"Great burgers! Avocado was wonderful." - L E April, 2017

"I must say that the burgers are great with locally sourced ingredients" - Wilfred F. April, 2017

"Wow. Medium rare Cajun burger won't burn you, but it will make you love your life. Rotating craft beer list was incredible. I would list what I have, but they won't have it probably by the time you check this place out. Which is a good thing. The owner is involved in operations, so the staff feeds off it and loves it. Kim, thanks for the service and food. Mike, I appreciate the bar service--knowledgeable, friendly, and not pretentious." - Tyrone P. 3/9/2017

"Although RWC residents, we trek to Redwood Shores at least once a week, and usually more, just to eat at The Grill House. Why? It's consistent and the best value in the area. And their burgers are 5-star. Appropriately named, The Grill House specializes in grilling and consistently serves the best burger on the peninsula. (And we get around.) I'm most fond of their house burger (under $12) but you'll find it tough to chose from their speciality burger menu. Each burger comes with a side and, unlike most places, here the burgers AND the fries are excellent. My partner favors the black & blue (cheese) burger but also craves their grilled apple and chicken salad (with cranberries and walnuts). They support local purveyors and offer a wide selection of great craft beers and wines by the glass at better prices than most places. Their large one-room layout is half restaurant and half sports bar with several large TVs, which makes it an ideal place for groups or watching sports. In general, The Grill House is a wonderful addition to the area." - Sonya B. 12/10/15

"I live in Redwood Shores, so options nearby are limited, but I'm glad we have a good sports bar like The Grill House. I'd classify it as an above-average casual sports bar with great beer, and decent food. They had Lagunita's "Born Yesterday" IPA on top, which is very hard to find. so it's great to see they seek good craft beer. The chicken wings are awesome! The burgers are pretty good too." - Jonathan S. 12/8/15

"I must say, their burgers are awesome...and the fries are awesome (just the seasoned,...although people rave about their garlic fries I haven't tried them yet). If you're craving a good burger and great fries to go with it, you've got to give this place a try!!" - J W. 11/30/15

"Great Giant Burger!! Good, friendly, attentive staff! Good music! Clean dining room and kitchen! Would recommend to anyone." - Michael S. 10/7/15

"Great burgers cooked to your order. Sweet potato fries tasted like they were hand sliced in kitchen. Wings served elegantly on a blue cheese crumble salad. Good selection of micro brews. Can't beat the prices!" - Dave L. 9/27/15

"My husband had the burger and he really liked it as well." - Morgan M. 9/27/15

"Loved the food and the service. The food is awesome. I came with a bunch of friends and was able to taste the appetizers, burgers, pesto chicken, and pulled pork. It's all really good food perfectly cooked. Ordered a medium burger; got a medium burger. Also love all the local, California beers. Definitely a place I'm visiting again!" - Brian S. 9/5/14

"Solid burger- this was definitely the favorite out of all the plates that we tried. The burger was cooked well, and flavorful." Amy D. 8/2/15

"I've been here five times and enjoyed each meal. The burgers are outstanding and deliciously fresh and you can order it cooked to your request." Ann K. 5/3/15

"I have had the BBQ chicken quesadilla, sausage bites, GH burger, GH tacos (on Taco Tuesday, no doubt), and the pulled pork sandwich. Favorite so far is the pulled pork. GH burger is up there too because the bread was on point. I take my burgers seriously and always say that the bun is the most important part of a burger!" - Shanise M. 3/30/15

"Great food, service has been courteous every time I have been. The burger is great, as well as the BBQ quesadilla appetizer" - Michael M. 12/9/14

"The waiter asked me how I wanted my burger, and I said, RARE. I'm kind of foodie, so I knew I was taking a risk to see if they'd know how to cook it right, and cook it good. I was impressed cuz they were spot-on with the burger, and the bun was soft and fresh, like a brioche-type of bun. It was good!" - Jimmy L. 11/28/14

"We love the owners! They're always trying to improve and make this a spot they'd like to hang out. The buffalo chicken wings are INCREDIBLE and although I hate blue cheese, I can eat the entire plate of coleslaw that it comes with too which is tossed in this insanely tasty blue cheese dressing. Seriously - just try it and you'll probably fight over the slaw. Burgers are good, ribs are good, steak was bomb, french dip was incredible. I love the fries and the potato salad for sides." - Amy C. 11/3/14

"LOVE this place. It's HUGE, has FIVE TVs and really good beer/food. All of the beers are local and premium (and rotating so you can try something new). They have amazing food and drink specials every day. And they may be my new favorite burger spot...soo tasty." - Jill K.10/11/14

"I had the cheese burger cooked medium rare - perfectly. My wife had 3 tacos. Couldn't finish them, lots of meat. We'll be back again!" - Catherine M. 9/7/14
