Went there on the recommendation of a colleague. The menu had plen to choose from. Fish tacos, burgers, etc. I got the birch hill burger and it was very good. The test for me is proper doneness with a burger or steak and BHT was spot on. The fries were just right and the onion rings were the right combination... More

My wife and I went the other night, our second visit. We feel the Birch Hill Tavern is better than most of the local Glastonbury fare. Prompt service! Good vegetarian options for her and my fish tacos were fresh and tasty. We will be returning soon.

I love this place! The food is always excellent, there is vegetarian options as well as a good variety of options to share with a group. The beer is always changing, and the enviroment is always friendly and upbeat. Definitely a good place to go for a drink or a meal!

This was recommended by a colleague. The food was good but the service was poor. My wife and I sat with empty beer glasses for quite some time and our server was not familiar with their beer choices. May go back for the food maybe not due to the service.

Went here on a Friday night before a concert. It is a place that is appealing to both families and singles/couples. It wasn't very crowded when we arrived but filled up fast after 5 p.m. The happy hour specials are very limited - mostly a few dollars off on glasses of wine and 2 appetizer specials. We ordered martinis which... More

There are not many restaurants in this area so there may be a wait. It is also not very large. The service is excellent and the food quite good but not great if you are a vegetarian. Be prepared to wait if you go on a Friday or Saturday night. I do recommend this for the quality and freshness of... More
