BEWARE of Food Poisoning!! Made 3 people SICK
My husband and two of our friends dined at the Grove Grill for our friend's birthday and three out of the four us got sick almost immediately after eating. Our friend's birthday was ruined and my husband and I spent the rest of the night in the bathroom.
I called the Grove the next day and was told that no one else who had eaten there got sick and 'sorry'. Unpleased by the response I e-mailed the owner.... NO RESPONSE.
To me this a really big deal - 3 people got VERY SICK from eating there! The food was also very VERY sub par, especially for the price, but that's not what is most important.
I e-mail AGAIN and finally a response saying they were sorry we did not ENJOY a menu item and that the food wasn't too our expectations and that they would credit us or something.
I almost laughed when I read that. It has nothing to do with us ENJOYING or the food meeting out expectations, WE GOT FLIPPIN' FOOD POISONING FROM YOU PEOPLE!
Nothing about us getting sick or trying to find out what made us sick was mentioned but I still thought it was fair of them to offer to credit our meal ( I had to mention being credited for the food - when I spoke to them on the phone nothing of that sort was mentioned. This is very unclassy for a so-called classy place )
I responded explaining to them that we used a gift card and tipped cash, blah blah blah, and NO RESPONSE.
I wait a WEEK ( like a did before ) and still NO response.
I write again asking if anyone has recieved my e-mail.
So today I informed them that I would make sure people knew how we were treated and that we got sick off their crappy high dollar food and that is excatly what I am doing! BE CAREFUL OF THIS PLACE FOLKS!
Have eaten at the Grove multiple times and food, service and atmosphere are always wonderful. Dining room layout is neat and unique in that you are eating right next to people but spaced so that conversations are still private.....still don't know how they do that. Bar is a lot fun after work and on weekends.....happening yet relaxing...nice combo. Grove is 1 of my favorite restaurants in Memphis.....try it and you won't be disappointed!!
I had heard this was a nice place....... wouldn't return or recommend to a friend. The soup was barely warm. The waiter didn't listen to me, when he asked if I liked my meal I told him I didn't and he asked then if I wanted a box to take it home..... Nothing special.
Don't ever eat any where when your fish actually 'arrives' to your table before the plated food does.
The bad smell was choking. The odd thing is that most of the local patrons didn't even ackowledge it !
We left after one sip of wine !!
Clearly the best in Memphis. It is the only local restaurant that resembles a classic restaurant you might find in Chicago or New Orleans. The steaks are unbelievable, the seafood delicious, and the soups are incredible. The service there has no equal in Memphis. Quite expensive, but what do you expect from such a great establishment. My wife and I return over and over...
This locally owned steakhouse offers some of the best Prime Rib and seafood in Memphis and also features a large

A cool, dark stop on a hot Memphis day, this place is a regular East Memphis haunt. During the Great
Depression, turnip green sandwiches were sold at this location, but the fare has improved greatly since then. The burgers ...
The burgers are definitely big and juicy, but many customers are drawn by the deep fried onion rings and mushrooms,
the live music on Sunday afternoons, and the late evening hours. If you are looking for something besides burgers, ...
