We had lunch outside last weekend. Two tables had dogs with them ( NOT Service dogs) . im not even sure if the health dept allows dogs in enclosed outside seating. I could almost live with that. BUT one table brought in a dog cage and it had in it a Mini baby pig. It was making pig grunting noises.... More

I stopped here after hiking. Ordered a veggie sandwich with a really long named beer ( some kind of pale ale) and both were very good. Also, the deck has a beautiful view. All in all it was a very good experience.

Just had the most enjoyable dinner last evening. My husband and I did not have reservations, however, the hostess was able to seat us promptly at a lovely table overlooking the river. Wait staff was extremely courteous and prompt. Our meals were beautifully prepared, served at perfect temperature and in large portions. All menu prices are extremely reasonable!

My girlfriend and I drove over to the GW Tavern from New Milford. Since the weather was nice we elected to eat out on the patio. Coincidently we both chose the beef tips for our main course, not much you can do to ruin beef tips. The service was prompt although their weren't very many people there yet since it... More

Had a late lunch today with my wife and was very pleased. We ate outside and the view of the running water in the creek and a cool breeze made for a wonderful setting. I had an excellent bowl of chili and my wife had crab cakes. Both were excellent choices made with fresh ingredients. We also enjoyed a flight... More

We live 40 minutes away, and come here once or twice a year for special occasions. So far, we always enjoyed it, but not so much this time. The atmosphere is still nice, we sat outside on the porch, overlooking the river. Food was mediocre at best though. I had only a spoonful of my french onion soup, they made... More

i have eaten numerous times over the years while visiting my son at a school located nearby. It is located in a beautiful setting next to a stream. The decor is rustic with early American decor. I have never been disappointed eating here. The menu is continental with food that is hearty. They have a large selection for vegetarians and... More

We were fortunate to dine out here last night with friends. We were also fortunate that the waitress found us a table out on the small porch area overlooking the river...just perfect. All the employees were very pleasant, helpful, knowledgeable & genuinely willing to help. Despite being a busy Sat evening they were always checking to ensure we were OK.... More
