Founded on History

Green Dragon is a reimagined historic restaurant experience and museum inspired by the 18th century Green Dragon Tavern in Boston, where meetings leading to the American Revolution took place. This is where Paul Revere is rumored to have started his historic ride to warn of the British invasion of Lexington and Concord.

When we recreated this historic tavern, we wanted to give our guests the atmosphere of colonial America that most Americans have never experienced. Back in the day, taverns were a place where people from all walks of life could come together and discuss pressing issues surrounding politics, religion, and the future of our country, knowing that they won’t be judged and could speak freely about their opinions.

The tavern was always at the center of the community, and today, we want to recreate this classic tavern feel. We want to be a place where all people are welcome to stop by and discuss their opinions with no judgement in an inclusive setting, just like it was done during the formation of our great country.

Great friendly service! Food is also very good – went twice during our stay in Carlsbad! Enjoyed our time and enjoyed the historic records they have on the revolutionary war!

Our family had the best time here and the food at the tavern is outstanding. Extremely friendly service, quality culinary experience and a truly unique setting makes you learn about our country’s founding. Can’t recommend highly enough

A classy spot. It has that colonial feel to it. They have impressive house cocktails. The only food I’ve had here was the New England clam chowder and it’s to die for. One look at the menu though and you’ll see a pretty solid food selection to choose from.
