Everything about Grand Tavern is wonderful. Food, drink, setting and, most of all, people. Everyone is warm and friendly, fun to watch the crew in the kitchen. We love sitting at indoor or outdoor bars, or at the picnic tables in the back garden when the weather is nice. Our favorite spot at the shore.

What's not to love?! Great service, great food, great ambiance! Truly a wonderful experience with wonderful staff. Anthony was very helpful and responsive with our reservation, and Erin our bartender was awesome, too. Can't wait to go back and try the burger everyone talks about!

We go to The Grand regularly so a great experience is no surprise. Ashley is the poster lady of running a friendly and efficient "front of the house". We usually gravitate to bar seating which was available this visit. All the bar tenders are friendly, cordial and efficient.
My wife had the burger which is always a "go to" item. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly and served over a tasty risotto and some peas with greens atop. A very nice combination indeed.

Try it, you'll like it! Suggest you use the Open Table option. As we get further into the "season" a reservation is recommended.

The Grand Tavern has been one of our favorites since it opened. Paul and Ashley run a first class "Tavern" with outstanding food and service. The menu changes periodically so it never gets old.

My wife and I both had the Chicken Schnitzel last night and ....don't miss it.

Cheers. Mike T

Food was outstanding- was extremely disappointed that 3 chefs, all standing in the window of the kitchen, were unmasked, and remained unmasked throughout the duration of my service.

The food was incredible but to be unmasked in a food service establishment seems largely insensitive. Diners have no way of knowing if these chefs are vaccinated, nonetheless should still be wearing masks.
