Grand Ferry Tavern Restaurant Review

: This cozy Williamsburg tavern, located just steps from the East River, has a heavy seafood accent, serving up towers of raw oysters and ample amounts of just-pulled-from-the-sea goodness. Settle in with a cocktail, such as the potent Old Fashioned, and peruse the menu. Fried clams or blue cheese fondue make for a great start, before moving on to the grass-fed rib-eye, the comforting wild mushroom potpie or the very satisfying sandwich with deep-fried oysters. Dessert isn’t much here, so sit back and order another bourbon-based cocktail. In warm weather months, grab a table in the leafy back garden.
