The Granary Tavern is a place where rustic and modern elements mend seamlessly to create a casually-stylish environment. Formerly a historic grain mill, the two-floor restaurant, and gastropub is the perfect gathering venue for food, drinks and fun.

The unique menu is rich in comfort food and offers a variety of locally sourced produce, fresh seafood, and farmer’s market goods. Granary Tavern serves weekly lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

Its two bars accented with exposed brick and beams create a cozy, intimate setting for diners. The first floor includes a spacious outside patio and panoramic al fresco style windows , ideal for large groups. The downstairs reminds you of a wine cellar, with granite foundation walls, exposed beams and warm lighting that crates an intimate ambiance, perfect for quiet business lunches or after-works drinks.
*We will make every effort to seat guests with their first preference however outdoor seating can not be guaranteed*

Expensive. Food was served in an appropriate amount of time. Restaurant does NOT cater to requests of omitting butter or sauces from plates. Vegetables were swimming in butter/oil despite my request to omit that from my food. I was asked my request was due to an allergy, maybe if I had said yes, they would have listened...? Overall, the food was delicious! Just not healthy. Would recommend to every non dieting person!

This was my 3rd time eating at Granary Tavern and like all of the previous times, it did not disappoint! The food came out quickly and was absolutely delicious. The waitress was friendly and brought water over for the kids in kid cups before we even asked. They have a good kid's menu and plenty of incredible options for adults. If you're looking for a place that won't disappoint, Granary Tavern is it!

Called ahead to ask about the patio seating and they said they were open but didn’t mention a full blown construction worksite happening 10 feet away from it. Took 30 minutes for someone to take our drink order after we were sat. The food got brought out before the drinks. Didn’t have a server come back to the table to ask if we wanted another drink after sitting there with empty plates and drinks for about a half hour. Not sure if they were short staffed on servers but it was bad.

Great food! The frittata with greens was the best egg-based dish I’ve had in a long time. I would go back here just to eat it! I don’t normally clear my plate at a restaurant. Great taste and portion size.
The chicken and waffles, grits and eggs Benedict were also very good. Mimosas were also on point.

We were pressured to order and we were told we could not bring my birthday cake, despite we made sure In advance THAT IT WAS OK.
The food was probably one of the heaviest I have tried in Boston.

Hostess was very energetic and pleasant! Unfortunately, the experience went downhill from there. Our waiter was not personable at all - he didn't even introduce himself. He didn't offer us any information about the restaurant or the menu. Fine, we can figure it out. His questions were curt and he didn't follow up after the food was brought to our table, then took forever to notice that we were done eating. Overall the food wasn't bad. My son loved his burger but the lobster rangoon had no flavor of lobster at all - all cream cheese. For a $15 appetizer of 5 tiny rangoon, it was definitley not worth it. Meal was overpriced and service was horrible.

My wife's lobster rangoons were excellent. My burger was dry because it came without the fried egg, which I didn't notice at first, and I didn't really get the option to send it back because we got very little attention from our waitress. It was very busy, and the food was OK. Again my wife's food was great, and I can say that my sweet potato fries were very good too. The waitress said she would take the burger off the bill, but did not. I didn't want to wait any longer so I just paid and we left. For a place called a Gastropub, I really expect more.

My girlfriend and I ended up here on a Saturday when everything else seemed to be booked. We are glad we did- it was so delicious! Priced decent for Boston, good food, and good drinks. Ambiance was nice with music. Tables were a little too close together though in my opinion.

Food was anything but good. I felt bad complaining so many times about the brunch....

Eggs were cold, bloody Mary’s were almost undrinkable. After we mentioned this, we got mimosas instead. These were also flat and not worth the money. My avocado toast was completely soggy, and for 14 dollars it should be better.

We’ve never been there before but totally surprised by the results. The people there were extremely nice, the food was really good quality, the look of the restaurant is low-key, but the vibe is extremely nice! Totally recommend

Service was great! Food and drinks were subpar. "Blistered" shishito peppers were barely cooked (let alone blistered) and the "spicy blood orange margarita" had no flavor and was not spicy at all.
