Lots of beers and limited, but very good menu...

Very casual, food is prepared very well. Menu is a bit thin, but the food is good. Not a good place for vegetarians. It can get very noisy. Overall a very nice place to hang.

This is a cool place. It's a 'seat yourself' so be prepared to walk in and look around for an empty table. They have a lot of beer, which is to be expected from a tavern. The menu installs small, and sort of expensive. I ordered the half chicken with summer squash. It was really good. The captain and coke... More

We got in late from the airport and wanted to find dinner. The hotel clerk directed us here. We ate outside because it was a bit noisy inside. The service and the food were very good. Great mac n cheese and kobe burger! Very nice looking place too!

So glad we tried this unique place! The atmosphere is fun and friendly and the food matches the place perfectly. We sat at the bar and were greeted immediately by the bartender who was very helpful with the large beer selection. We had the most amazing sliders with a delicious dipping sauce. He helped us navigate the wing options and... More

I heard mixed things from friends, but finally stopped in around 6pm on Saturday. Went with adult daughter for a quick casual bite. It wasn't busy at first but by 6:30pm the place was full... About 4-5 outside tables, but it was chilly this June night. Small food menu; we ordered kobe burger and mussels. Loved the presentation of the... More

This is our go-to place when in the Bedford, NH area and want something casual. If possible, we sit at the bar and get the Kobe beef sliders and beer. They have a great selection of draft and bottled artisan beer. The sliders are the best we've had. Really simple with carmelized onions and a side of some aioli "secret... More

Want a ton of beer to choose from and amazing food? Come here! My only 2 "complaints": VERY small menu and limited seating (unless it's nice weather then they have outdoor seating). There aren't many tables and unless you make reservations for a party, you can be waiting a bit for a table. Luckily, there is a decent size bar... More

There are literally hundreds of micro-brew pubs in the Manchester area, but only one where the food is good enough to make Bobby Flay do a double take: River Road Tavern. With frequent tap takeovers by epic local breweries, awesome staff, and my favorite with wings in NH - this is an afternoon favorite for lunch. The game is always... More
