The food was fantastic, the waitress was very friendly and helpful. It was an enjoyable evening celebrating our anniversary.
This is the third Christmas in a row my husband and I have had dinner here. We go back every year and are never disappointed. It is a lovely place, always clean, always friendly staff, and the food is great. I am already looking forward to going again next Christmas.
This was our first night at the Brunswick Inn and Tavern. We’d seen mixed reviews, but thought we’d give it a try. I ordered the seafood risotto. It was completely cold when it first came out. The sever. was very apologetic and brought it back to be heated up...cold again..,she brought it back a third time and it was finally warm. They put a cold sauce on top of the risotto, which really doesn’t make sense for a dish that’s supposed to be hot. Our server was very attentive and polite about the whole thing, and ended up comping us for two glasses of wine. I’m not sure that we’ll return though. It was over $100 for two, and we expect more than cold, somewhat bland food for that price.
I highly recommend this place. The food is excellent and haven’t had a better dinner anywhere else in the area. Service is excellent as well. 5 stars!
My wife and I met another couple for supper and ate there for the first time. The food was good and the staff was also good. We would go back.
We had a 5:30 reservation but were not served until 6:20. Restaurant was very busy but there was a Bowdoin hockey game that night versus Colby - an old rivalry. The staff were not informed about it and made little effort to get us out on time. The wait staff was fine but the kitchen must have been backed up. Poor planning on their part. Food was OK but we had to eat so fast to get to arena that it was not a pleasant meal.
When we booked the hotel for Thanksgiving, tofurky roast was on the menu for Tday so we booked the room because of this. When we looked at the menu that Tday, there was no vegan main entree, instead they offered some kind of vegetable dish but I was not sure if the sauce had diary in it. I eat Plant Based and my partner does not, so this was important to both of us that we could have a Thanksgiving meal that we both could enjoy.
3 of us did the Thanksgiving buffet which had ample choices and was fairly priced given that it was a holiday. Main choices of turkey, ham and baked fish, with all of the usual turkey-day accompaniments all were ok. Glad i saved room for apple pie, which was the highlight of the meal. I've dined here before and enjoyed the table service (this was a self-serve buffet for the holiday) and the slower pace and less-busy atmosphere. But all in all, the staff did a fine job keeping everyone fed!
Though there were few diners and that made us concerned that the food might not be great, it was delicious! The service was prompt and efficient, the presentation attractive. It was quiet. The decor modern and simple. Overall, an excellent dining experience!
The Brunswick Tavern is very noisey, especially with Friday night and Sunday brunch live music. The wait staff are terific and always helpful and quick. The food is standard tavern/hotel fair. Hambergers, seafood risotto, pancakes and eggs. This is a small restaurant with some bar seating that uses local ingredients.
