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.

I've never had a bad meal or cocktail here! I just wish they had some more traditional breakfast options.

The Tavern at the Armory has good food and good service in an attractive setting. Their beer is always fresh and cold, and they seem to keep their taps clean -- which is a real plus in Connecticut where a lot of places just don't understand the importance of a weekly flush. The chef is creative and I have never... More

I've been here at the tavern for Valentine's Day dinner, have attended functions and held functions there - not a missed note ever. Staff is very accommodating, the food is uniformly good, and the setting is just classy enough without being stuffy.

We recently celebrated our anniversary at the Tavern and enjoyed our dinners very much. We always do. There was a wide variety of selections -- it was hard to choose so we'll have to go back!

I love a good breakfast place! One of the downtown shop owners recommended we try the breakfast here. We tried the breakfast this past weekend and were highly impressed; this will be very tough competition for our other breakfast favorites in town. Oh, the difficult choices we are forced to make! My husband ordered the carrot muffin batter waffle and... More

A wide menu with something for everyone. I ate here often and never been disappointed. I thoroughly recommend the Chowder, Chill or Five onion soup for a starter. The mains are more than ample. There's a smaller bar menu and usually a good selection of ales

Quaint small place (rsvps recommended) with small bar attached behind seating. Only about 10 tables or so. Service was good since its so intimate but they changed their menu last month. We were so excited to get entrees we read online and disappointed to see the listing of new entrees that are kind of expensive and not what we're looking... More
