The food at the Ship’s Tavern was excellent. The choices were diverse and we were not disappointed in one item that we were served. Additionally, our waiter went out of his way to take care of us during our visit. He was phenomenal. Great place for food and/or drinks.

Fantastic service. Menu is a little limited. We weren't in the mood for sandwiches, which comprises most of the "mains" menu. Had the trout and chips and Cheese steak. Portions are generous! Out of this world fries and chips.

There wasn’t that much on the menu for an actual dinner. It was pricey bar food and the bar only made a certain kinds of cocktails, none were what I actually wanted. The food sides were potatoes and seasoned charred vegetables. It wasn’t the standard I’m used to receiving from the brown palace. Over all disappointing

Decent food, took forever to get drinks. It took almost 20 minutes after we ordered the first round. Whisky is overpriced for no reason. No music, or very low. Would be nice to have music or literally any sound. Wine was good.

Waited over 30 mins for a reservation for 7:30. Server was very friendly, but had too many tables. Never asked if we wanted additional drink orders.

Water refills were spot on. Never had a empty glass the whole time!

Food was excellent, though the risotto was slightly under cooked.

Reservations were required, not a big deal. The service was slow and the value was not even close to appropriate for the quality if food. Mid range bar food at best with a cost of a 4 star restaurant. Avoid if you can.

We went for our anniversary. We ordered the crab cake and claim chowder for appetizers with Chicken Marsala for the main course, which my wife and I shared. It was an enormous lot of food. No complaints there. Love the Old Fashion! Great vibe and great atmosphere

Frank our waiter was very personable and friendly and made our dinner more special.
The soft pretzel with cheese and the macaroons were as wonderful as I remembered both from years prior.
The Covid situation makes it challenging for restaurants right now and keeping that in mind the four of us enjoyed our dinner and evening. Thank you Frank.

We had the prime rib, it’s only served on Friday and Saturday, it was very good. The service and atmosphere were great. The baked potato comes with all the toppings, if you ask for them. The flourless chocolate cake was wonderful. The house old fashioned was also very good. Great experience and we are going back today for a Bloody Mary severed with bacon.

Noise level higher than we like, but we were on a couples date and would have gone to a quieter place if circumstances were different.
Prime rib meal was good, but everything on the plate had cooled off some before we got it.
Wouldn't recommend for anything romantic, though there is piano playing sometimes, but for other situations this place is good.

I would give a zero if possible. Absolutely the most pathetic excuse for a meal I have I have ever had in what is supposed to be a high end restaurant. The serving of prime rib was so thin you could virtually see through it. I found out it was actually 6 ounces. $45. 6 ounce prime rib. To add insult to injury, everything was cold. The baked potato too cold to melt the butter, the vegetables not a hint, And the “prime rib” not even warm. Awful does not describe this place. You could not pay me to go back.

They definitely need to approve their food menu. The price that I paid for the uncooked chicken wasn't worth it at all. I got the shrimp skewers, and it was old, not fresh, tasted, and smelled like it was spoiled! The place is very nice on the inside but cold and could use some new heating system! Overall, I was very discontinued with everything except the server because he was very nice!

The prime rid dinner was delectable. I am just surprised the servers were not very attentive with 6 of them and only about 4 tables full of people. The service was not bad, but we could have used a drink check in and we were not offered the traditional bread when dining her.
