My wife and I went here for Valentine's Day. The specials were delicious and the service was superb. Having read some of the other reviews on here, I think that it's important to note that there is a pub section in the front and then a more traditional restaurant section in the back. We ate in the restaurant section and... More

Uninspired neighborhood pub-type restaurant that serves tasty food at fair prices. The portions are a bit on the small size - fish & chips were 2 pieces of fish on top of an abundance of good french fries, a petit filet was petit, 1 floret of broccoli accompanied hanger steak, etc. Service was inattentive. Prices were fair

Local fave. Cold draft beer. Good menu with lots of variety. Decent wine list. Good service but outside can be slow.

London is celebrating their 25th year and it's the first time we visited. A great choice! It is lobster month and we had a birthday dinner for my wife, great evening. The Palm draft beer choice was excellent as well as the burger with bacon and fried egg. The lobster roll was good also. Probably should not have ordered dessert... More

This was not a bad place and food was pretty good. It's a good average place if your not looking to wait too long for a table. Waitstaff is friendly and a good place for a group or family.

We really enjoyed our visit to London Grill. The staff and locals are all really friendly, the drinks are cheap and there is also a daily happy hour. We only had a bowl of fries but all the food on the menu looked great.

The food was beyond amazing and all we got was happy hour food. The drink selection was great and the whiskey boy was amazing. What a beautiful location and a charming building!

Used our Chef's Guide book that we have had since 1997. To pick this spot. If a place is still around that long they must be doing something right. Easy to get a table on line and we moved our reservations up with no problem. Tried the foie gras pierogies, the beet salad and the gnocchi special - all were... More

Charming atmosphere...but the food needs to be tweaked. I had the Roasted Beet salad which was very good but very short on the pistachios. The Brussel Sprout appetizer was either made with old brussel sprouts or seriously under cooked. The sprouts were hard to cut and chew. My husband's hamburger had a great grilled taste to it and was a... More

I came here looking for a good plate of fish and chips and was extremely satisfied! Nothing is more disappointing to me than when I visit an English pub or equivalent place and they have really bad fish and chips. The fish is very moist and the coating is perfect...it is not greasy or too dense...it perfectly covers the fish... More
