This a decent restaurant attached to a hotel in a college town. The food was pretty good without being over the top. The service was slow and a little off.

We enjoyed dinner and breakfast at Broad Table Tavern. The food was delicious and fresh, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. There’s a nice cocktail list and the chocolate pot de creme is memorable.

Great beer selection and I know from previous visits they make good cocktails. We went for Impossible Burgers but they were dry and tasteless, and given that the fries weren't hot I suspect it wasn't the burger but some inattention in the kitchen. Server was really nice, and she did ask how things were, but no one felt like waiting for them to re-do the order, so we let it go and didn't say anything.

Food was really excellent. The food exceeded our expectations. We live right down the road and just figured we'd check the place out because it is close. Only complaints are that entree came while we were still eating appetizers and the noise level as we were seated right next to the bar but on a date.

This was the first time we at at Broad Table , we ordered burgers, medium well , both of us and the came very well done and a little dry. We also could barely see or taste the cheese. WE will still give the restaurant another try.

After more than a full year of being open, this place continues to disappoint. Went there with 9 friends for a birthday. They were nice enough to hold both an indoor and outdoor table for us. We ended up outside. Overall, the decor is nice. However, food and service were marginal at best. Server was nice but frantic and overwhelmed most of the night...got many of our drink orders wrong, and an appetizer we ordered never came. Food was okay -- chicken sandwich is tasty, but burgers way overcooked to the point of being bone dry. We have 2 different versions of the drink menu, so not clear what they actually had. This is the only game in town, and they just can't seem to get it together. And the bonus of it all -- it's very expensive.

Our reservation was for 10:45; we were on time and seated very cordially. Placed our order after a few minutes; time went by and a family of seven arrived seated next to us. We noticed they were being served and offered more coffee to us and the order would take a few minutes. After 45 minutes, we gave up and asked for the manager to tell him why were leaving. At the time he said he would take care of our order. It was too late. Another table in the room before we arrived, so they were not that busy. Not organized A very bad experience; we will think twice before trying again

I was hankering for a good Bloody Mary for a rare Saturday brunch. This place came up as having them on the menu, and I have been wanting to eat here since it opened - Perfect! When we arrived we were promptly seated, and they asked for our drinks. Guess what I asked for - a Bloody Mary! They then informed me that the bar was not opened, but they could see what they could do. The brunch menu says they have Bloody Mary's, mimosa's....and the sort, but maybe just on Sundays?? Hmmm...anyway I basically just got tomato juice with vodka and some stuffed olives, all for $9. So not worth it. On a another note, the food was delicious, and the beer menu is decent. Will come back for a happy hour.

I loved the design and decoration of the hotel/restaurant. I was surprised to hear that if you wanted certain tables, they had to be reserved. We were seated at the entrance to the kitchen and I wasn’t thrilled with the spot. I thought the menu was limited. The kale salad was good. The sweet potato gnocchi had a terrific sauce but the gnocchi was far too dense. I think making them smaller would help. The lemon dessert was good, however, I wish there were more choices. Drinks were interesting and delicious. Our waitress was excellent. I would return for breakfast or lunch. The dinner menu doesn’t really interest me.

Each time we have dined here, regardless of the time of day, we have left feeling like we could have eaten better food for the same price at another restaurant within a 10-minute driving radius. Food is mediocre, wine is expensive (but beer selection is good). We only eat here because it is in walking distance of our house.

Broad Table Tavern . . . make it better!

We were a party of seven for a holiday work lunch. The food was delicious and our server, Seth, was wonderful. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food, the "Impossible" Burger was a hit and a couple of us enjoyed the beet and burrata salad. . We agreed we would definitely come back.

This place is terrible. It's a shame bc it could have been a real gem in the community. POORLY managed!!! Overpriced mediocre food. (the chef should be embarrassed to send out food like that...i ordered several dishes and they all were bad. I was hoping they would redeem themselves with my skirt stk. WRONG! Ordered MR and it came out MW. At that point I just wanted my check & to leave. Staff not trained well. No attention to detail. Glassware and silverware were dirty. Windows dirty....I could go on & on.

Limited menu options but the skirt steak was very good. Breakfast on the other hand was not as good. Eggs were tasteless and sausage was infused with some type of maple syrup which I did not like. Home fries were very thin and hard. Had to ask for butter for toast. Coffee was good.

It's a lovely restaurant with a fireplace and attractive bar. Service was friendly. We had brunch, and the food was decent, though not distinctive. This may be, in part, because brunch tends to be the least creative menu at most restaurants. I do plan to try it again for lunch or dinner.
