A word from 84 Tavern on Canal
84 Tavern on Canal is one of Downtown Westerly’s favorite neighborhood restaurants. The menu consists of locally sourced seasonal ingredients while the bar offers handcrafted cocktails and 24 draft beer selections (highlighting local craft beers). Reinvented from its former location at 84 High Street, the Tavern also offers a semi-private dining room.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Like most small towns Westerly appears to be struggling to find it's place in the modern world. From the exterior 84 Tavern on Canal (Canal Street that is not on the canal which we expected) it appeared to be more a Tavern than a restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very pleasant facility, with excellent food and service. The baked pancake was second to none. A real keeper."

  • "Nice experience at 84 this week. We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time. Baked Stuffed Shrimp entrée was good. Husband's chicken entrée was moist and flavorful, as were the garlic smashed red potatoes and green beans served with it. Our son had a Panko Crusted Chicken Stack and like it very much. The Caesar salad and Baked Mozzarella appetizers were very good, but the Chopped Pasta Salad was the winner of the night! Really tasty! Beer flights are always fun, too! We'll be back."

  • "The fried oysters were better than the famous waterside place down rt. 1. Service was good. Friendly. Wine special was tasty Pino Gree Caesar salad was a little too creamy."

  • "I ordered the Surf & Turf with cajun scrimp. The shrimp had just the right amount of spice and the steak was tender and juicy. I also ordered a bottle of their house Merlot that was light and smooth. I would order both again."

  • "Enjoyed our dining experience. Excellent drinks and selection of craft brews. Dinner took a lenghty amount of time to arrive. But was delicious. A little drawback in the atmopshere was eating in a booth...felt like eating in a cubicle. Aside from that, it was a enjoyable experience."

  • "It was a wonderful place to dine at! We all enjoyed our time there. The food was PHENOMENAL! I had a bowl of chili- very filling! I also have an intensive list of food allergies and they were able to meet my needs. In fact I was shocked that I could have the chili- I cannot have corn and that dish usually has corn. But not this place! I was in my own private heaven while devouring that bowl. Thanks 84 Tavern!"

  • "good (not great) dinner with great service despite our initial hesitation once we saw the establishment - it looks like it was once a Chinese restaurant from the outside but ambience was way better than we thought it would be. loved the ceasar salad and steak with ginger roasted beets. nice menu with something for everyone. would eat here again."

  • "Second annual visit was not at all as good as the first. We waited over an hour for our food after asking several times. Once they realized the screw up apologies were offered but no one offered to comp anything. The food is wonderful, so if you don't mind sitting with nothing but your drink for an hour, go for it."

  • "Food was imaginative well prepared and portions were above average for the price. I had the bacon wrapped dates as a snack appetizer and they were lovely. I then followed up with the mussels which even as an appetizer portion was enough for dinner as it came accompanied with fries for dipping. Highly recommend the parm bacon sauce. My husband had the pasta bolonese and the half portion was huge and flavorful. We will be back!"

  • "I had the hanger steak tips with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. Good meat and potatoes meal. The tips were a bit tougher than I had hoped, the potatoes were very good, and the tiny brussel sprouts were excellent. My wife had the stuffed shrimp and ate all of it; which is rare. We ate there in advance of a show at The Knick. One thing we really liked was that the ceiling had acoustic tile, painted grey with a bamboo like fringe, which kept the noise level way down; good for me as my hearing aides had just broken. So, we recommend it if you are looking for a quiet, hardy meal, in pleasant surroundings."

  • "I had family come in from florida and they were able to accommodate 8 of us with no problem. I haven't been here since they moved from High Street and they did not disappoint! It was wonderful! Our waitress (who I remember from the old restaurant) was amazing! I do not have one negative thing to say. It was fantastic!!!"

Food was good, and hot, and plentiful Some of us had owlets, other sandwiches. Good selection to please each person. Server was attentive and respectful of our space at the same time. Have been here for dinner which was also very good."

  • "We very much enjoyed our eperience at 84. We were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time. The atmosphere is very nice in both the large bar area and the dining room. We both tried the Beer Paddle, which is 5 different 4-oz. beers on tap. That was fun. The bread looked homemade and was tasty. The rib eye steak entree was a bit of a disappointment for my companion. He said it wasn't very seasoned and was nothing special. It was a thinner cut of meat so it was more well done than he'd like. The potatoes and kale that accompanied it were good. I liked my baked stuffed shrimp. They weren't jumbo shrimp, but the stuffing was delicious and they were cooked perfectly. The rice pilaf and green beans were good, also. We will be back!"

  • "Love the way they redesigned the space from the restaurant that was previously in that space. Beautiful decor and layout with 2 levels of diners. It was quiet enough that you could have a conversation without having to talk loudly. Food was very good and quite the variety! Yummy calamari! Extensive list of beers on tap. We ate in the dining room but I really like the atmosphere and layout of the bar area!"
