Great food and service food cooked perfect . Service was on point.
Food and drinks are always amazing. Service was also stellar!
Our favorite restaurant hands down. Excellent service and food consistently.
My date and I got an appetizer to share, two entrees, and two desserts. Food was exceptional but we left hungry. Not enough food for the high price you pay
Pleasant. Dinner and service was great
Great meal but service for drinks was terrible. No water refill, poor bar turn around time. Good meal with great flavors, but service needs to be better for the price.
Excellent food, as always. The calamari appetizer was fantastic. My grilled salmon was perfect, as was my wife's filet. The service, which is always good, was even better this Saturday night. Excellent job overall! We will be back.
A true gem one of the best restaurants and best food you will find anywhere. Worth an hour drive to get there if that is what it takes.
We brought along another couple that was very excited to try OTS and the local beers. They ordered Golden Ticket beer. Server comes back "We're out of that". They order another lighter TBC beer. Server comes back "we're out of that". I ordered the Shellfish Trio "We're out of that". Ordered either the Triggerfish or the eggplant "We're out of that". So I had lukewarm lobster bisque. My husbands strip steak was only 4 ounces of meat at best. Our friends had swordfish that was cut about 1/3 inch thick and dry by their report. Fortunately we are not picky eaters. The service however was absolutely outstanding, and we were comped scallops since most everything else had run out.
We were greeted promptly and our server was outstanding throughout our visit. The calamari is the best we have experienced. My Redneck Whiskey Sour (w/egg) was great. Both our entrees (Shrimp/Grits and Mahi) were prepared exquisitely. The peanut brittle sundae was out of this world. We strongly recommend visiting On the Square.
Always worth the trip from Raleigh.
Amazing food with great wine pairings.
My wife and I have frequented On the Square several times for special occasions and date nights. Our college age daughter was home for the Christmas break, so we decided to give her an On The Square experience.
Unfortunately, there were multiple faux pas from running out of a signature side (without the wait staff being aware) to undercooked entree (medium well request was served medium rare), to the molten lava cake not having any “lava”.
Fortunately, the staff was very apologetic and provided outstanding service recovery. My wife and I will return, but I do not think my daughter will.
Date night with my wife. Our favorite place!!
The food is amazing! Great variety, wonderful service. Also top notch wine. All at a very reasonable price. The best restaurant I've ever experienced .
Had friends with us for Christmas. Amazing food and cocktails.
What a wonderful evening my friends and I had. The food was delicious. The wait staff was so friendly and thoroughly professional. I feel as if I am in a Parisian restaurant each and every time we go there. Bravo!!!!
I always have a great experience in this restaurant. Fantastic food, good service and good ambiance
Lovely restaurant with lots of amazing choices. The food was really great and we enjoyed the eclectic beer selection. The bread pudding was outstanding.
On The Square is a gem. The trip to Tarboro is well worth a visit to see Inez and her staff at On the Square. Great food, beautiful presentation, friendly folks.
Out for dinner with my sister.❤️
We had a great reunion at On the Square with an old friend. Everything was perfect. Thanks
Good food and wine. Knowledgeable staff and nice ambiance
Recommend guardedly .. was not worth the 40 minute drive
The food was excellent, service was very good and the wine recommended by our server was perfect. Portion size was just right. Did not overwhelm but left us with room for a shared dessert. We'll be back!
Great diing experience. Wondrful food and our server was so nice. Me and my family will be back for sure!!!
Superb food service and fun as always
There is nothing else like this place in NC
Love, love, love!!
The food and presentation was, as usual outstanding.
The staff was friendly. Our food was delivered in a timely fashion and was absolutely delicious!
the food my wife and i had was excellent. however in the seafood trio our neighbor received the oysters were severely overcooked and the other items were "watery" indicating they were frozen and not fresh. tarboro is within 2 hours of wanchese, nc which has the freshest seafood in the state and easily accessible. i would recommend for a restaurant of your stature to either serve fresh seafood or none at all.
Goid goid and wine but service was spotty. Expected better service based on previous visits and reputation. Slow and failed to remember specific requests. Coffee was lukewarm at best. Owner away so this may gave affected the service.
The food was delicious! Fresh ingredients and unique flavor combinations. The menu on-line was different from in restaurant. We were hankering for an item that was no longer an option, but we loved the dishes we did get! Service was great as always. We enjoy the casual atmosphere. Bathrooms could use some attention/love.
Great food - Great wine - Great place to catch up with an old friend - One of my favorites!
Always a great experience and food is consistently good.
OTS is, without doubt, one of my favorite restaurants. The food is ALWAYS delicious, the service is stellar, and I always love return ing to Tarboro to see old friends.
SUPERB! Well worth the drive from Greenville! Open one in Greenville!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great place in Tarboro! Food on par with very good restaurants in the metro cities. The peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream and a coffee at the end of your meal will put you in that coma you may be looking for!
We love On the Square and always plan special occasions at our favorite place! The staff is always so attentive and welcoming and the menu varies enough to keep you excited about trying new dishes.
Service was slow and uninterested. Had 5:30 reservation but took a good 20 minutes for bread to even get delivered to table and only after asking. Water glasses not filled regularly. Have gone there lots of times with great service but not this trip.
