Great place! Food is excellent, staff friendly and attentive.. My wife and I stopped in for dinner last week. We were really impressed. A large number of varied beers on tap, and a great wine list. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and attentive. i believe we have found our new favorite restaurant. Highly recommend.
An unexpectedly great experience. We stopped in at the Duvall Grill on a whim and were blown away by almost everything there. The decor and ambiance may be rustic, but the service and food were exceptional. If you don't have kids, take our advice and go in the left hand door, into the bar, and let Keith take care of you. He's a great long time resident of the area who talked to us about every dish and the origins and ingredients involved. And make no mistake, the food here is great. Made with local ingredients by local bakers, farmers and suppliers. When you hear foodies talk about finding restaurants with fresh local ingredients and influences - this is the kind of place they're talking about, only it's in the context of an old Duvall bar. We will be back often.
Great family restaurant, excellent food.. My family and I have frequented the Duvall Grill on numerous occasions trying breakfast, lunch and dinner. By far, the best breakfast in town, highly recommend the eggs benedict! Lunch and dinner have been great as well and the kids really enjoy the crayons and butcher paper. Its nice to keep them occupied while trying to have a relaxing meal. And the bar side is a nice change when you want to get away from the kids in the dining room. The service has always been prompt and friendly, however at times they could use another server. Huge selection of drafts and a full bar. The dinner menu seems to change every few months and everything we have tried we were very pleased with, excellent meat loaf and steak. We will definately be back.
Duvall has four, count them, four teriyaki places. That's about one teriyaki place for every five residents. So you would look forward, at least one night a week, of having something other than the usual teriyaki chicken and rice. You won't get it, though, at the Duvall Grill.
The place has great ambiance. Tall ceilings, large light-filled windows, and nice enough dining furniture. The people running and staffing the Duvall Grill, however, simply don't care about other human beings, let alone food.
We've eaten there twice, the second time just to test our initial disbelief. I had the BBQ ribs. The recipe must have come from the former BBQ place that occupied the site and is now Teddy's BBQ up the road (former Duvall Cafe). I'm from Kansas. I know BBQ. This was not even related to BBQ. There was supposed to be a cornbread muffin with the meal, which never came (much like the waitress who never came except to take the order and give us the bill). My wife had the salmon, which was overcooked. Here in the Pacific Northwest, it is illegal to overcook salmon, but I finally talked my wife out of calling the cops.
Second time, we wanted lunch and so thought, how badly could the Duvall Grill screw up a hamburger? As it happens, pretty badly. It tasted, if you can use that word, like cardboard. Dry. Fiberous. Chunks kind of broke off in my mouth, much like, I imagine, a dog bone would. There really was no taste at all, except for the ketchup or whatever you put on it.
We really shouldn't have to drive to Redmond or Woodinville or Seattle to get a decent meal. We should, by all rights, have choices other than which teriyaki do you want tonight. After bawling our eyes out leaving the Duvall Grill, we languished for another year until we heard of a new restaurant, the Grange Cafe, opening up with a locally-grown cuisine. Our hearts lept! And then we actually ate there, but that's another sad story.
