We stopped in on a Monday night, after 10pm for a late bite and a drink. A handful of people were sitting at the bar, which was a very cool setup. Really captured the feeling of an authentic Irish pub. Had many beers on tap and really cool craft cocktails. Food was excellent! Had the blarney bread, outstanding! Fish tacos... More

Your typical Irish pub and grill, with many traditional Irish menu items. Wide selection of burgers and beverages. Reasonable prices. Not outstanding, but still darn good!

This place was packed wall to wall when I visited. The wait was kind of long but they were super busy. The food is good.

Great for lunch and also great for drinks on the patio! I go here weekly. I would give it 5 stars but the inside needs some updates. Carpet, smells like an old bar, (which it is)etc. love their ranch!

Griffin Grill and Pub has a much improved menu and portions are plentiful. Drink prices are reasonable too. Wait staff friendly, sometimes overwhelmed because it's so busy. Great Burgers!
