About

Locally owned and operated, we started in 2004 with a simple philosophy: to provide honest, high quality food at a reasonable price. The Point at Glenwood Restaurant and Bar serves classic American fare with the occasional Southern and Cajun twists. Upscale, yet casual, we are the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary, entertain clients or just sit back and relax! Children enjoy playing with pizza dough while waiting for their meals, and adults can enjoy a delightful assortment of wines and spirits.

Featuring a full bar and an eclectic array of daily dinner specials, we offer one of the finest selections of food and drink in the Triangle. From our wood-fired pizzas, hand-cut steaks, and fresh ground-in-house beef, to our tantalizing pasta and seafood dishes, we can please even the most discerning palate. Stop by for lunch, brunch, dinner, a beer or any combination thereof.

Frank Winslow, a Raleigh native, is the owner and proprietor of The Point At Glenwood. He is a graduate of North Carolina State University. Frank has served in our community with the Boy Scouts, and other organizations. After leaving a successful career as a professional airline pilot, he decided to follow his lifelong passion for cooking and entertaining. Thus a new restaurant in his native neighborhood was born, a place where he can meet old friends and make new friends, while creating and serving new dishes for all to enjoy. In his free time he enjoys sailing, fishing, and the beach.

Cecelia Winslow, also a Raleigh native, is our Administrative Manager. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest University. While she has an impressive professional career, Cecelia has truly distinguished herself in her service to the people of North Carolina. Outside of the restaurant, Cecelia is an active community member, having served in various positions with organizations such as The Junior League of Raleigh, the North Carolina Museum of History, and the North Carolina Museum of Art Society.

Alan, our Chef, moved to North Carolina over a decade ago, bringing with him a rich experience in the culinary arts. Alan’s cooking ranges from Southwestern to French, with time spent training with Tony Zuccarelli where he perfected his Italian fare. He further honed his culinary skills at several private clubs, such as Columbus Country Club and the prestigious Petroleum Club of Houston. Alan gained further restaurant experience as General Manager for Brinker International, Cantina del Rio and Yancy’s.

Mike Buttafuso is our General Manager.
