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

Wednesday night, wife and I decided to go out for dinner. Outside seating was available. Very nice beer menu, good appetizers. Good dinner, reasonable prices

Lots of activity, a large bar with room to enjoy dinner, sports on TV, excellent food. Loved the crab cakes (we got a small the first night, then got a large the second visit.) Good salad, good drafts (although not very many.) Plenty of bottled beers. Wine was a bit expensive for house, but it IS Pennsylvania.

We were visiting friends in town and they suggested lunch at the Great American Pub. We found it difficult to find a parking place and ended up walking quite a ways to the pub. We were seated pretty quickly and the service was very good. Table was pretty dark almost wished we had opted for outside. Seats were comfortable however.... More

Sometimes when travelling, all you want to do is try the local food in a place where the locals eat. The Great American Pub was great fun and the food was very nice - as one would expect. packed with locals, we found it pretty good value and worth the visit.

Went here with a coworker. The entire staff is unfriendly including the miserable host. I didn't see one person of the staff smile the two hours we were there. Food was a disappointment. I will not return.

Although I rated the Pub average, it could be called very good. The menu is varied and there are always at leased a dozen specials. Service is usually prompt and portions are decent. Some dishes are a little greasy (reason for average), but there is always something to order.
