Fun atmosphere. Great music from McGraw and McLaughlin. Friendly bartenders. Service was fine. Beer was cold but unfortunately the white wine was served at room temperature. The food was sketchy at best. Had a crock of very good snapper soup, slightly overpriced at $7.00 for the quantity but... read more

Folks - this was pretty poor. It's such a shame that the new owners are not trying to sustain the legacy of this old institution. $12 for a hamburger that was so small and on a bun that looked like it came from the grocery store. It was presented less attractively than if it were at a high school cafeteria.... More

Haven't been to the Chadds Ford Tavern since '92 and my next visit will be much sooner. Great atmosphere for St. Pats. The Guiness was flowing and the Irish Girls were a dancin'. We had appetizers at the bar and the service was great even with a loud fun crowd. Can't wait to go back and the next time may... More

Stopped in for a bite and a drink after a museum tour. Place has a good vibe and lucky for us a great Irish musician was playing. Bartender was very friendly. And finally, lunch was great. Snapper soup was terrific and the sausage sandwich was very tasty. Great tavern.

We went to the Chaddsford Tavern for the first time tonight. The hostess had an attitude and asked if we had a reservation, like we needed one. The restaurant was half empty. We then sat for a half hour to be waited on..... we were ready to keave. The waitress was unaware we were in her section. The 24 dollar... More

My wife and I stopped in to the Chadds Ford Tavern to see Bob Croce sing and to have a drink. We were pleased to see the place looking like we remembered it and many people enjoying themselves. It was like a time machine moment. My wife asked for a shot of Fireball and as the designated driver I asked... More

I recently visited the re-opened restaurant for lunch and actually I was sick later and it was only soup and a salad. This establishment use to be consistant for above average dinner and is probably slowly improving to hopefully become better than I and some others experienced. I am hoping... the eternal optimiist...

I've now been to the Tavern a handful of times for either lunch, dinner or just drinks at the bar. They had some bumps in the beginning but everything seems to be coming together as of late. Service, food and atmosphere are all top notch. I stopped in for lunch with my wife and two kids. Menu is limited but... More

This is a case of "I should have consulted Trip Advisor before visiting this place" We went because someone had mentioned it was a casual place to get a burger. All the negative reviews were spot on with our experience. I'm wondering if we all had the same server. Went on a Friday night around 7pm. Bar was full(live music)... More
