We had a nice meal and were able to take advantage of Happy Hour and get a couple of half priced drinks. The service was super fast, as was the food getting to us. The appetizer and meals were very good. We got the apple bread pudding for dessert. It was good but not great. It had clearly been frozen and reheated as it was warm for the first couple bites but cold in the middle. We were seated in the dining room next to the bar area so it was a bit noisy as we were lower than the bar area so picked up much of those conversations.

We had the seafood buffet and it was delicious! Though pricey at $75 per person, you get unlimited crab legs, oysters on the half shell, cocktail shrimp, fish, and other items. The service was excellent -- we loved our server! We will absolutely be back to try some items off the menu. Wonderful!

Food was average however with that said we only had appetizers from the Happy Hour menu. And how can one really get excited about a Happy Hour menu. It's very dark in the place- I get it it's a Tavern but just not loving the feel. Doesn't mean it's not a great place...just not a great place for me!

The food was excellent with a great variety on the menu. Our server Alex was pleasant, professional, efficient and adorable!!! The dessert menu had a great variety but we went with the special waffles and ice cream!!!
Lighting could have been better because I don’t like eating in the dark but overall we will definitely be back

The Chadds Ford Tavern is a great restaurant. Their Happy Hour is great.
It was very busy last night and the AC could not keep up with the heat and all the guests there. Service was a little slow but our waiter Kyle was very attentive.

Another great meal. The buffalo chicken eggroll appetizer was tasty. The strip steak was cooked perfectly and the scallop special was very good.

This place is beautiful and awesome! The food and drinks were delicious! We had the clams and oysters and short rib over potatoes. Fabulous! Dinner was scallops over risotto and jumbo lump crab cakes over risotto. Yum! The service was top notch and always smiling! From the waitress to the runners also a smile and the plate was presented to you, not just thrown in front of you! Drinks were amazingly delicious! If I am ever in the area again I will definitely be back! Thank you for a very lovely meal!

They cram as many people into the restaurant as they can and don’t properly manage reservations. The wait staff is young and friendly although they lack experience to understand when they are over capacity reducing service quality.

Very noisy when we came in, offered to seat us in the sports bar area… so much quieter!
Food excellent, a bit pricey though. Service really great, offered menu information. We met friends, and we’re not rushed at all.
Would definitely go again!

Everything was good from food to service. We don’t eat meat so we’re a little limited with our options. If I had some constructive criticism it would be to be a little more selective with the size of the oysters. They were extra small. I certain don’t like big gaggers but many of them were just too small. Like a teaspoon of meat. Certainly very flavorful though. The salmon and shrimp on the regular menu was really good as were the accompaniments. The special stuffed salmon left a little to be desired and was undercooked. Please don’t let this review stop you from going. We are looking forward to going back for buck a shuck happy hour to see how that is. Definitely a cool old school vibe.
