Excellent local spot with outstanding food and service
wonderful restaurant, first choice for us when dining local
Beautiful New England tavern- exceptional food and service.
Our server, Anna was excellent! Great ambiance; food very good.
We went there for Christmas Eve. It was exactly what we were looking for. The ambience was fitting for the occasion. The meals were very good, and the service was excellent.
We went for Christmas Eve dinner. Even though we were the latest seating, we were never rushed. Food was great.
Since this present too over this is THE BEST Oxford House Tavern has ever been!!! Have never since had a bad experience here! Highly recommend
The pirogies are so out-of-this-world delicious-with caramelized onion and bacon -the perfect app to share. We then had Chicken Marsala-perfect portions. Not too skimpy but not like it’s designed for a family of four. We left happy and full. The fireplace is always irresistible on a cold evening and 1/2 price bottle of wine was a welcome surprise! A real neighborhood gem!
Great service as usual.
Service was great.. food delish happy they have gluten free options, close to home… cozy setting
Service was amazing
Food and menu selection perfect variety
Atmosphere very nice as New England traditional restaurants go..
Love the food, and service . Everyone was very nice, we were sat by the bar and kitchen, so it was very loud and a lot of activity so that was not great, Or I would have given a better score.
Server was excellent, food was good, great value. Place was decorated nicely for Christmas, will definitely be back.
Great food and outstanding service!
It’s was a chilly evening and the fireplace was great.
Haven't been there in years . . . was not disappointed! The food was fabulous and fresh and good size portions.
Thank You so much for your review, we hope to serve you again.
Fantastic, our server, Sierra was so helpful and knowledgeable . We had the Tuna Tartar, and the Surf and Turf appetizers. Wow what a great presentation and wonderful flavors. I had the Mahi and hubby had the Filet mignon Oscar, they were perfect. We will be back.
Service was excellent our waitress was attentive portions were very good
Food was great , our young man server was not very attentive, we had to flag him down several times for things as simple as water. But overall the service was good
My experience was delightful. We were room to the side of the bar. The service was incredible. Everyone came to our table with a smile.
Delicious. There were 7 of us and we all enjoyed our dinner here, The owner is always here and always greets us.
I always drive by and see a full parking lot. I want to say, WOW, now I know why. The bartender was fantastic, Regina. She took great care of us and made some amazing drinks, get the pumpkin martini!!!!. I had the Short Rib Special, one of the best meals I've had in years. Fantastic. My wife had the sole special, was perfect. We cannot believe we drove by all these years. Will return
I had a wonderful birthday here at the Oxford Tavern. Our server was Kelly, she was very helpful with our questions, I'm gluten free, so the made me GF pasta. They did a fantastic job in accommodating me. Their Creme Brulee was one of the best I've had in years.
Pleasantly surprised , the service was prompt. The staff were all so helpful. We came on rib night, and oh boy, we have leftovers for tomorrow! These were fall off the bone baby back ribs, superb. I cannot say enough what a value. Our new spot.
Thank you , please visit us again.
Fantastic, great service, I had the filet Oscar, it was perfect and so tender. Will return
Thank you , please visit us again.

Food was very good. Service was spotty. Good value.
Service was good. Food was mediocre for the price. Probably won’t be back.
Great food. Great service. Big portions. Waitress was great about substitutions and special orders. Everything was delicious.
The friendly and attentive staff, the creative and well-prepared meals, and the relaxed atmosphere all combined to make our dining experience at Oxford House excellent.
Clam chowder "freshly made" tasted like from Newport!
Fra Diavolo with Linquine excellent!
Reasonable prices considering the guality!
First time here. Started with the strawberry lemonade coattail which was very refreshing. The wife and I shared a salad which was huge. Had to bring some home. A friend of ours also had a huge salad which she had to take home.my wife ordered the chicken parmigiana. She said it was very good. I had the fish and chips which was also very good. Our friend had the shrimp skewers which she said was wonderful. Overall the food was good with large portions. My only complaint was the tartare sauce that came with the fish didn’t have enough relish in it. The waitstaff was pretty good but needs a little more training on how to deliver the food to the table. Should not be reaching over people. We did enjoy our visit and may return.
Showed up hours late, just before closing, and they found us a table by the fireplace. Very clean and nice atmosphere. The Server was very personable. The food. Delicious, I had the Mahi special, it was fantastic, my wife had the surf and turf, what a presentation. and the steak was so tender. We will return.
Haven’t been here in quite a while. My friend and I shared several plates. We had the fried calamari, which was crisp and light. We then had the Emily salad. It was huge and definitely of sharing size. Fresh and delicious. Next we had the steak and shrimp kabob. Served on a skewer standing tall in a block of wood. The meat was perfectly cooked , tender and tasty. The shrimp were good as well with a little bit of spice on them. Topped off dinner with the triple layer chocolate cake, yummm. Perfect ending to the meal.
We were seated next to the door that lead to outside seating which put us square in the middle of a cold wind every time staff opened it. Sometimes they left it open while they talked to each other. It was very uncomfortable. It also took an hour to get our entrees although the salad came almost immediately.
The staff should have asked if we were ok sitting where they put us; they had to know it would be an issue, although we didn’t when we sat down.
Food was good waitress was very attentive no complaints
First time there since the new owners run it. (it has changed hands many time in the last few years) We were both pleasantly surprised by the staff and the great entrees. We had a great time and plan on coming back.
