Charming Tavern Dining, great menu

Great atmosphere like an historic country tavern. Charming hostess seated us at a high top table near the fireplace and bar area, romantic and cozy. Thanks. Great waiter, cordial and efficient.

I have been to Charlton Tavern about six times now and love the rustic charm of the place. However, every time I have dined at the restaurant there has always been some sort of issue. This time I had asked the server if they had reading glasses since I had forgotten mine. She never got back to me about the... More

This is definitely a cozy, perfect-in-winter sort of place. Which is why I was surprised to find myself ordering a salad on my last visit, and even more surprised at how hearty and wonderful it was. Hubby and I have been trying to reduce/eliminate gluten. This restaurant has very few options for folks like us. Great tavern menu, but heavy... More

Last night's visit to the Charlton Tavern continued a noticed trend that restaurants on busy weekend nights and during quieter week-day visits, can have 2 surprising different exepriences, and the opoosite of expected. Back during the holiday season, two dinners at the Tavern during a busy Friday evening with lines packed at the door, re-established our love for this place.... More

It would be delicious. We have been coming here for years, and feel like it is a second home. The food will never be "the best I ever had" - but it is consistently good and served by a friendly and caring staff. If you come a few times, you will get to know Mike and the staff by first... More

We have been going to the "Tavern" for the past 5 years and have not had a meal. Michael and Sue are terrific owners who go out of their way to make sure that the food is great and the atmosphere warm and upbeat. The specials are unique and always delightful. I would suggest reservations Friday and Saturday nights as... More

I had a good flatbread pizza app and a good burger with a good craft beer. Nothing overly extravagant.

I went with my 95 year old mother for lunch. The food was great and the service was excellent. It was quiet enough that I could talk with my mother. My Turkey Grill sandwich was so good that I took the leftovers home for dinner. I had to have desert, so it was too much for me to eat for... More

There was a time when going to The Charlton Tavern was something to look forward too. A place we would go,to,for special occasions as the dinner specials can be a bit pricey. Our party of six sampled many of the dinner specials and apps. The baked Mac and cheese ball app looked promising in description but lacked in delivery. It... More
