    First time here after wanting to come for two years. I heard so many good things and I was not disappointed! I love it! The good was outstanding and the service was impeccable. I liked the cozy atmosphere. While the menu is limited, I feel that anyone can find something delicious to eat. More dessert selections please

    The scallop appetizer was excellent, the steak good and the grouper (with the skin) slightly fishy. The food is heavily salted which I find a lazy (and unhealthy) way to amp up flavor. We sat at the bar (with a reservation) and the service was very good. Quite noisy however. Lime cocktail was delicious and refreshing.

    I absolutely love everything The Grand Tavern has to offer. The vibe, the staff, best playlist of #music, the mocktails, and most importantly, to me, the food. Every dish whether it’s the gem salad, empanada, baked oysters, steak, pork, fish it’s always at its best no matter how Chef Paul creates it. My favorite part that he gets 100% right is, if the dish is meant to be cold it’s cold and if the dish is meant to be hot it’s hot. Also very important is it is always consistent, for example the burger will be the same delicious burger every time you bite into it and damn it is a great burger.

    We have been here numerous times. Really dislike having to use my phone as a menu, I’m there to dine and talk to friends, not stare at a phone. My wife doesn’t drink, on a previous visit, one of the bartenders told her that they have a rotating monthly mocktail, apparently this isn’t the case. Overall, we were a bit disappointed.

    We sat at the bar and enjoyed the kitchen show. Our food was amazing - I had the grilled swordfish. My husband had the pork chop and he nearly finished it (he never finishes his entrees)

    Looking forward to eating here. Heard great things about the restaurant. Service was very slow. Prices were very high. Limited selection. Burgers had very salty bacon and it overpowered the taste of the burger. Happy we tried it, but won’t go back.

    The swordfish was the best I ever had. Cookked to perfection. The other people in my party raved about their meals also. We sat outside. The weather was beautiful and the music was a great addition. They have great cocktails and the wine list was pretty extensive. Can't wait to go back!!

    The Grand Tavern is by far one of the best restaurant at the Jersey Shore. This was the 3rd time I've been there in a month. Eating at the bar is the way to go! Pricey, but so well worth it. It's GRAND!

    We went to Grand Tavern on the recommendation of a friend. It was a great find. So good, in fact, we went on back-to-back nights. On the first night we sat out in the back, at the bar and had dinner. The server/bartender took great care of us and mixed a great cocktail. The second night we sat inside where the decor is eclectic, but the service was just as good. The inside was a bit noisy, but it wasn't overwhelming. Food wise, the menu is just the right size. Not too many offerings, but everything we had both nights was very good. Recommend: tile fish, pork chop and the empanada appetizer. We'll definitely be back soon.

    Experience is always enjoyable. Current heat wave taxed the A/C system so it was very hot and humid for inside dining. Food and service were excellent.
