We have had lunch and dinner several time at the Fife 'n Drum. The food and service is always very good. Prices are reasonable. Sometimes on weekends they have music entertainment in the evening and it is always excellent.

Very nice restaurant with very attentive staff. The steak was cooked perfect and the desserts were outstanding. The owner played the piano while we were there, he's 97 I think and he was great. The prices were higher here but not astronomical.

Standard tavern fare on the menu, but it was the specials board that got our attention. I enjoyed the special butternut squash ravioli with apples, spinach, and pumpkin seed brown butter sauce. My husband went for the messy but tasty pub cheddar burger. We shared...More

Came in after dropping our son at school. I ordered the lamb chops which I would order again. The food was great plus the ambiance was fantastic. I also want to point out the staff was exceptional including the owner. Thank you so much.
