I had a late dinner here, and was impressed by the selection of local brews available. The Tavern has a copper bar... I've never seen anything like it. The food was good, and Dave, the bartender/server, managed to give everyone service with a smile.

The eggplant parm was delicious as were the Jamaican Jerk wings and the brussel sprouts. Tracy made us some really good Mai-Tai's. Tracy is a super waitress/bartender. She also has a great sense of humor. Thanks for the great food and laughs. The place was clean!.

We weren't even sure they were open as it was a weekday and there was only one other car in the parking lot,and the landscaping left some... More

I would like to give this a higher rating. However the 3 is because the beef in the beef stroganoff was tough and chewy. The flavoring was great and noodles were tasty. Others present raved about their meals. It's a nice friendly establishment and the service was great. Be aware that you have to look hard to see it. It... More

We tried several dishes and all impressed. Fresh ingredients and food prepared by a chef who is mastering her craft. We met Jackie the chef and Betty was our waitress.... More

After checking into the adjoining Colonial Motel in unexpected circumstances (broken down vehicle), I came into the Tavern for a much deserved beer. Many restaurants connected to a motel has the stigma of not exactly offering cutting edge cuisine - Surprise!! The Tavern offers a good selection of local brews on tap, many wines and an interesting menu! I only... More

The Tavern Restaurant was recomended to me, as I began a new construction project in Brattleboro, Vermont. It is connected to a hotel, near one of Brattleboro's round-a-bouts, but I'm not sure it is the same business Owners? The dining and bar area are not large, but tables are arranged with ample room between so you can have your own... More

Had lunch today at the newly renovated Tavern Restaurant. The food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. The decor is very welcoming and the atmosphere very family friendly. Would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner when visiting Brattleboro, VT.

The Tavern at the Colonial Motel allows for a fun night out without the inconvenience of driving to get there. After a long day in meetings, out on the town or hitting the slopes visit the Tavern to refuel. If you're craving sweet desserts or just want to unwind at the bar, The Tavern is the perfect place to grab a bite and a drink. We have one of the best draft beer and wine selections in the area. Our exiting new menu is reasonable priced. Every dish is a winner! In the wintertime get cozy in the Tavern with two brick fireplaces blazing to warm you up after a day on the slopes. Reserve your room online and plan on dining at the Tavern in Brattleboro, Vermont soon.
