It's one of those places we would really miss if it were gone. So let's make sure we keep it! The tavern is the only place that retains some of the spirit that has been lost to the many chain stores on Westport's Main Street. It is a cozy restaurant with a fireplace and for summer times both a gorgeous... More

You can count on Tavern on Main for comfy, cozy food and atmosphere. It always delivers. The bar is inviting and the restaurant is lovely especially during the winter when the fire is roaring. Tavern on Main consistently delivers a satisfying experience. We will return!

Stopped in on a whim on a cold January Saturday. Loved the ambiance, the working fireplaces, the charming low ceilings...felt like we were stepping back in time. The food was fine ( can't rave about it) but, all in all, a very pleasant experience!

My friends and I have gone here for brunch every Dec for the past several years. This year the service was poor and the food had no flavor. Our waitress did not bring requested drinks. She basically abandoned us. The grilled cheese had no flavor and barely any bacon. Salads were bland. Expensive and not worth it. Not going back.

We have been a few times. We have had fish, sandwiches, burgers and apps. Good drinks with a rotating list of beer. Everything has always been fresh and well prepared. The service is pleasant albeit a bit slow. Prices are fair. Great local spot that flies under the radar.

Probably been here 30 times for lunch and dinner. Never had a bad experience. sometimes parking is tough but I usually find something close if it is. I've tried everything from seafood to sandwiches and it has all been very good as has the service. Very reliable place. Definitely recommend!

I really wanted to like this place, but alas, it is not great. We went for dinner (other times may be better), but the food was fair to poor (worst lobster roll in history), and the service was TERRIBLE even when the house was half full. The bar was packed, so maybe the drinks were better, but there is MUCH... More

Visiting Westport CONNECTICUT USA. Glad to find this warm and well appointed Inn open for evening bookings. Arrived before 7 PM and we were quickly seated. Not a huge dining area but most tables in the two rooms had a view two hearths with gas log fires. Crowd grew while we dined but we never felt cramped. Calamari appetizer -... More

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.
