Very cozy reasonable priced restaurant.Good service, good food at affordable prices. Only thing needs improvement is bar tender, though we heard she was new...Food was served hot and was by far one of the best liver and bacon I've had in a long time, everyone else enjoyed their food. The french onion soup was also very good.

The Gate House Grill has been around for some time and I recommend you visit. It is cozy, the wait staff is pleasant and helpful and the menu includes many different entrees with savory seasonings and flavors, not typical of a suburban strip mall restaurant.

My husband and I went to dinner tonight to try it as we are new to the neighborhood, at first skeptical since it's in a strip mall but once inside it's a cute, casual, clean restaurant with a large menu and nice bar area. I had the broiled fish and requested it without butter, I expected it to be a... More

Over priced for slightly above average food. $47 for one drink, small cup of bean soup, crab cake salad consisting of two small tasty but barely warm crab cakes on mixed lettuce with two grape tomatoes and broiled fish with veggies. When asked to exclude potato for additional veggy we were charged 50 cents without receiving additional veggy serving. When... More

Four of us tried the GateHouse for dinner, two had lunch there before. Nice little place in a strip mall, service was ok, food, salads and meatloaf were ok, wine and food pricing quite fair.

Ate here with a group of coworkers for a birthday dinner and although the food was pretty good and the atmosphere was nice, the service was pretty terrible. After our waitress took our orders and brought our food, she only came by once to ask the "obligatory" is everything OK?" She never asked if anyone wanted water refills (we did)... More

Nice menu. Food good. ]rices are very reasonable. Wait staff was good. The p a tons at the next table were very loud, so it was hard for the waitress to hear us.

Was surprised to find out that this place has been here for 10 years yet no one in my party of four had ever heard of it. The place was very quaint and our server was very polite and efficient. There were many dishes on the menu that sounded quite appealing making my decision a very difficult one. I opted... More
