Always a winner. Although not comparable to the buffet of former times there is still great variety in menu items and good value for the price compared with other similar restaurants. All items were fresh and delicious and the service was great.

Forgot they served mainly comfort food. Place was packed and had a great vibe. Service took a little bit at first. Appetizers were delivered as we ordered them. Food overall was tasty. Fish tacos were nice.

Service was impeccable! Food was good incredible! (Brunch menu). And the best Bloody Mary mix ever. I would buy it if you sold it! I’ve always had great meals and service at the Burlington location. Will definitely be back for brunch again! Well done! And please sell your Bloody Mary mix! The spicy one!

My friends and I were here in Massachusetts going to Salem for Halloween weekend but we were staying at a hotel around the corner from this venue. All three times that we came to this location the food was spot on perfect and delicious! The presentation was amazing and so were the flavor of the dishes. The drinks are so tasty and strong. The best thing out of all of this is all three servers that we had were amazing! They were helpful, receptive, aware, always present, kind, friendly, interactive and delightful to help us! All of the staff including the host go above and beyond. As I have been a restaurant manager for 4 1/2 years in New York City but in the industry for a lot and I can say that hands-down everyone needs to go to the spot!!!

The food and the atmosphere was great but the most memorable part of our experience was our waitperson Toni (it was Halloween so she was dressed like a cow). Not only was she professional, attentive and helpful but she was beyond personable, fun and enthusiastic! That kid made our morning! Kudos to Toni and your hiring manager!

Love coming here. Food is always what you expect. The Tavern Burger is the best burger to get. I tend to get disappointed at other places when I simply want a burger and it comes out with all these crazy sauces and things on it. It is really nice that they just have a delicious, huge, normal burger. Nothing worse than getting a soggy burger with all this stuff on it. Sooo in summary, TAVERN BURGER ALL THE WAY!

Thank you for carrying a gluten free beer other than Red Bridge! The new planet GF beer pale ale was great! We wish more restaurants would carry GF beer with better variety.

It was busy but our reservation for 6 was still ready 10 min early. It was super easy to reserve online and the text updates were convenient. The service and food was fast, and while it was pretty crowded and noisy everyone at our table could still have a conversation. Thank you!

We had a wonderful dinner and lots of fun for my nephew's birthday party. We sat outside which was great because it was quieter out there an inside the restaurant, but I had received a call to say that the sides of the patio would be closed because it was going to be chilly. I was happy to hear this. However... the sides facing the street were not down and could not be put down because the temps has slipped below 54. So it was chilly despite the ceiling heaters. Our table of 5 was right next to the open space. I would have like the experience better if the sides had been put down as we had been informed.

Ordered guacamole and chips as an appetizer. The guac was basically just mashed avocado and a bit of cilantro. It had no salt, lime, tomato, onion, etc. No flavor. And the chips were completely under salted. No salt at the table to improve the taste. Ordered the picante burger with tots. The burger was pretty good and the tots were excellent. Good beer selection. Overall, extremely disappointed with the guac... how do you mess up chips and guac??? Overpriced.
