We have visited Witherspoon Grill several times over the years & have yet to be disappointed. The food is very good & the service is great. We sat at an outdoor table with an umbrella on a breezy, sunny & warm Spring day. I ordered the sirloin tip sandwich served on an onion roll with an aioli sauce. The steak... More

The staff was excellent and very capable at handling my wife's dietary restrictions. Both our meals were perfectly prepared, I had the filet and my wife had the salmon.

My wife and I took my brother and sister in law for lunch at this restaurant. We had a nice table looking out at the public square in front of the restaurant. We all enjoyed our sandwiches, but the highlight for me was the bananas foster bread pudding, which came with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Unlike some places,... More

I've had a few of the appetizers at Witherspoon, the crab cake, crab dip and lobster bisque. All were delicious but what really stands out to me is the wine.

The menu is always enjoyable but has become a bit dated. The service is very good and it has a fun bar scene as there bartenders are some of the best in the area. We always try to eat at the bar because it a bit more lively on that side of the restaurant.

The staff are true pros. They are friendly, efficient and work like crazy. I have never had a bad meal here - and I dine here about twice a month. While it is not cheap it is worth the price: food is well prepared, of good quality, tasty. The Grill is kid friendly too - what a bonus. I love... More

Really like a New York City steakhouse without going to NYC. While the beef is excellent, so is the seafood. However, the star of the show is the porterhouse steak for two--a bit pricey, but not if you think of it as two dinners. Add a shrimp or crabmeat cocktail, the freshest oysters or creamed spinach, and there it is--as... More
