Fun place for lunch or a drink. The atmosphere made me think of Harry Potter. :) Fish and chips were excellent.

We were looking for an inexpensive lunch for our family of picky eaters, and this was the perfect solution. For the boy, they had a giant hot dog; everyone else was happy with good sandwiches. I had the fried shrimp, which was very good. Lots of beers to choose from as well, and great character to the place.

We love to visit older, local establishments and the Griffon is a classic. We had a great time there!

Found this little place while making our way toward the Water Taxi before lunch. We stopped in and it was definitely a smaller place so parties of more than 6 may have a hard time finding a place to sit. The service was good and the food was great for the price. I had the fish and chips, which were... More

The atmosphere was great and we had great service. We had the mozzarella sticks for an appetizer which were really good and the fried chicken as an entree which was also good. The fish and chips were just okay, not as great as I was expecting based on other reviews.

While the Griffon has a great atmosphere and it is great to see the walls covered in dollar bills, it was less than wonderful. The voted #1 fish restaurant was less than #1 for us - it was just average. We were disappointed in the food and the service. Probably will not visit again.

I had the fish and chips which were pretty good. The wife had chicken tenders made with real chicken. The kids had a burger and a club which they enjoyed as well. The service was fast, the food was good and it was really affordable for a family of four. Not a big place so there isn't a lot of... More

Great service for a pub. Bartender/waitress was very good and provided amazing service. Fish and chips were as good as advertised. The location is right next to Waterfront Park so it is convenient. Definitely recommend this place! Oh and the dollar bills all over the place is very cool!

Fun place to stop in for a quick cocktail to escape the heat! It's close to all of the action in the historic district and we enjoyed looking at all of the dollar bills attached to the walls from all over the world! Fun place!
