Great outdoor patio

Loved the atmosphere outdoors on the patio with the lighting at night. The staff was very friendly and attentive. All of my family thoroughly enjoyed their meals- cod & burgers. My meal (quinoa salad with steak) was late and came out unfinished, and I wasn't that impressed with it. I would come... read more

We are a year into our U.S. assignment and love nearly everything about being out here. However finding a proper pub is still like trying to find a hens tooth! This isn't a proper pub, but it has a bit of character, serves a nice range of food and is nicely set back from the street. A safe choice to... More

We had dinner here on a recent trip ... Recommended as a "locals" place by our bellman. It was fantastic ... Small, old, quaint, casual ... We were likely the only tourists in the place. Would be equally good for a "date" Dinner as a family meal. Amazing food and service on Main Street in lovely Westport.

We went for a friend's birthday dinner. The atmosphere was great. Our waiter never brought out my appatizers. My friend was waiting for her drink for 30 minutes and finally got it after asking 3 times. My ribeye was very well done even though I ordered it medium. I wasn't impressed. Probably won't go back.

Our true 'go to' place in Westport. Wonderfully friendly and attentive service. Great drinks and delicious food. It's a true classic old-school tavern. Sit in bar area or outside on patio for best atmosphere!

Really fun historical setting from the 1800's. A lot of the old charm including fire places and wooden floors. Sunday brunch had excellent food choices. I went for the breakfast panini. It kept me full for hours. Waitstaff was attentive. We sat on the patio which was covered from the sun, but still had a garden/outdoor feel. Sitting above Main... More

This was are first time to Tavern on Main and we had a great lunch. The food was exceptional and the bartender was very attentive to our needs. The place is decorated like an old fashioned tavern but with some modern décor added to it. It's a place we would like to try in the winter because we were told... More

Long a fan of historic dining sites, we tried the Tavern on Main. The service was good. The food was also fine. The Happy Hour specials only apply to the Bar which we did not find out till after we had been seated and ordered. The prices were a tad steep but in keeping with the atmosphere. Having some historic... More

As you would expect from a tavern, this establishment features a fine selection of beer on tap. The ambiance of the restaurant is delightful, our server was knowledgeable about all menu items and helped us make our selections. The spicy tuna tartar appetizer was amazing, our main dishes (strip steak and Atlantic cod) were delicious. But the highlight was the... More
