She Said: After many many months of zero reviews, I am delighted to share my experience of Granary Tavern! I always visit this place on my visits to Boston and it NEVER disappoints! Both the food and drink menus are delicious. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and typically throw me a crafted, special drink!

During my last visit, we sat outside on the patio – It was beautiful, but hot out. I ordered a refreshing Sangria along with 2 flatbreads and tacos. We did a three cheese mushroom flatbread and a shrimp flatbread. Crispy and light. Made with delicious cheeses. Here are the facts:
soubise, herb roasted mushrooms, fontina, asiago, ricotta
scampi shrimp, roasted garlic cream sauce, shaved parmesan, arugula

We also tried the swordfish tacos. They were decent. A little on the drier side.
pineapple poblano salsa, shredded napa cabbage, avocado crema

Next time I’d definitely try the chicken and waffles off their brunch menu!

Pro Tip: The bartenders are awesome. If you are not sure what you’d like to drink, let them make a drink for you! Always awesome!

He Said: I had the Swordfish tacos, what i remember were awesome although we should ask my dog Lou about since he end eating the whole taco :). Drinks are on point here, I agree with she let the bar tenders give you the royal treatment and make you drunk or happy.
