This was the first visit here for my wife and I. It surely will not be our last. Our reason for going there was a waiter we know, Sherell, who use to work at Bertucci's. The first thing I got was the New England clam chowder that was made there by the chef. It was awesome. My meal was the... More

This is right in the Wayne town center with nice outdoor patio. It's typical pub food. The service is average. Sitting outside you can still see the TV for the game. They serve the food pretty quickly.

When anyone in our group is dying for a great burger this is where we go. Meat is done to the customers specific liking. Soups are delicious make sure you order the seafood chowder. My only complaint is the ceaser dressing is weird. Not sure why it tastes odd, could be tarragon. The servers are always polite and get the... More

Excellent salads (iceberg lettuce! Good Bloody Mary's. Four of us friends stopped in after going to The Chanticleer Garden. It was the perfect end to a sunny, hot Sunday. The Palm and Asian Steak salads were fresh and delicious. The best part was the dressing.

A staple in downtown Wayne, Great American Pub is nothing to get your pulse racing. My family and I have been many times over the years. The location is nice, but the food is subpar, the service can be very slow, it's incredibly noisy with the bar basically in the restaurant, it's cramped. I'd certainly recommend passing on this unless... More

It looks like a more "authentic" pub from the outside but typical burger fare on the menu. Staff was very friendly and good selection of drafts with daily specials.

I enjoy summertime outdoor eating and the Great American Pub in Wayne is perfect for casual business lunches. The food selection is good and service is efficient without being rushed. The salad was superb - fresh and creatively flavored. One concern is occasional traffic noise but it is not a constant drone.

We ate here because we were in the area and because they had a considerable about of gluten free options for my wife. We ate at 3:00 on a Saturday, so it wasn't too crowded and we were seated right away. My concern when reading reviews was the service and the concerns were accurate. Our server forgot that I ordered... More
