Walked by this restaurant several times and decided to have an early dinner there one night. Dinner was delicious. Only bad thing was they close at 6:00 p.m.! Oh - and their specialty drinks would have been better if they contained alcohol!

It was very hot, walking in Jones street we found this place went in and thought yes, we must have something here. We ordered a delicious peach and berry drink, it was amazing. Decided to come back here when we visit again.

Gryphon Tea House is managed and run by SCAD. Waiters start out with a history of the former apocathary run by a family whose crest is the gryphon. Beautiful setting for a delicious meal. Sandwiches and entrees were very good. Service was excellent. Afternoon tea...More

Very relaxing place to have lunch, especially after walking around in hot summer. The foods are above average, but not superior in taste.
