This is a go to place for my husband and I. It's not like any other place in Sandwich. The dining room is lovely and the tavern makes you feel like you're in a ski lodge in the mountains. Only downsides are they charge a lot for substitutions....vegetables instead of fries was four dollars! And we've gotten take out a... More

Rustic tavern/bar next to elegant dining. Food quality very good to excellent. Historicity free. Just a quick side trip over the bridge.

We came to celebrate two birthdays. we were in the music room, so we really got to enjoy the quiet piano playing in the background. The food and service were both very good but after indicating we were there forbirthdays, I was surprised that there was no candle on the dessert when it came. A minor complaint but most places...

It's a lovely setting eating in the main dining room. The food was very good. I had the lamb. My companion had the duck. Both entrées were very good. We had reservations for 7 o'clock on a Saturday night. We arrived about a half hour early to enjoy a drink at the bar. Just to warn you it is very... More

Once you go into the Dan'l Webster Tavern, if you're like me, you never want to leave. Great appetizers, (the Fried Lobster Sushi was out of this world), and you can't stay without having the Lobster and Lobster, (1/2 Lobster Salad Sandwich, cup of Lobster Bisque-although it was a little thick this time).

Have been here many times and most recently in January 2015. Food was average, service good, atmosphere in pub very warm. Brew tap lines were down, during football playoffs, so that was not good for those who wanted to watch the game in the bar. Have had better meals here, just not this time.

Dear Don C. ~ We are sorry to hear that your experience was less than perfect. It was very disheartening to us having the issues with beer tap that evening; we certainly apologize. We certainly hope you will give us another chance when you are in the area. Sincerely, Gary Cremeans General Manager Submitted by: Kim More
