My husband and I spent a fabulous 2 hours on the patio on a perfect summer evening listening to fabulous music. The music was only as good as the service and food. We had a fabulous pizza. No better way to spend a summer evening..

Only 3-4 restaurants in town, this one is very good. Ample menu, great staff, a gluten free menu, and accommodating to variations. Food portions were pretty large. Outside seating area very nice, no bugs, maybe needs a bit more candles to read menus.

Okay, it's a popular place and there must be a reason. Could it be because the food is very good with a variety of choice? Surely. Four times now, and four times satisfied. Consistency requires professionalism. This place knows what it's doing.

4 adults and 2 young children. Great meals. Mussels app and fried calamari were close seconds to the Scallop, bacon, pasta dish that was spectacular! Service, as always, was prompt and friendly--they're really on top of their game here.

We stopped in for lunch and the weather outside was iffy so we chose to eat in the Tavern. It is a wonderful room, nice bar; tables and booths along the wall and it looks like it has been there since 1776. The bartender, Josh, was our server. He made us two good drinks, engaged in small talk; delivered our... More

Recently visited the tavern for the first time in many years. Had a wonderful meal at a fair price. My wife had stuffed cod and loved it. I had the Mediterranean fish stew and it was outstanding!! As good as any I have had at the cape. Only complaint was that as we dined at the bar we had to... More
