“Great Food and Great Service”
Reviewed January 29, 2011

We had our Christmas Party at the Tavern and I have to say, the food, the service and attentativeness given to our function was outstanding. We have booked again for the summer and Christmas.

“Mediocre - but summer is sweet on the deck.”
Reviewed December 29, 2010

I've had a few meals here, being a local. None of them memorable. The Tavern had a monopoly on the market in Bath; but now there are a few new startup, the Irish bar, and the new place on Front Street. However..... if you're in the mood to sit on a deck right on the river - this is the only place. You could venture 10 miles to the Osphrey and enjoy better food and a nice view; or to Brunswick to the Seadog which has an elevated deck, and better eats, generally speaking. Or go to the Kennebec, have a drink, and a burger - you can't really go wrong sticking to the basic.

“Great view, poor planning”
Reviewed August 29, 2010

Perhaps it was crunch staffing, but they had only one person seating the dinner crowd and she was very a slow elderly woman who also had to prep the tables. I don't know if she was the owner but she definitely lost out on customers who got sick of the slow progress of the line (when there were plenty of tables both in and outside.) Food was fine and the view of the Kennebec very nice--try to wait for an outside table next to the river.

“View and ambience good, food not so much!”
Reviewed August 25, 2010

I'm afraid we were very disappointed with the food, though we enjoyed sitting by the water.
The clam chowder had way too much flour and was far to thick. We expected much better from a riverside restaurant and in New England.
