Recently dined with friends and ordered the fish tacos. Not only was the Mahi-Mahi perfectly cooked for the tacos, they were served with a generous portion of black beans and rice, both delicious. My friend ordered deep dish apple pie ala mode, and it was large enough to satisfy all 3 of us! Highly recommend this excellent restaurant!

The wait on a Sunday morning around 10:00 is always a long wait but with patience it's worth the wait. The prices are reasonable and the food is great and food portions! The customer service is great as well. I have also gone during lunch and the menu is just as good. This is our favorite place when we go... More

The Grill is consistent in the quality of their food and the servers are usually on top of their game, very friendly and prompt with your requests. The food is fresh and healthfully prepared no matter what your order.

We eat here every time we visit Whittier for a concert. They take reservations which is a nice added feature. Everyone in our party of six had a different dish and they were all delicious. The salmon was exceptional as well as the pasta dishes. Always save room for dessert, or better yet, order some cobbler to go. The service... More

Very average café near Whittier college. The staff is very friendly, and the service is pretty good. Plus, parking is a breeze behind the restaurant. Those are some great positives. However, the food is just your basic eggs, plain omelets, and standard fare. If you want some food that’s a bit more interesting, just go a few blocks to downtown... More
