My boyfriend and I love this place, great food! Can't wait for the return in the spring! Not sure how the one person left a poor review when they weren't even open in January due to the fire.

This was something my kids wanted to try and I was hesitant but decided to give it a go. As others have stated there was a long wait for our server and it was not busy. The waitress was nice but not very knowledgeable so service was average at best. We had a coupon on my phone which I was... More

Hi- Not sure if this is the right place. First, the restaurant has been closed since 12/16/17 do to a fire, second, we have not had a female server for almost 2 years now & third, we honor any/all coupons. Very sorry for your issue. Thank you. More

This is just to let people know that the restaurant had a fire in December due (per the newspaper) to a wire that sparked in the kitchen after hours.

The Gryphon is without a doubt the best restaurant/pub in Elizabethtown. Don't get me wrong, the other establishments (Lucky Ducks, Legacy, TJ's) have great social environments, but the FOODIE in me says Gryphon. The menu is always fluid, and I love it. They still keep some of the best on the menu going (obviously), and it's always a new experience.... More

While my daughter is 8 and really wanted to try it, I had been here a couple of times and never had the best experience. However, things change, so I agreed to give it a try...again. We arrived between 5:30 and 6:00, to find one... More

The food here never disappoints. They have such a great selection of local farm to table options that are prepared perfectly by Tony. This is by far my favorite place in the area. Their new addition of skate to the menu is delicious! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable--check it out!

This place should be PACKED every night they are open.....they support local farmers, producers, breweries, etc....NOT A SYSCO TRUCK SHOP! This is a nano business with the owner/operator there everyday!!! Great to speak with the owner while they craft a bartender's choice cocktail....he made me a drink with Booker's 128 proof bourbon, El Dorado 15 year old demerara rum, Cognac... More

This place makes you feel like family! This is a great place to eat-never had a bad meal here. They use local ingredients in such creative ways. Great place to get craft beer-taps are always being rotated. Cocktails are great-pumpkin spice martinis yum!!
