Small locally owned restaurant. Hamburgers are the specialty and the are delicious. Drinks are great and so is the service. The only downside is the space. Not a lot of seating.

Just dropped in for a quick burger and this was a great little place to find when you are in a hurry. Very pleased with the entire menu but the burger was tops!

Very cute boutique type restaurant. Smiles on every face. Good cold beer selection and great burgers. The only drawback as I see it is only 8 tables. Also the service is very good too.

The food at Octave Grill is excellent! The monthly hamburger specials are always worth while to try. And the sweet potato, tater tots are fantastic! If only the space were a little bigger and the seats a bit more comfortable! The atmosphere is fun, though,...More
