$47 for a mediocre burger and 2 drinks. Homeless people talking to you while you eat.

Pretty good overall, the Vegan Rice was INCREDIBLY salty, but the veggie burger and corn/pasta dish were great.

Never disappointed. For the last 10 years we have always get the wings, no question the best in town, also had the tar tar, and octopus and both were on point. Great service and atmosphere.

I ate at TGT for an early lunch and had the fried chicken sandwich with the pimento cheese. Thankfully the server warned me about the heat in this sandwich and recommended the chili sauce on the side. I was grateful for that! I also ordered fries which came out with rosemary interspersed. The sandwich was good but not overly impressive. The fries were okay, but could have used more salt or flavor and less rosemary. The service was outstanding and I LOVED the VHS tape wall and check presenters.

Great service!! The food was excellent for everyone but one person said their pork tenderloin was a little dry (but great flavor)! Lamb burger was AMAZING! Highly recommend! Overall, great place to eat and celebrate a birthday!

Nicely decorated but very dark in the back where we were seated. A little more ambient light would be good. Food was delicious and fresh.

The food came out cold and before our drinks. The “skillet” is literally 4 eggs with nothing else. The dinners here I have had have been great but the brunch service and food was lacking in an early Sunday.

My boyfriend and I were visiting Cleveland for the weekend and heard great reviews about GHT. Our server was great and we enjoyed our seats out on the patio. The steak was awesome! The charcuterie plate wasn’t our favorite. Would have liked details on what was included in charcuterie plate for the day.

We visited the restaurant after reading a glowing magazine review, and were happy to find it a casual and easygoing atmosphere (expected something fancier and stuffier given the praise for the food). Service was great and the food was off the charts. Loved that they have all different price points and portion sizes that suit any appetite levels. The East 4th street location is festive and fun.

Everything is prepared with care and delicious. the server really nice and knowledgeable. We went late at night after a ball game and it had a bit of a rowdy-bar-y atmosphere that was probably more fun for some others than us.

Outside patio was nice. Service was fine - waitress was good, but too busy with other tables which made getting drinks very slow. Food was good, but not the best I’ve ever had.

Salad was the best part of our meal. The large entrees were mediocre, nothing special or unique. We were seated next to a bussing station, our waitress spent more time talking there to other employees than checking on us and was not very knowledgeable on the menu.

I was disappointed in The Greenhouse Tavern. The lighting made me feel like I was in someone's converted garage. My salad had too much dressing which meant the greens were limp, nothing was crispy or crunchy. My steak, cooked perfectly, tasted good in the 1st 2 bites, but overall it was way too salty. I went elsewhere in search of dessert. I won't be returning.

Another great dinner at The Greenhouse Tavern ! We got the Flintstone sous vide short ribs which were succulent and excellent. Come hungry since this dish is very rich and almost too much for 2 people.

Had six for dinner so we were able to try many plates. Rice, tandoori carrots, Brussels sprouts and wings for apps. Strip steak, rainbow trout, tongue lasagna and a bucket of fried chicken. Everything was outstanding!
