We Went here to celebrate with a nice dinner. We both had the strip steak and it was excellent! We topped it off with a wonderful dessert. I can't say enough about this place. We will be back!

We were about to leave Manville after some shopping due to the area's lack of good places to eat. Then I remembered Drewby's Grill Pub, where a friend had turned me onto a few years ago.

The word months ago was that they'd be moving.......Soon. Well...... not yet, but the food is still delicious prepared quickly, and very reasonably priced. The staff is always friendly, and you won't find more casual place.

My family and I love going to Drewby's. The food and service are always great. And in addition to the regular menu, they always have interesting specials to choose from. Great food in a casual setting.

Don't be fooled by the atmosphere at this restaurant the food is so good! My husband and I enjoy eating at Drewby's a few months. Neither of us had had an entree yet but we love all the appetizers and sandwiches they make. The calamari is so good especially with its white dipping sauce (not sure what it is exactly)

Why go to a diner when there is Drewby's grill ! I have reviewed this restaurant before. The quality of the food has been and this time outstanding! Service is quick and attentive. Also, I like the fact that you can see the preparation and cooking of the food with their open concept kitchen.

I rated Drewbys as Very good because the food WAS very good! I had Spaghetti and Meatballs and my husband had pizza. That said, it was very loud and very busy! They had musical entertainment that night that was awesome. So this is a mixed review and if you don't mind exceptionally loud chatter, go and enjoy the food!

My dad turned 89 so I called the owner Billy and he personally brought a steak dinner over to my dad's home for me. That is real customer service! My dad said the steak was so delicious and he even got dessert for his birthday! Thank you so much!

Went for a casual bite late. The food here has been great on both stops. Their fare is usually less than even most diners, 3 of us ate, with drinks for about $40.00, and the staff has been very personable. The offer both $5 and $10 menu items on a special late night menu on the weekends.
