Downtown Grill is a wonderful place for any type of meal. My family and I love the menu selection. The steak tacos are delicious. We always enjoy the Alt, Porter, or Stout brews. They have excellent entrees that include burgers, steak, grilled chicken, or seafood....More

Pizza, burgers, pasta, apps. Some things come as a lunch portion which is nice. Cajun pasta was good, chicken strips were perfect for a kid.

There is something for everyone at this restaurant. And the location is very accessible from the State Street Garage. The wings got rave reviews from my group.

Very cool atmosphere! Upstairs and downstairs, casual, good bar scene. The service was great and our food was delicious. They have good happy hour specials! Onion rings and cinnamon apples were both stellar. Enjoyed the caper chicken also! Good chips and salsa. Definitely would return!
