    The bang bang broccoli appetizer was very tasty. The salmon was perfect. My husband's steak tips were overcooked but the waiter offered to replacement which my husband did not opt to do. It was a busy night, we had to wait for a table but overall we were satisfied.

    My friends and I went to Tavern in the Square in Cranston, RI to watch the Super Bowl. We were having a good time and enjoyed our food and experience—until the end of the night. Without explanation, the sound from the game was turned off and music played. We asked for the play by play to return and it did. We asked if the restaurant was closing and was told no. Then, with two minutes left in the Super Bowl, all of the TVs were turned off. No one told us this restaurant was closing at 10pm. The manager did not let us—or anyone else watch the rest of the game. And we had not settled our bill. While our waitress apologized, the manager said corporate told her she had to close. I asked why that was not communicated to us and she did not offer an explanation. The waitstaff seemed embarrassed by their manager’s actions. We had to quickly pay our bill and then ran to our vehicle to listen to the game on the radio. Our reservation started at 6pm and we had planned to watch the entire game at Tavern in the Square. Imagine our surprise when the game, one of the biggest sporting events of the year, was suddenly, unceremoniously shut off. We were shocked and extremely disappointed as were other confused patrons. We will never return to Tavern in the Square and we plan to tell our friends to avoid it as well.

    Waited even though had reso. Very very loud and very busy (good for them). Food “ok”. Service decent as was so busy. Only go for convenience and daughter seems to like it there. Best used for a place to sit at bar, have a quick bite and watch a game. Other than that, not so sure. Too many better options. Sorry.

    The broccoli was soft. Salads were decent, over priced a bit. Pizza was standard. Menu always seems the same besides one or two seasonal items. Service was the best part. I don’t understand the appeal with this place. I’d call this modern day Applebees. Do better

    I was just wondering why I couldn’t get my eggs cooked over medium. The waitress said only scrambled or over easy. Every restaurant I have ever been to you can get your eggs cooked the way you want them.

    Celebrated our anniversary at TSQ. Outstanding service as always! I had a free appetizer for my birthday month. Tried the Baked Crab & Sweet Corn Dip which was delicious! Martinis were perfect. Choose entrees we had never had before. My husband loved his Parmesan Crusted Chicken and I devoured my Braised Korean Short Ribs which was new on the menu. Atmosphere at this location is fun and vibrant as it is in Garden City, so lots of people watching though the many windows. Always a pleasure eating here.

    Our server was excellent. My son is Celiac and always feels comfortable eating at Tavern. You always get the impression that the staff is very conscientious when you order something GF! I forgot to specify that I wanted a cauliflower crust (my mistake) so I wasn’t thrilled with my pizza. I’ll be more careful next time.

    First time and while we had a reservation others who did not were seated ahead of us. I’ve been in the restaurant business for 30 plus years and it’s important to ensure any guest who has a reservation is elevated to high priority and this wasn’t the case The menu was disappointing as there wasn’t much choice for entrees mainly a burger bar menu The nachos were over cooked and dry. $3.00 for a tablespoon of guacamole was lacking in taste and value Bacon blue burger was cooked as requested but no real condiments or much to go with the patty Waitstaff couldn’t recognize we were still eating and tried to give us to go boxes while we were eating. Friends raved about this place but not for us.
