I thoroughly enjoyed the bar food and craft beers here. More enjoyable was the small speakeasy on the basement level. Awesome environment!

Great service, good food, great location. Very friendly staff. Plus you can hear each other talk. There were multiple rooms for dining and the bar is way cool. The real fireplace is a plus. Can't go wrong for a snack or dinner here. Large selection of local beers.

A really great evening out. Excellent traditional bar. High quality food. Very friendly and efficient service. Had a great meal. I can recommend the local Green Door lager. Well worth a visit.

Came in to grab a drink mid day. Great beer list and great prices. I love the spin-a-shot. It's a wheel that you can spin for $4 and you get whatever it lands on! shoutout to Noah for always providing great service.

Great small bar with great food in a great community with a ton of historical charm. Highly recommended. Also ask about the secret speak-easy like hidden bar downstairs.

We visited the Green Door Tavern because of a recommendation from a friend. We knew about the speakeasy in the basement. It was really cool. You will have to find the foor on your own (part of the fun). As you enter the speakeasy you are greeted by a host and they ask about your drink preference. It was more... More

Great selection of craft beers, good whisky, a distinct atmosphere, the best bouncer in the city, and a cool speakeasy in the basement. It's not fancy, it's not Michigan ave, but it feels like home which has got to count, right?
