Great value lunch...

While I have been to the Old Post Tavern many times in the past, I recently went there for lunch and found the lunch menu both cost effective and the food to be very good. Finding a Lobster Salad sandwich at $14 with a side of salad was a big surprise and it was quite tasty as well!

The Old Post Tavern in Fairfield, is a great place for a romantic dinner for two or a festive group at the bar. The food is excellent with many choices. Lunch is also a great option if you are in down town Fairfield. The only draw back is parking can be a hassle, there is no designated parking area.

Had a romantic dinner here on New Years eve and it was excellent as well as the service. We received plenty "on the house" specials and more. We have now added this restaurant to our awesome list.

The service here is wonderful! I come for happy hour a few times a month (can't beat the prices, and they do happy hour 7 days a week) with friends. There is one bartender in particular that we have almost every time (older, taller, thin man) who is so nice. He is very friendly & knowledgeable of his bar, drinks,... More

Had lunch there today. It was excellent. Had the mussels in a spicy marinara sauce. Yum. Good service, very friendly. Would go back.

Gotta say we kinda had higher hopes. In fairness the service was quite good (at least until time to check out). We ordered New England clam chowder, steak tips and pasta primavera. I would order the pasta again as it really was quite good. The New England chowder would have been sent back if I had ordered it as it... More

This place has it all...I've never heard a bad thing about anything on the menu (I love their rigatoni dish!). Service is quick and very pleasant, with honest opinions when asking for suggestions. The restaurant is conveniently located in the heart of Fairfield on the Post Road.In warmer weather it's a treat to be able to sit outside and enjoy... More

I went to the OPT twice this past week. The first was on Tuesday, when I had luncheon with ten women. Everyone loved what they had; mine was the steak sandwich with a salad accompaniment. I enjoyed it so much that after raving about it to my husband, he insisted we go there Friday evening. We were not disappointed. We... More

For the cost, didn't really get adequate portions. I got the lobster cucumber rolls (tiny and all you could taste was the cucumber) and the Lobster ravioli (very good but only a few pieces). Probably won't go back. Nice ambiance.
