We enjoyed the wonderful sandwiches and attentive service on the porch of this Concord landmark. The servings are more than generous, and we wound up taking enough home for another lunch. The setting is very interesting, pretty much in the center of things in the middle of Concord and within easy walking distance of interesting shopping. The only drawback is... More

Everyone who travels through Concord Massachusettes, and I mean everyone, should stop to at least take a photograph of the lovely Colonial Inn on the square in the historic district. Food at the Colonial Inn is wonderful, beautifully prepared, friendly service and table settings are exquisite. You just have to see Colonial Inn and experience the ambiance, realizing it's part...

I don't usually write reviews, but our experience here was so awful that I wanted to warn others. We originally wanted to have high tea at the Taj in Boston, but thought the family we were staying with might want to join us, so we waited too long to make reservations. We really liked Concord last time we visited, so... More

I've passed The Colonial a hundred times over the past couple of years, I'm certain, and I've mentioned on several occasions that I'd like to eat there "just because." Well, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, after strolling through the antiques shops, I found myself ready for a lunch and ready to give The Liberty at the Colonial a shot. Our... More

Atmosphere on a perfect summer night was great. Very friendly staff and good service. But food was a D. (We didn't say anything, we never do.) How can a 'pub' serve mediocre to bad fries? My daughter had the special Grilled Cheese - Provolone with prosciutto and tomatoes. It had almost no cheese- one slice- and the prosciutto was just... More

Let me say that the waiter spilled ketchup on my sons pants and I still gave this 5 stars. It was an easy accident and he went out of his way to make it right and all is forgiven. The food was great- I had the chowder, salad and beef wrap and it was all amazing. Also the view on... More

The Colonial Inn is just down the street from the Old North Bridge and The Old Manse. It's filled with its own history, and is located at the rotary in the center of Concord. We would have loved to sit out on the front porch for our lunch, but the porch was full. The inside of the restaurant probably still... More

This bar located in an historic building in colonial Concord, MA is dark and romantic with a cozy gas fireplace. Lots of beer choices including craft beers. Pub food and light bites available. Nice bartenders too. You can move on to have dinner in a variety of dining areas but we did not do that ourselves. Located in the heart... More

The decor is fine. It attracts the tourists as its location is right smack in the center of town or seems to be. But the service personnel to include the manager on down to the busboys seem to delight in ignoring the customers. For example I was served a salad that consisted of basically lettuce leaves and managed to get... More

This is my husband and my favorite place to eat in Concord. We've never eaten in the dining room but prefer to enjoy a nice cold beer, chowder and other house specialties in the little bar. Always an entertaining crowd, great service and good New England fare!!
