Dropped in to Tweeds for drinks and a light bar snack. Friendly and welcoming staff, good drinks selection, crab cakes and buffalo mozzarella bar snacks were excellent.

I came here for a business lunch with two colleagues from out of town. The service was friendly and pretty quick but there was a slight confusion at the end with the bill. We all tried variants of Bison. My meat (hanger steak) was good, maybe slightly more medium well than medium but the greens did not appear too fresh.... More

My wife and I have just had a 4 star meal here at Tweeds. It was the best meal out we have had out in weeks. We picked 3 Bison choices : Bison Kabobs, Bison soup and Bison hanger steak. All were prepared perfectly. the service was warm, helpful and friendly. We wish it was not 2 hours from NYC.... More

A great restaurant with an interesting history. The bison fillet were to die for, so tasty and grilled to our liking, blue-rare in my case. The buffalo herd are farmed within 5 miles, which we visited. The staff were very helpful and so hospitable to their guest from UK. An interesting selection of local wines. A must place to visit...

Warm and cozy with white table clothes a great bar and friendly service. Tweeds always delivers excellent food. The local seafood preparations are superb. The bison burger is a delicious alternative. Rain or shine, you'll be happy you chose Tweeds.

You can't beat Tweeds old world pub atmosphere. Dark woods, a fireplace for the cooler months, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, and posters that reflect the history of the area. We had the crab cakes and the signature buffalo burger for lunch. You can't top the the burger or the wedge fries that come with it. The meat comes from their own... More

Birthday lunch for five. Had a great dining experience with Bison and Kobe beef burgers enjoyed by all. Started with their unique take on Long Island clam chowder: Chowder clams finely chopped with bacon and scallions. The beer selection was thorough and eclectic. One of our diners had a German Octoberfest. The gin and tonic was oversized. Had a tet-a-tete... More

This is my favorite restaurant! I always get the Bison Burger with bacon and cheddar, which is both delicious and enormous. While they recommend getting the burger medium, they are always accommodating to my request for medium-well. I've eaten there probably 30 times, but have never ordered anything else. However, family members, co-workers, and friends that have eaten there with... More
