I have been many times. The food is consistently excellent. The menu has a few different options added each time I have gone and I always sample them to see what is new. I have never been disappointed! The staff and management are wonderful. The last time I was there was St. Patrick's Day. There was live music, it was crowded and festive and the corned beef and cabbage amazing. I would and do highly recommend Granary Tavern for a great meal and a fun night out!
The cauliflower is a must! The service was great.
Great kitchen for brunch. The bloody Mary had too much horseradish, though. Nice interior, but lots of families with kids being so close to the aquarium.
Wasn't that busy didn't really need the reservation. We were seated but don't think the server was told so it was 20 minutes before we were asked what we wanted to drink and order. The ciabatta bread was to hard to bite through the sandwich we ordered. The brownie was delicious.
Great brunch spot downtown. Warm, welcoming environment. Trendy but still good for families. Fabulous service!
Typical bar style casual restaurant. Food was good .Server was on slow side and when we ask about drinks on the drink had no idea what we were talking about.
Good service , good food
We walked into restaurant and had this overwhelming smell of fish. The hostess led us to a table in a different room so we thought we would try that room. When we got to table there were people standing all around our table speaking really loud. We actually walked out and went to restaurant right next door.
We went because we were staying at the Hilton a block or two away. We are a family of 5 with a middle schooler and two high school kids. We visited on a Friday during lent so we were limited.
The food is really fantastic. We loved two apps: potato chips & cauliflower. Both yum! I loved the mushroom flatbread but the fam loved the margarita. The thai salad had too much dressing but it was ok.
We all agreed that if we visit Boston again we will be back.
Good food in a lively atmosphere
We stopped in with two kids after an afternoon at the aquarium. The staff took good care of us and made us feel comfortable. The kids enjoyed the food (corndogs and fresh fruit) and we enjoyed our lunch specials. All in all, an easy experience and one that we would recommend to others.
The food was great and our server attentive. However, we requested a "quiet or corner table" and that didn't happen. We were seated right by the entrance, it was a freezing cold day, and one of our party was just getting over being sick. I even said to the hostess upon arrival, this doesn't look to be very quiet - and she just gave me a "what do you want me to do" look and said "we're very busy today". Two different parties with children were seated beside us, the second table had very "active" children. It was difficult for the five of us to converse, between the children and the cold.
My husband and I were attending an dance event at the long wharf and needed something in walking distance. We both ordered the scallops. It was excellent, fresh and delish! Service was very good too. Highly recommend!
Excellent food, great ambiance, and prices very reasonable! Dessert was delicious!
Granary Tavern has a great american styled menu with a nice drink selection. Their Cauliflower appetizer (with sweet and spicy chili sauce) is delicious. The menu has great variety with classic entrees, salads, flatbreads, and more.
This is a wonderful casual dining establishment that works great for families and kids. My daughter had her wedding rehearsal dinner here and the menu options were wonderful for the oldest to the youngest flower girl. We have also used it as a meeting place for informal family gatherings. The atmosphere is inviting and the food is really good. We will definitely come back the next time we are in Boston.
Very upbeat place and great for get togethers!
Great food and atmosphere. Brussels sprouts with bacon are aaaahmazing!
Amazing! Delicious food, great service, and for downtown Boston, reasonable prices! An appetizer, two meals and a dessert came in under 50 bucks. Great for date night! Try the truffle fries!
Thai salad with Tuna was terrible. My clients left the whole salad untouched. Bang bang cauliflower was great.
It was solid. No complaints
Service was excellent even though it was quite busy.
I dont know whats happened to Granary but its gone down hill significantly in the past year. In one of my last visits we had to send four beers back as they tasted like bleach. This time, the service was very slow - 45 mins to get food at lunch is ridiculous. The veggie burger was uncooked, the salad looked like it was from last week. The rest of the food was just bland. Even our group's favorite - bang bang cauliflower wasn't that good. Even one of the staff said - don't come back here, go to the place on the other side. Guess, we'll just have to cross this one off our options list. Too bad...
Had Thai salad. Very crunchy and dry. It was like eating potato chips on top of lettuce.
Waitress seemed overwhelmed and never had appetizers come out. But all other experiences here have been great
Loved this place! We will definitely return. Food was delicious, ambiance was fantastic. Rustic, home-y and elegant. Loved that they had a kids menu and chocolate milk for my son! Service was impressive. The waitress had the cooks split our meals since my mom and I were sharing. Fabulous little gem across from the aquarium.
Great brunch spot. The waffles with the honey butter were out of this world!
We had a great time, but I was a little disappointed that we were seated at a table right near an exterior door that people were going in and out of all night. It made it quite cold at our table! A couple of my friends even put their coats back on. The food and service was great though! Definitely enjoyed my birthday dinner with friends!
The steak Flatbread was definitely meaty; the sauce could use more horseradish flavor.
I was treating a friend for her birthday and we were served with a complementary appetizer. Regrettable the birthday gal couldn't eat it so the waitress asked what she could eat and after completing our entrees, we were brought a fabulous dessert, totally unexpected, very much appreciated, which we both devoured. Great service and good very good.
Went to Granary to celebrate my 60th Birthday with family. Really liked it. Casual but classy interior. Active but not too noisy. Food was great. Prices very reasonable. Try it.
hostess very accommodating as I had to change the reservation time due to public transportation. Great salads - good service.
Good solid choice. We stopped for brunch and were pleased with a broad variety of options. We opted for the chicken and waffles and the Asian salad with chicken. The food was delicious as was expected. I would return for brunch or dinner.
Service was excellent- my wife and I happened to be celebrating our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel special.
The food was very good and the service was excellent.
Food was good and the beer selection was midly wide. The chiken and waffles comes with bone in chicken but it is very good. We would come back.
The dining experience began with not one, but two inhospitable receptionists/hostesses. However, the server was great. He was unobtrusive, efficient, personable and accommodating. Then another backslide as random servers brought plates of food to the table and had no idea who it should be served to and waved the plates around shouting "cobb salad?" or "fish and chips?" with no apparent concern that they actually should have a clue as to which dish goes to which diner, typical, but still unpleasant. Some of the dishes were terrific, including the flatbreads and the infamous chicken and waffles, but others were meh. The dining room has nice décor, but the size of the room and the table layout lead to pretty constant foot traffic and a generally unrelaxing atmosphere. Additionally, the road noise from the open windows is extremely obtrusive and diners have to pause conversation, repeat or wait for traffic to pass. On the upside, the location is convenient to the Boston Financial District and the prices are not accordingly exorbitant.
Service was slow and it was hot outside. Not all seats had the protective awning.
Slow service. Loud outside.
