The Tavern is a replica (ish) of a tavern in Boston. The documentation of the Pilgrims arrival and how the US grew from the first boats is fascinating. The food is quite good, more New England than California. The drinks are solid.

We so enjoyed the burger at the Green Dragon Tavern yesterday, my husband wants to go back today! We also very much enjoyed the museum and spent a great two hours there eating and exploring. Great service as well. Highly recommend it.

The restaurant is in/next to a small colonial American history museum, which was also great. The service was spot on and the food was well served and presented. I place to which we'll return.

What a surprise! A replica of a Revolutionary War era Boston tavern in Southern California. Great bar menu and staples like Shepard's Pie to add to the Colonial atmosphere. Biggest treat....a Revolutionary War museum. Don't miss this.

This place was built to be a architectural replica of the Paul Revere Green Tavern in Boston. The food is excellent and there is also a small museum with original artifacts from the owners collection. Awesome little find! Highly recommended!

Green Dragon Tavern & Museum is a stunning replica of Boston's original Green Dragon Tavern, demolished in 1854, where Sam Adams, Paul Revere and other founders met in secret to plan the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution. Paul Revere departed the Green Dragon Tavern for his famous ride to Lexington and Concord notifying Patriots that "the British are coming!" And "One if by land, two if by sea". Visit our site to learn more about all that GDT&M has to offer. Whether touring our museum, savoring our New England Inspired New American Cuisine in our highly acclaimed restaurant, secretly meeting to plan your company's next revolutionary concept, or hosting a banquet of up to 200 persons seated or more in our event space, a historic experience awaits you.
