Made reservations for 7:30, showed up right on time. We were asked if we wanted a table in the center of the room or wanted to wait for a booth. We said we would wait. Another group of 4 came in right after us. In a few minutes a group left from a booth and the hostess had the table... More

This place was awesome. We got take out the last time we went where my wife got a reuben and I got a greek salad with some steak tips. They were both spectacular. The wait was minimal and the staff were very hospitable and cordial. Will definitely go again!

Having lived in the area for 10 years, for some reason we had never been to this place. We were in the mood for a low-key, local-friendly setting, and this proved to be exactly perfect. Both dishes were completely delicious (baked haddock, filet mignon). The wine was a bit disappointing, but otherwise we will look forward to going back.

Delicious food, great service and a very nice location. The chef adds some light twists to traditional Greek cuisine without discaractherizing it. We had the Stuffed Grape Leave, the Stuffed Cabbage and the Lamb Souvlaki (that here they called kebob - a real Greek would never use a Turkish word for their plate in the menu). Another point the menu... More

Stopped for lunch - near empty but waitstaff not that attentive. Had special of French dip with french fries and a turkey wrap with arugula, smoked gouda and cucumbers. Both very good.

Putterham Grille serves high quality food in a nice, simple setting in an attractive strip shopping center. The place was pretty empty when we lunched on a Friday at noon. The food has Greek influence. We enjoyed the Mushroom barley soup and stuffed grape leaves ( which can also be ordered vegetarian style wherein chick peas replace meat). The service... More

Honestly I don't understand why the review in this restaurant are so high. Twice in a row I visited and was very disappointed with the food. The service is very nice and cordial but the food is plainly not good. The previous ownership/ version of this restaurant (a few years ago) was serving much better food.

After my nav system told me I had arrived 3 times -I realized this restaurant was in a strip mall at a very busy rotary. The trips around were worth it. Being of Mediterranean heritage, I ordered lamb kabob with a spinach pie (Lacror) starter.. I asked our server to check with the kitchen if they could sear (burn) the... More

Three old friends were going to get together for lunch. One suggested the Putterham Grill and it turned out to be a great suggestion. We were seated in a roomy booth and it was quiet so we could easily chat. The menu has something for everyone - breakfast items, sandwiches,soups, salads and entrees. I had a fish sandwich (one of...

We stopped there for a late breakfast. The manager/host/server was very friendly and communicative, the food was great (quiche and an omelette). The size of the portions was exactly what we expected, and the price was very reasonable. The decor was contemporary. It's a relatively small place in a small strip mall; I'm guessing that at peak times, it must... More
