“great food...a lot of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We ate at Bowman's Tavern tonight. Excellent mussels, flank steak and seafood stew. Very friendly place, had fun in the bar watching karaoke night. The owner James came over to welcome us to see if everything was okay with our meal.

“Great Find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

I ate at Bowman's Tavern last night and it was such an awesome surprise. The staff is friendly and the place is inviting inside with lovely live music and candles. The food is great. I had a delicious salad with house smoked rainbow trout, candied pecans, fennel, & dried fruit in a maple dijon dressing. It was very delicious. The dessert really blew me away though- a chocolate cherry tart with homemade vanilla ice cream. WOW - this was right up there with pastries I have eaten in France. I liked that it had a real local feel rather than some of the touristy stuff that goes on closer to town. I am excited to bring people here.

“Eggs Bene........what what?!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Stopped in for brunch this past Sunday. As soon as we walked in, there was a gentleman playing the piano and singing "It had to be you". How could this review get better???? Ha. The coffee was robust and piping hot. Yes! I had the Eggs Benedict. I don't order this dish often, because so many people get it wrong. Well thank you Bowman's Tavern for nailing it. Unreal! The little side salad was refreshing and tasty too.

Best brunch in Bucks County.

“It was good before but even better now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

We were frequent patrons at Oddettes (RIP). Followed Bobby Egan to Bowmans. Was good to be back with a similar venue. The hospitality, food and drink were fine. New owners this past year. Entertainment, still great! The food has been ramped up, really good! Evan more reason
to be steady patrons.
