Hadn't been in a while but figured we'd give it a try when we were in the area recently. Should have gone to Jillian's which is just down the road. While our new server did her best, the ineptitude of the kitchen and the attitude of the bar staff made her job virtually impossible to perform. Wasn't the server's fault... More

We were in the area for the first time and were looking for a quick bite to eat. The food was fabulous, but we spotted spider webs over the table next to us; they looked as if they had been there for quite some time, as they were very large. The staff wasn't too friendly either. If you don't mind... More

I started going here with my kids on Wednesdays for buffalo wings but it can get fairly hectic then. I prefer to go on other nights. They have a smoker and do great barbecue. Prices are reasonable and the food is very good. Try the barbecue chicken breast sandwich.

The Oak Hill is a neighborhood tavern and restaurant with excellent friendly service. I have eaten there several times a week over the past year. I never miss the Wedsday night chicken wings. The Saturday prime rib is as good as I have had at many top notch steak houses. It's an excellent value. Bob B

The sign on the front door has a warning about extreme peanut dust, so those with allergies should stop reading here! This is one of the oldest taverns around, with wide plank floors. You're free to help yourself to a basket of shell-on peanuts or popcorn. I ordered the BBQ chicken sandwich, without bacon. It was tasty! Most interesting thing... More

My wife and I wanted a steak meal. We are tired of chain restaurants that over season meet or modern cuisine that likes to put sauces on steak. Oak Hill Tavern has a great feel, a restaurant/pub version of a friendly diner. We really enjoyed our meals. I got the Saturday special prime rib. Unbelievable value. Best prime rib in... More

My husband and I have been eating here twice a week for many years. I have even hired their catering service for large events. last night was the last straw! The owner (now refereed to as TO) got into a beef with the Budweiser distributor so no more bud. Both of us drink Bud so we have been disappointed. We... More

This is not an outstanding restaurant; however, if you are looking for a casual dining experience and good pub food and drinks this is a great place to go! I live in the area and have been here several times. The prices are great, especially for New England! The onion rings are delicious, I highly recommend paying the extra for... More

It's a real locals place with free popcorn and peanuts. Food is inexpensive and decent. I'd say good value. Can be a fun place. We went last night and didn't left. Our "server" was too busy clearing tables, talking with co-workers, and generally seemed to be purposely ignoring us. After 10+ minutes with no one even taking a drink order... More
