“Northfield is Quaint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you stay at the Archer House make sure to have dinner down in this little haven. It is really different and the food is inn food and different and tasty. Try it - you will like it.

“$4 Breakfast Special can't be beat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Great spot to eat after a night in the Archer House. Quirky location with a warm, old world feel. Serive is bright and fast. Great value and will visit again!

“Always a pleasant experience.”

Nice, cozy place with great food & service. Have been going there for 20 years and have never had a bad experience. Located in downtown Northfield, there's a lot nearby to see and do.

“Tavern style, family friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Pleasantly surprised by this charming place and a perfect match for this old picturesque little town. We walked into a lively dinner time and walked through its wooded environment to our corner table into a room filled with atmosphere and good homey food. Fall is around the corner and with crispier evenings their delicious soups are most welcome. We had to drive to airport, so we passed on their menu of 50% off wine bottles Sundays (and not enough in our party anyway) but our preferred ones were on that list. 'Legend' has it that the back stone -vault like hallway and the spiral stairs that lead to hotel were alive and well during "the Prohibition". With our tight schedule we could only try soups and salads that were appetizing. The evening before when we walked by, outdoor diners had a live band playing for them on the back deck facing the river. Service was as good as it can be on a busy Sunday when others in town are closed. The lively chatter reminded me of the Prancing Pony in The Lord of The Rings (though we didn't see that much beer). Hope we can visit again with more time, seems like the perfect dinner place for a cold evening. Enjoy!

“A cozy and charming place by the river.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

I live in Saint Paul but I have visited Northfield off and on for the last twenty years. I have never been disappointed in the Tavern and I was especially pleased this past week when I brought three golfing buddies for a late lunch after a round.

We started off enjoying their many good beers and then we had a variety of good food from a large selection. No complaints, and, in fact my friends were surprised by the quality of both the food and excellent service. I'll be back.
