We were greeted warmly by the hostess and guided to a nice table so five of us could have lunch. The server (Josh) was personable and friendly. He also knew the menu. One ordered a burger, nothing fancy, just a burger. He asked for it medium rare and it came just as ordered and was quite good. My wife and... More

This very popular restaurant is fully booked on holidays. Hostess met us with stacks of papers on her dais. Servers and helpers darted in and out with updates on status of tables while unseated diners stood by. A frozen cocktail was delivered with the ingredients not having been in the blender. Turkey was not carved from a freshly roasted bird.... More

Went there on a recommendation of friends and were so glad. Slow night, ( football night) but everything was professional and food was tremendous. Fruits of the sea, scallop dish and glutton free sole. All great. First time, won't be the last.

The wine dinners at the tavern are always a treat. Chef Bob and his talented staff go above and beyond in matching food pairings with the wines of the evening. Susan pulls the front of the house together and it all comes off with flair. The price is right for the dinners and you never leave without being happy!

3 of us made a 6:30 reservation for Saturday night. After being seated our assigned waitress was prompt in coming to our table. She was efficient but not friendly. The food was very, very good and the portiions large. I would return here again but hope I get a friendlier server.

My husband and I were traveling Cape Cod and stopped here for a late lunch on Wednesday, October 5th. Our server, Julie, truly made our visit memorable. We had appetizers (pot stickers and egg rolls - very fresh) and drinks in the pub area with such an inviting atmosphere. We would return here should we be in the area again... More

We ate here twice in 3 days because the service and welcome was warm and friendly. Our meals were very good and good wholesome food and we would certainly recommend this restaurant.
