We had delicious cuisine and excellent service. My husband's Branzino was excellent, our gem salad was great and both of our pizzas were perfect as well as our meatball appetizer. The tart lemon dessert completed our great dining experience.

About the restaurant
Just as 18th century taverns served as the epicenter of the communities they served, so too does the Green Dragon Tavern & Museum in Carlsbad offer a warm, family-owned gathering place today for San Diego friends and neighbors of all ages. The welcoming atmosphere is surpassed only by the highly acclaimed and award winning menu. Each dish is curated by with a focus on seasonal, locally sourced and sustainable ingredients. Craft cocktails, wines and 20 rotating local beers on tap pair perfectly with our savory fare. Our guests rave about our Maine lobster rolls, Shepherd's Pie, hand-tossed pizzas, fresh seafood, and braised short rib to name a few.

As part of the dining experience, guests are invited to travel back in time to the days when our nation's founders met in secret at the original Green Dragon Tavern in Boston. Explore our museum; documents and antiquities from the colonial and Revolutionary War eras and learn more about our nation's founders and their everlasting legacies.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time. The service was wonderful, and the chef was engaging. The food was tasty. However, the location could benefit from some updates. The worn carpeting and walls/doors detract from the overall experience. The pic at the end is always a nice touch!
