Great neighborhood find.....

Birch Hill Tavern is nearly in my back yard. I was burned out from the previous restaurant, The Buckingham and was not motivated to try Birch Hill Tavern until recently. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and atmosphere. After having a great lunch of swordfish tacos and a... read more

Well placed pub next to a gourmet grocery store with a menu that sings to a hungry stomach... Nice selection of beer. Service slow. Reuben was served on thick slices of bread that was stale to start and prevented one from actually being able to bite thru the sandwich. The corned beef was definitely home made but it was VERY...

Eating in here seems fun. Take out service was awful I shouldn't have to wait 5 min to be noticed at the end of the bar. Your having me stand for take out next to a couple eating who clearly wasn't happy I was on top of them. Nor was I comfortable being in their space. The waitresses also run... More

My wife and I decided to go this location last night for dinner and each ordered the Turkey Burger which was excellent. In addition we ordered a salad ($8.00) and asked for some balsamic and ranch dressing on the side. While both the dressings were good we were charged an extra .50 for the one dressing. I wonder if I... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the beer menu variety and quality. The food menu is rather limited in comparison but my fish was good and my husband enjoyed the ribs.

We went here for dinner last night. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We ordered beers and from a menu with a lot of good choices. We were surprised when she brought us bottles, we just assumed everything was draft. We asked about it and she said that they didn't have a printed draft list right then and she wasn't... More

If you are looking for a fun watering hole that is an upscale bar and has a relaxed ambience, this is a good place to stop in at. Good food and pleasure workers.

Love the menu at this restaurant - has something for everyone with a slight twist. Service was excellent. Great selection of salads for healthy eating. For living on the edge, the Mac and Cheese is spectacular!!!

This was our first visit and there will be more. The waitstaff was efficient, knowledgable and friendly. The beer list is extensive, but primarily domestic with lots of craft/micro brews. We ordered a plain burger and a Reuben. Both were very nicely done with generous portions. The sweet potato fries were excellent with a fresh flavor and lightly salted. The... More

We were a little overcome by the noise level when we first walked in but it's the happy noise of a local pub! My portobello sandwich and homemade fries were delicious. My husband had their homemade ham and split pea soup. He thought it was the best he'd ever had (except for mine)! My only complaint would have been the... More
