Thank you to Lori and Tiffany for great service over the two evenings we had dinner here. Gourmet level food at reasonable prices. Twin lobster tails were $26, many specials. Great wine list.

I would go back here. Cool old building with decent food. Chicken was good and loved the maple butter that came with the bread.

My wife and I stopped in for a drink and a snack, and had a very enjoyable time. We sat at the bar, which was extremely tiny, and had a couple of beers and two appetizers. The fish cakes were good, and the venison sausage was exceptional. The latter was served with a raspberry/port sauce which offset the slight gaminess... More

The food was all very good starting with the cranberry fritters you get for free to the apple crisp with ice cream. The service was very good and the owner, Michael, even stopped by our table to make sure all was okay. The restaurant is old but that's part of the history behind it and I found it very interesting.

The place is old and feels old in a not good way. The food was edible but not memorable. We had turkey dinner. They charge extra for anchiovies but don't tell patrons (really!!). Would not recommend.

Ye Olde Tavern is a circa 1790 Colonial Inn and proud to wear its long history... We work quite hard to maintain the original design of the interior and exterior, with great attention to detail. In many, many reviews, the ambiance and the building itself, are one of the highlights of our guests dining experiences. As far as your meals,... More

Nice place to celebrate a special occasion. Great food and unique atmosphere, but pretty expensive menu and inconvenient dinner hours. Nevertheless, my husband loved this place.

Ate here with friends and the restaurant has not changed. The food is still very good, the ambiance is wonderful, good service. How can you go wrong? They have an "early bird" before six during the week which is very good value. This is still one of the better places in Manchester. I recommend this place to my friends and... More

Food was above average and priced reasonably. We had the early bird special, and though the portions were on the small side, it was enough food. Usually I like to split an entre, but the portions would not feed two people. Atmosphere was quaint and definitely Olde.
