First time we had been out to dinner since March. Felt completely comfortable at Griffin Tavern. The hostess, our waitress, the servers and the kitchen handled everything like pros. It was great!
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 experience as usual. Highly recommend.
Beer cheese soup with pretzel was great! Shrimp fantastic. Desserts delicious.
Appreciate the distancing for pandemic too. Felt totally safe.
Food was fabulous.
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!
Great food and service....reasonable pricing....very comfortable
We all enjoyed our meals. Nice menu selection. Great service.
Our server was friendly and efficient. Food was delicious and served in a reasonable amount of time. We will return.
Griffin Tavern= yum! Anything on the menu is delicious, especially the burgers, great selection of local beers, and wonderfully friendly staff. It’s always been our go to lunch or brunch stop when heading to Shenandoah.
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.
Felt good to sit in the porch and have a good meal! Seafood paperadelle was delish! Caramel sea salt cheesecake was to die for!!!
We are in the porch and had excellent service. The food was good but changed from previously. The grilled salmon on Mediterranean salad was quite different but good. We missed rolls, although assume they are not pandemic friendly.
Great service, great food...would go again anytime!
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.
Good food, nice environment, super French fries, cold beer, and reasonable Pinot Grigio. Good service and recognizing social distancing.
Finally out for the first restaurant meal since the pandemic. Family was very pleased with the service as well as attention to new dining rules. Food was good and outdoor dining was a good time.
We had an awesome time. The service and foot were outstanding. We definitely plan to go back and would recommend Griffin Tavern to anyone.
Always a very nice experience. Good food, great wait staff and live music to boot!
Three people in our group ordered burgers. Two asked for medium rare and I asked for medium well. When the order came out my burger was raw. When I told the waiter I could not eat it, he wanted to argue that we asked for all of them to be medium rare. I specifically said "I will do the same except I would like mine medium well". I have never eaten a steak or a burger medium rare so I would never ask for it to be cooked that way. I'm a very easy going person so I was taken back that he wanted to dispute the problem.
Great service and reasonably priced food
I ordered French Toast, the most basic of a breakfast item. Please tell the Chef not to try to reinvent the wheel ! I am not sure which bread they used but would not hold up to syrup, turned it into a mushy mess. Bacon was friend hard and served cold. Had to ask 3 times for a glass of water. I have eaten there several times and was pleased but not this time. Thank you.
Great place for a weekend drive from Northern Virginia or elsewhere. Friendly bar ambience and quiet, well appointed dining rooms. Super pub menu. Service was helpful and attentive. Super fish snd chips and shephers's pie too.
Omelette was bland especially lacking in cheddar and a quiche that was average. Service was very good throughout the meal but waited an inordinate amount of tome to receive our bill.
It was a nice restaurant, bar experience. The service was a bit slow but it was a good experience.Would recommend it if you are in the area.
Generally very good. Must have been an off night with menu and service.....
Last minute reservation. Tried this restaurant because of Open Table. Overall a very good choice. Very quaint being out on the heated porch even in February.would definitely return.
Our first visit and my wife and I were impressed. Menu was interesting and food delicious. We will be back to explore more items on menu.
This was an unexpected gem of a restaurant! I have already revisited and I look forward to going back again. The food is excellent!
We had a great dinner at Griffin Tavern. There was something for everyone: my husband and I loved the stuffed rockfish, our 17 year old devoured his ribeye, and our 12 year old had a delicious burger. The beer and wine was fabulous. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely return. I can’t wait to try the desserts!
The waiter at the next table needs to learn to use his "indoor voice." And the party there was very boisterous. It made it difficult to converse, but the place was full so no place to move to.
Wonderful meal in a quiet setting. We were glad that we could enjoy the British pub fare and have a nice conversation while doing so.
Sunday brunch for my mother’s birthday. The food and drinks were amazing! I personally recommend the Eggs Benedict with crab meat and the spicy Bloody Mary’s but everyone in our group was happy with choices as well. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. Look forward to our next visit.
Went to celebrate anniversary. We were given the royal treatment.
We really enjoyed the live entertainment. Ryan Jewel. The hamburger was scrumptious. We would definitely go back again.
First time there and everything was Excellent!!!! Our waitress was excellent also. I had Butternut Ravioli and was superb!! Husband had pork chops and was delish also!!
