Ordered a pumpkin humus appetizer and they gave what amounted to potato chips for dipping. Salty and average. Had a lamb sandwich was also very average. Wife’s meal the same. Desert was rice pudding. Better but nothing special. Service not good either. Many other better...choices in this area.More

The fake (veg) crab chili rellenos appetizer were spectacular and the mushroom sandwich was one most creative sandwiches I’ve ever had. The chef is a genius. The menu is seasonal and many of the ingredients are regionally sourced from ethical farms. I felt spoiled with...all the vegetarian options. Service was A+. Felt safe for COVID, and they have heaters set up outside for colder weather.More

Don't let the name fool you - we had an amazing dinner! The food was out of this world and the servers were warm and friendly. We had the duck confit tacos, meatloaf and chicken pot pie - they sound like comfort foods, but were...upscale and incredibly delicious!More

We had a great night at Bowman's Tavern. Carly took great care of us. Our wings and macaroni and cheese were terrific. The scallops and steak were awesome. Just an all around great night! P.S. the rice pudding rocked!

I don't eat much beef. So, when I have a craving for a great burger, I want nothing less than the best. And Bowman's delivers every time! They start with great grass fed beef and then they prepare it well. A great burger deserves a...great roll and Bowman's serves their burger on a tasty Brioche. We also love their big, fat onion rings. During the current virus crisis we prefer to eat outdoors. Unfortunately, Bowman's has limited outdoor seating (see photo). There are about six outdoor tables that each seat four people. So, if you like to dine outside, my advice is: use Open Table to make a reservation and request an outdoor table.More

Usually have good things to say about a restaurant. Something!! But, got sick 20 minutes after I ate there. Ribs tender, but so spiced that they didn't taste like ribs anymore. Wife's Caesar salad terrible. No taste. Had to ask for more dressing. No bread;...didn't have any available (until I saw them come out with Italian rolls for cheesesteaks. As soon as we walked in they told us we could only stay 90 minutes even though we called and made reservations ahead of time; maybe they should let us know that before they ok the reservation? My dish was, quite frankly, terrible; 5 one inch scallops, refried-like beans and some green beans for $28. I had one diet soda, terrible ribs, and scallops; Wife had caesar salad, and soup. 80$. Used to be a great place for locals. Now, I don't know what it is. Sorry, but I had told some friends to go there; I called them up right after our visit and told them not to go. Last time there. No handicap parking and no handicap access that we could find. Needs some adjustments. Not a great birthday experience.More

As other people have suggested, call the restaurant for a reservation. The only other comment I would add is that this restaurant is more of an adult or older child place. Two bars and music. No place really for younger... More
