Description: Welcome to Evan's Old Town Grille, or just "Evan's" -as the locals say! Located in the downtown and historic district of Boulder City, we've been successful thanks to a healthy and vibrant mixture of travelers from around the world and -our favorites- the always friendly and loyal locals! We're known as a place where friends meet -and given that our extensive menu includes meals ranging from classic chicken entrees, to fresh salads, house specialities, fresh-cut seafood, make-your-own pasta dishes, kid's dishes, and "always something Greek," it's no surprise that friends meet often at our place. So, if you're new, come on in. Check it out. Meet a friend, or as is one of the greatest charms of Boulder City, make a new one in a matter of minutes by just walking in. If you've been to the restaurant before, welcome back. It's good to see you again!

to be an upscale choice and we stopped for dinner.

The server first tried to put us in a table so tiny you could not play monopoly on it, much less have a meal. It was the second table on the right, next to the table at the window. Claustrophobic trigger warning!

When I asked for a different table, we were moved promptly.

The server was mostly pleasant, the food was unremarkable and although the menu was attractive, the food felt far short of where it should have been for the pricing.

We were still eating when a young man came and stood very close to the table and put out his hand in a flat gesture, in a peremptory manner, indicating we were to hand to him the used bread dishes. Wow.

A bit later, we were finishing the meal and the same young man grasped my husband's plate, even as the fork was mid-air. I said, Excuse us, please, but we are not quite done yet, we'd like few more minutes.

The young man withdrew and shortly thereafter, the server came to the table with a tight smile and said, "So was that few more minutes satisfactory to you?"

Maybe it was just the uncharacteristically hot weather but the staff seemed aggravated and in a rush and as the restaurant was not one quarter full, I felt it was unnecessary to use thinly veiled sarcasm under the guise of hospitality.

The restaurant was so much less than we hoped it would be and the calimari was very tough and there was too much sauce on the chicken parmesan.

We would probably not return.

It was a busy evening at Evans and we hadn't booked. We were found a table for four straight away. The service was good, friendly efficient and helpful. The menu was mainly Greek and was varied. The food was good and a pleasant meal was enjoyed by us all.

We walked by three restaurants in the afternoon to check out the menus - Evan's was the one we chose because the staff were very welcoming, happy to show us the menu, happy to take a booking. When we went back at 6, the place was packed, so we were glad we had booked. The waitress was really helpful, the food delicious, and all was reasonably priced. Loved the bread sticks.

This is a small restaurant with a small town feel, but the food quality was great and PORTIONS are HUGE.

We called in advance for a party of 5 about 10 minutes out at 6pm on a Friday night...it was just filling up and seemed other tables may have had reservations. The restaurant was packed when we left.

Loved the Angelo. Everyone raved about the baked potato.

All in all, we thought the service was great and food good.

We would definitely come back.
