Good little place for lunch. Very busy for both sit down and take out. Friendly efficient staff and decent prices. We had hot dog and cheese toasted sandwich. Good portions and tasty.

Super friendly people! Sat at the counter! Great meal! Cool old school atmosphere. Like the NY diners of old. Stop by after taking the Staten Island Ferry from Manhattan!

Arrived shortly after 7am, was informed grill wouldn't be on for 20 min (place opens @6am?). We said ok, seated at the table for 5 min and never offered coffee. A regular customer walked in and was served right away, we got up and left.

They make a great BLT. Maybe the best I've had so far on the Island. I have to say I love this place, sad only that i no longer work in the area so I don't go there as often.

I came to the city to visit some friends, I had never been to Staten Is and. We took the ferry over to see what Staten Island had to offer and we wondered into the Gavel Grill. Two big thumbs up... excellent food, friendly service and surprisingly reasonable prices. I ate the turkey burger and a bowl of chili and... More

My neighbor eats at the Gavel Grill twice daily and met him there for lunch recently. Wanted something light (my normal lunch) and enjoyed conversation with the waiter Mike and my neighbor. Have returned several times since to enjoy its tasty dishes and interesting conversation.

This is a small coffee shop. Very good vegetarian selections. Friendly staff. Closes early (2:30 PM) on Saturday and closed on Sunday. Great place to go with a friend. Close to ferry and St. George Theater,

Took the Staten Island Ferry to do something a bit different. We got a bit hungry and saw the Gavel Grill with its $8.95 lunch special of a Cubano Sandwich. Sounded good. My wife had the Cubano and while good, was not quite traditional, but satisfying. I had the Chili Burger and was not overflowing with chili which made it... More
