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.”

My favorite restaurant in southern Connecticut. It’s a 45 minute drive for us but well worth the time and effort.

Can always count on great food and great service. Menu is not huge, something for everyone. Food was prepared as we requested, drinks were good, desserts were very good (and thanks for the birthday candle). a little noisey as the bar was hoping...but manageable. Fun time.

We went for Christmas Eve dinner and it was wonderful. Great service and delicious food and the whole restaurant was decorated for Christmas and looked beautiful! I would highly recommend any time of year!

I have gone here for several years and tried almost everything on the menu. There is nothing that is not delicious. We have almost always had the same waitress who is attentive and totally helpful. I will continue going to and enjoying Gingerman

Used to be a great place. Now the food is very bad (we ordered a steaks that turned out to be tough as soles, the chicken fingers for our boy were burned) and very expensive. The menu choices are very limited.

Burgers and Turkey burgers were overcooked. The mixed drinks have always been very weak and expensive.

They have phenomenal food. Their Salmon is excellent, crispy surface with excellent Risotto and sauce

Their portion size is quite big.

Despite having a very busy day with all tables full, the service was phenomenal. I have to thank Al at the front desk who stepped in to make sure that the orders were taken quickly as we sat down itself, Alexa then took over from there and even Franklin was very helpful.

I will recommend this restaurant to all and we will frequent it more often.

The chopped salad with goat cheese and an add-on of shrimp was good. Smaller than I’d like though. The steak wrap was just ok. Missing something. Our waitress was 3 star, and not very helpful/friendly. The water guy needed to be filling quicker as we were without water a couple times. I think for a restaurant in Greenwich I was expecting 5 star food and service. This is 3 star at best. Nice atmosphere, but I didn’t care for sitting so close to strangers as I’m sure they didn’t appreciate sitting near me!

What a horrible experience today, it was overrun with preteens at each table on their own, throwing things at each other and loud. Food took forever & looked like they slapped all the food onto plate just to get it out. Left
mid meal we couldn’t take the craziness or the food.

We were seated up stairs which is quieter than the pub below. Ambience was nice and the food, for pub food, was quite good. Two turkey burgers and two salmons were enjoyed by our group. Apple crisp for desert was average though. Overall we were very pleased with the experience and value.

Very nice ambience for a chilly evening, fireplace burning. Lively atmosphere but not too loud for a quiet conversation. Tasty burger, and very delicious roasted chicken. Super pleased with our whole evening.

The Ginger Man is a neighborhood gem. It is a pub. Unfortunately, they changed the menu and removed and changed a lot of our favorite dishes. The service is nice.

Food was good, with ample choices on the menu.
For indoor dining, i thought that the tables were way too close together. Did not see any real restrictions in place.

The Ginger Man is a wonderful pub/bistro in Greenwich with great food and pretty good service. The burgers are great, drinks are terrific, outdoor and indoor dining choices and overall we love it. One suggestion would be to have all employees super clear on allergies. I called to ask about whether they cook with peanut oil and immediately the gentlemen said no, but I could tell he wasn't sure. I asked him to please check with the chef and when he came back on the phone he definitely said, "Yes we cook with peanut oil. It's a combination of vegetable and soybean oil." That's a quote. I explained to him politely that those are not peanut oil, then he said, "No, we don't cook with peanut oil." Not trying to cause an issue , but rather help solve a problem. With all the struggles that hospitality is going through, just a suggestion to mgmt to have stuff thoroughly briefed on issues like this and how to attend to them so they can attract as many diners as possible.

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.
