Busy with the pre-St. Patrick's
Busy with the pre-St. Patrick's Day" revelers, but that aside, it was decent food and fun. Mixed crowd-- young and older which was nice. Menu was somewhat limited, but we had steak frites and a Caesar salad, along with three appetizers which were ok. Fun place to go if you're not expecting gourmet. Bar food. I'd go back for a couple of beers and a burger perhaps?

Good pub food in a nice neighbourho
Good pub food in a nice neighbourhood. Service is adequate and rinks are delicious.
Very noisy and loud so go there if you want to eat a good meal and have a couple of drinks with friends.

Shared the chicken and waffles
Shared the chicken and waffles and the oyster po-boy and both were excellent. Great beer selection as well. Old mill-style accents give the building the historic feel it should have but is updated for functionality. You get the bar atmosphere you are looking for with far better food.

Cool building with a great
Cool building with a great menu, good beer list and tasty food. Portions were large. Service was not rushed. Since this place is in Faneuil Hall I expected it to be packed at 5:30 on a Friday, but it wasn't too bad, although it did start to fill up.

I needed to find a restaurant
I needed to find a restaurant to take my best friend to for her birthday with a group of her closest friends and when I was searching online I found Granery Tavern and thought I would give it a try because it seemed reasonably priced, fun, and the menu looked appetizing. I was thoroughly impressed with this place. The service was great, the drinks we made well, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was fun, and we all had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, as I already have been over the past two days since I had dinner there!! I'll definitely be back and so won't all the people I went with!

Excellent lunch.A bit concerned to go to this spot on Mothers Day(Financial District) but worth the trip. Right across street from water ront and NE Aquarium. Food was excellent.

I was looking for a restaurant
I was looking for a restaurant for Mother's Day in Boston somewhere the other side of chic, cookie-cutter and dive, and came across the Granary Tavern. Our family of five was seated downstairs in very attractive room with some nice rustic touches. The menu for brunch was very tantalizing but the food delivered was lacking in some zip - maybe a little more seasoning or more spice. With just these minor criticisms, though, brunch overall was excellent. The Bloody Mary's were great. If you're looking for a place with great atmosphere, reasonably priced, and solid food selection I would highly recommend the Granary Tavern on Milk Street.

Perfect Spot for Mother's Day
This is an attractive little restaurant tucked into a building with walls of windows on two sides. Staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Brunch was served with casually elegant presentation in a timely fashion by a waiter who was present when needed but not overbearing. Although I would not consider the food to be gourmet it was very pleasant to the palate. Quantity was more than adequate and price exceptionally reasonable. This is a restaurant I would definitely recommend for any brunch including one on a special occasion. The only negative aspect is a lack of coat room or coat rack. I ended up sitting on my coat since our chairs were sturdy high stools without backs. I look forward to returning to sample the dinner menu sometime.

Great spot right outside of Faneuil
I had a party of 11 girls for a pre-bachelorette night on the town dinner. The space they gave us was very accomodating and a bit secluded which was nice. Although the menu wasn't huge, they had such an array of different choices, that there was something for everyone. The staff were wonderful and we had a great time and ate some really yummy food, I will definitely recommend that my friends / co-workers check this place out. I'll be back myself I'm sure of it.

Rustic feel just downtown
Great decor, outdoor seating, and good food. The beer selection was surprising limited but had great choices.

Good Burgers n Fries
Wanted a good burger... and they didn't let us down. Cooked just right, but the preparation was simple, and could have had a bit more flavor, but I like my burgers to explode with flavor more than most. The broccoli n cheese soup was also some of the best I have had. Good place for good food, which will satisfy most everyone.

Overall good experience
Granary Tavern was a good place to go for lunch and a drink. The place is pretty cool inside - has a nice ambiance and location.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
This young, two level spot serves awesome gastropub fair an a great price. The building dates back to the 1800's and was used to store and sell grains (as its name may suggest). The Hanger Steak is my favorite and has been written up in various articles for its tastiness. The Lobster Roll and Pork Loin follow closely behind. The service is either really great or status quo... however it is NEVER sub par. This is one of the places to be in Boston if it's nice weather outside and you want a little people watching while you devour your dinner.

Hosting College Kids
We were hosting a granddaughter and her boyfriend (both college students in Virginia) who were visiting Boston for a special treat...including a Yankees/Red Sox game the previous evening. This was as good a choice as it gets for a "multi-generational" spot that suited the occasion.
They loved it; so did we. Proximity to the waterfront and public transportation for us coming from the burbs were added extras.

Good Chow. More Bar-Like than Rest
This is a large place. The food is very good and a good choice if work nearby or are you're staying in one of the local hotels in the area. There is a very large bar crowd here and very noisy. Food better than what you'd expect for a place catering to this type of crowd. Young, pleasant, staff that's eager to please. Nice ambiance and a few different rooms. A few touches would add to the experience... lose the paper napkins, balance the tables, train busboys not to clear empty glasses by putting their fingers in the glasses. Pizzas are very good. Fine for kids.

Great atmosphere and location. All of our entrees were excellent, but the chicken and waffles was the star of the show...outstanding!

The service and food were
The service and food were good. The only problem we had is that we sat in the patio at the beginning but it was too loud, so when we decided to move inside the waitress gave us an attitude, at that point we were glad we had moved inside as a waitress of that type is never good.
The service inside was much better and acomodating.

