We go here several times a month. The wait staff are mostly long-time employees who get to know you and are very friendly. Albert at the front desk is a sweetheart. We have tried a lot of their menu choices and have not been disappointed. Good wine list. Awesome bread. Lively bar scene. This place is a gem and there's nothing else like it close by.

Enjoy Clintons Bar and Grille very much. The food is always good, as well as the ambiance. I"m assuming our server was new because she missed quite a few things but was friendly and attentive.

Food and service is consistently a five.
But the noise! Tuesday night at 5:30 not crowded no less, we couldn’t hear the waitress, and she couldn’t hear us. Very difficult to have a conversation with dining companions. Wish something could be done to correct that issue.

Truly my favorite place to dine. The food is always outstanding -- the freshest ingredients and creative presentation. The potato chip encrusted haddock is to die for. Kudos to the chef.

My brother, the world traveler, has rated the Clinton Bar and Grille world class for its unique menu offerings and very commendable wine list. It is now his favorite restaurant when he visits Central Mass, and I am glad I have such a reliable place to bring him.

Good meal in a vibrant atmosphere. Bread, oil and cheese offered reminded me of family dinners - outstanding. Good service. We came by on a Saturday at 8:15, it was busy and despite reservations we had to wait another 15 or 20 minutes. We enjoyed a drink at the bar and when we were finally seated the meals were very good and worth the wait.

I met friends, one of which drove from Fall River, the other Wayland. I knew it would be worth the trip, and it was. Service was great, food great, but I must admit, the white chocolate bread pudding sealed it!! I think you will now have two more devotees!!!

This has become our go-to place for a night out during the week. We go at least two or three times a month. The staff are very friendly but professional. The food is consistently very good. Wish they had some specials for a change of pace now and then (since we go so often), but the standards are very good. The fried calamari is excellent, served with marinara sauce and feta. Hubby loves the roasted chicken. Their Caesar salad is very good, and becomes an entire meal when you add grilled chicken, shrimp, etc. The bar is always lively and can get noisy. The space is lovely, with high ceilings, some window seating, and many booths. Parking in downtown Clinton at any time can be a challenge.

Excellent food, nicely and interestingly prepared. Good surroundings, can have a conversation without being drowned out by noise or loud music. They seem to be always playing country music when we go...should mix it up a bit!

This is a difficult review to write. One the positive side, the food preparation was excellent, the service was superb, and the waitress went out of her way to answer questions and explain the menu. On the negative side, there was a party in the center of the dining area on a Sunday night, and the noise was nothing short of bedlam. My wife and I had to resort to sign language to communicate with each other, talking to the waitress was difficult, and I'm sorry to say that the level of noise seriously detracted from should have been an enjoyable meal. We are going to try the restaurant once again in the middle of the week to see if the noise situation was an exception, or the inevitable result of close tables and hard walls.

Attractive restaurant however noise level was quite loud making conversation difficult. Food was good. Salmon was slightly over cooked for medium and peas that it was served on so so. App with buffalo chicken delicious. Drinks were expensive at $13 though a good pour. Would try again sometime.

We feel lucky to have such a great eatery close by. And so we go here at least three times a month. Parking can be a challenge. And the noise level at the always-packed bar can be loud at times. But the food is consistently good; the wait staff are very friendly, professional, helpful, and attentive; and the space is very nice. Our favorite dishes are the fried calamari, the Caesar salad, the roasted chicken, and the pizza.

The food was excellent. The service was also excellent. The specialty drink was not great and it's the second time I've tried one that I didn't especially like. But the food more than made up for it. Excellent food!! My only real concern was the noise level. It was difficult to hear my husband across the table, and more than usual because it was New Year's Eve. Some sound proofing might be nice. Otherwise, I love this restaurant - it's my favorite for special occasions.

Clintons Bar & Grille never lets us down. Reliably good service & food. It is 'energetically' loud but we were up for it so it's was perfect for us. Definitely make reservations because it's always packed!

We were there for dinner on a Friday evening and the restaurant was full with a private party upstairs and a jumping bar so the noise level was high. We would definitely go back but perhaps not on a Friday night.

We have dined here multiple times and had perfection. Unfortunately this time it was less than satisfactory. The food was outstanding the service was just plain awful. Waited over 10 minutes for a waitress to come to the table, when she arrived she asked if we wanted tap or bottled water and what did we want for dinner. We wanted drinks first. They arrived with attitude and a request for our dinner order, we asked for appetizers. She again asked for the dinner order when we ordered the appetizers and we told her we had not decided. When the appetizers arrived we ordered dinner. All 4 meals were outstanding. The waitress attempted to clear plates from all 4 of us while one person was still eating. We ordered desert, she came back and told us 2 of the items we ordered were not available. We changed our order, she returned to tell us they were out of ice cream to accompany the items. We asked for whipped cream as a replacement, no luck. The deserts minus the ice cream were comped by the manager. We were looking for a nice dinner with friends at a nice pace. The waitress wanted a speed dining experience. The restaurant was not full and there was no patrons waiting for a table so a slow pace did not cost her another seating before closing. Just had a poor attitude and not what we have experienced in past visits. We will be back but will not allow this person to be our server.
