My wife and I decided to visit Downtown Grill on sort of a whim... we wanted to just try someplace different. Boy was that a great choice! Entering the restaurant is in itself a little transitional... you drive into the bustling city of Macon and park on the street. Then you walk into the alley where it's much quieter and you begin to lose the city noises. Then when you enter the Downtown Grill you're greeted with the calm and quiet atmosphere that will make your meal a far different experience than that chaotic chain steakhouse. I'll take my review by stages. It started with the service. Our server was personable and knowledgeable. She truly made the difference in our dining experience. We started with cocktails and an appetizer. I ordered an old fashioned, and my wife had an Elderberry Refresher that stole the show! It was wonderful in the August heat... a very fittingly named drink. Our appetizer was the Barrata, a delicious blend of marinara sauce and cheese curds served with toasted bread. It was a wonderful dish that you don't find anywhere else, and it brought smiles to our faces. A great beginning. My entree choice was the menu ribeye steak, and it was cooked and seasoned perfectly. I normally have to order my steaks rare just to get a truly medium rare steak, but I decided to take the chance that the kitchen could produce a medium rare steak properly. So I ordered medium rare and it was perfect! You could tell that the kitchen knew what they were doing. It was the best steak that I've had in years. And my side dish of grits souffle was out of this world... and I'm a grits connoisseur! But again, my wife's choice stole the show! She ordered the Salmon Diavolo (sp?). A salmon fillet topped with shrimp and scallops. Oh-my-oh-my was it fantastic! But the funniest moment came when we shared the Lemoncello Bread Pudding for dessert. Our server brought the dessert to our table and we each picked up our spoon. We tasted the pudding and simultaneously burst into laughter! We both had the same thought... couldn't anything here be "just okay"? Every single thing that we had was really exceptional! We'll be back again and again. For a price that's comparable to the chain restaurant, you can have a fantastic meal with fabulous service!
It was wonderful. This is by far my favorite place to eat! 10 out of 10!
Absolutley the best spot in Middle Ga for steak. Cranberry and goat cheese stuffed Filet is my wifes #1 choice. I got adventurous with the Elk steak, it was a special that night. Wine selection is spot on and pairing suggestions where perfect. If the food wasnt good enough the service is by far the best in Macon.
My husband and I went to Downtown Grill on our first date over four years ago. I got the Pork Tenderloin and I am ashamed to say I have never ordered another entrée because it is so good, I order it every time we dine here! Amazing food, service and ambience. Highly recommend Downtown Grill and can't wait to come back when they open again!
Best twist on an old fashion that I've had- thank you!
This pasta was amazing! So creamy with a bit of tang, and it's a decent portion size too. I would highly recommend getting this with scallops, and they were cooked to perfection and paired well with the creamy tomato sauce. I would highly recommend this place for a date night or formal event!
Downtown grill is a family favorite. The duck was perfectly cooked as always and the service is always so friendly. And they did such an excellent job celebrating my parent's anniversary. Can't wait for our next visit!
BEST MAHI MAHI EVER! Also try the crab cakes and ahi tuna 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Added blackened chicken to the tomato cream pasta and it was wonderful!! I can't wait to come back for more. Excellent service and nice relaxing atmosphere. First time visiting but definitely not my last!! Delish!!
We had the fish of the day this visit. It was delicious, we had diablo style and all I can say is there is nothing like it anywhere. We absolutely love this restaurant, the food is always delicious and the service is excellent!! We have recommended it to everyone we know!
My wife and I enjoy the ambience of this place! Love the veal parmesan. For me goes great with pinot noir.
Everything about my dining experience here was great!! From the food to the atmosphere to the waitstaff!! I would definitely recommend anyone to come here and enjoy what Downtown Grill has to offer!!
This filet is hands down my favorite steak in Middle Georgia. It is always prepared perfectly and I typically get the sautéed spinach as my side. I will usually order sautéed onions as well and they are the perfect addition to this steak
My wife is a Crab Cake Connoisseur she stated this is the hands down Best Ever
Absolutely Fantastic I order this everytime we go there
I ordered the aged Ribeye special with the Pesto mashed potatoes and the sautéed mushrooms. Oh my goodness !! The steak was cooked to perfection the potatoes melted in your mouth and had just the right amount of pesto . The mushrooms I could not eat them all because my husband wanted to take some home to try and duplicate. Ended dinner with a pumpkin bread pudding with Pumpkin glaze . It was warm and delicious!! This restaurant didn't disappoint from beginning to end! And Adam was an amazing server! Thank you for a very unexpected wonderful dining experience!!
This had to be the best filet mignon I have ever had! So tender there was no need for a knife. I definitely recommend the Downtown Grill, you won't be disappointed.
Absolutely delicious! Cooked perfectly to order and nice temperature. So juicy!
Delicious! Love Downtown Grill with it's intimate atmosphere of an upscale British pub.
very great place to eat
Amazing! Best you can get!
I love the filet stuffed with cranberries and goat cheese or the one with blue cheese! Everything is delicious. One of my favorite spots !!
I always choose the fish of the day "diablo style" and i am never disappointed!
This is my favorite spot in Downtown Macon. Whether it's date night, a birthday dinner, girls night, or just because, Downtown Grill is my first choice. It has a cozy atmosphere that makes it perfect to intimately dine. You feel like you've slipped away from Macon. The food is amazing and the drinks are fantastic. I can't say enough good things!
The best steak I have ever had hands down.
Lamb Chops and Veal Parmesan. The Chocolate Chip bread pudding was amazing as was the pecan pie. I love that Sazerac Rye was available as well
Cooked to perfection and delicious! Can't wait to come back!
so good and juicy , I highly recommend this
This was the best steak I've had. It was cooked perfectly and it was very flavorful. The service and the entire experience is always excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. If you've never been here before, this is a MUST TRY!!!!
I always order the Filet Mignon, it cuts like butter and the flavor of the steak can only be described as "soulful". The sides are delicious and portions are perfect. We always begin with a cheese board and are never disappointed. The atmosphere is inviting and I always feel at home with the attentive service.
I am obsessed with this place! It's a regular date night for me and my boyfriend! Never disappointed!
Fabulous pick! Makes for a great variety when you can't make up your mind!
This is one of my favorite drinks! Elderflower is often overlooked but one of the most refreshing liqueurs our there. It paired perfectly with my filet! If you haven't given this one a chance, then you are missing out!
Perfection I pair the steak with the mushrooms a definite must try dish..
This is one of the best meals I have had. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection. They were season well and tender. Ah heaven!
Always the best choice of meat whether it is a tender filet or the most flavorful elk I have ever had. Downtown Grill is the best when it comes to service and quality.
I really liked the seasoning on the steak. It was full and peppery, but did not take away from the buttery meat flavor. Also, I would like to see more wagyu on the menu soon!
Really enjoyed the lamb chops. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. We visit this restaurant for special occasions as we love the food and the ambiance!
I had the filet, lamb and quail. Everything was delicious and cooked exactly as ordered. I will be back soon!
I'm very partial about my grilling, but hands down it was delicious #WHIPGAME
