A word from The Ginger Man
The Ginger Man opened in Greenwich in August of 2002 and instantly became one of the area’s most popular restaurants. Known for its warm and inviting atmosphere, the Ginger Man is a favorite among Greenwich locals and neighboring communities. Whether you are looking for a quick burger (maybe the best burger anywhere!), sandwich, or salad with friends or an intimate dinner at a table by the fireplace, The Ginger Man offers you a unique dining experience.

The Ginger Man’s menu accommodates people of all ages with everything from grilled cheese to entrée-sized salads and two to three fish selections daily. The restaurant still uses a real butcher from the New York City marketplace to hand pick its steaks and blend that special mix for its famous burgers.

The Ginger Man features 23 taps, 80+ bottles and a well chosen wine list from small and large Vineyards around the world. The Ginger Man’s burgers and beers were voted “best burger” and “best beer selection.”

    It was an amazing dinner. My burger was delicious and even though they didn't have mussels for diavlo , the excellent wait staff and chef made them anyway. The shirmp risotto was horrible however, couldn't even eat it. That won't stop me from coming back though. If you're thinking of trying, it do it.

    We were with a group of 6 people. The waiter was fabulous and very accomondating. The food was also very good. The mixed drinks from the bar were terrbile. I had to send mine back twice. They need a new Saturday night bartender who knows how to make drinks. Other than that everything was good.

    Ginger Man is our go-to spot for a simple but good meal and a beer. Their selection of beer is extensive and one of the few places around to get our favorite Belgian beers. It can be very lively on the weekends, but for a rainy Monday night the atmosphere was cozy and pub like.

    Having had our first date at The Ginger Man, which has turned into the most wonderful marriage, this pub has a very special place in our hearts. However, the last few times we visited, on our wedding and first date anniversaries, the noise level has been a major distraction, so much so, that we would seriously consider not returning. We love this local venue but not being able to hear each other from across the table is a major turnoff!!! We hope this honest review causes a positive change in the overall ambiance of this special place, we'd hate to say goodbye toThe Ginger Man!!

    This is a great meeting point between NYC and my parents' place so I love coming in to meet them here. I've been for Mother's Day, Valentine's Day and a few dinners in between. Fall and winter are really lovely if you can sit near the fireplace. The food is pretty straightforward and very good (they make a great cheese board). Service is always friendly, and the craft beer list is consistent.

    The food was OK, but I found the service painfully slow for what we ordered (pancakes, a cobb salad and a pulled pork sandwich). It took a good 30 minutes for the food to arrive. My local diner would have served food just as good and in half the time (or less).

    It was way too dark. Had to pull out my cell phone to read the menu and check. But besides that, the food was very good. and the desert & beer were excellent. I was about a half hr late but I was still taken care of right away, which was greatly appreciated.. This is a great place to go during Spring and Summer. Will go back and hopefully the lighting will have improved by then.

    Great food, wood burning fireplace in the back was a nice touch. Food was great and come out hot and fresh. Seating was a little close to the bar, couldn't help but be interrupted some times by bar patrons singing and belting out classic tunes at 6pm on a Sunday. Aside from that it was great. Just wish the dining area was a little more removed from the bar.

    We had my husband's 50th surprise b-day party there upstairs a few years ago. They did a terrific job--maybe b/c the owner, Christian, and my husband share the same birthday? haha Even though he opened another restaurant in Norwalk, and presumably divides his time, he has continued to impress and keep a very high quality standard in Gingerman-Greenwich. I had octopus salad and black bean soup; the other 5 had various meat dishes including short ribs, & salmon-- all prepared with fresh vegetables in a warm atmosphere by the fire. Very reasonable price for the high quality service, ambiance and food. Love it! ~Pinky Markey oh, note: they charge 18% tip for parties of 6 or more, they said; too bad, we would have given 20%
