Service was good. Husband’s rib eye was overcooked.

Service and food were Excellent, I would return for the food alone. The beer menu could have been more extensive then what it was, but that is an easy fix.

We booked specifically for my husband’s birthday brunch. We double checked online and with social media that they would have a Sunday brunch, which is the only reason we chose grand tavern. After we had arrived and were seated we asked about brunch which is when they informed us that they had cancelled brunch that day. No signs, no warnings, nothing. Birthday ruined. We ended up just leaving and finding another place down the road to enjoy a special birthday brunch.

They said they never got the open table reservation. Waited around 40 minutes as other people walked in and were seated yet we were told to wait for a certain table

Made a late reservation but they seated us quickly. Food was good. It took a little longer to get the food after ordering but we have noticed that at many restaurants. Pleasant seating and decor. A bit loud but not so that you couldn’t hear. Menu was broad and had something fir everyone. Average prices as similar restaurants.

I ordered chicken nachos.
Very unimpressed. They were barely warm. Chicken was not hot either.
Service was okay. Not racing to go back any time soon.

This was the 3rd place I tried to take my mom for dinner. Our fist stop was 2 other places that said they were at capacity. So I made a reservation for grand tavern thinking everything would be fine.
We made it to the reservation on time only to be told we can’t have food, only drinks.
The Manager couldn’t even come say sorry. We will never come to grand tavern again.
All we wanted was 2 entrees, we were so hungry. My mom was disappointed
So I took her across the hall at Bar Louie and everyone there was super nice and no problem getting my mom a nice dinner.

Limited and expensive menu (for the quality). Party of 8 was first placed at 2 small 4 tops put together that could not even accommodate 6. Moved to slightly larger table - service was slow and food was average at best. Won't be going back, but had to try it out.

Extremely overrated on OpenTable, the service was below average, the prime rib special was anything but special and the beer list was sparse.

One waitress came up to us with dirty dishes in hand and asked what we wanted to drink after another had already taken our order.

And why put that the meal comes with “any style potatoes” then charge $2 for sweet potato fries? They’re still ANY potato!!

First and last visit! Disappointing!!

The food was really good. However our server seemed like she didn't even want to be there. No personality at all. We were seated by the kitchen and the entire time we kept hearing servers shout CORNER. Very annoying after the first few minutes. Also, I had a ginger ale that must have been from the bottom of the keg it had no flavor at all. The server did remove it from the bill which was nice.

I have been to the Grand Tavern often since you’ve opened, lunch and dinner. Everything is great but I continue to come back because of the treatment I get from Sarah, the manager. She is wonderful. I can’t say enough about her. I’m always referring friends.

Food and service were great. Made reservation on-line. Our table was not ready and there was no reservation recorded. I will call or go in person for my next get-together in November.

Scammers? A "appetizer" size loaded tot (9.50$) is the same size as a "side" loaded tot for a burger (2$)
Waitress seemed very busy but very nice. App came with main meal which seemed like a kitchen organization problem.
The kicker is that it seemed like only a 1/2 full seating that night so the tardiness and business was unusual.

When we arrive right on schedule, the hostess said "We don't take reservations". When I showed her my confirmation email from Open Table, she still insisted that they didn't accept reservations. But since the place was maybe 1/4 full at 7:00pm Saturday evening, she "graciously" offered us a table. After being seated, I asked to speak to the manager, and within a fee minutes the manager arrived and confirmed they do, in fact, accept Ooen Table reservations. I don't know if they credited the visit to my OT account or not.
After the drama ended, the food was just OK bar grub. Nothing great, nothing horrible.

Made a reservation and requested a booth. Didn't even get asked and was seated at a table. Server was slow at times. 2 of the 4 of us ordered the prime rib special. They wanted to charge us extra for a side aus jus. Prime rib was mediocre and should've come with a side of aus jus for free. Most likely will not return. Only came to try the prime rib.

The Mothers day brunch was overpriced. The food was cold to lukewarm in chafing dishes. Omelettes were the best on breakfast portion of menu. Replenishment of food & dishes slow. Could have had better variety of salads & desserts. Chocolate fountain was a nice touch. The roses for moms were a nice touch. Our server was good but didn't offer getting manager when we told her our complaints. I made the reservation two weeks plus in advance on open table but ended up with a high top table. Unable to accommodate low top seating for a group of 9 plus highchair so had to separate our group.
