Great lunchOur party of 6 were celebrating a retirement. Our waiter was attentive and offered a complimentary dessert for our friend who is retiring. The burgers and home made chips were the best I have had in a long time. From burgers to salads, everyone was very happy. Try the warm brownie with ice cream... Definitely worth the calories.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAppetizers the highlight!Enjoyed Sunday evening outdoor dining. Appetizers (calamari, potstickers' and mussels) and desserts the highlight. The strip steaks and prime rib was slightly tough.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the outside tableWe loved the outside table for 6--quiet, pretty--easy to converse with each other. The service was timely and the food was delicious. We will return!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNice lunch spotNot bad place for lunch. The prices are a bit much though. But occasionally the food is worth it. I love the torilla soup. Service is always great and efficient and I appriciate that too.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSo you want a salad?My salad, chicken cobb, was excellent. My guest, however, ordered the Ahi tuna salad. I took one look at it and wish I ordered it as I love Ahi tuna and it looked tremendous. Next time.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the food and great service!We joined friends there for lunch on Memorial Day. It was very nice and we all had delicious entrees.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a business lunchGreat Northern Tavern is a favorite among people at my company.

Food was good. Noise was a bit too much to make conversation as pleasant as it could have been. It was crowded and a Friday night.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Northern is one of thoseGreat Northern is one of those good places you can count on – whether for a quick lunch, a biz/working lunch, after-work cocktails & food, or a relaxing munch with friends, it's good food. Thankfully not outre, hipster, pretentious, just good, creative, fresh, tasty food.
If you have adietary restriction they make ever effort to accommodate you and get you what you'd like - no drama, just "we can do that". They are NOT an overly-commercialized presence, and in a sea of chain/franchise sameness pretending to be a "family restaurants" hey stand out - something reliable and yummy.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI can always count on GreatI can always count on Great Northern to provide me with a consistent experience. The food is always great here.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good service. FoodReally good service. Food was delicious. Have been there several times before. We just had a wonderful night.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThey were not flexible onThey were not flexible on seating. we requested a booth; but were told that the inky booth opes was reserved... however; no one sat in it the entire time we were there. The food and service were way better than expected. But Don't order dessert. It looked and tasted like it came from the grocery store frozen section. It was too loud to talk, so don't choose this place if you want a quiet, romantic date.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAllways great.We are never disappointed with Great Northern. Omar was our server and did a great job--he even kept us updated on the NCAA basketball score. I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were the best I have ever had--a little lumpy with skins. I love that the tables aren't packed together which makes it less noisy and easier to talk in a larger group.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster brunch with an 8 monthEaster brunch with an 8 month old-server was very helpful and we had a very nice time. We had been there for other meals and enjoyed it then as well.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster brunch here has becomeEaster brunch here has become a family tradition. The kids are happy they can find something they like to eat and the adults love the variety of delicious choices to be found.

Lots of nice beers on tap. Solid food.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMComfort food ftwVisited for restaurant week, and found the whole experience excellent. Sometimes restaurants feel a little overwhelmed during restaurant week and are lacking, but Great Northern did a great job keeping up and delivering the food hot and well-prepared, with great service. Super comfort food, great wait staff, and a nice draft beer list.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wood-fired grill reallyThe wood-fired grill really adds a wonderful smokiness to Great Northern's dishes. The food and service are always on point!1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe smell alone will pullThe smell alone will pull you in - I love that wood-fired grill smell which permiates into the parking lot as you get out of your car! I had the salmon and, as promised, was done exactly as I'd ordered; it was excellent. To me there is nothing worse than overcooked salmon or seafood of any kind and I was not disappointed - it was wonderful. My only complaint would be the "grilled" asparagus. They were bland (more likely steamed than grilled). I make my own grilled asapargus at home and I wish I could give them my simple recipe, but obviously there is no chance of that. All in all, it was very good and I would not hesitate to go back.12/20/2012 12:00:00 AM
