Voted BEST BAR IN CONNECTICUT over and over… - Connecticut Magazine
Named one of the TOP 100 BARS IN AMERICA - Esquire
In our Tap Room, Executive Chef Toppin features casual fare prepared exactly the way it was meant to be. Always straightforward, Chef Toppin's menus include burgers, house-made soups and chowders, fish 'n chips, and salads.
Our Tap Room, originally built in 1735 as a schoolhouse, was attached to The Gris in 1801 by a team of oxen, rolling it on logs down Main Street. It has been called the most handsome barroom in America, the best-looking drinking room in America, and variations on this sentiment expressed by many. Certainly it is an original. We are open seven days a week and entertain every night with live music and a spirited atmosphere.
