This family-owned establishment prepares everything on the menu well -- very tasty and good portions. It's amazing how many different dishes come out of the small kitchen. I usually eat lunch there once a week, and also for business lunches. My favorite sandwich is the Salmon BLT, but I've had many other dishes on the menu. The Salmon BLT may... More

Not impressed with the food, not impressed with the service. I'd pass it by for other in-town eateries.

We ate at the Great American Pub on a Saturday night and seemed to sit just before the rush. We had a party of 5 and were seated in two booths divided by a wall that ended just above the height of the table which made it awkward to share appetizers. The food was good, especially the nachos and burgers... More

This was the first visit here for my wife and I. It surely will not be our last. Our reason for going there was a waiter we know, Sherell, who use to work at Bertucci's. The first thing I got was the New England clam chowder that was made there by the chef. It was awesome. My meal was the... More

This is right in the Wayne town center with nice outdoor patio. It's typical pub food. The service is average. Sitting outside you can still see the TV for the game. They serve the food pretty quickly.

When anyone in our group is dying for a great burger this is where we go. Meat is done to the customers specific liking. Soups are delicious make sure you order the seafood chowder. My only complaint is the ceaser dressing is weird. Not sure why it tastes odd, could be tarragon. The servers are always polite and get the... More

Excellent salads (iceberg lettuce! Good Bloody Mary's. Four of us friends stopped in after going to The Chanticleer Garden. It was the perfect end to a sunny, hot Sunday. The Palm and Asian Steak salads were fresh and delicious. The best part was the dressing.

A staple in downtown Wayne, Great American Pub is nothing to get your pulse racing. My family and I have been many times over the years. The location is nice, but the food is subpar, the service can be very slow, it's incredibly noisy with the bar basically in the restaurant, it's cramped. I'd certainly recommend passing on this unless... More
