    Courteous, attentive-enough-without-intruding. COVID makes for quiet, spread-out dining. Different menu options were all exceptionally well-prepared, cooked nicely to order. They were closing for 2 wks of repair 12/31, so some menu selections were limited availability, but everything was delicious and attractive.

    Outstanding as always! Our group of classic car driver's comes out from Keswick Virginia to go to the Griffin Tavern, never disappoints! Best ever and friendly staff, I recommend a draft of Guinness and the Shepards pie!

    We have been fans of Griffin Tavern for a long time. Their response to the Covid has been very good. The beer selection on draft is alway good and the kitchen provides delicious food. We live close by but it is worth a ride.

    A lovely brunch menu: two of us ordered "breakfast" and one "lunch", and all were delicious and nicely presented. Portions were more generous than competing "artsy" restaurants, and a fair value for the price. Service attentive but not crowding. Love the ambience.

    We ate in the Garden room. It has only two tables, there were five people. The service was very good as was the food. We especially liked the Carrot cake. We are frequent visitors to Griffin, we have been coming here since 2002. We have no intention of leaving now. If you've never been here you are missing out!!

    Been coming here for years. Consistently good and creative food in a relaxed environment. Downside is that the prices have been climbing and the portions have been getting smaller. With comparable restaurants in the general region that offer the same level of menu options, quality and service at more reasonable prices I am often choosing them over Griffin and come less often.

    Great ambience, and creative accommodation of table spacing for COVID compliance. Very friendly staff; busier than usual but still responsive. Food is well prepared and very stylishly presented. Personally, I found a couple of things "overly creative cuisine", but I tend to be a meat'n'taters guy. Still, an artful chef at work!

    Party of four enjoyed great service and fresh, tasty food for a late lunch on July 4. Appetizers were fried oysters and wings. Entrees included the fried green tomato BLT (highly recommended), a burger, and crabcake sandwiches. I had not been there in quite some time. It won't be that long before the next visit.

    We enjoyed our meal at Griffen Tavern very much. This was our first experience eating out at a restaurant with table service since the COVID shutdown and we couldn't have been happier. The Tavern did a great job. We were seated in a room with just one other table. The waitstaff all wore masks. Well done.
