7 Reasons to Visit The Boardwalk at Granite Park in Plano

The Boardwalk at night

Nestled in the middle of the Granite Park corporate business center sits a 30,000 square foot restaurant park called The Boardwalk. With restaurants of all types, a casual family-friendly atmosphere, entertainment, and an amazing waterfront view, The Boardwalk is the perfect place for a patio brunch date with friends, a fun family dinner, or a late night date spot.

At Granite Park, it all comes together at the Boardwalk.

New at The Boardwalk is Bavette Grill offering modern American fare and features an organic hydroponic garden on the patio, which grows 36 organic herbs, lettuce and vegetables that are used in the dishes. With “patio to plate” Bavette Grill offers an even fresher approach than “farm to table.” Entrée favorites include Bavette steak, short rib steak, Atlanta salmon and the butcher burger.

The Boardwalk at Granite Park is kicking off 2021 by announcing alcohol to-go! That’s right, you can now officially sip and stroll on The Boardwalk while enjoying a beverage from one of the property’s restaurants.

1. Live Music & Entertainment

The Boardwalk at Granite Park recently completed a multi-purpose pavilion providing space for charity and community events, live music and fitness classes. The pavilion is part of an overall effort to foster community and create a walkable and urban neighborhood experience in Granite Park.

2. Biscuits Goodness

Get ready for the YUM factor! The Biscuit Bar is a fast casual restaurant serving up southern goodness on a biscuit. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night, they offer biscuits, tots, and taps. The menu features an assortment of savory and sweet biscuit sandwiches made daily in-house and from scratch. Accompany your glorified biscuit with a side of crispy tots styled to your personal taste and top it all off with a craft cocktail, locally sourced brew, cold brew coffee, or kombucha.

3. Barbecue Pit Stop

A restaurant district in Texas wouldn’t be complete without a darn good BBQ joint. Good thing Good Union BBQ is situated on The Boardwalk! This isn’t your usual checkered tablecloth, smoke-filled hole in the wall. Good Union partners with local vendors and breweries to bring the best ingredients to your table pour amazing craft beer in your glass.

From slow-smoked prime brisket and pork spare ribs to stacker sandwiches and BBQ tacos, you can satisfy all of your BBQ cravings under one roof. Get BBQ by the 1/2 pound, BBQ sandwiches, smokehouse salads, or sides like classic mac & cheese, queso and chips, shoestring fries, or scratch made potato salad. Don’t forget house made banana pudding or a coconut dream cup!

4. Brews

With coffee brews and beer brews, The Boardwalk has you covered from morning to night.

Stop by the new Golden Boy Coffee opening February 8th. Golden Boy Coffee is a Texas-based coffee shop, bar and bakery. Signature drinks include the Honey Bear Latte with local honey and cinnamon and the Golden Latte with cream of coconut and turmeric. Food options range from breakfast tacos and charcuterie boards to assorted baked goods and snack boxes. The space offers free WiFi, a bar and patio seating. A full menu is available here.

Union Bear is a brewery and restaurant concept inspired by a West Coast casual beer approach fused with local roots in North TX. The space is driven by a signature line of craft beers and complemented by an extensive bar offering and menu of approachable, chef-driven plates. Access to the brewers working inside the space and a highly trained staff round out the personalized experience aimed at bringing elevated food & drink pairings.
