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....

Sidewalk tables on a sunny day, good menu selections, fun place! Excellent place to take grandkids for a burger and fries, or BBQ Ribs, or crabcake sandwich which is my favorite.

We eat here infrequently as it gets very crowded, but the food is fine. Generally the sandwiches are good as are the drinks. Service is usually good.

Classic bar with decent food. Stick to the burgers and sandwiches. Cozy in the winter and great for outdoor chilling and people watching during warm weather. A nice change from the national chains.

There for a business meeting on a recent weeknight. The server was very good. She did not interupt too often but always seemed to be around when needed. The food is decent. One thing definitely missing is a good beer selection. With all the excelent local craft beers available, I expected much more than the handful of national beers offered.

Thank Al M
