    My husband and I were disappointed. He waited awhile to get his drink order. We asked for bread the waiter said he bring out garlic bread which never came. Then found out from server who brought food out they had no bread left. Our french onion soup was good but our entrees disappointed in the crab crusted sole was cold and felt like not cooked enough and my husband had ordered the mahi mahi which was overcooked and very small portion. Also our waiter never came over again once we placed our order. It was not a great dining experience.

    First time eating at Oxford Tavern House (Feb 2024) and it was amazing. Our waiter Mike offered to tell us about the history of the location and let us know everything is scratch made in house. We started with the Bavarian pretzels and calamari. Then our table had Luca pasta, mahi blackened mahi and the crab cod (I think that was on special that evening). Everything was amazing but our favorite was the Luca and pretzels. Can’t wait to go back.

    Great place for food & service, but we thought it was a bit pricey for lunch. We understand prices have gone up but mainly dinner choices plus price is rough.

    The atmosphere and service were outstanding. As first time guests we were made to feel comfortable and welcomed. Food was outstanding. We ordered several starters for our meal and they were delicious. The deserts were also tasty and light. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    Exemplary service. Enjoyed our meal very much. Only criticisms are our meatball appetizer could have been hotter (was cold inside) and the seafood Mac and cheese was a bit too heavy on garlic. Overall enjoyed everything and will definitely be going back.

    Don’t even bother reading any negative reviews. They just aren’t true (most reviews are great anyway - and they’re true!). Food was good, great service, atmosphere was on point (quiet, cozy, and warm) and prices were good. Whatnot to like? Go there!

    Very disappointing. Celebrated our anniversary. They were out of a few entrees and had 2 desserts to offer both of which we did not like at all. Tonic in drink was flat. Will never go back.

    Server took 15 minutes to get us a drink. Didn’t know his beer menu and handed us a hand written note about current beer. Ordered a shot of bourbon on the side of a ginger ale(we were very clear) and got a full size bourbon rocks. Never asked about appetizers. No bread or salad with the entrees. Terrible table near the front door and main aisle where everyone passes by. Terrible birthday dinner. Too many other options to go back again.

    We’ve been to Oxford house many times and it never disappoints. They have gluten-free options and/ or can modify the dish if possible.. I had the chicken Florentine and it was moist and tender and full of flavor… the service was excellent!
