CONTEMPORARY GOURMET DINING
GROVE is a full-service restaurant and events venue offering contemporary gourmet dining. The menu is elevated yet approachable and locally inspired.
GROVE Restaurant, Patio and Ballroom is the newest offshoot of PIER 22, the award-winning waterfront destination headed by restaurateurs Hugh Miller and Greg Campbell. A fine-casual restaurant, GROVE specializes in a wide-ranging selection of house-made meals served in several distinct dining areas giving guests a choice of cuisine and scene.
The restaurant draws its name from the sown acres of great evergreen that have long provided an idyllic existence for those living and visiting the Lakewood Ranch area. The pine found in our logo embodies elements of our values including heart, balance and spirit. GROVE is reimagining an immersive dining experience, and “We’re committed to using quality fresh ingredients along with innovative cooking methods to inspire, nourish and wholly satisfy our guests,” notes chef Greg Campbell.

Introducing Greg Campbell, winner Best Chefs America (2013) and recently designated Manatee Tourism Ambassador (Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau: 2017). Campbell’s menus draw inspiration from several types of international cuisines and his French grandmother’s kitchen. Emphasis is on quality ingredients and hands-on cooking. His passion and intrigue with the culinary arts remain just as strong today as when he was a teenager first starting out in the industry as a line cook at a fine dining Italian restaurant in his hometown of Augusta, Georgia.
