I decided to stray away from my usual take out place. Bad move!!! I ordered the Grilled Vegan Tofu from the Foreside Tavern. Sounded great. Presentation was ok. Taste was super salty. The asparagus stalks in this dish was practically raw but the leaf part...More

We had dinner there on Friday night and we were in the middle of a blizzard, but the place was packed! The food was excellent and the service couldn't have been friendlier. Very large restaurant with lots of space but not cavernous. We did not...More

Stopped in for lunch the other day and once again enjoyed everything - from the quick service to the great simple lunches that featured a mix of specials and regular menu items. Nice having the bagel connection to substitute an "everything' for traditional bread slices....More

We waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table and there were only two other tables occupied at the time. Our server was completely emotionless and responded to our basic questions like a robot. We only ordered light apps and they took 20...More

I used to meet a friend for lunch at this place and the food, except for the crab cakes, was always good, not great. I had't been to the Foreside in a couple of years. The first sign that things had changed was that the...More