My husband had a class in Boston and I wanted to meet him for dinner. This restaurant was everything we could have wanted on a warm summer's evening - great food, lively atmosphere, available outdoor tables, window walls that opened for people watching. We sat along the window wall and got to hear and see the city meander past.
The waiter was friendly as well as prompt. I could not have asked for a better time - or meal - or drinks.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great casual yet classy spot with good food and drink. Definitely recommend it!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was only my second time
This was only my second time at granery and I am excited to add it to my regular rotation of favorite spots in Boston. Happy hours can e tough if you are looking for somewhere to sit down and enjoy dinner and drinks with a couple of friends - granery is perfect!

Not easy to find a good place
Not easy to find a good place that you feel comfortable bringing kids to. Granary Tavern is in a great location with a wonderful open atmosphere that suits families and large parties.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great, but most of all the service - I was here for a bachelorette party of 10 people, and our server was amazing (yay Michael!).
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great restaurant
This is a great restaurant for a causal dinning experience. The food is very good, service very good, and the restaurant has a cool Boston feel to it. I love going there for a good meal and experience.

Al Fresco Dining in Boston
My three friends and I enjoyed al fresco dining at the Granary Tavern on a beautiful afternoon. We dined outside. Po Boy (friend oysters) on a grilled hot dog roll; flatbread pizza; turkey club--everything was fresh and delicious. The service was great as well. Would definitely return.

Excellent lunch specials
I recently started working in the area and knew that I had to check out Granary Tavern based on my co-workers recommendations, and I was not disappointed. A great selection of draft beers and craft cocktails and well-prepared comfort food will make this a regular lunch spot for me. The Thursday lunch special, a meatloaf patty melt, was mind-blowing, though the only thing I wanted to do afterwards was curl up under my desk and nap for the rest of the day. Maybe they should move this to the Friday special when I feel like taking half a day.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
good for lunch!
Had lunch there on a work day - and was impressed that I was in and out of there in an hour without feeling rushed at all. There were 2 of us, we had pulled pork flatbread pizza and chicken salad sandwich -- both were very good.

First time. Great food & beer
First time. Great food & beer selection and great service!

GREAT new menu!
They still have most of the original faves, but I like the new menu -- especially their Salmon BLAT sandwich.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great! Service was even better! And the Kentucky bourbon ale was one of the best beers I have ever had!!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for lunch - with great prices
We had a great time for lunch - sitting outside enjoying the day and the view. The menu isn't huge, but it had many things I was interested in. They have great prices for lunch, and the presentation of food was very nice. I would definitely go back again

The Hip Tavern
Great for a night out with friends. Food and service was excellent. A different place to go to in Boston! Can't wait to go back.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I always have a good experience at Granary Tavern whether it's the fish tacos special for lunch on Fridays, or the yummy flat breads for dinner. The food is delicious, and they have a great wine and beer selection. I would absolutely recommend going there for lunch or dinner. A great gem in the Financial District among all the touristy restaurants.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
solid neighborhood dining
Went to grab a quick bite before ballgame. All in all a good experience. Good beer list, good appetizers, and something for everyone. Service wasn't particularly professional, but friendly and enthusiastic. Prices were fair.
10/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
Tasty chicken n waffles
The chicken & waffles were rich (obviously) but delicious. The ambiance inside is lovely, and they have a somewhat decent beer list.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for lunch. I have not had dinner there but would be willing ton try it.
This is my go to place for meeting friends for lunch.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was hesitant when my guests suggested Granary Tavern based off an Internet review, but I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the food was great. The menu was a little out of my comfort zone and I was still very happy with my meal. We had great service and I would return!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Service
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our visit to Granary this past Saturday. The service was excellent and the food was amazing.
Go for the bourbon beer....it's always a great pour.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed it, slightly pricey
Great spot, burger was $16, but hey, it's in the heart of downtown.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noisy at nite, great food
I love this restaurant--you can have bar food (sandwiches, fantastic homemade potato chips and picles) at a reasonable price without paying for a full dinner, and I always find a great beer on tap. I like it better for lunch/brunch; the night I went with a friend for dinner (7-ish on a Friday night) it was so loud we could barely hear each other. Servuce ranges from the exemplary to merely adequate, but I never go when I'm in a hurry so it doesn't bother me. Favorites: the veggie confit sandwich, the lobster roll, the bourbon ale.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, relaxing atmosphere
Had an early dinner with some colleagues. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. Food was decent. The BBQ Pork Nachos were really good as were the deviled eggs, which we all shared. Comfort food served well. Not a gourmet meal, but a pleasant all around nice pubby meal.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, Fun Place
I really enjoy going to Granary - the food is great and the atmosphere is awesome. It is really open so it can get noisy - so be prepared! I have had nothing but great experiences there.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Easily accommodated change in plans
We had a reservation for 4:30 on a Wednesday for a party of 4. Our event let out two hours early and Granary Tavern easily accommodated us at 3. The waitress was helpful when asked but otherwise a little cold. The place was pretty dead between the lunch and dinner. The menu was a little short but the steak frites and chicken and waffles were terrific.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fifth visit and enjoyed it as much as all the others. Consistently good. Unique menu. Love the bbq nachos and margarita flatbread but everything else we have tried has been good too. Good services and prices too!
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot on a cold night
My wife and I were in town for an event and hadn't picked a place to eat. Found Granary was right next door and they had reservations open. The craft beer selection on rotation that night was great and went perfect with the salmon entree. Service and ambience were great too on this brief little date without the kids. One con, but not deal breaker: we asked for munchies as we waited for our entrees and got some nicely seasoned salty-sweet popcorn - it was good but worth $4? Not really. Guess I'm partial to the Halfway Cafe that has popcorn for free. Overall, great place and good food. I'd go back.
12/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
first time at here and it was great. made reservations to be safe but was no need. Not very packed which was surprising as the food was great! It's a bit outside the tourist spot of so could be the reason why not a lot of people went. The server was prompt and attentive and the food came out quick!
