Came here with some friends on a saturday morning and sat at the bar. I got a bloody mary (fabulous) And my friends got two beers and a mimosa. They got tavern breakfasts which looked really good and i got the duck benedict. I like that they have many choices on the breakfast menu. It has something for everyone. Worth... More

The DeWolf drips history, as it's located in one of the oldest buildings in Bristol. Exposed fieldstone walls, ceiling beams, candlelight all add to the charm and comfortable ambiance. We were attracted by the fact that the chef is Indian and brings some of that sensibility to many of the dishes we had, which included mussels and flatbread pizzas. The... More

My wife and I were in Jim G's party and his review is very accurate. Unless there is a change in ownership we will not be returning. What once was a great place no longer exists.

Six of us were visiting Portsmouth , R.I. on the weekend of July 19 2014. As we had been to DeWolf Tavern previously with good food and service we made a reservation for Sat. The 19th. What an absolute mistake ! A totally ruined evening. Appetizers and drinks were fine. We ordered entrees and thats when the problems began. Enjoying... More

We stopped in for drinks. The bartender (random college student) on duty was bratty and churlish at best – downright rude is my personal opinion. I would expect a place like DeWolf’s to staff their bar with an experience bar person who could make drinks both on and off the menu with less attitude and better style. Poorly disappointed in...

My wife and I brought our daughter and her fiancé here lately for Sunday breakfast/brunch and frankly we were disappointed. I have been here for dinner once or twice and enjoyed it - it should be excellent at these prices! The coffee choices sounded delicious so we all ordered different kinds; I ordered the Sumatra. It was French press only... More

I have been enjoying the food at the DeWolf Tavern for years. Most recently, my husband and I devoured $1 oysters at the bar and then ate dinner upstairs. He loved the seafood stew. The tandoori lamb chops I ordered were absolutely delicious. A wonderful place!

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
