We were seated, it took about 10 min for a waitress to come to the table-we ordered drinks-appetizers and entrees. About 10 min later (no drinks yet) she brings our appetizers and takes off and comes back with our entrees-I had to ask her for the drinks--coffee came--no spoon with it-had to ask for a spoon. This was the worst service I have had in this restaurant and I have been going there for some time now.
The food was fine, no problems there at all.

Always enjoy stopping in for Lunch at the Grand Tavern...can't beat the food and service. They offer a great menu of items and the daily $8 menu for Lunch you can't go wrong. The Pulled Pork Sandwich, Tuna Sandwich, Cod-Father, and the list keeps going. Stop in and give this one a try. And don't worry if there is a Game on TV, you won't miss it at this location; there are move than enough TV's on the wall to catch the game!

Have eaten here many times, just tried the short ribs, excellent. My go to is the chicken parm-always take half home, large portions. Spinach and artichoke appetizer is delicious, drinks are a good pour. Monday night is very busy but worth it---special prices at $6/8 what a bargain.

New waitress last week, but she was really trying so no big deal, I am sure we will see her again soon...I would recommend.

Went out to dinner with friends who love this place. I guess we thought it was just a bar from the name, but not at all.

We sat on the patio. 7pm on a Friday and no wait to get a table. Super nice server got our drinks right away and waited patiently while we chatted and looked at the menu. Lots of appetizers, excellent salad choices, nice burger menu, plenty of sandwiches, list of pasta dishes and other entrees. Anyone could find a dish they liked. Drinks were great, but the Bloody Mary had one spice I couldn't identify and wasn't my favorite.

Hubby had the fish and chips and it was truly amazing. Perfect mix of batter on the fish. It was Friday and apparently it's all you can eat, but all you can eat really comes on one plate. Seasoned fries and awesome coleslaw. I ordered the nacho and it almost funny it was so big. They brought it on a plate the size of a serving tray. Crispy chips, meat, beans, veggies with a ton of cheese and on the side was a good spicy salsa and sour cream. I have no idea why we were surprised because we saw a lot of dishes go by and the portions were all huge.

Since nobody was waiting for a patio table we had coffee and one more drink. Bill for 4 of us with drink and tips was about $100. I know my fish was $11 and nachos were $8. Appears they have some good specials on prices during the week with their regular menu, but really these prices were so reasonable to begin with.

We will definitely go back. Also was nice that manager, server and hostess all said goodnight as we left. I am glad we were outside, because it was busier and louder inside and we wanted to talk. Bar and inside were very busy.
