I love The Daily Grill so I go there often, but on this particular night, I went with my sister. The place itself is very clean and polished – more so than the other two restaurants I went to, but it’s also much newer (about 18 months old). The décor is trendy without being over done – there are nice wood accents throughout the restaurant.
I would describe the food as gourmet with comfort flair. Everything on the menu looks appetizing and the ingredients are always fresh. Unlike other restaurants, the chefs are willing to modify any of the items on the menu to fit both dietary needs and taste, so you’re bound to leave happy.
We started off sharing the spinach and artichoke dip that is excellent. As an entrée, I went with the Bang Bang Shrimp, which is served lightly fried over an Asian slaw, topped with an orange chili sauce. It’s delicious and just the right amount of spicy. Also, the presentation was first rate. It came in an orange bowl on top of a square green plate – I loved the contrast of the colors.
For dessert I had the flourless chocolate cake…that alone makes eating at The Daily Grill worthwhile! It’s moist and decadent served with strawberries and ice cream – the perfect combination of hot and cold.
Overall, I think this is a great restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere. In my experience, the service has always been great with servers that are attentive, courteous, and informative. Though it’s located on the grounds of the Calvary Chapel, the Daily Grill has quite a few customers that aren’t part of the church…it’s definitely worth the trip.

The Daily Grill - a cafeteria-style restaurant located within the campus of Calvary Chapel, a popular evangelical church - is difficult to find but for Evangelical Christian, worth the trip.
The interior is friendly sophistication serving tasty menu items of American dishes with Asian and Spanish twists. I advise saying grace, as this is a Christian atmosphere and if you plan an after-service meal, sit in the back of the chapel and leave 5-10 minutes early or be prepared for long lines.
Although it purports a welcoming atmosphere, it is not the restaurant I would elect to take my integrated group, which includes persons of varied faiths and life-styles.

The restaurant was difficult to find even though I am from the area. The location is on school property, between two large campus buildings. It was like an oasis when I finally found it, because it’s really a classy looking restaurant with subdued lighting and nice décor. The food was exceptional.
I had a salad to start, which was very good. And the skirt steak I ordered for my entrée was done perfectly, medium rare. They make their own steak sauce, which was delicious, and the garlic spinach I ordered to accompany my meal was excellent. I also ordered garlic bread with dinner and it made for a very tasty meal.
I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. However, the grill is difficult to find and directions must include that it is part of the Calvary Chapel and located between buildings with no obvious signage. The Daily Grill is a wonderful restaurant with an exceptional menu that is prepared with great care. The service was very nice as well.
