The Ginger Man opened in Greenwich in August of 2002 and instantly became one of the area’s most popular restaurants. Known for its warm and inviting atmosphere, the Ginger Man is a favorite among Greenwich locals and neighboring communities. Whether you are looking for a quick burger (maybe the best burger anywhere!), sandwich, or salad with friends or an intimate dinner at a table by the fireplace, The Ginger Man offers you a unique dining experience.

The Ginger Man’s menu accommodates people of all ages with everything from grilled cheese to entrée-sized salads and two to three fish selections daily. The restaurant still uses a real butcher from the New York City marketplace to hand pick its steaks and blend that special mix for its famous burgers.

The Ginger Man features 23 taps, 80+ bottles and a well chosen wine list from small and large Vineyards around the world. The Ginger Man’s burgers and beers were voted “best burger” and “best beer selection.”

First time at this place and we will probably not go back. New parents with a 2 months old baby and the manager asked us to leave the stroller in the front of the restaurant and find a way to carry the baby or put her on a high chair! Obviously he probably doesn’t have children or grandchildren to know that a 2 months old still can’t sit!! Zero distance between tables. Food was greasy and Coffee was cold.

Excellent steak frites! Our server Susan was lovely and very attentive. We sat in the back with the fireplace and it was perfect - not too noisy which was helpful because one of people in our party is hard of hearing. Love the G man. I'll be back again!

We went for Sunday brunch. The menu was simple, but sufficient. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and we sat by the fire, so the ambience was great.

The first time I came here I enjoyed myself. Second time around I brought my husband and had the worst experience. They sat us upstairs in an area which we noticed they were only seating people who maybe looked like they didn’t have money as well as young people or Greenwich kids. The service was okay, thank god the food was good but I don’t think I would come back anymore. Anyone else that came upstairs to be seated also noticed what the deal was about the restaurant. Picking and choosing who sits down stairs in the high end area isn’t right at all. Definitely expected better for this place, especially since I wanted to show it off to my husband.

Cocktails were not so great. Had a margarita and it was not a craft cocktail for the price. Maybe its a beer place...

Susan, the long-time server is always a pleasure. My salad was fresh, nicely brewed ice-tea, shrimp was plump and sizeable with a warm fire to boot! Bravo for the Ginger Man!

The Ginger Man
Responded on 14 January 2021

Osseo, Thank you so much for your feedback and your private note. In almost 30 years in this business I can honestly say that there are only a couple of people that I have worked with that are irreplacable, and Susan is definitely one of them. You can always request her section. If you ever have any questions or issues, please ask for myself. - Stephen

Pre holiday lunch-perfect in every way. Seated in back room by fireplace-best seat in the house! Everyone enjoyed their meal (crab cake sandwich, fish & chips, hamburger). Server super nice and didn’t rush us at all! Covid dining done right - we will be back.

Felt like I waited for a waiter for 30 mins - so wasn’t a fan of the slow service. The food was good but felt overpriced for what we got. Overall- better as a place to go with a large group- but not a cozy date.

Poor customer service. Had a outside reservation and they could accommodate our request. Seated us twice 1) right next the an amplifier of a performer, 2) on a table that the plates would slide off of if we didn't hang onto them. The manager could care less and made minimal effort to try to resolve the issue. Had dinner at a great restaurant a little way down the street.
