I must say I was VERY surprised by this place. My friends had been trying to get me to go for a couple of months now and I always thought, okay dance floor + bar = not my cup of tea. We went early, around 8:30pm on a Friday to dinner, and they didn't seem that busy, but our server just seemed like she didn't want to be there... refills were slow and their sweet tea tasted like it was last made the morning before.. it was Putrid and then I was still charged for it when I asked for it to be taken back. The Tuna tar tar was amazing and so was the lobster bisque. My friends had the blacked chicken wings and they loved them... Their long islands were mostly pre-mix and ice and for the price not worth it/ mind erasers also tiny conpaired to other places and the same price so overall I will say the food and atmosphere won me over, but the service and drinks need some work

good food but mostly the cool kids go here for drinks and to listen to dance music and hit on each other on monday nights and friday nights. fun but trendy yet indie at the same time

Their menu is normal bar food turned elegant. The fish & chips were out of this world! The fried pickles were excellent as well! I've eaten at Graveyard 3 times and each time everything has been immaculate, from the food to the drinks to the darts and pool. I highly recommend it for dinner!

I initially was avoiding this bar because I thought it would be some nasty dirty bar like some other places in the EAV. On the urging of a friend, I went in there and was very surprised. It was very clean and not smoky at all, much unlike I expected it to be. I ordered the Mango Chili wings on suggestion from the server, and man, were they good! The service was a little slow; the server seemed to be bogged down with a table of heavy drinkers, so our non-alcoholic drinks stayed empty for a bit (even though we were eating very spicy wings), but otherwise, it was good. I definitely recommend this place if youre in the village.

The Graveyard is very open & airy inside and is a lot less smoky than most bars. The food looks good, but there's not much for vegetarians so I've only had the sweet potato fries. Darts & pool tables available, outdoor seating for nice days/evenings. Outdoor seating is dog friendly. About the nicest bar restrooms you'll encounter. Newly added trivia on Thursday's that packs the house.

We've been to the Graveyard only for brunch and for Italian Sunday dinner, so I can not comment on the regular menu other than to say it looks delicious. We enjoyed our food both times, and the pasta plates are enormous. We've decided we have to come back with friends and get the family style cannelloni and a carafe of wine. Amusingly enough, I think we were there the same time as grantparkguy. Our server apologized for the nearby drama, but we didn't hear any of the fuss. I can only speak for our visits, but the service was good at lunch and impeccable at dinner, and the place is rather clean for a bar, which is a bonus.

We decided to go to Graveyard Tavern for dinner on a Sunday night. We were given menus for pasta night, but inquired with one of the servers if anything else was available off the menu. He told us that sandwiches were available also. When our waitress came over and we said that we wanted to order off of the sandwich menu, she quickly snipped back at us that sandwiches weren't available because it's pasta night. After much discussion, she took our order. When the food arrived, one of the orders was made with extra items that were not ordered. When the waitress came back to the table, she argued with us about the food order, not admitting her error. A few minutes later the manager came over and would not even let us explain the situation, and promptly asked us to leave. I would not recommend this restaurant.
