Review: Grand Tavern

Wyoming, MI

#21 Dec 17, 2008
I have been there and I can say that the food was great and the service was also good. I'm a waitress myself so I know what it's like waiting on people. I'm sure they try their best to deliver good service. The managers, whatever vendettas some people on here seem to have against them also seemed friendly and professional. These reviews are beyond stereotyped, I can't believe what I'm actually reading on here. Obviously they're trying to do well for their business people, so screwing up orders, delivering cold food, hiring "dumb" staff isn't something they are aiming for. I'm sure every restaurant whether it be a family, fast food, or bar type is trying to achieve their best. Some comments are a little harsh and immature. Like I said, I've been waitressing for 9 years and I know what it's like to be busy and have to deal with some unruly people. Give it a chance for those who haven't tried it. Critics aren't the most reliable sources sometimes. I also find it hard to believe some people would hope to see others fail. Hoping to see it go out of business...that just goes to show what kind of character you really have. Definitely not right for anyone to say that.

This place is terrible, from the staff to the owners and everything in between, I would eat here again if it was the last place on earth.

The waitresses seem to care more about their looks than the service.

The service is great, the food is delicious, the prices are good, and portion sizes are perfect. The kitchen has a real chef (I asked) and not a bunch of short order cooks heating food in a microwave. Yes, the waitresses and bartenders are very attractive, and I know this because my husband and teenage son made it clear! The service is outstanding, and everyone is professional and friendly. The place is clean, the tv's are high def., and they serve martinis in real martini glasses - meaning they know how to make drinks. Just what we need in Farmington.

I was looking for the Grand Tavern website and this post came up...I'm shocked at the awful comments I've read on this post! I've been to GT several times and I'm a fan!!! I think the menu is awesome and service is great! And coming from me, that is saying a lot, because I'm very picky. It is definitely a fun - good food - fun bar atmosphere. I've almost always been greeted by one of the owners while there and I've never had a bad meal, bad drink or bad server. Grand Tavern has always been pretty busy whenever I've been there and I'm sure they will be very successful if they keep their service and food as good as it is now!

I have been to the grand tavern a few times since in opened last year and I have to say that both the service, food, and beer prices were all exceptional. Our male waiter was charming, and every time I have gone there they have always had an awesome drink special. There aren't too many great places in the farmington hills area, but this one takes the cake.

A group of 8 of us get together onece a week for beers. We were going on monday nights - decent atmosphere - staff was friendly and prompt. Then came the problem... they got rid of their great monday specials and our beer and food tab almost doubled without warning. There site still lists their monday "specials" even though they no longer offer them. I guess they'll lose our business and probably be fine... but that's a few thousand a year they'll be losing.

We went on a Tuesday night. Not very many patrons - unusually smokey. Thought milk was included as "drink" for 14 month old...$ 7.00 for small cup of milk and lackluster grilled cheese?????? Perhaps families are not their intended audience. French fries were above average.

I had christina as a waitress. She is awesome! The only reason I will be coming back if because of her friendliness and consideration.

Maybe they were just up and running. I think they opened in November. I was in for my son's 21st birthday. We had the ribs on special and they were great. The service was fantastic .

I am really glad that someone takes the time out of their lives to look up pictures of me on myspace. For all of your information I have never stripped or worked at the flight club in my life. I am flattered that I have made such an impression that you feel the need to try and sabotage our restaurant. For all other people that have better things to do with your life, Stop in and see us!!
