We love the Garden Grill. It is a home away from home. Chrissy, the manager makes great drinks and Gloria the owner, is one of our favorite people. The food is always outstanding and the service extraordinary. They love us here and the feeling is mutual.

I was here last Sunday and cannot say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. The food was really good. I had the seafood platter and was amazed how fresh and delicious it was. My bf had the steak and it was like butter. The atmosphere is wonderful. It makes you feel like you are in someone's home. I cannot say... More

I don't like to give bad reviews and I like very much to support Long Island businesses, but I can't in honesty say many nice things about the Sunday Brunch at Garden Grill. Perhaps they do better at preparing fresh meals, but the brunch is dreadful. In summary, I had to spit my food into my napkin on multiple occasions.... More

The restaurant was crowded and we were never rushed. Drinks were averagely priced for this type of restaurant $9 for wine $7 for beer. We were able to... More

I had the duck, my wife had the seafood capellini. Food as usual was excellent, service a bit off, the place was crowded. Friday nights a musical band plays so it's a bit louder than normal. Gloria, the owner, is the best and is so gracious. Chrissy the assistant manager makes the best drinks.

Wonderful food, nice pace for dining. We didn't feel rushed, but we didn't have to hunt for servers either. They had plenty of assistors to support the waiters -- water glasses stayed full, someone brought bread around regularly, dishes were cleared promptly. If you're on a budget, try the Sunset menu from 3-6 p.m. It offers a wonderful selection of... More

My friend, who recently moved to Smithtown, and I visited the Garden Grill today for the first time for brunch. We arrived close to the end of the brunch service period, but decided to stick with brunch and eat fast! The staff was extremely courteous even though we were eating at the end of the brunch period, and were very... More

We took our daughter to the Garden Grill to celebrate her birthday and had a delightful time. The bartender was wonderful and made our time so much fun. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed their choice. I will definitely be going back to dine!!

Food was good although my steak was very fatty - yet the marinade they used was very tasty. Our server was painfully slow. We sat upstairs; service might be better downstairs. Nice atmosphere though.

Four of us decided to try the Garden Grill for a dinner. I am in a wheelchair and confirmed with the restaurant that they are accessible regarding the entrance and bathroom facilities........and they were. When we arrived, we found the parking lot easy to enter and park, and there were handicap spots as well. The ramp to the restaurant was... More
