Germantown Garden Grill is opening Friday, Sept. 25. The steakhouse will offer something many other restaurants cannot: poolside dining.

The heated saltwater pool will be lit up with colorful lights in the evening for poolside dining.

There will be seating on the main deck and Vesper's individual bungalows will serve as small, private dining rooms that can hold up to 15 people. The bungalows and lounge seating have permanent cover from the elements, but the deck seating will have umbrellas. Heaters and tents will be set up in the colder months, so guests can continue dining outside comfortably.

As a steakhouse, there's the expected filet, NY strip, ribeye and prime rib on the menu, as well as surf and turf options. Steaks can be upgraded to include lobster tail, crab cake or crab legs.

Other entrées include beer can chicken, teriyaki salmon and whole lobster. There's a raw bar, seafood tower, three types of wings, soups, salads and a burger, as well, among other menu items. For dessert, options include a six-layer chocolate cake and a layered, rainbow birthday cake.

As for drinks, guests can order cocktails, wine and beer, plus a few frozen drinks like the fall-inspired pumpkin piña colada.

During Eagles games, bottle service will be available, along with game day specials. GG Grill will have large-screen, HD TVs placed around the property to watch the game from the deck and lounge, while the individual bungalows each have large-screen TVs inside.

The restaurant will be open for dinner Monday through Sunday from 5 to 11 p.m. On weekends, GG Grill will open at 11 a.m. for brunch. The full brunch menu will be available online soon. Reservations can be made on OpenTable.
