Not only does the interior reflect its original early 19th origin, but there was a quiet and leisurely pace to the evening that fostered conversation, a rarity in our fast-paced techno world. The food was excellent as well--perfect portion... More

This was my first time at DeWolfe's Tavern in Bristol, RI and I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting to go to a restaurant with the usual offerings of meat, fish, poultry, and pasta - boring, as the same old same old. The menu offers quite a variety of the above but with quite a twist in the use of... More

Went here with another couple and used a Groupon. Was expecting a lesser service because of the Groupon but was very surprised with excellent service. Even though the menue was limited for the Groupon special the 3 choices were injoyed by all of us. Every thing tasted fresh and was presented like a 5 star dish. We never felt rushed... More

Friends from India went with me. We were looking for veg dishes and we found them here. Delicious. Loved things like the naan pizza.

The atmosphere at DeWolf's was amazing. We were seated at a waterview table and it was so picturesque. The service was outstanding. The menu had various delicious items from seafood to chicken and beef. Our meal was delicious. We will definitely be returning.

I finally went to ask if we had a waitress. She sent a bartender to take our drink order which came right away. I asked for olives with my drink... More
