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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
