My husband and I joined friends to dine at DeWolf Tavern for dinner when we were in town for a short visit. We are both big foodies and it was very difficult to make a decision on what we'd have for the evening, so we went big and chose a number of dishes to sample - and when I mean... More

I frequent DeWolf Tavern. Whether it is drinks after work with coworkers, dinner with friends, or date night with my husband, it is always a great time. There is no other place in the East Bay with the atmosphere of DeWolf Tavern. I love the bar area - the wine list is extensive and the appetizers are yummy. I constantly... More

My husband and I dine at DeWolf frequently and have never been disappointed. Chef Sai's menu is perfectly created each season; the service is always top notch; and their wine selection is superb! I've tried quite a few items on the menu but the Seafood Stew is perfection every time! I've also attend quite a few events here and they... More

I tried this place a year or so ago with my fiance and we're not impressed at all with the food or service both were not good at all. Last month my sister was in town and we decided to try their breakfast. We were seated outside with no menus or silverware. We waited for 10 minutes and still no... More

DeWolf Tavern is one of my favorite places in Rhode Island's East Bay. I admire Sai Viswanath (chef) and his hardworking staff. They have a passion for what they do, and it shows. Below are a few things that I learned and would like to share... • June 15th (Father's Day): DeWolf Tavern hosted their 1st Annual Oyster Festival. They... More

Yes I do. For those of us who delight in unique culinary experiences and are not afraid to try something new have found an oasis at Dewolf tavern in Bristol. The elegant culinary fusion that Chef Sai has so masterfully created provides you with an experience that satisfies the palate and satiates the appetite. I HIGHLY recommend a sunset dinner.... More

The good: Beautiful waterfront location, lovely outdoor seating right on the water available. Inside is beautiful as well with cozy, updated furnishings, wood and a fireplace. Mashed potatoes are made with real potatoes, not instant. The bad: I can get Indian food anywhere. I certainly do not want Tandoori spices on my lobster! A substantial number of Indian spiced items... More

Terrible service and long wait for food. One person sent back her food and refused to order something else before it took to long for the first order to be served. My lobster salad sandwich only had about a tablespoon of lobster, and I doubt if it was lobster, because it was so tough to chew. Will go to the... More

I love the bar at DeWolf Tavern! Great atmosphere and vibe. I offer meet froends for a drink eat at the bar. Mondays are oyster nights with oysters at $1 and a huge assortment available to choose from. Food is good and appropriately priced for the quality. I recommend it to all.
