Fernwood Restaurant

Restaurant details
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is a local moderate-priced restaurant where the staff has been there for years and know their regular customers. It has a cosy atmosphere, on the dark side, which makes for comfortable conversation groups in booths and tables. The Fernwood is closed to the public on Sundays, but our family has been able to rent the place and have a buffet served to nearly 100 people on a birthday celebration and also a benefit event. We even brought in our own band. For us we usually eat there at least once a month. Lots of parking out back is available.

We had been wanting to try this place for a lot time. Now we wondered why we waited!! All of the waitstaff were welcoming and treated us like family. They came over to our table and knew that we had never been there before. Bev was so nice to us she suggested items on the menu. This is a true local place. I ordered the prime rib and it was amazing! I even sent a picture to my mom. My husband ordered the pulled pork grinder with German potato salad. The drinks are well mixed and the way a drink should be. The decor is so old school rustic it is great. Absolutely love it you will not find it anywhere else. We cannot wait to go back!

The "Fern" has been around forever as a favorite local place. The food is consistently good, waitstaff friendly. Love the Patty Melt, and if you like Liver and Onions, this is the place!

Excellent food - every time. Easily overlooked on New Britian ave, worth seeking out.
