My wife and I live in Wickford. Ever since the Tavern opened we have loved coming to the Tavern to eat. Whether its for a late lunch or dinner. The food, service, cleanliness, and the ambiance have always been top notch. We ate at many...restaurants outside of NK during the years. Mostly in Providence, Boston, and New Hampshire. I wish they checked all our boxes like the Tavern does. They are, simply, the best all-around restaurant.More

One of our favorite restaurants in RI. Food is always great. Never had a bad meal ever... service always good. Extra shout out to Brianna who was gracious and spot on. Their oriental calamari is so good with pea pods and hoisin sauce amongst other...ingredients bursting flavors on to your taste buds. NE Clam chowder and lobster bisque, hot and creamy rich in taste loaded with clams, and lobster. Lobster Scallop Cardinal was loaded with seafood and a perfectly seasoned sauce. My gyro was one of the best I’ve had. Love sitting outside overlooking wickford harbor - will be so sad when the cold sets in.More

Made reservations for a quaint 1st. anniversary dinner. Arrived at restaurant, only two large dinner parties of around 8-people each, one waitress, one waiter, both in front of me updating tables orders???, NO greeting, so we stood there not knowing what to do? Finally I...asked waitress if anyone was going to acknowledge us, & we have a reservation. There were no more seating for downstairs dining, ( night of wind storm, 8-4-20) so we stated we would sit inside. We were shown upstairs which was basically an attic! It smelled of hot, polyurethane old wood. Manager left a bunch of paperwork & stuff on one of the six tables, which was finally removed. If waitress had not shown up, we were leaving...Pasta Bolognese not worth $19.00, more like a lunch portion, and oriental calamari not much of a hit, either. 1st. anniversary dinner was upsetting. Two meals, two beers & one red wine, not worth $68.00 Very disappointing, don't go by other reviews...More

The beet salad was literally a whole can of sluced beets dumped on a plate and and the tuna app was not quality. My daughters mac and cheese was fine but it's hard to mess that up.

Lovely setting with a view of the water. Great social distancing and efforts to keep people safe (though they do use regular menus). Great Caesar salad with grilled chicken. Will be back again.

I've never had service better than this at a restaurant. The menu was great, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was super. I would return here with no hesitation if I ever came back to North Kingstown. I had the lobster roll, it had...an excellent flavor. The presentation was very good and the owner (manager?) treated us like royalty.More

Unfortunately it got too chilly after the sun went down to eat outdoors but we were happy we decided to stay and eat in the indoor dining room. New England clam chowder was thick creamy and full of clams. Baked scallops were fresh and tender....Seafood Paella- on of the specials- had a twist in that there were chunks of salmon mixed in the rice. The other seafood- clams shrimp and mussels also very fresh. Prices very reasonable for quality of foodMore

We arrived kind of late and the manager and server went out of there ways to make sure we had a nice meal. The stuffed quahog was soooo good! I ordered the vegetable medley as a side dish and they were nice enough to leave...out the items I didn't like! My husband loved his linguini with shrimp and olives. One friend had a salad that the talked about for days. As boaters we thought the drive station hostess stand was outstanding! Kudos for the manager for praising her kitchen staff and servers also!More
