The Ginger Man opened in Greenwich in August of 2002 and instantly became one of the area’s most popular restaurants. Known for its warm and inviting atmosphere, the Ginger Man is a favorite among Greenwich locals and neighboring communities. Whether you are looking for a quick burger (maybe the best burger anywhere!), sandwich, or salad with friends or an intimate dinner at a table by the fireplace, The Ginger Man offers you a unique dining experience.

The Ginger Man’s menu accommodates people of all ages with everything from grilled cheese to entrée-sized salads and two to three fish selections daily. The restaurant still uses a real butcher from the New York City marketplace to hand pick its steaks and blend that special mix for its famous burgers.

The Ginger Man features 23 taps, 80+ bottles and a well chosen wine list from small and large Vineyards around the world. The Ginger Man’s burgers and beers were voted “best burger” and “best beer selection.”

This a “go to place” for us for everyday dining. Usually we would give every category an excellent but this time just very good.
My wife’s steak salad was not the way it used to be as the steak was tough and she suspects a cheaper cut of beef. Service was okay but again not quite up to our usual experience. Maybe either staff shortage or new? Waiter forgot to return my credit card until reminded.
We will be back and expect things will have gotten back to normal but won’t order steak salad again.

The Ginger Man is a Greenwich standard. The staff is always friendly and welcoming, and the food is consistently great. The bar area is beautiful as well. This is the Connecticut version of CHEERS, except with an awesome menu. Try the fish & chips, and you'll dream about it.

We always enjoy a visit to the Ginger man when we're in Greenwich.
A nice selection of draft beers, and a casual place to just unwind. In Winter the fire-placed dining area is a treat.

I showed up to the restaurant and was informed that they had an “issue with food delivery,” and the kitchen was closed. They said they could seat us, but they had nothing but water and guacamole. Why couldn’t they have called me in advance to let me know? My phone number was on this reservation. Terrible service, unprofessional waiting staff. What kind of restaurant runs out of food? I will never be coming back here again, and I will be informing my friends to avoid this place.

This is the only regular restaurant my family visits in Greenwich for years now and is also a good choice for late night snacks. Food is very good; Bavarian pretzel, turkey burger with sautéed onions, fries, CT beer.

Stop the outdoor service. Too many parking spaces are lost on what is already a difficult place to park.

Food is very good with reasonable prices.

First time at this place and we will probably not go back. New parents with a 2 months old baby and the manager asked us to leave the stroller in the front of the restaurant and find a way to carry the baby or put her on a high chair! Obviously he probably doesn’t have children or grandchildren to know that a 2 months old still can’t sit!! Zero distance between tables. Food was greasy and Coffee was cold.

Excellent steak frites! Our server Susan was lovely and very attentive. We sat in the back with the fireplace and it was perfect - not too noisy which was helpful because one of people in our party is hard of hearing. Love the G man. I'll be back again!
