We stopped for lunch on our way through town. Looked like a quaint restaurant, the bar was full of locals and the menu looked extensive. The food was good ,I had a burger and my husband had the seafood chowder and half sandwich. Maybe we just caught it at a bad time but the service was very slow and took... More

The Tavern is a must see when you find yourself in Bridgton, Maine. We have been going there for over 20 years and it is always top notch. The service is great and the food is very tasty and plenty of it. My favorite is the prime rib which is awesome. When they have bread pudding with the hot bourbon... More

They do have a small GF menu but I wanted a Grecian Chicken dinner that called for spaghetti and they made it for me with fresh green beans that were wonderful! I also had crime brûlée for dessert that was really good.

The Black Horse Inn is a good choice for some traditional American Pub fare. The restaurant was quiet on a Saturday for lunch and we were quickly seated. Our server was friendly and very courteous and the overall service was excellent. The Peppercorn Salad was very good with sliced apples and sliced banana peppers providing a nice mix of sweet...

The lunch food was very good. Have been there many times over the past 20 years. Server was terrific (did not get her name), young girl at the hostess station was super sweet. Hubby had a Reuben Sandwich with a seafood chowder, I had the French Onion soup and baked stuffed haddock. While the quality of the food was great,... More

A recent dinner on a busy Saturday nights was surprisingly excellent, starting from the welcoming staff at the entrance. We saw that there were a few parties waiting and we were offered to wait at the bar (where we could stay for dinner too). After about 15 minutes our table was ready and there was no problem transferring the tab... More

The seafood chowder was thick snd full of seafood, and the peppercorn hamburger I ordered was THE BEST hamburger I have been served EVER in a restaurant. My wife's fish and chips were light... More
