Green Dragon Tavern & Museum Ratings and Reviews

My two lady friends and I enjoyed our brunch. One of the ladies was not happy with her pulled pork hamburger but didn't mention to our very nice waiter. She took it home for her dog in a container. Kind of feel it was something she should have handled right then. Other than that, the other two meals were great. We love this place to meet.

It's always a pleasure to visit and dine at the Green Dragon. The food and service are great and friendly like your relaxing at a friends house, very relaxed. They always go out of their way to conjure up something wonderful if don't see it on the menu. Thank you and we'll see you next time.

Great food, great service, and the Colonial museum to boot! A history-lovers dream come true! Looking at the banquet areas it looks like a wonderful place to host special events as well. Bar seemed lively but the dining area was quieter which was perfect for us. Book and gift shop were an added bonus!

Bar area was not too buys and a game was on so we opted to sit in the bar area. Food was not very good. Two of us got lobster rolls, one philly cheesesteak and one burger. One the one who got the burger liked their meal. The rest of us did not - we all felt like it was bland. The regular coke soda tasted off too.
We had a discount offer and were glad we tried it with that. We will not be returning.

This was our second visit to Green Dragon, and we were very pleased. The food was flavorful and well prepared (although my husband's steak, which he ordered medium rare, arrived closer to medium well--but it was still tender and delicious). We will definitely visit again.

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant for Father's Day. It was our first time at Green Dragon Tavern and walked in with a reservation at 10:00 am. The gatekeepers (hostesses) finally seated us at our table at 10:15a, not sure why it took them so long because we were the first rez on the list. It took the server another 10 minutes to get to our table and just take our drink order. I had this funny feeling things might not go well. By 10:45 we finally got our meal. The food was not very good. We ordered the Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes with an Apple topping and Eggs Benedict. The pancakes were very soggy and had canned apples lathered on top. The Benedict was just ok. The only pleasant thing was the very good looking waiters! Better luck next time I guess.
The service was incredibly slow, the food only adequate, and the room lacked any acoustics. Therefore, it was really loud due to the large party of ladies sitting behind, who seemed to be yelling the whole time. We couldn't wait to leave.
The museum was interesting though.

This was my second trip to the Green Dragon Tavern and Museum. Last time we sat in the bar area, where it was a bit noisy. This time I made a reservation, and we were given the option of dining in the dining room or the bar area. We sat in the dining room, and it was a great dining experience. The waiter was friendly and attentive, food was great (as it was last time), and it was a much quieter and more romantic atmosphere. I highly recommend this place . Arrive early and view the museum. Unique and well worth it!

The food was good for a brunch. What I did not like is the location of the food stations. They were located down a hallway into the museum area...kind of a hike from the dining room. I think they need to re-evaluate that situation. I will not return for a brunch.

Even though we had A reservation, we still had to wait 10 to 15 minutes to be seated. Thought that was a bit odd. The food was good. Nice selection of seafood. Maybe priced a little high though? Three of us ordered iced tea and I swear it was lemonade. It was yellow, tart and tasted like the lemon.
Excellent ambiance and menu
I came here with my boyfriend for our anniversary and loved it. We were seated by the fireplace, received as much attention as we wanted and needed, and enjoyed every last bit of the roasted sprouts, the risotto, and the mussels. We have and definitely will be back again soon!

We have stopped here several times on our way home from San Diego to Redondo. We have dear friends who live in Carlsbad and it's a good place for dinner. And the museum and history lesson about the Revolutionary War is amazing. My three dining companions had burgers and raved about them as well as the waffle fries. I had the shepherds pie - delicious. A bit richer than expected with the demi glaze sauce but good - and three portions - I had it for lunch and dinner the next day. We had hoped to sit in the dining room rather than the bar for a more quiet setting, but the dining room had closed by then (Sunday night) but the bar was still fine and it was a great evening. Fun pub/club feel. I'm sure I'll be back at some point when driving along the 5 freeway.
Apps and Ribs
The Green Dragon has amazing Short Ribs. They have a great rib entree and they put the ribs on a burger - wow it's good! We had the pretzel bites (great spicy dipping sauce) and fried brussels (tasty). It has nice ambiance and the servers are friendly and attentive.
Met up with a group of friends and enjoyed a great lunch in the Pub on a rainy day! The museum is an added bonus, and very interesting! The staff was very friendly and gave great recommendations. We also enjoyed watching The Masters playing in the background as we dined and visited! We were a small group of men and women aging from 40 - 60 and plan on going back!
Nice Happy hour selections
Four of us went for business happy hour. One of our employees hasnt had a proper lobster roll, so we chose this place to be her first experience. She loved the ct roll. Good meal as always, nice happy hour, somewhat upscale. Good craft beer selections.
Booked this for Easter not realizing they had were doing a buffet this year for Easter Sunday . Last year was a regular brunch menu. Was disappointed this year that I could not have the lobster eggs benedict, and it was a little pricey for brunch (considering it did not include champagne like I might expect for this price). Good over-all, but not what I had hoped.
St P's Day
This was our second visit to the Green Dragon Restaurant. Our first was all 5 stars so we invited another couple to treat to the special St. Patrick's Day celebration dinner. They had never been or heard of the Green Dragon. Although they knew what we were doing we kept the location a secret to be a surprise to for them. And they were surprised and impressed with the building. The meal was also a very big hit for all of us. The food arrive hot and was delicious.
