We have been going to the Mad River Tavern for several years now. The food has always been good. The staff is great and professional, and the atmosphere is enjoyable and laid-back. But on Friday evening Jan. 9th we had a bad experience. This was no fault of Mad River Tavern or it's staff. However, a party of 6 or... More

We have always had consistently good meals here - not extraordinary but very good. Love the atmosphere and bar setting. Friday nights are fun as they have music. Price are very reasonable and we have always received great service. Woth a visit for sure!

The staff and the environment is great. A lot of locals hang out there which is really nice. They have upgraded the bar area which is really attractive and comfortable. The menu is extensive, but the food could be better. Minor changes to dishes could make them better. It would make sense to have another chef/professional come in and give... More

The Mad River Tavern has been a reliable stand by in an area where the choices are few. You can rely on a warm atmosphere and decent food. Portions are generous

Nice little restaurant / pub. My wife had a haddock plate, and I a tortellini and chicken dish. Both were good, but mine was supposed to be "spicy" and it was pretty bland. Both were nicely cooked and presented. The waitress was terrific as she was doubling as the bar tender
