Westford Grille
142 Littleton Rd., Westford,
MA 1-978-392-0708

There is a new place to dine in Westford. The Westford Grille opened in April of this year and we discovered it about August. Since then Alex and I have gone there several times and a friend and I have had lunch there. On these occasions the service was friendly and attentive and the food quite nice.

Luncheon has selections ranging from sandwiches to entrees that are more like dinner than lunch. The sandwiches include a grilled half-pound hamburger served with lettuce, tomato, and onion at $6.75, grilled portabella mushroom sandwich at $7.95, grilled Reuben at $7.95 or lobster at $11.95. French fries and a pickle spear accompany all sandwiches. You might try the grilled sirloin tips at $8.95, grilled top sirloin at $9.95 or chicken Parmesan, served over
linguini at $8.95. The seafood selection includes grilled yellowfin tuna, salmon filet, swordfish or rainbow trout, $7.95 to 9.95. With these you may choose one accompaniment such as red bliss garlic-mashed potatoes or green beans, etc.

At dinner there is a nice choice of appetizers including oysters on the half shell at $8.95, pan-seared scallops on a cilantro red pepper sauce at $9.95, and BBQ half-rack of ribs at $8.95. Additionally there are soups including a soup of the day and salads or vegetable antipasto.

There is a good selection of wines both by the bottle (priced in the $16 to $24 range and higher) and by the glass (priced in the $4.50 to $6.50 range). Parking is closeby.

There is a wide selection of entrees including a whole section called Sauté Entrees. I almost missed the mahi-mahi with mango coconut curry sauce, as it was listed here instead of under Seafood ($17.95). Meats and poultry entrees range in price from grilled New York sirloin, 12 oz. with mushrooms, peppers and onions at $21.95 to chicken parmesan, twin chicken breasts at $14.95. Additionally there is a wide selection of Entrees from the Sea. These include baked haddock at $16.95 to grilled yellowfin tuna at $19.95. There is a choice of two dinner accompaniments, which might include red bliss garlic-mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Desserts are also available with seasonal specialties such as apple crisp.

I would recommend the Westford Grill for a close-by, well-prepared meal served in a pleasant, casual atmosphere. Although they do not take reservations, they will put you on a stand-by list, so it is worth calling ahead.
