The Gryphon is without a doubt the best restaurant/pub in Elizabethtown. Don't get me wrong, the other establishments (Lucky Ducks, Legacy, TJ's) have great social environments, but the FOODIE in me says Gryphon. The menu is always fluid, and I love it. They still keep some of the best on the menu going (obviously), and it's always a new experience.... More

It's Sunday, October 16, 2016 and my daughter and I just returned from dinner here. While my daughter is 8 and really wanted to try it, I had been here a couple of times and never had the best experience. However, things change, so I agreed to give it a try...again. We arrived between 5:30 and 6:00, to find one... More

The food here never disappoints. They have such a great selection of local farm to table options that are prepared perfectly by Tony. This is by far my favorite place in the area. Their new addition of skate to the menu is delicious! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable--check it out!

This place should be PACKED every night they are open.....they support local farmers, producers, breweries, etc....NOT A SYSCO TRUCK SHOP! This is a nano business with the owner/operator there everyday!!! Great to speak with the owner while they craft a bartender's choice cocktail....he made me a drink with Booker's 128 proof bourbon, El Dorado 15 year old demerara rum, Cognac... More

This place makes you feel like family! This is a great place to eat-never had a bad meal here. They use local ingredients in such creative ways. Great place to get craft beer-taps are always being rotated. Cocktails are great-pumpkin spice martinis yum!!

Terrific service, wonderful food, and locally sourced. The quality is superb, and there is always a fabulous variety of beers and cocktails to tempt you. The night we were there we also enjoyed a wonderful show from Garry Cogdell, a premier delta blues player! Great food and great entertainment!

Organic and fresh. The food is out of this world - seriously, we have never had a bad meal here. The staff is friendly, bartenders knowledgeable and the beer list extensive. The menu does change seasonally. The dollar tacos on Thursday nights is what brought us in and the regular menu and adult slushies keep us coming back! Check them... More
