Dad & I just got back from dinner @ Turf Tavern. It's been there a long time, and the inside is dated - but I'm not eating the decor :-) We each had a Sunday night special - I had salmon with spinach and rice, Dad had pork tenderloin with spinach and baked potato. They were each $14, and for... More

Always go to the Turf for special occasions. And as usual they didn't disappoint. Love their yearly special "2014". Appetizer, salad, main course and dessert all for $20.14. Staff and owners Tom and Maria are GREAT! Can't wait to go back.

Not only is their food excellent but they also went above a beyond to make sure our event was loved by all. Thank you Turf Tavern for your attention to the things that were important to our group.

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
