Gaston's Tavern..Strange menu

Hello,

Why does Gaston's Tavern have such a small, strange limited menu?

A pork shank and a cinnamon roll is what I'm getting. That and LeFreou's Brew, LOL.

Are there plans to expand the menu?

It is small so they can't fit a bigger menu. Not enough places to sit for that.

Finally tried it last weekend. I got vegetables with dip. Lots of people were getting the yellow drink. I'm not at all a cheap guy but for $10 or so it better be good. As in full of rum.

You can get the brew for around $4 without the keepsake mug. But yes, it is a strange menu.

It is a bizarre combination, isn't it? It's more like a heavily-themed snack cart than what I would expect of a quick service location.

Melissa I like your explanation. Yes it is more like a snack cart. I think people are thinking it's a CS and it isn't. My kids (adults) had the brew and the hummus as a snack. They didn't think it was anything special. I tried the brew and didn't like it, too sweet. Wouldn't go out of my way for it. Just my 2 cents.

Enjoy The Magic!!

I actually like the menu.

I don't really like MSB (too long lines for food I really never liked) and at Gaston's I can get a pork shank in the morning (don't like anything sweet in the morning and not a fan of eggs) and the rest of my group get the sweets they enjoy... win/win for me

It's more of a snack shop than a full restaurant. It's not large enough to take crowds looking to eat a full meal.

You can use a CS credit there for a pork shank, drink and dessert.

I love the unique snacks they have there. The veggies and dip, the apples and Carmel dip, and the hummus. Plus Lefou's Brew is AMAZING!!!! It's my favorite!!!!

It's kind of a weird menu. I'd rather go to Pinocchio's.

It definitely is more of a snack cart thing, the hummus and crackers, veggies, fruit cups, are all pretty good, and I absolutely love the Lefou's Brew! No appeal to the shank at all, but it's more of a themed place, so you can really be immersed into the experience of it all. That, and I mean, BOG is a CS during the lunch hours anyways, so that would be a lot of BatB restaurants in one place?
