We went here for our Valentines celebration. I would have given them 5 stars for the food but the horrible service we received brought the rating way down. We were starving after a day of skiing and couldn't wait to eat here. Our food was good but was quickly overshadowed by our inept waitress. She couldn't answer a single question... More

This brewery knows how to do it best! I can't find a better IPA. In fact try them all you'll most likely agree they have the ticket.

I hadn't been to Grimo's in years because their quality had gone down. When our friends picked the restaurant to meet at, I resigned myself to a mediocre meal. I was so happy to have Grimo's prove me wrong! I saw pork Osso Bucco on the menu and decided to take the chance. It. Was. FANTASTIC!! The meat fell off... More

My family eats here often and I have tried many things on their menu. My favorite at the moment is the shrimp pesto. I has wonderful veggies and plump shrimp swimming in a delicious butter/olive (?) sauce. I can never finish all of it and it makes an outstanding lunch the next day. They offer a cup of delicious minestrone... More

I lived in Naples for four years and I can say this is good authentic Italian. Nice ambience...romantic tables, Italian opera music. Meals come with soup and Salad...both were super tasty. Janey our waitress was awesome. Stuffed mushrooms were very good. I had gnocchi....out of this world! A+++

Great food- seafood/linguine and chicken picatta melt in your mouth! Local mom/pop in business for 31 yrs! Wonderful atmosphere and we loved our meal. Owner stopped and visited w/ us for several minutes which is something we will remember. Don't pass them, they are well worth the visit and their prices are very good, portions more than enough to take... More

This is family owned and run, Frank Grimo makes all the food. His soup is great and for the money is a good dining experience. We love the eggplant and his crab cakes are to die for.

We visited last year and weren't impressed. Tried again and still weren't impressed. Salad had discolored lettuce that had a funny taste. The soup was thick and not very good. My small bowl had a carrot in it the size of my wrist. My son said the osso buco wasn't very good. My husband liked his pasta but he would... More

Surprising good Italian food. Good selection of food and wine. We went on a Friday evening and the place was hopping.

We visited with friends. Immediate service. Nice wine selection within normal budget. We ordered appetizers that were very good as we're the mains. I really have to praise the prices. In this vacation area many restaurants go wild on prices. Not here. Really good value. Lots of elderly patrons which shows value in locally known.
