Poor service and restaurant was out of many items so was left with few choices for dinner. $91 for a cheeseburger and salmon with a crappy salad.

Got there for our valentines dinner reservations and our high top table wasn’t ready. Then we got sat in a booth next to the entrance where it was freezing and they had a space heater sitting there. We asked to be moved which they did when a seat was available. When we ordered our food they had ran out of some of the items on the menu we wanted. My girl ordered the Steak well done and it came out medium and pink so she cut around it and left half of it because it was too pink on the inside. My food was good though haha.

Food took forever to come out (over an hour), everyone around us was getting their food, the waitress (with an attitude) said it was because one of the meals we ordered was a 5 oz filet well done and it had to be butterflied (it doesn’t take an hour to cook a well done 5oz filet). When we finally got our meals the food was barely warm and the well done filet was not properly prepared , not even close to being done more like medium/ medium rare. Sent it back and did not get anything else. Very disappointed with our dining experience here.

We did the couple dinner, it was a good deal for what came with it. $125 for couple. BUT the food could definitely be better. Spinach dip had zero flavor, lobster tail was rubbery and tough and our waitress was scarce and could not tell us anything about the items provided in the deal (we asked what “rooted vegetables” they were using in their side and her answer was rooted vegetables are anything that grow in the ground. Yes, I know that but I’m asking which rooted vegetables are being used since it doesn’t specify but she did not know). Gratuity was also included on our bill automatically so even though we only saw our waitress 3 times in 2.5 hours and she was no help we still had to leave her a $30 tip that they included on our bill.

It was over an hour between when salads and entrees were served. Both entrees were incorrect, but ate them becauae we had been waiting so long. Halibut was overcooked. Do not recommend.

I ordered a gin & tonic and it tasted like straight gin with sparkling water. I have drank this drink for 20 years in many places, and was by far the worst I’ve ever had.

The waitress stank of cigarette smell.

She said the Chef recommended the salmon I ordered cooked medium. It was so dry, I could hardly eat it.

Crab cake was visibly burnt and should have never been brought to the table. Lobster “tail” was only a quarter of a lobster tail, cut and placed on a wooden skewer to make it seem more ample. Bert bland. Server was ok, didn’t really know the menu.

Only issue I had was our waitress brought out the wrong salad for someone in our party. She told her that she had ordered a Cobb salad, which she brought out, but then charged us for both salads!

Grandview has great food and great service but even more important to me is how accommodating and kind the owners, management and staff were to me and my family when we needed to entertain out of town guests and family after my father’s funeral and when we needed to feed friends and family before my twins’ Confirmation. Great food, great service and great people!

Wonderful to see Grandview getting back to its "roots". The Capellini special was terrific. My wife had the Original Grandview Chicken (so happy to see it back on the menu!). How about bringing back the Original Grandview Chicken Pot pie as a special or on the menu fir the rest of the Winter? We are looking forward to being once or twice a week regulars again!

Grandview Tavern was a pleasant surprise on New Year's Eve! Decorations and staff reflected 1920s style to celebrate the decade, which added to the festive atmosphere. We had the perfect table by the fireplace. Our waitress was attentive, and did not make us feel rushed at all. There was a special menu for the evening and the food was delicious. Thanks for a fun evening!

With our early dinner reservations, the restaurant was quiet, so conversation could be heard by all. Server was good. Steak was good albeit very salty.

Overall disappointed. We visited New Year's Eve. We were surprised at the door with the information that they had a limited menu - "is that okay?". Like we had a different option at 5:30pm on New Years Eve??? They had the opportunity to inform us of this when they had called a few days in advance to confirm the reservation and inform us that there would be an extra charge to stay in the bar after 7pm due to the band/DJ. The limited menu only contained the most expensive menu items (no burgers, pizza or salads - including no side salad with the meals). There was no bread for the table. They even surprised us with a $2 split entree charge (not on the menu and not informed upon ordering). When the check arrived we were informed that a 20% mandatory tip for groups of 6 or more was included (again, we were not informed nor was it on the menu). Seemed like they were out to only maximize revenue at the diners expense! Fortunately the food and service was good - this was just a bad management decision.

First time we have been back since the recent menu change. So glad to see Grandview is getting back to its heritage. I once again enjoyed the Original Grandview Chicken! So good! Many other items I want to try. Hope they can get the raw bar back. ..and would love to see the Chicken Pot Pie back on the menu. We used to eat at Grandview a couple times a week...increasingly less as they as they screwed around with the menu and list many if the great staff. The last year or so maybe once every few months! Now I think we will enjoy this restaurant much more frequently again.

We had a group of 10 and had a reservation. Food took a little longer than expected but came out together and hot. Everyone agreed it was good, just nothing spectacular. Service was fine.

We all enjoyed our dinners and the service was very good. My only criticism is that I asked to have the crabcake appetizer as my entree and I expected I would get more than one. That is partly my fault as I should have asked but was just surprised when the entree portion only included one.
Also, the menu said it was a lump crab cake and to my taste it wasn't. I have had much better.
They had a music group come in as we were finishing our dinner and we're glad they hadn't come earlier because it was so loud it prevented conversation.

This used to be a favorite of our family and now they only have salads and burgers and pizza....very casual and very expensive. Our bill was over $70 for 2 salads and 2 kids meals at lunchtime.

We requested the dining room because the front room is sometimes cold in winter and the dining room is quieter.
Well, the dining room was a bit chilly....had coat on shoulders most of the evening. But we did get the quiet ambience we were searching for.

We were greeted by the hostess and were told the were slammed, that the only table available was in her words, “the worst and coldest table in the house. Why make a reservation!! When the music started, we could not carry on a conversation with our out of town friends, yes music was too loud, needless to say, we will not be back.

It was really dark in the restaurant. So much so that we had to use our phones to read the menu. My husbands steak was almost rare. My filet tasted like a salt lick. I ate mine (it was only 5 oz) because my husband was already sending his steak back and I didn’t want to look like a complainer. The server didn’t come back enough to check on us. We have eaten there before and were very pleased. Not sure what happened. Maybe a fluke? My husband returned his steak a second time because it tasted of lighter fluid, or some kind of fuel. He’s never turned down a steak. Since he had basically no dinner, he ordered apple cobbler. He LOVES cobbler. He said it was delicious. So, we paid $78
for Apple cobbler. Everything else wS very disappointing.

Also, they said the menu in open table was inaccurate. Said they hardly use this app so the dinner I thought I was ordering turned into a very flustered customer singing the order and ending up disappointed. Please update your menu or cancel your app listing.

I can't believe this was my first time at Grandview Tavern, but it certainly won't be the last. The food was excellent and we went on half price pizza night - what a great value! There was excellent live music and the ambiance was perfect. I'll definitely be back!

It’s an okay restaurant, better than normal bar food. The food is inconsistent, there is always someone at the table who gets a bad meal. This time it was me, my pizza was way overcooked the crust was so touch you could barely bite it off.

I would recommend it if you like loud music. The band was on the patio, & most of the food going out the door were sandwiches. Our entres were warm, but could have been hotter. In retrospect we should have stuck to sandwiches as well. Fortunately there isn't live music during the week so it's a much better eating experience. Notice I didn't say dining experience.
