We were in Gainesville for 6 days and ate here twice, would have visited more but didn't try it until later in the week. The food was great both nights and the staff was awesome. If you are ever in the Gainesville area, try it you won't be disappointed. Great food for the seafood lover or the landlubber.

This a very popular place, for a good reason. Recent dinner with family. There was something to please everyone. The calimari appetizer was delicious. The grouper special was extremely good.

Have eaten many lunches and dinners at NWGrill but only recently stopped by after Church for brunch. Great surprise to find a wide variety of unusual menu items. Will definitely return on a Sunday again.

I looked over the review on TA and decided to give this restaurant a try. The basil citrus martinis were fantastic, too bad I was driving or I would have had another. The salad and dressings were excellent. We were very pleased with our entrees (stuffed shrimp and tuna - bronzed) I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in... More

Every time we go to Northwest Grille, the food and service are both terrific. The servers are very attentive to your every need. The seafood is always so fresh; and the sides are savory and delicious. Even the prices are reasonable, especially for lunch. We will be back again soon I'm sure.

Northwest Grille is a great brunch spot. They have a great menu and then they also have daily specials that are usually hard to resist. There's a great bloody mary bar for those who like them (including crab legs, bacon, pickled veggies, etc), and if you prefer something sweeter they have mimosas, bellinis, poinsettias, and a signature cocktail with sparkling...

Stopped for lunch while spending the day in Gainesville. Wanted a special lunch so used TripAdvice to find "great" restaurant. Two of us had the crabcake sandwiches and both were disappointed with this choice. My wife made a different choice that included fresh fruit and she was very happy with her choice as the fruit was very fresh, plump and... More

We decided to take our parents out for lunch and we had heard about and read the reviews on Northwest Grille, and we were happy that we made the trip. My parents had seafood combos and thought they were great and we had the seared tuna! Yum, yum! Our waitress (Karen) was very nice and made sure we had everything... More

If you are traveling through Gainesville, (we were making the Orlando fun trip) and want to have something to eat besides Freeway or Chain food and you have the time this is a great little place to eat. A friend recommended it and we liked it so much that we made sure to stop on our way back.
