After visiting the town of Westport, CT, we decided to drop in and have a burger. We sat outside on the side porch adjacent to the outside patio up stairs. The views were amazing. The food was ok, not great, but pricey. A burger costs $12.00, which that came with chips and cold slaw. The rest rooms were very small... More

We've eaten at The Tavern several times and have yet to be disappointed. Diverse menu, wonderful specials and outstanding service all make for a great dining experience. Prices are very reasonable. And dining on the patio is just a nice way to spend an evening.

Have had many enjoyable lunch and dinners here but just discovered that they have a brunch menu that is available until 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday. It was perfect for us. My wife ordered one of their Flat Breads covered with bacon, spinach, goat cheese and honey. She loved it. I had had their Breakfast Panini which came with... More

After a couple year's absence I have returned to Tavern a dozen times in recent months and never been disappointed. Somehow the menu continues to evolve slowly with the times, introducing new dishes and lighter salads while keeping the old New England standbys like chowder and oysters. Meantime, the dining room is frozen in another, more comfortable and relaxed era,... More

From the tomato fennel soup to the PEI mussels, smoked brisket and chicken dishes all were delicious. We ate on the patio because we had the dog with us. Very accommodating. I definitely would recommend this restaurant.

I had 'Tavern smoked Salmon' as a meal. It was very good and filling. My daughter ordered 'New England Clam Chowder'. She did not want to eat, so I tried to eat. It was the worst Clam Chowder soup I've ever had. It is not chowder but boiled milk with some clams, vegies and potatoes. She also ordered 'Curried Chicken... More

I was asked if I had ever tried a place called "Tavern on Main" in Westport CT. I said lets go. When you first walk in you pass the bar area. The dining room has a fire place, all wood décor, and an outside dining area. I was their for lunch and we eat outside. The deck has many tables... More

I just had lunch at Tavern on Main. After a 20 year hiatus, a friend suggested we met there since it was central and not so loud that one can't hear themselves think. When you enter, its still vintage Westport but make your way to either the middle dining room or in our case the outside covered deck and it... More

Would never come back here again! The food took a while but the worst part was they brought my husband's dinner out and not mine. They said it was coming right out but it didn't. He waited for mine and his got cold. Finally he just ate. After waiting and waiting I cancelled my dinner because I ate half of... More

3.5 stars, really. Pluses: Interesting menu, very good food, nice view of Main Street from the outdoor patio Minuses: Inaccessible to people with mobility issues, slow service My sister and I came here on a recent Saturday night. We had a reservation for 7:30 and were seated promptly, after we climbed the flight of stairs leading to the entrance. We... More
