An American Bistro with Old World Charm

The Grille – an American Bistro Style Restaurant and Bar, located in the American Hotel – is open 7 days for lunch and dinner and a tasty late night Tapas menu is also available. Facing Main Street, the old world charm of the restaurant is reminiscent of a New York style steak house. Guests can enjoy a cocktail in the restaurant’s bar or while sitting with friends in front of the fireplace at the Lobby Lounge.

The contemporary menu offers a tantalizing variety featuring steaks, seafood and bistro-style dishes.

Please call The Grille for daily luncheon and dinner specials.
