Outstanding selection of beers for Rutland. I've been there twice (Tuesdays both times) and the place was pretty empty. Up side of an empty bar - outstanding attentive friendly service. Prices are a little high for a place with very little ambiance but the food...More

We decided to give Griffins a try .They have been open for about eight months. We found this place to have really good food and service.Needless to say we are looking forward to going back there soon. Go there and enjoy.

Great Rutland hangout with music, upbeat ambiance and delicious food, craft beers and wines by the glass! My first Hog wings made from pork shanks rocked the pig sty! After a Seafood Artisinal Flatbread pizza with mouth-watering lobster, we were filled to the gills. So...More

Wow! What a wonderful find in Rutland, Vermont. The special of the day, Baseball Steak (thickly cut sirloin wrapped in bacon), was tasty, the Mediterranean Salad with Grilled Figs was delicately balanced, and the free bar-b-que chicken wings at half-time for Sunday night football were...More

We went here after strolling downtown at about 9pm - they were one of the only restaurants whose kitchen was open later. Really fun menu. Nice beer list (though they were out of a lot). Food was very solid, and homey. Service was very sweet...More

I was passing thru Rutland yesterday. I drove around the downtown area looking for a place to eat. The oven in the front window of Griffin's caught my eye for potential of good pizza. Sure enough, Thursday was "Pizza and Pint" night. A really good...More

I have gone to Griffin's twice now, and also had food picked up for lunch a of times as well. The first time I went in, I was pleasantly surprised by their beer selection. They didn't have what I normally drink, but they have well...More

Friendly staff but too dark, uncomfortable seating, dirty bathroom, no real atmosphere. Food was good but pricing too high . Probably not worth a return trip.
