    This was our second visit, first visit during Restaurant week. Very nice place, great food, nice bar selections, and good variaty of wines and beers offered. Food we prepared and very good, would recommend all menu items we tries (Meatball, Glazed ribs, Chicken Sandwich, Deluxe Beef Burger). We sat in the back patio area, nice and warm place to be, little bright with the afternoon sun at times, but all in all a great evening.

    The service (by Emma) was excellent. We did restaurant week and the 1st and 2nd courses were excellent. If I had anything that needed improvent the "butterscotch pudding" was runny. Overall a great experience.

    Where to begin?? Worthington Tavern is a phenomenal restaurant that I wouldn’t have thought of had it not been for #RestaurantWeek. Everything from start to finish was wonderful. Sean and I found our new place. The food was full-size portions - during Restaurant Week!!! The service was great. The atmosphere was wonderful. The music was good and not intrusive. What a good night!

    The experience started out poorly. We had a toddler and were provided a booster seat without a strap (after requesting a high chair), so our toddler was insecure/slipping out of the booster during our entire time in a booth. Our food took over 40 minutes to arrive after ordering so we eventually had to request our food to go. While our food was delicious, we will not be returning as the experience was so miserable from beginning to end.

    Although our food was delicious, be aware of their prices. Our apps were almost $20 each and a glass of chardonnay was also almost $20 and it was the house chard! Service was great but it was very noisy.

    Our first visit to Worthington Tavern. Parking was a little problem, especially since I was in a walking boot and using a cane. We managed to pull in for a dropoff out front and it was a short walk to the door. The place was just starting to fill up. We were shown to our table, close to the front windows, and just in time for the end of Happy Hour. After an order of oysters ($2 each) and a pizza, we were pretty full and decided to leave it at that. My son was treated to a free piece of cheese cake for his birthday, it was good as well. The service was great, server always checking back on things. I would definitely recommend this place for lunch or dinner.

    The food was average and overpriced for the quality. The interior was nice, but really loud. We reserved online for our anniversary, but were seated in a corner table right next to the bar. Servers kept walking past us to grab drink orders. Probably won’t return.

    This restaurant was fantastic! The atmosphere was great, lively but not too loud! The smoked bourbon cocktail was delicious! Our table got one of the pizzas which was 8 slices, good size to split. We also got two burgers that were also very good! We will definitely be coming back!

    The food at Worthington Tavern was good, but my friend and I had an uncomfortable experience there. We had a reservation, had a couple drinks and had been done with our meal for 30 minutes waiting for the server who was extremely busy to order another drink so we were being patient. The host came up and basically told us that she didn't mean to rush us but they needed our table for another reservation. Then the main host came up and said he could give us 30 minutes and then we needed to leave. We were floored, after sitting there for 30 minutes waiting for our server to return and order another drink and get to go boxes we were then treated as if we were squatters. We weren't being loud or obnoxious but were treated as if we were. The main host stated that they only allocate 1.5 hours for anyone with a reservation. This is a Tavern, I am still in awe that this happened. We both live in the area and my friend had been there a couple of times before and never had this come up. The server was great, and was working extremely hard but to sit there for 30 minutes with empty water and drinks and the host didn't even ask if we needed anything when approaching. We will never go back, if this is how the Worthington Tavern is going to do business I'd rather go elsewhere.

    Very good service and food. Prices were very reasonable. Atmosphere was loud, but we could still have a conversation. Cocktails were a little inconsistent. I had two of the Blacksmith Old Fashion and the first was excellent. The second tasted completely different and not appealing at all. Overall, however I'd go back.

    It wasn’t as good as I was hoping for. My fries were cold. My friends pasta was hot in the middle and cold on the edges. Waitress kept forgetting food. I’m willing to try it again, but hopeful it will be a better visit.
