    If you like good food and southern hospitality this is the place. It has traditional dishes that I would call comfort food.

    It’s my husband’s favorite restaurant! He says they cook steaks perfectly: he always rates other restaurants with Vintage Tavern as the standard and no other comes close.

    While the atmosphere, food, and service were very good. However, our drink orders were misunderstood and we didn’t really get what we wanted. Also, the pork belly app said it came with a qual egg, but we couldn’t find it in the dish. They were anlso out of Lemonchello. All that considered Liz was awesome and the night out was wonderful.

    Drinks and appetizers were all fabulous. Love the softshell crab bites. We missed the Guinness ice cream, as it’s no longer served for dessert.

    I’m a repeat customer and I recommend this place whenever I can. I’ve never had a bad experience with the food nor service. Sitting at the bar/high-top is always my most preferred, you’re able to enjoy the company but also interact with the staff. Can’t wait to come back.

    If you're looking for outdoor dining in a place that's "Oh, wow. We should have a photo-shoot here" kind of gorgeous, the patio dining at Vintage Tavern is THE place to go. Amongst the tables (with umbrellas) there was a waterfall, lovely gardens and landscaping, several arbors, all along the backdrop of a forest. The inside is amazing as well, if you don't mind wild animal heads (taxidermy) on the dark wooden walls of this fine dining establishment. The vibe is Hunting Lodge Meets King Arthur's Castle, but they serve Country cooking food. Sounds strange, but it works. The waitstaff were a pleasant combo of polite, attentive, patient and casual--which is saying a lot considering we had a 3 year old running around the patio. They were very accommodating to requests for mocktails and kid items. The charcuterie app was fabulous. My flounder/rice dish was a bit dry, but everyone else loved their dishes of barbecue ribs and pork chops. I advise early evening reservations. Ours was at 5:45PM, and by 6:30, the patio was filling up. We'll definitely be back. At the very least, we'll come back to the stately bar to try some of their crafty cocktails surrounded by hunting trophies. Hey, this is Suffolk, after all.

    As always, the food, service, and atmosphere were all superb during our most recent visit to Vintage Tavern. We’ve been frequenting Vintage for 6 years and have yet to find something we weren’t happy with. Highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for stellar food and service!
