Diner Reviews
  • "Great for lunch. Had a salad, chowder, and beer. I'd go back again!"

  • "We were looking for dinner - and it was late when we got there. Granary Tavern fit the bill. Great salads, Hamburgers and a real find - the Fried Chicken and Waffle combo. Drinks were tasty and staff very friendly. A short walk from the Intercontinental."

  • "The service was great! We didn't feel rushed and got to take our time with our meal. Thank you for that!"

  • "I have been going to Granary Tavern for a year or so. Love it! I have brought numerous people here for a first visit and they too enjoy it equally. Normally I would have looked at their menu and thought it was too eclectic for my tastes, and I wouldn't have tried the food at all. I am a meat & potatoes type of person. We had a work party and food was ordered without my looking at menu, I was hungry, tried the food and enjoyed it. Went back, looked at menu and was in disbelief I ate any of the food. Couldn't even figure out what to order so tried a few apps and have been enjoying it ever since. The flatbreads are amazing. The chicken fried chicken is delicious. The garlic chips and dip are to die for! and very reasonably priced."

  • "The Granary was a terrific place for dinner in this exciting city. Ate outside where the sounds of kids playing in the water park added to the enjoyment of the location. We ate scallops and fish and chips and both were delicious. Finally, the service was attentive, friendly, and made us feel very welcome."

  • "The food here doesn't disappoint, for the most part - we did order two bowls of the garlic chip and dip - one didn't seem to have any garlic in it, although it was still tasty. The rest of the food was quite delicious. Our server was bland/lacking personality, but at least we didn't see too much of him (...good? bad?). I will return tho! Still love it for the ambience and great menu."

  • "This was not our first time at the Granary but I believe it will be our last. We went on a beautiful Sunday afternoon to get some lunch. We made a reservation and were seated right on time. It was busy both inside and outside the restaurant but we got a great seat. That's about all that was great. The service was TERRIBLE! The server had no personality and was mostly absent during our meal. The food was average which is surprising as the last two times we were there it was great. I can live with average food but when you pay near $100 for 2 chicken sandwiches, 1 burger and 1 salad (with 2 adult beverages) I think a simple "hello", "can I get you anything else" or "thanks for coming" is warranted!"

  • "We booked a table for 1pm on a Sunday . Assuming that we would be having breakfast. (I checked the times on their website before booking and it said 9 - 2pm) and this was also the time on their menu outside the restaurant. But when we asked for breakfast menu we were told that they changed it and that they were only serving lunch. Its a horrible feeling, when you are really looking forward to a breakfast and then told NO... (it was only 1.15 too...) VERY disappointing...."

  • "Nice spot on a busy street. Great appetizer selection, good outside seating and friendly service."

  • "Decided to go to lunch and try out the Granary. The outside of the building kept drawing my eye and I was anxious to try it out. It did not disappoint. We got one of the last tables outside on a beautiful sunny day. Although a high traffic area it was still nice to sit outside and people watch. The food was very good with a wide enough range of choices. The lobster roll was as good as we had heard."

  • "I've been here before and it's usually been pretty good. This time two of us ordered chicken sandwich which was described as being on a "Brioche" bun...Not sure that Shaw's 8-pack hamburger buns really qualifies as "Brioche". Plus the toppings were just kinda scooped on in an unappetizing fashion. I realize a chicken sandwich is not exactly a culinary marvel, but a little care would be appreciated. Like I said, it's been really good before, so I'm prepared to right it off as just a bad day."

  • "Met up with some girlfriends for a delicious dinner at Granary. Two of six of us are pregnant, and the bartender was able to come up with some fun mocktails so we didn't feel lame for not imbibing! The menu was great - everyone enjoyed their food. Our group had everything from salads to short ribs and flatbread and dessert. It was delicious. Our server was attentive without hovering or making us feel rushed. Overall a great evening and no complaints!"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The food was excellent - the flatbreads were very, very good. Decent beer list as well. The largest downside is that it is very noisy and having conversation is difficult. Otherwise, a good place for dinner. "

  • "Great mid-range spot! Fancy and good drinks/food, but not over the top."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "My companion and I split the lamb burger and the salmon BLAT sandwich. Both are wonderful. Fries and chips are wonderful (ly delicious and bad for you) as well."

  • "Granary offers a good variety of brunch options, all quite tasty and nicely priced. Our waitress during this visit was not as attentive as our previous servers, and she was sporting a hickey. That, along with witnessing her flirt with and kiss one of the patrons was not too appetizing. I do plan to return, though. The food is that good."

  • "The food during bruch was amazing- however the waiter was a bit rude. He made sarcastic remarks about taking too long to bring over the waters and take our order. We weren't in any rush to begin with, but the remarks made it uncomfortable. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Our meals were ready, in what seemed like, immediately! Great spot for a fast bite! The chicken was thin and slightly dry..."

  • "Delicious brunch menu perfect for enjoying early enough (prior to 11am) on a quiet weekend morning. Loved the interior and would love to come back for lunch on our next visit to Boston."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "We went with a bigger group for brunch. It was easy to book and overall we enjoyed the experience. The food was good, but the coffee needs improving (and it would be good if they had an espresso machine). Service could have been better."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We had to up our reservation from 8 to 9 and then 9 to 11 and the restaurant handled it great. Good mildly upscale bar food, good drinks. Fun place to take people that isn't too expensive but is still nice"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We stopped here during my bachelor party and had a great time. Fun atmosphere and good beer menu. Our waitress was excellent too. My only real complaint was that the bouncer was a touch odd. When one of my guys said we were here for a bachelor party the bouncer said "I don't know why you would come here for that". I am sure the owner of the Grainery would disagree. Otherwise, great spot and I would come here again."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "I've been here many times & have always enjoyed the food. The service has always been excellent & the ambiance great. Unfortunately brunch was disappointing. I ordered the pancakes & although I’m sure they were delicious, they dumped so much butter & syrup on them before they were delivered to my table that I couldn’t taste the actual pancake anymore. I wish I would have known, as the menu didn’t stipulate, that they put both on for you as I would have asked for it on the side. For someone who recently had gall blatter surgery, I have to watch my intake of rich and buttery foods. I would have liked the opportunity to control the extra slab of butter that was put onto my hot pancakes & therefore melted before it got to the table. "

