Other Woman is a casual pub with high quality food

Food was very good. We got the preserved lemon ceasar (loved the cornbread croutons!), house salad, (two!) orders of mac and cheese (nice breadcrumb crust and not super cheesy), meatloaf (average), and hot wings. I recommend the buffalo wings, not the garlic wings, which didn't taste as good as... read more

We enjoyed a great night out of delicious pub fare at "The Other Woman" portion of the restaurant. The food is fresh and bright, well seasoned and cooked to order. We enjoyed the atmosphere as well.

& their beer on tap is always good. A noisy family place that is very welcoming, my husband and I like to eat at the bar and pretend we're locals.

This resteraunt was recommended to us by a couple of people. They had music Friday night so it sounded like fun. Both our entrees were greasy and almost inedible. I had turkey Parmesan and my husband had the Cajun popcorn (crawfish tales).Some people had salads that looked good...wish I ordered one of those. It was a good spot to get... More

It was packed when we arrived but we found a spot in the tavern upstairs at the bar. The bartenders and staff were very friendly and social! They had a great tap beer selection and their food was amazing! I just had the chicken Caesar salad but you could tell it was made fresh and very tasty! Awesome spot! Would... More

Had a great dinner with the family after a day of skiing. Service was quick and friendly; prices reasonable. Atmosphere was great - definitely a place I'd return to many times - comfortable for all ages. Menu had a great variety and since they had gluten free rolls for burgers I had one and it was delicious. The kids macaroni... More

Went with my husband to The Perfect Wife to celebrate my birthday! As always, the service was excellent -- without hovering -- the food was yummy. The menu had recently been changed & I was disappointed that my favorite item (filet mignon) was no longer there. When I mentioned this to the server, she said she would check with Chef... More

After a day of skiing we had some drinks here and it was very nice. The service was great and the drinks as well. The appetizers were also very good.

Ate here this past summer and loved it. I had quinoa balls that were fabulous and they even told me how they made them so I could make them at home. We ate outside under the pergola with a view of the garden and then went into the bar to listen to great music. Fun place, great food! Will go... More

Very nice overall dining experience from food to staff. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. Bread pudding, one of the best I have ever had. While they except families, and there were a few there (us included), families better off upstairs (Tavern). Either way get in early or make a reservation during ski season. You will not be disappointed.
