The Majestic Grille Restaurant Review: From film house to fine dining destination, this historic building debuted in 1913 as Majestic No. 1 and showed silent films for three decades. Today, owners Deni and Patrick Reilly have kept the film legacy alive by leaving the projection area intact and occasionally screening classic movies for their patrons. The food ranges from upscale European dishes to lower-brow Southern fare, such as the bacon-blue cheeseburger, Cajun chicken eggrolls, or the fall-off-the-bone barbecue ribs. Majestic’s dessert shots --- tiny servings of Key lime pie, tiramisu and carrot cake, served in shot glasses --- are locally famous. The wine list, crafted by sommelier Michael Hughes, is decent with a good number of wines offered by the glass. Don’t bypass the cocktails; the strawberry-basil martini is a must-try. Located a block away from the historic Orpheum Theatre, where touring Broadway shows are always playing, The Majestic offers a special pre-theatre menu for show-goers.
