Valet parking only when we went. Nice ambiance inside. Pretty crowded at 5:30 on a Friday. Friendly, efficient service. Great reuben sandiwch and filet mignon dinner.

Wow, wow, wow! The food here is always impeccably cooked and well plated. The BOH certainly knows what they are doing and does it time after time. But please don't tell anybody. Keep it a secret. Consistency in preparing food in the restaurant business is very hard to find and execute. Most restaurants don't/can't do it and unfortunately, most customers... More

Had a very nice time at Bowman's Tavern. No touch having the valet for Mothers day those guys did a great job and they had a sense of humor. We arrived a bit early for our reservation but no problem. They were very busy as expected. I had the very best cod sandwich I think I've ever had. My sister... More

We went here to celebrate my son and daughter in law's wedding anniversary. After reading the reviews it seemed like it would be a good choice. What a mistake. The meatloaf (ordered by my husband and son) was mushy and tasteless. The crab cakes were so-so. My chicken dinner was also not great, with a brown gravy instead of a... More

In New Hope for a birthday celebration weekend. Went to Bowman's on our first night in town. Place was very crowded. Not surprised, the food was great. Portions were big. I shared the roast beef and a salad with a friend and the portions were perfect for 2. Another friend had the mussels as her dinner and that portion was... More

If you are looking for a good burger and delicious onion soup this is your place. Bowman's Tavern has a true tavern feel, the bar is packed most of the time. The only downside is the skill of the wait staff.

We enjoyed dinner at Bowman's Tavern our first night in town. We came back every night thereafter for a nightcap and to listen to live music in a laid back atmosphere. Thursday nite was terrific. Lorenzo played guitar, flute, bongos, harmonica and tambourine. He took every request we could think of and delivered!!! Excellent food, relaxed atmosphere and good music.

We find Bob Egan a fantastic musician and facilitator of piano fun. The restaurant has great food and is well managed. You can find Bob, and the good menu any Friday evening.
