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 husband and I stopped in on our way home from NYC. It was very good for a quick bite in the bar watching golf. It was noisy in the bar that seemed like a fun Sunday afternoon hangout. My salad was terrific and my husband enjoyed his chicken sandwich very much!

Clearly a fixture in Greenwich (I'm from out of state) If you want bar food I guess it's ok.
Walked in and hostess was eating her own lunch (at noon!??) It was like I was inconveniencing her to get up. Had the fish tacos.. Ok anyone who's been to Baja should know better than to order fish tacos in Greenwich but save yourself!

Just felt old and tired..very disappointing

Had a nice dinner with my son with good food and always great service from Susan our waitress. It would of been even better but that night there was a very loud bunch of people singing loudly to the music, using fowl language and just overall obnoxious. I was surprised that the management didn’t say anything to them. It was very obvious that all the customers were well aware of them. Not a usual occurrence for the Gingerman, we will still go back.

we were three and had a wonderful table in the back room, which was quieter, on a Saturday night at 6:45. We all enjoyed the food, service was professional. We'd go back again.

Food and service were very good The problem was the noise. It would be smart and profitable to offer a quiet section, perhaps upstairs, and let the public know it can be chosen

We met family there and got a corner table upstairs with a comfy bench on one side, next to the window. We loved it! The Ginger Man came recommended to us by a friend who lives within walking distance of Greenwich Ave and knows most of the restaurants there. The food was delicious, service was friendly, our water was refreshed often and we weren't rushed at all.
Will definitely go back.

Hadn't been there for a long time. Went one of the recent extremely cold evenings over New Year's weekend. Sorta chose the place by default. Was presently surprised on the good bar, comfort food . Oysters $20 a dozen. Place was busy. Drawback: music very loud. Hard to have a conversation at the table.

I have fonder memories of the Ginger Man on the Upper East Side (Lex Ave in the 70s, I think?) - where I'd regularly run into a young rising TV star named...Matt Lauer - than this restaurant. The food is good, the service is fine, and I will doubtless return when I'm in the neighborhood, but by 7 pm several of the posted specials were already out, along with several beers on tap. Just annoying. The Greenwich restaurant's ambience is warehouse-y, no charm. The hostess was also a little brusque and dismissive. A final, long-standing Ginger Man pet peeve: serving a burger on an English muffin sounds like a thing, but it simply doesn't work if you plan on eating your burger with your hands.

Kind of a perfect experience: Sitting near the fireplace in the back room (although the upstairs dining is lovely too) with a menu so tempting we struggled to narrow down our order. We actually started with fried calamari, house-made hummus dish and SUPER spicy guacamole. I'm glad we waited to put in the main order, because I ended up splitting a cod special with my husband and our friends loved their food and had leftovers to take home.
The desserts looked amazing, but we were so stuffed.

It is SO cozy and charming with a very vibrant scene. Service was great. Definitely going back.

Totally annoyed and disappointed. From the hostess, bus boy to the waiter-- we were ignored, kept waiting and treated with total disinterest. When our food was served, only some of the order came. When we asked where the rest was we were told "it's coming". No one came and asked if we needed anything at any time. We finally got up to get a candle for the table because that request was ignored too. At the end the waiter tried to hand us dessert menus. We said no and got the check. We will never go back again. Not worth the trouble at all.

The evening started out a bit roughly with the hostess trying to seat the three of us in a Very noisy area near the bar downstairs. When i pointed out that we had made a reservation, she replied "people have reservations." When I replied that we did as well and had specifically asked for a quiet table so we could talk,the hostess reluctantly led us upstairs to a table near a wailing toddler ( I understand but we did ask for a quiet table). That said, the food and beer were very good albeit pricey. So be aware that you need to ask for a table upstairs unless you are there for the bar scene. ( and to be assertive) Do not recommend. Not customer friendly although the waitress was fine.

The kitchen tries to be creative and credit has to be great be given for the intention even though the outcome isn't as probably intended. The seafood risotto was tasteless; so was the lamb burger. The lobster chowder was tasty and so was the generously portioned Caesar salad.
Good beer list.

ALWAYS GOOD, BUT THIS WAS EXCEPTIONAL
i go to Ginger Man from time to time as the noise level is ok, and the food & service are reliably good. usually they have good beers too.
this time i couldn't quite find the right beer - the descriptions are ridiculous !
but everything else was exceptional. i had the blackened fish tacos which were AMAZING.
and our server, whose name i think was Diego, was just FANTASTIC. he patiently brought me several beers to taste before i decided on one. and he was very pleasant, very quick and generally great !
i'll be back soon, i'm sure.
