So disappointed

We have eaten at the Tavern before and really liked it. However, recently four of us dined and did not have such a good experience. We stared with two fish chowders that were outstanding and we sent kudos to the chef. Two of us ordered crab cakes for our meal and they were not good at all. We... read more

First time experience. Pleasantly surprised. Nice reception, generous cocktails, respectable wine list, extensive regular and special menu. Very attentive staff, reasonable prices and friendly atmosphere.

Ordered 2 burgers and for the 2nd time in a row they were badly overlooked. The waitress never came back to check on our order nor did she come back for our check. A manager finally showed up after we were done to drop off the bill, they did not charge us for the burgers, which we appreciated. Service and... More

I've been here a few times, and each time the food was lackluster. Service was good, but the food was greasy and awkward, much of it tasted frozen.

Took my 9 year old son here for dinner. I had lots of options, but he had difficulty finding things he liked. We ended up sending back their "pizza", which was french bread slathered with sauce and burnt cheese. However, my prime rib was spectacular. My son ended up enjoying 2 shrimp cocktails of delicious, enormous prawns. Really better for... More

Heading to our summer home, we stopped in Exeter for a quick bite before continuing on. Found the Tavern listed on the GPS & decided to take a chance. It's not your usual tavern. Very warn and charming. The food was several cuts above typical tavern food, excellent service, & good prices. We'll be back

I came here looking for some good after a hockey game and got the best Caesar salad I have ever had, the stake tips on my salad were cooked to perfection and the portions were huge, you definitely get your money's worth. I recommend trying it out!!
