Everything about it was bad. The food was way late for us and everyone around us. The food was wrong for us and everyone around us. The staff training was poor like grabbing the rim of your glass with their fingers to refill your water after its been empty for long enough.

My husband and I traveled all day and we were looking for something quick. We had two chicken noodle soups and a brownie sundae. The bill with tip was 34.95. A little pricey I thought. Waitress was very good!

The Emerald Grill is not the best. HUGE portions though. Would suggest eating at a different restaurant. The clam chowder was homemade but you had to pick it the bay leaves and stems..and the bacon was fatty and limp. The meat on the sliders was tough and had no moisture. They (and the buns) tasted like they were microwaved. My... More

I stopped in here due to the fact that I was tired of being hungry. I'm staying at the holiday inn express, while the wife is in harborview medical center. There is not much to choose from between here and there restaurant wise, so this is a nice place for dinner. I ordered an apocalypse IPA, while waiting for my... More

We defaulted to eating breakfast here twice due to staying next door. The first time, they were understaffed, so the wait was a bit long, but bearable. Both times, we were fortunate to have Stephanie as our server, who was fantastically attentive and friendly. The food was surprisingly good as well.

This is a wonderful place to have a casual breakfast, dinner, or just a drink and some good time conversation. Stephanie will take wonderful care of you at breakfast, and the loveable manager, Richard will make sure everything is great, including his humor. We enjoyed ourselves both times we were there.

We came in for some drinks before heading out. We took a seat at the bar and the staff let us know they were actually closing in 5 mins. Richard the manager was nice enough to serve us one drink each and let us finish them while he and the staff were closing up. Great friendly service !!
