Good food next to the sea

We stayed at the Bristol Harbor Inn and had dinner at DeWolf Tavern. The tavern is friendly, welcoming and cosy. The menu provided plenty of options and variety. The meal and service were both very good.

My son graduated from Roger Williams University yesterday. Dinner after a graduation is supposed to be the hilight of the day with your family. The reservations were made in January to assure we could enjoy our celebration at this specific restaurant. After waiting for our table for 11 we were given pre-set graduation menu with a set price of $50.... More

My first time in Bristol and I haphazardly choose a great restaurant. I was in town for only 3 days and ate 4 meals at DeWolf Tavern. The bartenders and waitstaff were extremely friendly and accommodating as well as the owners, who I ate one of my meals with. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant as well as the town....

My mother treated my husband, daughter and myself to dinner at DeWolf Tavern in early April. We were all very impressed with the food. In particular the seafood chowder was a big hit. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting. We can't wait to return.
