This was my first time in this restaurant and was amazed at what it had become. My only memory of the place was from about 18 or more years ago when I last drove past it. The place looks old and colonial enough (Founded 1845)...More

I have been eating at the Boiling Springs Tavern for 40 years. We used to have office staff meetings over lunch there, as well as many dinners out. The food is always good. Love their Seafood Bisque.

We have nightly features that change every few days, but we don't have prime rib. We do have slow braised boneless beef short ribs which are very popular!
