We found this great tavern while driving around last year on vacation. The food and service were excellent! The seating is a little tight at peak times. This year we chose to go around 2pm and that was much more comfortable for us! Love the eggplant and requested it as a sandwich on my 2nd visit and they made it... More

I love taverns. But not this one. I went for lunch and dinner. Lunch I had a burger.. it was topped with white pasteurized cheese slice. Not what I would expect for an $11 burger. Dinner was Lobster casserole for $19.00 ..mostly bread stuffing. Not much lobster. Served without garnishment Looking around, just an overpriced good place with an historic... More

To be fair and honest, I worked here 20 years ago and grew up in Duxbury. This place is consistent, feels like home and tastes like home. However, the food appears to have improved significantly since I was a teenager. It's gone from typical good American to great American

Went here with a large group after a funeral. Staff did a great job coordinating all the plates to come out pretty close together. Everyone enjoyed. Had a ham and cheese omelette. Big and cheesy. Would have liked some herbs in there, but good none the less.

Cozy, charming decor and reliably good menu make this a popular venue for dedicated locals as well as newcomers. The food is unpretentious and well-prepared; favorites like steak and chops , and delicious soups like the seafood bisque. There's a lively bar area to the right when you enter; the dining room is separate with a piano player on weekends.... More

We stopped there on a lark while driving up the coast. Unfortunately, we can't recommend it. We started with a stuffed quahog (I liked it; my wife didn't), and the escargot (neither of us liked it; it was mush). Both of us ordered surf and turf. Her steak was OK; mine was the worst I've ever had anywhere. The mashed... More
