Came for Mother's Day lunch and, despite being busy, the service was impeccable, food came out fast and was perfectly to order and delicious! We will definitely be back!

Mother’s Day brunch was delicious. I had the quiche and simple salad special and it was everything I hoped it would be. We sat outside and it was such a cute and safe atmosphere!

We felt the dining experience here was acceptable but average. The entree prices are a bit steep for such a casual place. Handheld sandwiches like burgers are priced reasonably but be prepared for $25-35 for entrees. We felt our server was never truly invested with our dining experience. He never offered us a second round of cocktails and our used plates sat on the table for a long while before he cleared them. No desserts were offered to us either. There are many other options of eateries in the area to choose from so we won’t be in a hurry to return.

I made reservations for a Saturday night and boy am I glad I did. They were turning people away at the door. The buttermilk pan fried chicken that I ordered was amazing! It came with spatzle, asparagus and a light gravy. My friend had the red wine braised short ribs and said it was delicious. I can't wait to go back!

Great place. Had wine to start. Ordered the beef stew with wonderful biscuits and a haddock sandwich with fries. Good food and good wait staff. Highly recommend. We are in the dining room and the bar area was quite busy!

Delicious meal & friendly service! The patio doesn’t quite have the charm that other outdoor dining spots have managed to create, but it was still very enjoyable and we’ll gladly come back.

The restaurant was clean and the hostess was friendly. The food quality was not as good as it usually is. Mainely the server was inattentive. We asked him twice for bread service. He told us that he would bring it but we didn’t receive it and he didn’t apologize for forgetting to bring it. He didn’t return to our table after we received our meal to ask how they were. We had to ask for drink refills.

The experience was great and the ambiance was great also. We had a wonderful server and very tentative. As tasty as the food was, maybe the french dip sandwich doesn't have to be as well done as it was and the onions were very done (burnt) but none the less the sandwich was eaten because it was so good.

Reservation on OpenTable, we arrived at restaurant early, I called from the parking lot and restaurant was able to accommodate us. Service was great; two days after dinner there I am done with leftovers tonight. We’ve been before and we’ll go again.

The waitstaff was very attentive and did a great job following covid protocol. The food was okay. My husband really liked his beef stew. I had the steak and was a bit disappointed. We would try the Foreside Tavern again - maybe for outdoor seating.

This restaurant never disappoints. Great food at reasonable prices - and excellent sanitation and social distancing during Covid-19. Everything I have tried here over the years has been awesome but my go-to dish is the Cobb salad with salmon or chicken. Big portion and very filling for a salad! Nice outside patio in the warmer months and plenty of on-site free parking. Great desserts and coffee, too!

Pleasant friendly staff seated us promptly upon arrival. Tables are separated as required for safety. Observed the cleaning and disinfecting of tables to be thorough each time. Our order was taken promptly and food was delicious. Overall experience could not have been better. Obviously a well managed establishment.
