Party of three, had mushroom & crab soup, butternut squash soup, lamb chops, pork chop special and filet mignon. Everything was off the chart scrumptious! Our server, Andrew, was spot on efficient.
Love this place and look forward to returning.
Highly recommend.

Perfect place to meet and talk, if only it were not full of flies!

Food was okay, but did not live up to expectations. Service was excellent.

Food and service was great! Table was not available even though we had a reservation, so we had to wait. Parking was the worst.

CFT was rammed last night! We had a reservation but still waited 20 minutes. So plan accordingly if you go…
Everything else was wonderful however. Good, fresh food…calm, friendly staff and a fun bar energy. Only miss the live music.

Enjoyed our dinner here last night. Our server Brandon was very prompt and friendly. The food was good, portions were large, my husband enjoyed his filet mignon cheesesteak a lot. My only complaint was there was a bit too much honey poured over my fried chicken entree for my taste but otherwise it was tasty. Next time I will ask for it on the side. It was quite crowded so if noise bothers you that might be a problem but it was fine for us. A welcoming neighborhood tavern atmosphere.

Was excited to try Chadds Ford Tavern again and it didn't fail! From the time we went into the restaurant, our server Steve was friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, and made sure our food was just right! I had the Filet Mignon cheese steak and it was fabulous! Can't wait to go back!

This was our first time visiting and we were very impressed with the food. I had one of the best steaks I have had in a very long time and my husband's fish special was also amazing. Even my son's kid's entree was delicious. Excellent service and wonderful food! Will definitely be back!!!

The food was very good. The service was very good. It was rather loud because of a large party. And the atmosphere is a bit dated. But I would return.

Our dinners were excellent, and our server Joe was attentive and terrific. I was taken aback by the personable young hostess/ who was a beautiful young lady who looked just like Kate Middleton!
I loved the bacon wrapped scallops, and the crab mac & cheese. My husband’s striped bass was fabulous!
Definitely recommend this restaurant!

Chadds Ford Tavern exceeded our expectations. The food was quite good with some nice creative touches in the homemade chips (homemade sauce), brought as a complimentary starter; and the appetizers (watermelon goat cheese salad--fabulous, and scallops which were quite tasty). We had filet mignon (mashed potatoes and great asparagus as sides) for the mains; both were quite tasty and toothsome. We splurged on two desserts--cappucino creme brûlée and a dark chocolate cake made with stout.
Our server was very attentive and pleasant, the space is attractive. All in all, a terrific dinner. Only minor quibble is that the sound track could be tweaked to better match the rest of this fine restaurant.
(If I could, I"d give it 4.5 stars). Wish we lived closer so we could come more often.

All I have to say is WOW!! Amazing food and such a great staff. Me and my wife went to Longwood Gardens for the day, and I was looking up restaurants in the area and this one came up. Great reviews, I saw. And I always look at that before stopping and eating. But this place was was GREAT! We will definitely be back! Alexis was our waitress, and she was attentive and gave us a little bit of history of the establishment, and the food was just UNBELIEVABLE!!

Really enjoyed this place. Food was great and so was the service. We were in the bar section which had a live band. The band was very good but it was very loud. It was hard to have a conversation but overall, very nice evening. We will return!

This was our first trip here. Came out on a recommendation from coworkers and it did not disappoint. I will say that if you are planning to visit on a Saturday, make a reservation. On that note, we made a reservation and were seated within minutes of arrival. The bonus was that we were seated in time to take advantage of happy hour cocktail pricing. Once our orders were taken, we had a moderate wait for our food to arrive. Everything came out from the kitchen at the same time. All of our orders were correct and everything was fresh and well prepared. I will mention that they seemed a little understaffed, but that did not seem to affect our service. A big thank you to our server Kyle for making our first trip out a good one. We plan on returning in the near future.
