Quick return visit to the island and no regrets finding the Gravel Grill. Made to feel welcome and food tasty, quick and fun.

My go to breakfast place, very clean and yummy food. It's a neighborhood diner with some Greek option food and really good burgers. The staff is very friendly as well. Give them a try

Popped over to Staten Island as a fill-in before flying home. We took a short walk up the hill and found the Gavel Grill. Warm welcome on entering and seated and handed the menus. Food order taken and delivered promptly. Food was great, albeit beef burger and chips, but quality is quality! Would recommend the short walk from the ferry... More

Arrived here after a bad experience at a nearby restaurant. The food was tasty, well cooked and very reasonably priced. Not posh but good food and excellent friendly service.

Good little place for lunch. Very busy for both sit down and take out. Friendly efficient staff and decent prices. We had hot dog and cheese toasted sandwich. Good portions and tasty.

Super friendly people! Sat at the counter! Great meal! Cool old school atmosphere. Like the NY diners of old. Stop by after taking the Staten Island Ferry from Manhattan!

Arrived shortly after 7am, was informed grill wouldn't be on for 20 min (place opens @6am?). We said ok, seated at the table for 5 min and never offered coffee. A regular customer walked in and was served right away, we got up and left.

They make a great BLT. Maybe the best I've had so far on the Island. I have to say I love this place, sad only that i no longer work in the area so I don't go there as often.
