We visited The First and Last Tavern based upon a recommendation found in a 2016 Fodor’s Travel Guide. Hopefully, Frodor’s will remove this establishment from future publications. The pizza is better than what is generally available at national chains, but not as memorable as that...More

I met my wife there for lunch and normally, I'll have their pasta and shells or pizza but I tried something different and I was not disappointed. There are many choices on the menu. The staff is very attentive as well.

I always bring friends from out of town here. Great atmosphere. Great food. Plenty of parking despite a previous post by someone else. Parking is available in the back, the other side against the building and across the street at their Bakery.
