“Cheesy but fun”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

My husband and I went to Shakespeare Tavern for our anniversary. We had never been before and thought it would be nice to try something new. Overall we had fun. We ate dinner before at another restaurant and arrived at the tavern right before the performance. I was able to purchase some wine, even though the kitchen was closing. The place was very crowded so we sat in the back. The people who volunteer were eating their dinner behind us which was a little distracting but not really a major issue.The actors were good and presented a modern spin on Shakespeare. It was very entertaining and although it seemed kind of cheesy we had a good time.

“Shakespeare + wine + beer + food = Fun”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

If you like Shakespeare and enjoy wine or beer this is the place for you. I totally love it. The food was pretty good. I tried the Coq au vin and enjoy every single bite. Wine bottles were decent and affordable. The Play was awesome, well performed characters and good acting. I will recommend any of the plays here. Can’t way to go back myself!

“Good theatre; fun atmosphere.”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

Sit and enjoy a pint or dinner with your Shakespeare. Usually well-acted, especially the comedies, with live musicians. Very accessible. Plan to have †he apple crisp at intermission.
