First time at Green Dragon. Very impressed with the facility, historical museum, and service. Breakfast was fine, with substantial portions and good flavor. We will return and try other items (Maryland crab cakes and Maine lobster roll).
Coffee was very good.

This is a unique restaurant AND museum. You can walk around with your happy hour drink and enjoy some wonderful memorabilia from the earliest years of our country. There is also a coffee shop and bookstore. Enjoy sports and dine in the bar, or enjoy a quiet dinner in the dining room. Also great food and desserts.

The food was great!
Noise level was just too high; we could barely talk to each other
Service was ok; the waiter was a nice guy but he forgot to bring us the appetiZer prior to our food arriving so we had to cancel it.
We have eaten dinner at the Green Dragon ...
We have eaten dinner at the Green Dragon twice and both times, I've been struck by the creativity of the chef. The combinations of flavors are unique and delicious. Although the New England Cod was cooked perfectly, it might have been bland, but thanks to the chorizo and sautéed kale, the dish popped! The Braised Short Ribs were the best I've had - tender, with very little fat; just outstanding. Last, but not least, the fresh honeycomb on top of the Bacon Wrapped Chicken was an amazing addition to a dish that was already excellent.

I just love, love this restaurant! On Monday this week, I took a friend for lunch here and I was a bit embarrassed by her actions towards her meal. It is NOT how I would ever behave but she did. She grabbed the survey that came with the bill and filled it out before I even knew what happened!!! I felt so bad that when I got back home, I called and spoke with your hostess and apologized for my friend's comments. I asked her to please let Cierra, our adorable and attentive waitress, that I had called so that she didn't think she was not A+ because she was fantastic.!!!! It is still my favorite restaurant and where I want to take my friends for a delicious experience.. Best to all of you there at Green Dragon. 😊

This was only our second visit to the Green Dragon, but it cemented our view that they provide both good food and good service. We ordered a bowl of clam chowder , the Scottish salmon and the steak frites. They do have a children's menu (and provide crayons to keep little ones occupied), but this time, we just shared with the 2 1/2 year old who wasn't keen on the chowder, but happily ate the steak and fish. Everything was delicious and the steak was cooked to my specifications. We will definitely keep Green Dragon on our list when we're up in the Carlsbad area.

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.

This was a unique experience. We ate on the tavern side. I had the Lobster roll. It had great taste, but it was not the best lobster roll I have had. The atmosphere was fun and relaxing. This is a great place if you want to try something new.

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.
