Love to sit at the bar for dinner as Carl is an amazing bartender. Always feel welcome and enjoy the variety of good food available. Lots to choose from for any mood or palate.

My daughter and I went here for dinner it was excellent, I had the scallops wrapped in bacon appetizer and filet mignon for dinner, my daughter had the scallops and salmon for dinner and was very happy with both. The staff was very friendly they did not rush you and we actually decided to have my fathers 90th birthday party... More

I usually visit this place when I am in CT, food consistent, but today the overall experience was disappointing. Luckily I was in great company so that marked poor service. The waitress was pleasant enough but service was slow and inattentive. Drinks took forever to arrive, then we were told the prosecco was out if stock, they only had small... More

I am so sorry that your dining experience with us was not up to our standards. Being that you have frequented the Tavern before you must have been taken aback by the lack of attention. This will be addressed with the team and we make corrections where they need to happen. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. More

We walked into the restaurant around 7pm on a Saturday night - and we were the only customers. This may have been because it was the 4th of July weekend, but the hotel was pretty filled. Being a bit skeptical, we ordered a glass of wine and an appetizer each. Two of the appetizers we initially ordered, we later found... More

Thank you for the comments as I am extremely disappointed that the property dropped the ball in so many ways during your dining experiences with us. We pride ourselves in the quality of both the food and the service in the tavern and we really fell short. This will be addressed with management team, the wait staff and the kitchen... More

This is not only the best hotel restaurant in the area, but one of the best restaurants in Middletown period, and there have to be 50 just downtown.

The Tavern is part of a larger restaurant in the Inn at Middletown and provides a quiet, intimate setting complete with a fire place. The Tavern menu is more limited than the restaurant menu and fills the need for a lighter and less costly meal. The food is very good and the service is efficient.

We were staying at the inn and decided to stop for dinner. The outside was so pleasant and a nice atmosphere for a glass of wine. I was surprised at how large the appetizers were, maybe too large though very delicious. Really, we just wanted sides besides fries or salad to go with our burger. Both of the appetizers we... More

We joined friends for a leisurely quiet lunch and it couldn't have been any better. A nice pub atmosphere,corner table looking out a window into the courtyard. Maria,our waitress was prompt, friendly & most helpful. We ended up spending three hours eating and catching up in the perfect spot.

Went for a holiday dinner with friends. The atmosphere was nice, but I thought the price was too high for the meals we were served. I wanted to like it more, but will not rush back.
