The “Grand” never disappoints. Last night was a case in point - we shared ribs and flatbread appys - delicious- and followed that with Chicken, pork schnitzel and the reliably great burger - also delicious. Grab a seat at the bar and Justin or Erin will take care of you. As we got up to leave, we made another reservation - a recommended practice for this culinary haven.

You will find a very exemplary kitchen at The Grand Tavern. The menu is limited but what comes out of the kitchen is superb. I consider myself a foodie who has spent decades traveling the world so I know good food.

This restaurant hit a home run for us last night. The host was terrific - when we arrived early he happily took our drink order and served them to us outside since the bar was full, and then he seated us at a great table in the corner. The food was great too - appetizers like the Caesar salad and ribs were both delicious. The main courses were also fantastic - seared scallops, pork schnitzel and the burger with amazing fries. To top it all off, the special autumn dessert was an apple crepe-like dish made in a dutch oven and served with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Definitely put this on your list of go-to restaurants at the Jersey Shore!

The drinks were great. The food was ridiculously AMAZING. We went last night snd have spent all day today repeating “that food was really unbelievable.” Everything was perfectly cooked and flavored. Small menu so you can’t really have a chance to screw up a meal. I had to make reservations far in advance because it’s a small place. I already booked my next night over there. This is now an official regular spot for us. And for what you get, not overpriced. Just be careful- bring cash- otherwise there’s a surcharge to pay with a credit card.

Food is very good, albeit ‘rich’. Menu changes all the time and that a plus, but there is great variation in the size of plates / volumes of food across the menu, so your party may leave at different levels of being satiated. Service is usually good, but at times can be a bit sullen. Front of house host/ess is always charming and engaging.

There is only enough seats at a table for about 20-24 people inside. Don’t let that deter you from going. You can have an exceptional meal and service while sitting at the bar which will seat another 16 people. The seating outside usually closes this time of year. Make a reservation a couple days in advance . Hats off to the kitchen for creating incredible food every time we go. Craft cocktails are excellent especially the Old Fashion. I would also recommend the burger 🏆 , the Caesar salad, the pork belly, the scallops, and any dessert.

Service was excellent, but food choice is very limited. I will never go back to a high end restaurant that adds a service charge to your bill for using a credit card and does not tell you. Very tacky and uncalled for.

First review of the Grand Tavern but our third time eating here. The food is outstanding and I'm talking everything on the menu from apps to entrees. The cocktails are delicious and classic and last but certainly not least the server is outstanding and she is so personable and professional.

The space is small and as a result can get very noisy and at times makes it difficult to have a conversation.

The Grand Tavern was the best dining experience I’ve had in a long time. From the Manhattans, the eggplant/ricotta appy to the scallops, skirt steak then that delicious s’mores, dessert, it was an outstanding dining experience. The wait service was professional and engaging. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the chefs work their magic in the open kitchen!!

We enjoyed such a lovely evening at the Grand Tavern last night. We we lucky enough to have a table by the bar which gave us a window to where the magic happens. We got to watch the chef create each and every dish tasting everything along the way and putting the finishing touches on everything and you can just taste the love he puts into every dish he creates. We had an excellent meal with excellent service and can’t wait to come back.

Love this neighborhood spot, looked like a lot of locals go there to eat. Wish this was in my neighborhood. The dumplings were superb, the pork belly was savory delicious and the dumpling was soft and a little sweet. The burger was the best one I have had in a long time, fries were perfect, loved the metal tin you served them in. Young female bartender was like a ballerina behind the bar, friendly and efficient, she didn't miss a step. Would recommend this eatery, wish it was in my neighborhood. It was fun watching all the people talking to one another. So glad we found The Grand Tavern. Reasonably priced, will visit again.
Thank you, Kathy S
