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.

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.

Has a real tavern feel. Food is excellent for what it is. Not a choice for fine dining, but if you are looking for good food in a casual, fun atmosphere the Brook Tavern is a great choice.

We find Brook Tavern to be friendly, fun, and the food is delicious. Two of us had the salmon which was excellent, one had the chicken which also was good but slightly over cooked in parts and one person had the burger which was “just right”. The service was very good. Almost too attentive for four people who are trying to catch up but that is not a big complaint. Just maybe one or two too many interruptions into an enthusiastic conversation.
We love this restaurant. We moved here 3 months ago and it has evolved to be our favorite. I wish your bar area was larger. I guess that is my only real complaint. Love the music on Monday night.
