography workshop clientele here after our adventures in and around PEC.More

We went here hoping to hear some local musicians, but alas, during the off season they only have entertainment on weekends. None the less, the service was great and probably some of the best chicken wings I have ever had.

Our monthly gathering of 6 old guys was especially pleasant last week due to the manager buying the 1st round to atone for the unexpected closure last month. I arrived a bit late and was looked after right away but some of the gents were...grumbling about the slow service. Worked well for me. Food and drinks were well received by all.More

We visited the Acoustic Grill during a weekend getaway celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We were so impressed with the delicious food, great music and most of all, the incredible service. We mentioned to Steve, the owner, that we were from out of town &...celebrating our anniversary and he went above and beyond to make our evening memorable and special. We look forward to our next visit to Prince Edward County and the Acoustic Grill. Thanks Steve & Georgia, Wendy & JimMore

A early reservation of 5:30 as this place, like most, is packed in summer. They texted day prior to confirm, excellent idea. Lucie was amazing. Friendly, smile, and did not rush us. Menue is basic. My wife had the corned beef and it was excellent....I had the Steak sandwich. This came in small bun with the one sided steak cut into pieces. It was ok but not best. Had a knarlly chunk in it. Prices are good. Place is alive and clean. Have been several times and will make the short trip from Belleville over again. Thanks again Lucie for great serviceMore

Stumbled across this hidden gem as it is tucked back on an alley off the msin street. . Good food, casual folky vibe, and great tunes. Check the website for live music. Staff is very friendly , and helpful. We will definitely return.

Picky eater and foodie, the menu was not as abundant as a franchise so I got a bit nervous. However both the burger with goat cheese and my fried chicken sandwich were AMAZING. I’m craving one the next day. And the drinks were great. Waiter...had great knowledge and suggestions. Place was packed and had live music so it’s obviously the place to be! Will definitely be making a special trip in from Durham region. Cheers!More

Our waitress was very attentive and personable. There was a mistake with my wing order….ordered dry Cajun but served butter Parmesan. Second try did not measure up to my expectations of dry Cajun. Were greasy and not very flavourful. Everyone else enjoyed their meals. Found...things a little pricey….a cocktail served in an old fashioned glass cost $13. Beer might be best choice of drink here. There was live music which was great. Will try again. Perhaps not on a holiday weekend.More

A perfect hamburger. The cow died happy. Indeed one expect they line up to be served to lucky diners. The server was happy to share local information. And the ale was a great match.

My wife & I were in Picton for the first time for a wedding and asked a downtown store owner where the best place in town was to have supper and we were directed a block away to the Acoustic Grill. We were not disappointed!...The food was excellent, the wait staff was attentive, polite & friendly. I spoke with the owner, Steve Purtelle, as we left and told him we had a great meal and were amazed at the volume of food coming out of his kitchen to feed customers. If we ever return to this area we will definitely return here!More

Went for lunch here on a girls weekend trip. Most of us had the Acoustic Jam - burger with extras. Excellent meal and they were very accomodating to make the meal suited to different dietary meals. Also good reviews with the Compilation salad -same chicken...incl as the burger meal. Great service as well. Went back for dinner and entertainment the following evening with no reservations and it was busy. the staff was very accommodating and worked to make the wait as short as possible. Nothing but good things to say for this pub style restaurant.More

You won’t find a better burger anywhere. The restaurant has a warm atmosphere and congenial staff. Our favourite place when we are in Picton. Live music is a bonus. It may be difficult to find but it is definitely worth the effort.
