Arrived here after a bad experience at a nearby restaurant. The food was tasty, well cooked and very reasonably priced. Not posh but good food and excellent friendly service.

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.

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,
