Hospital Happenings – June 2019

The Lobby Grille, It’s Not What You’d Expect!

The Lobby Grille at Montrose Memorial Hospital has become a destination for many residents in Montrose and the surrounding areas. We thank you for your patronage and if you haven’t dined with us, we encourage you do join us for a meal!

Hospital food can have such a bad reputation and at MMH we love to hear “that’s not what I expected.” One of our goals is to offer a quality product at a reasonable price for friends, family and visitors of Montrose Memorial Hospital. We purchase many fresh products from our region to support and sustain our local economy. Fresh asparagus and corn from Honey Acre Farms, asparagus from Bob Nelson, eggs from Day Spring Egg Farms and amazing beef and pork from Bob and Roxie Lane at Day Springs Farm. Our menu includes wild salmon (from Seattle Fish Company), bison (from Highwire Ranch), choose your own ingredient stir fry, and salads along with a good old fashion pizza and hamburgers, made from the highest quality ingredients. Our salad bar is stocked with fresh produce and specialty entrees each day.

I can brag all day about the great food, and it’s also fun to see the Lobby Grille come up on Google Maps and Yelp as one of the top restaurants in Montrose. Here are a couple of comments from that site. “I would give six stars (out of five) if I could. They change up the menu to utilize fresh and local meat and produce. Everything is cooked right in front of you and they are very accommodating to any dietary changes you may have. Portions are great, and the prices can’t be beat! But the best part for me is the staff. Stupendous customer service every time!”
“Good food, gluten free and healthy options, very courteous service.”

The Lobby Grille staff has added another option called Grille on the Go. This is a collection of ready-to-cook meals that combine our custom recipes with local ingredients. All the ingredients you need to make your meal are combined with the recipes in convenient to go packaging so you can pick it up and go home and cook it. Each recipe comes with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions to walk you through the process. Meals include: Asian veggie kabobs, roasted chicken, shrimp alfredo, chicken marsala, peanut beef, sesame chicken, teriyaki beef and my favorite dry rub salmon. Each meal kit includes ingredients for two people for $15.95. You can place your Grille on the Go order at between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and then pick it up from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The best way to find out what we are doing is to come in and enjoy a meal. The Lobby Grille is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and we would be happy to show you all we offer. You can also view our menu at and click on the Lobby Grille. Check us out – I’m sure “It’s Not What You’d Expect.”
