Coach Grill – A Historic New England Landmark

Restaurants rooted in tradition and history tend to stand out among the rest. Their timeless atmosphere can really bring out that feeling of nostalgia and comfort. Coach Grill was originally founded in the 1930s, and since then, its staff and chefs have worked hard to provide superior service and fine dining.

Our restaurant sits on the original site of the Red Coach Grill, a favorite in the Massachusetts community, but was unfortunately destroyed by a fire in the 1970s. A few decades later, the grill was rebuilt and renamed as the Coach Grill, and old customers came flooding in with support. Locals and visitors alike admire our New England inspired menu and courteous staff and are truly the heart of this longtime establishment.

Serving at dinner every day and brunch and lunch on the weekends, the Coach Grill menu is comprised of a variety of steaks, fresh seafood, and an extensive wine collection. Some of our favorites includes starters like the Charcuterie Platter, a combination of cured meats, mozzarella, olives, and jams, and the Nueske’s Bacon-Wrapped Scallops, locally sourced and covered in applewood-smoked bacon. Order the Surf and Turf dinner entrée for taste of both the land and sea, featuring a juicy filet mignon and your choice of crab-stuffed shrimp, crab cake, or lobster tail.

You can also join us for brunch to enjoy specialties like the Filet and Lobster Eggs Benedict or the Crème Brûlée French Toast, or for lunch choose a lighter option such as our house Chopped Salad or the Vegetarian Tacos. With any of our dishes, you will definitely want to ask which drinks and wines pair best with your choices.

If you are planning special events like a rehearsal dinner or corporate lunch, we also offer group dining. Our elegant local appeal is great for large functions anywhere from 10 people to 250 people. Each group dining package come complete with customized menus to suit your party’s needs, and we even have pre-meal platter options for in-house services or outside catering. Look at our website to see all the event spaces we have to offer and start planning your event today.

At Coach Grill, we pride ourselves on tradition and want to share our rich past with each guest that walks through the door. Our hope is that each guest continues to make wonderful memories and enjoy amazing food during every visit for years to come. Reserve your table today online or just give us a call.
