Green Dragon Tavern & Museum Ratings and Reviews
We were surprised to find the lobster roll so good. We had dinner there about a year ago and did not find the food very good. We assume you now have a new chef and will try dinner there again and will order a different dish. Unfortunately the room is very noisy even though there were not many people there. The sound carries and there is not enough insulation to absorb the sound.
Service has really gone downhill in the past couple years since this restaurant opened. Food has always been excellent, the quality is top notch. Wish they had more fish and vegetarian options. Service is slow and wait staff not very knowledgeable. Very young, and management has not learned how to train them correctly or order enough food, as there is usually something not available when we eat here. Sometimes it's our favorite beers, last time , On Easter Sunday,it was lobster. used to love this place with it's New England charm, felt like home. But we've become quite disappointed and probably won't be returning.
It was our second time at this place. As always we enjoyed the food, but this time the service was really slow. We were going to leave because we waited almost an hour for our food to come. We even told our waitress that we are going to leave if we don't get our food for another 10 minutes. She apologized and said that they only have 2 chefs working in the kitchen. The manager came to our table to apologize as well. I told her that the reason we came back because the first time we came, we were impressed by how quick the service was and we enjoyed the food.
I was surprised though because the restaurant wasn't that busy and yet it took almost an hour before our order came. The first time we dine here, we were seated at the dining room, but this time, they seated us at the bar area. If we ever come back again, I guess I have to request to be seated at the dining room and not the bar area.
Food and venue are great, my only complaint this time was we waited forever for our appetizer then it finally came and then 2 minutes later they brought out our food. It would have been nice to enjoy the pretzel sticks while they were still warm while we were waiting for our food.
WE actually go to the Green Dragon tavern often. Usually for a couple of drinks. But I have also been there numerous times for lunch or dinner--their food is excellent. Service is great atmosphere is great!! Hate to highly recommend as I don't want to see it get any more crowded---but in all fairness--highly recommended!!
Really special place. Their appetizers were very reasonably priced and very tasty. Nobody was disappointed in our party of 5. After dinner, Mr. Bartlett, the owner of all the museum pieces gave us a special tour and special insight on all the history. A very nice and sociable man. Would go back anytime.
Great find... Thanks Open Table! We had the clam chowder in a sourdough bowl, the South Western Crab Cake, and a wedge salad split for two for starters. We then ate the Chef's Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese, the Short Rib burger and the Green Dragon Turkey Club. All dishes were delicious and well cooked. Cocktails were very tasty and the service was impeccable!
Loved getting a little history after our meal. The restaurant decor is outstanding! Colonialism everywhere, I felt as if I were in one of their homes having my dinner! The food looks as good as it smells. I had the short run and it was great!! I highly recommend you visit and try for yourself
My husband and I went to Sunday brunch once and it was good so I recommended it when several of my friends wanted to go to lunch. First of all, the noise level is extremely high so hard to have a conversation.
Two of us ordered the fish and fries. The fish was so dry and over cooked neither of us ate ours. The fries were excellent. By the time the waitress come by to see how our food was the other two in our party had finished their meals. So when she asked if we wanted something else, we said no, not at this point.
They did take it off the bill, but this is a real pet peeve of mine when a waitress does not come back soon after serving the food to see how things are. When things aren't good who wants to sit there not eating while everyone else is eating? Who also wants another meal brought after everyone else is done?
Waitresses need to understand this and make it a point to come back to the table to make sure all is well soon after being served!
It seems bit misplaced trying to be a New England or East Coast Tavern on the West Coast. The Museum piece was interesting but not a must see. Food, service, value, and the ambience was just so-so. Might be an OK place to watch a sports event like baseball or football as there are plenty of TV's for viewing. However, we weren't impressed.
First time dining here. Unique decor & menu for the area. Didn't get to visit the on-site museum, but the history of the place is intriguing. Really enjoyed the clam chowder and the Connecticut lobster roll, but my husband was disappointed in the fish & chips. Three different areas of dining - traditional dining room, main bar area, and upstairs. We chose upstairs and had a pleasant experience. Tables were spaced far enough apart you had a little privacy. Would like to return to try something different from the menu.
Third time guest. Party of four for lunch.Met with out-of-town relatives who chose the venue as they stayed at a hotel close by. The tavern is nicely appointed, but a bit too noisy for everyone to hear one another well, particularly for one member, my 87-year old mother with hearing loss. Our waiter was pleasant, gave us lots of time to decide on orders as we were so caught up with visiting. However, he did not come by for simple things like refilling water. The food was better last year when I ordered the same salad. Seems they skimped a bit on the very tiny chunks of chicken. Lovely concept overall, the museum. Friendly hostesses!
Met friends for dinner. We arrived ahead of our reservation and were seated promptly. Our waiter was extremely polite and helpful and very attentive. The food was excellent. The brussel sprouts and calamari appetizers were great. My short rib burger, ordered med-rare, was med-well, but was still juicy and tasty. It gets rather noisy on the bar side so is difficult to have conversations across the table. They have a separate dining area that may be quieter. They also have an upstairs area however my experience is that you feel a bit forgotten about up there. Overall, this is a decent place, service is great, food is excellent, price is about average for the area.
They did not disappoint! Tasty warm lobster roll (yum), short ribs, pastrami burger all were great. I had the apricot rum punch and it was delicious and yes, definitely had a punch. Dessert was warm apple pie with salt caramel ice cream and it was gone in 10 seconds. Fun place and atmosphere.
Always an incredible experience with great customer service and food is exceptional.
Hector was our server and as usual was great.
Brunch on Sunday with happy hour offered all day Sunday with food and beverage deals. The champagne they use is he best in North County and for $10 bottomless mimosas you can't beat this. They also have $5 huge Bloody Mary.
Try the wings, the Brussel Sprouts, Lobster Roll with Wedge salad on the side....
