We stopped in for a drink and a small bite. The drinks were just ok. Nothing very original and done with little finesse. The food I would say is not very good. This is not a place I would go for dinner or lunch based on this experience.

I am not one to order a bean burger when going out. Steak, fish, pasta....yes! Definitely, not a bean burger. The double decker rice and bean burger is right up there with the best meals I have ever had. Next time I go back, that is what I will order again.

We were very happy with our dinner. Food was very very good as was the service. It was a busy Friday night and there was a lot going on even at 9pm. Recommend a reservation if you're going at a popular time. We like places that are uniquely their own and the Greenhouse didn't disappoint. Some call it 'odd' but... More

My mom used to say that someone was an "odd duck". Greenhouse is an "odd duck". It is an awesome and wonderful duck all the same. The place is eclectic with an unusual menu. The sizes and shapes of each dish varied but each dish was awesome. As a whole it was unusual and unique with the food being some... More

I was so excited to try out Greenhouse Tavern and planned to meet a friend for a late lunch. WRONG! As it turns out, their menus change between lunch and dinner and we were stuck with the "in-between menu" which consisted of 4 appetizers that were all variations on fries and 4 entress which were all variations on burgers. Since... More

Had food and drinks on the rooftop, great spot to sit outside, with great views of area. Great location to stop before or after an Indians game!

Had lunch with colleagues. Service was a bit slow. I had the po boy fish sandwich. Not a traditional po boy. A variation but no spice. The service was also lacking. The food was acceptable but did not knock my socks off

Great menu. Best pork chop I've ever had. Some very unusual offerings. Want to try the pig head next time but there is a 55 min cook time. Same with the flintstone ribs. Cool up beat atmosphere. Outdoor dining when the weather permits.

We found this to be an odd restaurant. Fabulous food in many cases. The steaks, Flintstone ribs and Pigs head were all excellent. The service was iffy and the portions are inconsistent and not well explained. We were told that Firsts are 3 bites and Seconds were larger appetizers. We were not told that the ribs were big enough for... More

Visited here Spring 2014. Good Service and Good Food. We had the Appetizer of Bread with various spreads (Fats) very tasty. Everyone in our group ordered different dishes, but my wife and I shared the roasted pigs head. All I can say is it is some of the most flavorful parts of the pig I have ever had. Don't be... More
