Have had many business lunches here and have also enjoyed dinner. Great old New England building of a style that is normally found more readily in Litchfield, Newport, et al. Wait staff has great sense of humor and are fast and professional. Granted you will encounter stuffy, full of themselves a-holes here but taken as part of the atmosphere can... More

Three different environments to choose from outside, main dining room or bar. Whichever your selection you'll be pleased. Very reasonably priced. Go enjoy their Sunday Brunch but arrive early.

It's hard to find a good restaurant that's open on a Sunday night during a holiday weekend, and this is a great pick. We got to sit out on the lovely patio. The food is very good-I had the quinoa salad with blackened chicken and it was delicious. Lots of gluten-free options marked clearly on the menu (I appreciate that!)... More

Had a fair calamari for lunch,the CB salads were excellent and the burger was good. Place was sorely understaffed .the waiters tried hard and moved like Olympic runners.service was ragged because of staffing problems . He did earn his 20% tip just for being overworked. Management should do abetted job in staffing and anticipate these problems so I can say... More

When looking for a straightforward choice in Westport we often choose Tavern on Main becaue it has a menu with good variety. While it is not spectacular or outstanding in any way, it always delivers. In summer you have a choice of being seated outside on a balcony. In winter you can sit by the fire. I have often suggested... More

Absolutely delicious Sauvignon Blanc recommended by the waitress but I've forgotten the name. I'm going to re visit just to find out! I had salmon on sweet potato blinis which is more of a starter size than a light bite but beautifully done. My husband had the grilled cheese which he said was "ok but not brilliant" however the food... More

The food was good, although overpriced... service was OK... Not the best place we ate at in the area, but a pleasant environment... We just found the overall experience to be "OK" which surprised us given the reviews...

I chose this place based on reviews and the menu and I was very pleased. We sat outside on a quaint patio overlooking the street and watched a staff member tending to a duck in the bushes who was sitting on its nest. He brought it water which was very sweet and I hope everything turned out ok. I love... More
