    I had a very nice experience at Oxford House. The service was quick and friendly from start to finish. We ordered the nachos as as as starter and I have to say they were probably the best nacho platter I've ever had. The tortillas seemed very home made...I would go back just for those home made tortillas

    A decent casual place for a burger and a beer. A bit disappointed when I received the check though. My daughter had a French onion soup that was $9? Both kids has Shirley Temples; a mere $4 each? I guess I should have looked at the menu on the soup, but ice water for them both next time, a bit steep for fountain soda and a splash of grenadine!

    It was a perfect night for dinner on the charming front porch. We shared the bruschetta, which was a little on the small side, but that was ok because we were saving room for the prime rib special. Both were cooked as requested and were delicious. Not even the steamed broccoli & mashed potatoes were left on my plate (& I’m not a big mashed potato fan)! Our server was outstanding too & ensured a couple special requests were met. Thank you for a terrific date night dinner!

    Had the 6 pierogies as an appetizer which were excellent and filling. The surf and turf kabob was also very good and so were the burgers but was more rare than medium. No complaint about service. Will be back on a Wednesday for the baby back rib special.

    The appetizers are good. The entrees are NOT. I had the beef stroganoff and I can tell you that Sherlock Holmes would have struggled to find any mushrooms! There was very little sauce. It was AWFUL! My diner companion had the chicken Parmesan and said it was inedible! The sauce was much too sweet.

    We went for Easter dinner. Did not know what they would have on the menu as they mentioned it may be limited. We had lamb chops, which they don’t normally have, with mashed potatoes and broccoli. So delicious. The lamp chops had a pistachio crust on them, gave them just an extra taste which worked well. Server was wonderful, as usual. One of our favorite places. We took dessert home for later which again, perfection.

    We were looking for a Lenten Friday meal and saw fish and chips as soon as we googled the page. So on to Open Table, and we were able to book a 6 pm table for 2 on a busy Friday with no problem. We arrived and were seated immediately with our reservation. The waitress was there with menus before our seats got warm, offering drinks and a basket of hot rolls. The menu had great diverse offerings and we enjoyed seeing the various dishes come out of the kitchen. We ordered sole florentine and it was cooked perfectly and delicious. Our waitress was very attentive even though the restaurant was very busy. We definitely recommend The Oxford House Tavern and will be returning soon!

    Came in on a Saturday Night, the place was full, we were lucky enough to get a table by the large fireplace, what a beautiful setting. The food was amazing, we started with the skewers and I had the salmon. It was cooked to perfection. My wife had the Chicken special, she loved it. The service was great and we will return.

    Lively place on a Saturday night, we were lucky to get a table last minute with Open Table. Our server took a while to get to us, and when we asked about the specials, vegetable of the day, etc., she said she had no idea as she had been so busy and didn't have time to check. She probably could have answered that better vs. making it seem like we were an inconvenience for her. Our salad was good, entrees were ok - I was hoping for more flavor, but I did get a nice piece of halibut. She didn't talk directly to my 10 year old, but instead she directed questions to me about 'him' and what 'he' wanted. (He's a very mature, respectable 10 year old and perfectly capable of speaking). It was good for dinner, but not a favorite.

    Valentine’s Day at noon hour. It was a colleague’s birthday. Not crowded or even busy. But service was slow and our favorite app, pirogies, were sloppily prepared and sloppily plated. A side of mashed with teriyaki steak skewers (which were tasty) had zero flavor and were poorly presented. This experience was unusual-it makes me wonder if the chef was out that day? For whatever reason, this was not what I have previously experienced here. Hope they get it back together!
