We would have driven right by this place if we hadn't seen an article talking about this is where locals choose to eat. The locals have it right as usual. The food top quality and prepared well. Despite being extremely busy we were able to get a table for 2 without reservations on Thursday night and the staff could not... More

The food here is consistently delicious. Everything from the wings to the steaks are all done to perfection. The owner is on hand to greet you most times, which is an added bonus. He is friendly, shakes your hand and makes conversation with you. Upon leaving, he again shakes your hand and thanks you for visiting his restaurant. The servers... More

My husband and I have never been to the Paxtang Grill, so we decided to give it a try this past weekend. We were seated right away. I ordered a grilled chicken, onion, spinach, and blue cheese flatbread, and my husband ordered the wing special. The waitress did 'warn' him that their wings were small; they were actually a perfect... More

Paxtang grill has nice fresh food that is a cut above ordinary barfood. This is a community establishment like I would imagine a neighborhood pub to be in England though I haven't had that experience. Service is quick and friendly. There are special events (trivia night for example). Crab cakes are a specialty. Prices are much better than at other... More

This is a small, local, neighborhood bar/restaurant. I had the avocado BLT from the lunch special menu with fries. The sandwich roll was not real fresh and for me, the bread is an important part of what makes a sandwich good. There was a good amount of bacon on the sandwich and appropriate amount of avocado, lettuce & tomato. The... More
