Pretty good food all around. We enjoy the casual atmosphere and good food offered for lunch/dinner. It has a comfortable bar area and tables either near the bar or in a different section. Can accommodate a large crowd as well.

It's a major overhaul of the old Mexican place. So, good in that it's a major upgrade from previous ambiance. It's a little confusing. Is it trying to be a barn? or what? On a Sunday lunch, it wasn't so great sitting inside and having to see a TV everywhere. Tables outside were filled. The waiter was the highlight. Really... More

One word, great! The food and service is great. They also own the Cookhouse in Milford, which is also great.

This place used to be great, however not anymore. We went there on Friday, July 3rd. Service was poor, waitress attitude very poor and the food was not good enough to wait as long as we waited for it to arrive at our table. Mind you, we were there working off a gift certificate given due to bad service, food... More

So this is the 5th or 6th time we've dined here, but this time may have been it. Had dinner on Friday 5/15 and sat at the bar rather than wait the 30 minutes at 7:00pm for a table. Long story short...$72 (incl tax & tip) for 2 beers, a flatbread app, one fish entree and a sandwich. Are we... More

Place way back when was fantastic. Lost its way with ownership change and was close to losing a lot of customers. But this place has seriously rebounded. Service is almost always great - good solid comfort food with some specialty dishes that add flair. Beers are good selection. Definitely worth a trip.

Tavern has proven time and again that's it's a great place for meeting colleagues for happy hour, a post round of golf beer or a quick family dinner out. The menu has something for everyone and utilizes fresh ingredients from local farms when available. Lots of kid-friendly choices, too. The wait staff is accommodating and pleasant and the recently renovated... More

The food is average. The bar area is good for meeting friends. The prices are standard for the area. It is convenient since it is on RT 25.
