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... read 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

If ever there was a place in Chadds Ford that shined bright continually - it was the Chadds Ford Tavern under the ownership of Tom Drane . When the Tavern recently reopened under the new ownership we all hoped for our Tavern back ......... but surely not the case . After reading all the reviews I now realize Im not... More

My glass of wine was about 2 oz. my husband questioned the waitress and she said "it just looks like that because the glass is so big". Not true. I had the chili. Average, very... More

Let me begin by saying that this is my first review of a restaurant on yelp. I also understand from other reviewers that the tavern is reopened with new ownership. And this was my first visit to the tavern. Atmosphere was excellent,very nicely decorated and comfortable. The tavern fries and flatbread and short ribs were excellent. The quality of the... More

When you keep wanting to order a drink and they won't wait on you, it's difficult. We stopped in for dinner and to listen to the band. Dinner service was tough. Server told us the "bar was slammed" so could she take our food order instead. Our answer was "no, bring me a drink!". We had the Old Fashioned Burger... More

First stop with an out of town friend, last stop EVER again! I've been there before & enjoyed it, this time I should have left after I was handed the filthy menu, but I hung in there for the warm beer & my wife's way under poured glass of wine.

NOTHING good about the place.should have known when we walked in and the menus were filthy to turn around! Warm beer, half a glass of wine to start. Chewy shrimp and soup they tried to pass off as chicken dip for apps. Panzarotti that had so much grease you could smell it! Mushroom soup was terrible! Ladies room out of... More
