Our reservations were for 7:15 pm of which we arrived promptly. The hostess stated they... More

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.

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
