We were visiting friends in town and they suggested lunch at the Great American Pub. We found it difficult to find a parking place and ended up walking quite a ways to the pub. We were seated pretty quickly and the service was very good. Table was pretty dark almost wished we had opted for outside. Seats were comfortable however.... More

Sometimes when travelling, all you want to do is try the local food in a place where the locals eat. The Great American Pub was great fun and the food was very nice - as one would expect. packed with locals, we found it pretty good value and worth the visit.

Went here with a coworker. The entire staff is unfriendly including the miserable host. I didn't see one person of the staff smile the two hours we were there. Food was a disappointment. I will not return.

Although I rated the Pub average, it could be called very good. The menu is varied and there are always at leased a dozen specials. Service is usually prompt and portions are decent. Some dishes are a little greasy (reason for average), but there is always something to order.

The Great American Pub in Wayne is a perfect place for a nice, easy, casual meal. I've been here for dinner, lunch and a quick sandwich or salad in the middle of the day and have never been disappointed. The burgers are good, the crab cake sandwich is good, onion soup is rich and cheesy- it's not great cuisine, but... More

In an area where many venues are crowded, noisy, overpriced with pretentious menus, the Pub serves basic American fare in a comfortable atmosphere. The food can be "uneven" but is generally good. Roast beef and roast pork sandwiches are my favorites.

Friendly place with a pricey menu. We expected better food. The menu sounded good. Nothing was great. We had calamari and fried burrata. Both a bit flavorless. The service made up for the mediocre meal but I do not think we would go for dinner I would return for the great beer selection

A group of us went to GAP after work to celebrate one of our coworkers last day at our company..she got another job in her field. We thought we were going for apps and a drink..it turned out to be dinner and quite a few drinks.....the atmosphere was nice, it was crowded and we had a nice time....
