    This is one of the best restaurants at the Jersey Shore. Consistently excellent and imaginative food with accommodating service. Yes, they have a limited menu, but what they have is delicious. Even the drinks are spectacular. Of course, given how popular it is, it can be quite difficult to get a reservation and there is no dedicated place for parking, but overall, getting there and eating there is well worth the effort!

    Another great evening at one of our favorite places to dine. As usual we requested bar seating and Justin , once again, too great care of us. We shared the goat cheese agnolotti as a starter which was lovely. We had the always great burger and the country fried chicken breast which was a really nice dish with collards which I don't recall ever having before. Great dining on all fronts.

    This has got to be my favorite restaurant in the area. The food is always delicious and the service is always exceptional. I took my mom here for mother's day dinner and she really enjoyed her burger. I got the Calabrian ribs as a starter and the Black Bass entree- both were amazing. Cocktails are delish and they also have a really nice wine list.

    My family and I had a reliably fine dining experience at the Grand Tavern yesterday. Although we all opted for their burgers this time, and they were rich and delicious, any menu item will will be gastronomically pleasing. The owners and staff are very friendly and the soundtrack buoys and otherwise comfortable and satisfying evening. Highly recommended.

    Generally had a great experience at the grand tavern. - The service was excellent; we had a very knowledgeable and attentive server. - The food was very good; everything we ordered was delicious, however it was a little heavy (lots of meat!) . There were not many vegetarian options -my only two complaints are: a) plastic straws- I thought most restaurants, especially near the ocean were doing away with single use plastics, it was a little surprising; and b) an electronic menu. Going to dinner and needing to pull out my phone to look at a menu is a major turnoff.

    The food was great but the music was deafening. It was hard to relax and enjoy our meal. I’m a barre teacher — so accustomed to speaking loudly over music — but this was some next level auditory assault.

    I think during peak dinner hours you could do without background music. The space is comfortable and inviting but the acoustics are not great. The rock music just adds to the chaos. We had a little trouble conversing during dinner. Or maybe we’re just old!! Everything was delish though.
