    Our first time at the Raven Tavern. The OpenTable reservation process was very simple. We were seated right away. We were going to sit outside but the wind was a little strong, common for the area, so we chose to sit inside. Place was not crowded, but then again it was a Monday. Waitress arrived quickly, and food came out surprising fast. Everybody's meal was great. We'll be coming back.

    There is a nice view of the harbor from many of the tables. The food was average. The live music was very good, but it was too loud, and there was really no room to dance.

    Very good for a casual dinner . I like their onion rings to start with and the Shepherd's Pie for the main course. Service is usually fine, except when they are really crowded. Consistently very good food.

    Everything we have tried here has been excellent. The pies are terrific and of course one of my all time favorites is the Grown-up Grill Cheese, the blend of cheeses, tomato and the bacon make it over the top delicious. You also cannot beat the ambiance it can get a little loud if there is a band, but on a nice evening you can always sit out side and enjoy the harbor and ocean breezes.

    Always enjoy dining at the Raven Tavern. The food is delicious and the service is very good. It’s especially lovely to sit outside and overlook the water. This time though we sat inside as it was a little too breezy and chilly to sit outside. I have recommended the Raven to all my friends, and I dine there often.

    Chereen, Chereen, Chereen!!!!! Can’t say enough about our server. We had friends visiting from New York and wanted to take them to The Raven for dinner. We had reservations for inside dining due to the wind. When we arrived it was a bit noisy near the bar so we opted to dine outside. The wind had calmed down and they lit a heater for us. It ended up being chilly but here comes our server. The warm and wonderful Chereen. Her personality was so good it should be added to the menu. The food was terrific as usual and we’ll be back to see Chereen.

    Very good pub type food for a casual meal. I like their entree pies, especially the Shepherd's Pie. They also have excellent onion rings and a Manhattan Clam Chowder that is always a good way to start off a dinner. The service has been very good by friendly servers.

    Since we had our dog, we sat outside and there were plentiful heaters on the patio as well as a fire pit. You’re overlooking the Marina and the weather was perfect. I had the shepherds pie, my husband had the bangers and mash, and our friend had the steak pie. All of us loved our meals. The staff was friendly, professional, and efficient. The prices were quite reasonable.

    The food was good. Our waitress was super fast and very nice. The only snafu was seating. I thought I had selected inside dining. Our host was seating us outside when we asked about being inside. He said my reservation said outside. I was not able to check and see, but he quickly accommodated us even though there wasn’t much inside dining left. Not sure if I made a mistake or if inside wasn’t available when we arrived. Either way, it was rectified and we had a great time.