  • "Poor service a ghost waiter. No plates for appetizer. After first round of drinks served he was not seen for some time. Food was good but overpriced for portion size. Will likely not return. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "There was a very loud group behind us and when I askedto be seated somewhere not next to that group, the server acknowledged they were very loud and then moved us to a table that was also immediately next to that group (she moved us one table over). I hadn't seen my friend in a year and we could barely hear each other over dinner. There was also a group of extremely loud middle aged drunk men screaming at a nearby table. Needless to say, I will not be back. I had hoped for better things from the restaurant but the hostess was resigned to the two extremely loud groups, which made our dinner pretty miserable. The poor waiter was overworked and the hostess was mean. Will definitely be recommending my friends avoid this place. "

  • "Nice pub feel. Excellent service and a good selection of a variety of dinner types from burger to flatbread pizza and roasted salmon. Those who ordered the salmon, sweet potato puree and spinach were very pleased with simple but very tasty meal. The noise level is pretty high, though, so it was hard to hear people across the table. (They need more sound absorbers in a room with brick walls) And in cold weather the draft when the door opens is rough for the tables nearby. The beer selection was kind of odd, as they were featuring Anheuser Busch selections on tap. . .not sure what is so special about those. They still had a good selection of brews. We were well cared for, enjoyed our food, and had a great time!"

  • "I came here with my family after completeing the 118th Boston Marathon. We arrived early for our reservation but were promply seated and waited on. The beer list and appetizers were great. My burger was a little undercooked (ordered medium but got medium rare) but that was not a problem as I was starving. I did not feel the need to send it back as it was still warm all the way through. Overall really good experience and will definitely be back to sit on the patio! "

  • "We happened upon the Granary in our search for a brunch spot, and the Granary was a most pleasant surprise. From the decor/ambience - ol' tavern feel, yet modern, to the great service (although we would have liked an offer to top off our coffees), and the food was just right - for a brunch menu, it had everything you would expect (waffles, eggs benny, etc.), plus a few twists on the old classics, and everything tasted good and fresh. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Great food, great atmosphere in a great location. Located feet from the Quincy Markets, Granary Tavern was a great place to settle down for a meal. The brick walls and old wood beams create a fantastic atmosphere. The services was good and the diversity of the menu fit all appetites."

  • "Great Easter brunch! We really enjoyed eating here, the ambience was great. The service was slow and lackluster, but it could've just been our server. The food was excellent and enjoyable. The prices are just right. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Our waitress was fantastic but the food didn't match the service. We got the mussels for an appetizer and while they weren't terrible, I just simply wouldn't order them again. Ordered the steak frites (medium rare - rare). It was cooked properly but not a ton of flavor. I always say if you desire to put salt/pepper/sauce on your steak then it can't be that great. My girlfriend got the scallops and those were the best part of the meal. We paid $92 (not including tip) for 2 glasses of white wine, 2 beers, steak frites, scallops, mussels appetizer. "

  • "We had a group of 7 which I realize can sometimes be cumbersome but we really enjoyed our dining experience. The food was fantastic and same for the drinks! The kitchen was extremely gracious as they prepared their menu items gluten free for me and they tasted wonderful! Love the ambiance and all the brick work in the restaurant. The Manager greeted us at the door which was a nice start, however our waitress does not seem happy with her job and continuously made mistakes, without apology and had zero personality. Either she was having a bad day or is in the wrong career!"

  • "I was looking for a restaurant to accommodate myself and five friends on a Friday night, preferably one with a wide range of menu options and reasonable prices. Granary Tavern turned out to be the perfect fit! The staff was helpful and accommodating, the food was fresh and delicious (and locally sourced!), and the restaurant had a trendy industrial feel. Of course it also has a great location by the harbor, so I'd love to go and eat on the patio in the summer. Finally, for dessert fans, it has some of the best crème brûlée I've ever had!"

  • "Great location near the waterfront, just a short stroll from the old Custom House in Boston. Brick and wide wooden beams give it an old-time ambiance. We enjoyed the background music streaming from Pandora radio, tending toward the blues. The food menu is not extensive but has enough choices to please almost anyone. The drink menu has a lot of good choices of beer on tap. I enjoyed the steak frites entree very much. The French fries were the best I have had in a long time. My dining partner had a swordfish entree which was flavorful. We shared a delicious creme brulee. We found our waiter very attentive and congenial. We would definitely go back the next time we are in that part of Boston."

  • "Good place for a Friday lunch. We got a table overlooking the Greenway - Nice sunny day, Food is good but way too much dressing on the beet salad and it is too vinegary. A lighter, sweeter dressing would be perfect."

  • "As I sat at Granary on a very vibrant Monday night (a wait for a table at 8 p.m. It was packed0 I wondered why I don't eat there more often. The food was fantastic.! I usually just have drinks and apps and Monday was no exception. The chips with garlic and dip are the best homemade chips around. We always order the margarita flatbread and it is always the freshest. Tasted like the dough was made minutes before. At the waitress suggestion we tried something new to us which was the chicken fried chicken. I'm not a fan of chicken tenders but these were juicy thick pieces of the best tasting chicken ever. Nice sweet sauce with a little bit of a kick to it. All around wonderful and I look forward to going back again."
