"We're not here for a long time so we might as well be here for a good time!"
Griffin Tavern is simply a social gathering place for everyone. The Tavern is a casual dining restaurant with three cozy dining rooms, a “cheers” style bar where friends and strangers mix and mingle and a wonderful outdoor area for seasonal dining. We also have rooms upstairs that are perfect for private dining, small functions, and business meetings. Griffin Tavern is an internet friendly restaurant and pub with WiFi access.
Our menu features home-style cooked meals and pub favorites using fresh ingredients and local products: Fish n’ Chips, Tavern Wings, Shepherds Pie, Great Hamburgers, Seafood and Steak specials, as well as affordable appetizers, salads, and a Children’s Menu. We have a full bar featuring imported and micro brew draft beers. We also have a nice wine selection which includes local wines from our area.
This time of year is hard to beat!! The temperature is cooler for the many hiking options, the local vineyards have just harvested their grapes, the County has many talented artisans ready to greet you at their shops, and the stress of the Summer heat has left us. At night, with the humidity gone, you can walk outside and the stars seem so much brighter.
If you have any opportunity to come out and visit with us at Griffin Tavern, please do. You do not want to miss the leaf season. We know life is busy, but you really should make time for the beauty of the mountains as the trees begin to transform. It always reminds me of a colorful patch blanket, like the ones my Grandmother used to make.
