“Love the restuarant and the food but--------------”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

I am giving the Piper Tavern four stars because we usually have a great time but whomever does the staffing needs to remember that the hostess is the first person you see when you walk into an establishment and whomever was hosting on Sunday, when we went, did not get the memo that a host/hostess is supposed to welcome you in and make you feel at home. We have been dining there for about fifteen years, always on Sunday during off hours so that there is not much noise and we can get our favorite booth in the pub. Mind you, there was not another person in the pub area and again, it is off hour Sunday. My husband and i are not young and w like the larger table, which has never been a problem before. I am surprised that this hostess, whom i have never seen before, did not pull the chair out from under us when we went to sit down-as this was a booth for four and we were two-and it wasn't just us that received the hostess' disgust-an elderly gentleman came in, one person, and wanted a nice table with a window view-believe me the restaurant was not full, not even close-and she looked at him like he was nuts-didn't want him to have that table because it was for TWO and he was ONE and so on. Needless to say we sat at our booth and the gentleman got his table-but do you really want to fight as soon as you walk into the place??
I would like to say one thing-if it were a business day, happy hour, lunch hour, people in the place, whatever we NEVER would take a larger table if it is just the two of us but seriously, there was NO ONE IN THE BAR AREA and what do you do if a four comes in and you are two?? Well the national nighmare never happened because the only people who came into the bar for the two hours that we were there, sat at the BAR-and they were couples of TWO. I don't think it was what she was asking that has me so mad, it was how she said it-very un-hostess like-not a Hello, welcome, how are you, but confrontation from minute one. I have confrontation all week, i do not need it from the Hostess-seriously
I guess we will call to see who will be greeting us the next time we go and if it is not one of the usually wonderful people that we have come to know and love there:-) we will dine somewhere else.

“Comfey and Inviting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We have gone here often and find the establishment very warm and nice for a relaxing meal. The food is typical roadside inn fare that tends to be heavy and sticks to your ribs. Their turtle soup is quite good and served with a carafe of sherry. The wait staff is great and accommodating.

“Not what it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This was always our favorite restaurant to go to especially for a special occasion. They have changed their menu and most likely their chef. The food leaves a lot to be desired now and doubt that we will return. Pricey but that's fine when the food is exceptional. Disappointed!

“Simply the BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food and drink are excellent and the prices very reasonable. The diversity of the menu makes it hard to make-up your mind as one dish sounds better than the next. Now that's something you usually cannot say about a restaurant with such a tasteful menu. Old world charm with friendly and timely waitstaff. Our go to place when we prefer a tipple with our victuals! CRnDJ
