Restaurant could be so much better!!!

The menu was a bit pricey and not a place for kids. My kids were 15 and didn't like anything on the menu so ordered a Chicken Sandwich and a Burger. Both said they were not happy with it. Burger was over cooked to much charbroil flavor and the chicken was under cooked. My husband and I both had... read more

The decor was nice and the service was wonderful. Good menu picks, good presentation. They gave us a nice table in a corner and since there were six of us, we appreciated that. We felt very comfortable with the restaurant and with the staff. Definitely would go there again. Highly recommend.

Stopped in here walking by looking for a place to eat. They do have some craft beers, but are $7 a glass. The menu I thought was lacking most meals above 20$ and not much new englandish food. Service was quick at the bar, I was expecting to see water being named river edge but the view is lacking or... More

The food served may be categorized as upscale bar food. It's tasty and filling, but a bit overpriced. They try and put in a twist with some of their dishes by offering some options that are a bit more exotic, but I think they would be best sticking to the basics and doing that well. Overall good to stop in... More

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 sent them... 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.
