Burger and fries were both stale and cold; service was interminably slow; and we were over-charged on the bill "by mistake." Our waiter scowled at us when we had the temerity to request a paper menu, rather than a scanned menu.

our waitress was excellent. She was friendly and very considerate. One person has a dairy product intolerance and our waitress made sure that all of her needs were met and checked on everything. Our sandwiches and burgers were delicious. Couldn't ask for a better lunch.

Pizza was good. Fried pickles and crab Rangoons were ok. Service (Joseph aka Jay) very good. Overall I would do it again. Nothing like out of this world, but not bad.

The food was good as was the service but we will not be coming back as the music and the noise level was so loud that it was impossible to speak to others at the table. It was also difficult to communicate with the wait staff.

My 3rd time back to celebrate a special occasion. Everything excellent, until I noticed I was drinking from a chipped glass. I told waiter, he replaced drink immediately. Just disappointed the manager did not come to apologize.

Food and atmosphere were delightful per usual but our server had NO CLUE what was going on. She kept offering drinks but basically completed nothing else correctly.

I’ve been many times for dinner but this was my first time having brunch. Absolutely delicious! The Bloody Mary was so tasty. The French toast bites are to die for! Everything my friend and I got were fantastic. Will definitely be back for more!

As usual, the food and service was great. Bang, bang broccoli was very good. Good beer selection. Sandwiches are very tasty. Make sure you reserve for the weekend, it does get busy.

Came to watch Bruins game the other night made a reservation specifically for the high top so we could have a good view of the game. Unfortunately we were very rushed in there to the point that our server had dropped our check off before the 1st period had even finished. I was so upset about it because I was really looking forward to enjoying some of the game at this place, and yes I’m aware of the 90 minute rule and no the check came before we were even there for an hour.

When I made the reservation I asked that we sit at a low table as my husband is currently using a knee scooter. Everyone we came in contact with was very helpful and nice.

I really like the food here and I certainly appreciate their gluten free availability (I have celiac). I usually get the cauliflower and pickle apps, followed by one of their awesome bowls. Everything I've had here has been delicious. My only gripe is the price of the food, definitely too pricey for what you get.

The poor waitress was frazzled. The place was short staffed, our drinks had to be re-made, as the bar staff was short staffed as well. It’s the way it is right now. She made mistakes in service. Kept apologizing. We completely understood. It’s not the norm for Tavern and my heart broke for this server. People just don’t want to return to work. We asked for bread and she explained it’s no longer being served. It’s sad

We were seated right away and only took about 10 minutes for drink orders to be taken. Food was good. We had a person with gluten allergy and they were well taken care of. Would like to go back and try other items.
