No family around so my wife and I went to have lunch. They had a special menu and it was great. The food was very tasty and the service was very friendly and good. We love the setting there also. Each room is different. The Rum Tinis were very good also.

I came here on a Tuesday night for dinner with my boyfriend. Love the location- tucked away off the beaten path in Duxbury, and the building itself is very historic and antique. We LOVED the bar, so cozy with the fire behind us. Bartender was really sweet and on top of her game, the food was outstanding and can't beat... More

Nice atmosphere and good service but the food is expensive. It is very good but not great. It is located in a charming colonial home and you can eat in the pub from the less expensive pub menu.

This is an exceptional local restaurant. What makes it so good is that it is almost two restaurants in one. On one side of the restaurant is a pub. On the other side is an elegant country dining room. One menu provides choices between gourmet dining selections ranging from $18 to $27, and comfort pub fare from $12 to $19.... More

Our last visit to the Sun Tavern left us less than pleased with the staff. We returned because we always liked the food and the overall appeal of the restaurant. This time, we had an enjoyable and engaging waitress. She was just conversational enough but not to much. Our drinks, appetizers and food all appeared in a timely but uncrushed... More

We had a 7:00 PM reservation and showed up 5 minutes early but had to wait till almost 7:20 to be seated which was a bit of a bummer. The ladies enjoyed had some good cosmos and I... More

This is a great restaurant. The food is very very good and the presentation is outstanding. We sat close to kiithen where the food is picked up by the waitresses. I thought I watching Hell's Kitchen. The steaks are aged for 28 days and are terrific. Also, the atmosphere is a cross between cozy and romantic. Reservations are needed on... More

Very nice atmosphere in an old renovated house. The place has seen many owners over many decades as a restaurant and the current has a done a great job with a solid menu. There is both a formal dining room and a tavern, with a more basic menu. The isn't a more romantic place on a winters night with huge... More
