The Crown Tavern has been one of my favorite places to eat since it first opened. The outside seating is an oasis in the middle of Manchester. Being vegan, it’s nice that they offer vegan cheese and vegan pepperoni (!) for pizza.

I would highly recommend the Crown Tavern. The service was great as was the food. We loved the Patio! It was nice to be able to exit right through the gated fence that surrounds the patio. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the patio and how the space was set up. We weren’t all squished together as is the case with most outdoor venues. We will go again for sure!

We chose to sit indoors because it was a little humid out, but boy did we regret it. It was beautiful out there, and frigid inside. We asked to be moved, but they didn't have anywhere to move us, so we had to stay by the vent. We tried to carry on and put it out of our minds. We started with the candied bacon, and OMG it was so delicious. I can only hope the ones I make this weekend after being inspired can come out that good. I would go back again just for that. I made what I call the mistake of ordering the meatloaf sandwich instead of the Delmonico. Not sure what I was thinking, but the description of the meatloaf sandwich was so enticing. The only issues with it were that the gravy had more onions in it than gravy, so I couldn't really dip, and it had a sweetness to it, or a spice or something that just wasn't my favorite. I think the steak would have been the better choice. But the meatloaf sandwich was $15 and the steak was $33 so I was torn. My husband go the cedar plank salmon, and when it came out he was very happy with the cook. He liked his dish very much. I only rated low on value because we ordered a sandwich, an entrée, the bacon appetizer (maybe 5 or 6 slices of bacon) and 2 drinks and it was $70. Every time I do the math, I come up with what should have been about $55. Oh well, I absolutely loved the atmosphere and the decoration; the light fixtures are gorgeous. The location is a good too. We'll more than likely come back at some point.

Anniversary. Everything was great. Could have been attended to sooner at the bar, but it was busy and there were two bartenders. We are going back in a couple of days for happy hour.

One of our favorite places to go for a laid back evening out. The food is incredible. Usually get their amazing burger, but tried the hot chicken Cobb salad this time and was blown away. It was delicious. Companions got the salmon and the steak frites, and everyone was very happy. Our favorite waitress, Primrose, is always attentive and knowledgeable, and makes the evening an even more enjoyable experience.

I have been to the crowne tavern a number of times. This last visit wasn’t up to par. My guess is that they are understaffed at present. The food was very good as always. It took a long time to get our drinks and we never received the two appetizers we ordered. The waiter was very apologetic, but I don’t think the problems were on h
