The Grillroom Restaurant Review

: This restaurant has no problem attracting a lunch crowd, but dinner business can ride on whether or not there is a show at the across-the-street Shubert Theatre. Nevertheless, there is plenty of room for improvement here, be it the steaks, gumbo or bison meatloaf. One of the saving graces: stiff drinks. Be sure to have your cut of steak topped with a roasted garlic head. Otherwise, stick with the burger, ribs or French dip.
