Working in the Milford, MA area and went with colleagues to the Depot Street Tavern. When looking at the website, I noticed that they recommended reservations. They were busy and I'm glad I made reservations. We were seated promptly and had great service. We all...enjoyed our dinners. I had a pasta entrée that had their own sausage. It was delicious. Depot Street Tavern is #1 according to TripAdvisor in Milford and I definitely recommend it. If Liz is your server you will enjoy the experience even more.More

Imaginative menu with something for everyone and a diverse bar menu. Wonton nachos are to die for. Small restaurant with a sizable attached tent to one side. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive.

Though pricy! Food was Excellent and filling. 3 Star due to didn't know Reservations were "Required" went for dinner with my son for 1st time ever to support local Restaurant in my Town and was told no reservation, could eat there but had a Max...time of 45 minutes to eat & be out!! For that, felt rushed and didn't order a App and got dessert to go, plus a MUCH lower tip left than what would have...Owner was excellent & super friendly - Just didn't like the rushed feeling at all, hoping if/when visit again be a much better experience but don't plan to just "Walk-In"More

Not you're typical pub food as they like to put a twist on favorites. There will be a wait no matter when you go.

The portions are huge, the service is fabulous and probably the best part is the food is always fresh and cooked to perfection. The drinks are a tad expensive, but well worth it. If you see a long line, stay in line...it goes by quickly...and you don’t wait long! You won’t be disappointed here ever. Little history...used to be Crivello’s crossing for decades. My grandfather used to take me for ice cream here in the 70’s! Yep, that’s 1970’s! 😊👍🏻More

Small neighborhood spot with great food and excellent service. Most recipes have a unique twist and taste. Large portions. You can’t go wrong here. My husband wanted a “ sampler “ of three different entrees because he just couldn’t choose! We will be back !

Totally agree with their motto “Depot Street Tavern - the way a tavern should be” This place is busy…even bar seating comes at a premium and you need to get permission from the gatekeeper…LOL Wide selection of craft beers and while I was trying to...decide the bartender brought me a sample of the two and I selected the Definitive Contee Kolsch. I saw many of the various appetizers go by me out to the tables and they are huge so I passed. Also saw many of the sandwiches go by…there is no skimping on anything here. The bartenders (all four of them) are exceptional and shared their recommendations for dinner, as the kitchen makes things FROM SCRATCH!!! The menu encompasses a wide variety of options along with a chalkboard with daily specials. I decided to go with the Ultimate Chicken Parmesan that is a large crispy chicken breast smothered in mozzarella cheese with fresh basil, prosciutto, locally made penne pasta (easy to tell this was no boxed pasta…and it was perfectly al-dente) with a homemade tomato cream sauce that complimented the dish perfectly. All a little Romano cheese and some homemade garlic bread that actually was hamburger buns…but they worked and were tasty. Overall…an exceptional meal with friendly service. Watching the staff interact with the customers shows this is a neighborhood establishment loved by the patrons and occasional visitors.More

Really disappointed in this restaurant. Way overpriced for average and below average food. Ordered special..encrusted flounder. It was served not even warm and the herbs they used were not palatable. They put it back in oven for me. Asparagus was charred black. My husband's fried...fish was ok..nothing special. Have tried this restaurant 3 times and out! $58 lunch.More

5 of us went there for dinner, early to avoid the inevitable wait, as the popularity is greater than their space and capacity. Parking can be a challenge, but I got lucky this time and found a space just next to the restaurant. All the...food seems to be sourced locally, and as a craft beer lover, their rotating selection is very good for a place this small. Nice sized bar, and a small dining room. Specials and beer selection is written on chalk boards; tavern type of setting. All 5 of us loved our dinners. Portions were large, and the food was great. On top of that, the servers were very friendly, smiling, and engaging. Can't wait to go back and try something else there.More
