Went right in with our reservation, hostess was very friendly and talkative. Waitress was friendly, fast, and paid attention to detail. Wait staff did a wonderful job in keeping our water glasses filled and attending to any needs we had. Food was excellent, came out quick and hot. We were not rushed at all and enjoyed our experience. Only drawback was the parking. We had to park two (2) streets away but for as popular as this is restaurant is it was worth it!

The Brook Tavern never fails to please. It's my go-to recommendation for out-of-towners. I'm lucky to live nearby, so this is my neighborhood spot as well. Staff is always super friendly and professional. Great bar scene. Love the food whether it's small bites in the bar, or a full dinner in the dining room. In a town filled with restaurant choices, I find myself choosing the Brook time and time again.

Went here on a Friday night for dinner. Great bar area for a drink and to hang out. Nice dining area as well. Great, attentive service. We ordered the Filet Mignon and Ahi Tuna. Both were delicious and cooked perfectly. The bar made my favorite cocktail on request and it was perfect. Located a few blocks off Broadway, in a renovated house with a big front porch. A great spot!

Our family had a fabulous Easter brunch here. Service was perfectly attentive without being overly intrusive or overbearing—the perfect level of attention. When my super hungry son was really bummed that his French toast arrived adult style (stuffed with cream cheese and sugar, my personal version of heaven) they quickly remedied the order to a plain kids version. Will be back soon, everything was wonderful!

Would give this restaurant a solid 4 stars. Went for an early dinner on St Patrick's Day. Place was busy and the crowd was increasing as we finished dinner. Seated quickly, courteous and and speedy service. My fiance had the corned beef dinner special and gave it the thumbs up. I had the fish fry special and the fries and coleslaw were great, fish was fresh but coating ws too thick. Took most of it off as it was a bit greasy. Great neighborhood spot

We would definitely give this restaurant a second chance, even though our first experience was not great (the salmon gave my wife an upset stomach and my hamburger was just too drenched in mayo). But there are other menu items that look good and the place is fun and lively, with an attractive decor and good service. Ask for a quiet corner if a vibrant bar scene is not your thing.

We had another amazing meal at The Brook! The fish 'n' chips were delicious, as well as the ribs and salmon. The wine and beer selection had something for everyone in our party. This is one of our favorite places, and we've never been disappointed.

This was not the first time we ate at the Brook Tavern. Had an early dinner 5:30p.m. on a Saturday night during January. Hostess was very friendly. We sat in a booth which was cozy. Waitress was courteous and competent, was not pushy. Food was very good and ample portions. House wine seemed adequate. Chose not to have dessert but the coffee was fine.
Pretty good value overall. Solid restaurant would recommend!!!

The Brook Tavern is our go to restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere are superb. Weekday specials can't be beat. My Marine son ordered the full rack spare rib dinner (he eats a lot), he had a hard time finishing the whole rack. My wife ordered the hamburger, medium rare, cooked perfectly and she looooved it. I had the fish & chips, I took most of it home since it was sooooo large and I had the French onion soup, delicious. You can't go wrong with anything on their menu. Compliments to the chef.

As usual the tavern service was great. The french onion soup we both had was very good as was the bread. My wife is a filet person the the tenderloin medallions were cooked perfect and tasted great. There were 2 challenges however. The crispy 1/2 chicken was way undercooked. The appearance was a pale white. The dark meat was nearly raw but the breast was cooked. So the filet was a 5 and the chicken a 2. I debated sending it back but I didn’t want her and I to dine seperate. Also the mashed were done all prior to service as they were dark , very pasty and about 100 degrees. We had a reservation for 8:30 so it was late. None of this will turn us off from going back as it is usually much better.
