We really enjoyed our dinner here the prime rib was excellent. Nicely paired with a local wine. I found the Yorkshire pudding kind of flavorless, but that was the only thing that wasn't perfect. From cocktails at the bar to desert, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We look forward to dining here again.

This is a great restaurant, but the bar is the best. Local music, great bar food, see friends come and go past the bar. Tables in the bar are first come, but you can get a reservation in the main Restaurant, highly recommended. Wine is pricy.

In addition to perfect vodka martinis, the food and service are superb. Ambience could be improved! Maybe better lighting !

Every time I go to Friar Tuck's I think the food and wine are a little pricey, but I keep going back because it is truly a unique experience. The staff is friendly and the live music is always great.

Chips and salsa is almost as good as mama's. Really a good deal for the portions.. All the posts that talked about the chips, they're true... The chips were delicious as was the meal. They were not stingy with anything; I had extra chips, sour cream, tortillas... And they did not up charge any of it. my cost is on... More
