Just returned from another great dinner. Food was excellent and reasonably priced plus the service was perfect. Are there fancier restaurants? Yes there are, can you pay a lot more and get the same quality? Yes you can. I suspect there are some who nitpick every detail of a dining experience but if you want to go out to have... More

I recently stopped at the Turf Tavern with 9 friends and family on the way back from the track. I was so pleased with my steak that I sampled 4 other meals and all were excellent. I asked to speak with the chef and hostess Tom & Maria Gallant. Even though the restaurant was busy they spent a few minutes... More

She explained the free wine Wednesday and most of us took advantage of this. I had the lobster mac and cheese. It was wonderful. They were accomidating in the... More

Thought this would be a nice place to take my mother, but that was the worse decision ever. They sat my mother in the corner of the room, literally. I had to move each time my mother left the table to go to the brunch buffet due to the over crowding of the room, despite the required reservations. The food... More

This was our first visit to Turf Tavern and were very impressed with both the food and the exceptional service. We arrived at 7:30 on a week night and were immediately seated in the dining room. There are linen tablecloths and a romantic atmosphere. We had a 15% or 20% off coupon, based on our total charge. Our waitress was... More

Scotia is a bit of a drive for us but we manage to pay a visit to this restaurant a couple times per year. It remains consistant in quality, portion size and good pricing. My crab cake appetizer was delicious as was my wife's potato soap. Salads were fresh with a tasty blue cheese dressing. The seafood fra diavlo I... More

The Turf Tavern has been a Scotia staple for years. The food, especially the Shrimp Nicole appetizer and the filet mignon are always wonderful and cooked to perfection! The portions are more than adequate and the timing between courses never feels rushed. They also have a $20.14 menu with a nice choice of appetizers, entrees and desserts if you're very... More

After receiving a $10 off coupon, my wife and I tried the Turf Tavern for dinner on my birthday. We were seated immediately, and the waitress quickly took our drink order, while we mulled appetizers and dinners. I had the French onion soup, which was excellent, with a healthy portion and good cheese. My wife opted for crab stuffed portobello,... More
