The waitress was nice but gave wrong information regarding menu items. She didn’t know what kind of Scotch that the bar had admitted that she was not familiar with alcohol. My friend ordered a vodka with tonic and it came in a water glass with a big straw I ordered a vodka with a splash of cranberry and it came in a rocks glass and cost $2.00 more.
The Scampi on a skewer didn’t have any taste of garlic/ butter at all and was served over brown rice with carrots & peas. The roasted Chicken with cavatelli pasta and veggies in garlic sauce was very salty and soupy.

We went for outside dining with a view and we got a view it was relaxing until the train came screaming by. Food was mediocre, swordfish was previously frozen over cooked and was served with frozen vegetables for a side. My dining partners meal came with under seasoned chicken over mushy angel hair pasta. Our waitress served our dinner without removing our appetizer dishes and salad plates we received very little attention at a not very busy time of 5 pm

Met a friend for lunch outside. Great food and generous portions. Outside there is some road noise but there is also nice views of gothic style white church on a hill and Victorian style home across the street. Inside looked nice too. Historical tavern feel.

Sat outside on the patio dinnertime. The tables are spaced far enough apart to feel safe. Staff wears masks and menus are single use paper. My tavern burger was excellent. The peppercorn barbecue sauce was savory, not too sweet, which I liked. My wife's salad was a very generous portion and plenty of cheese and vegetables, not just a big plate of lettuce. They had several beers on tap, which is nice since many places where business has slowed have cut down on how many kinds of beer they serve these days. Good value for the money.

We sat at our favorite spot on the porch & both servers made sure everything we ordered were perfect, as I had asked for my cod to be prepared a special way, and it was with no sacrifice of flavor or freshness. The tuna app was so good and generous I might make this an entree next time.

The apps and dessert were great. The main course were not as good. I got the beef ravioli and know where in the description does it says it has mushrooms and it was a mushroom sauce not a cream sauce like it says ... I’m not a huge mushroom fan so it was disappointing.

Would definitely recommend. We had a great table by the fireplace, on a Thursday night. We enjoyed the pierogies appetizer. I had the amazing buffalo mac and cheese that I've seen posted everywhere, and was amazed. I will return when in the area again. Happy to find such a nice place in CT.

Very cozy by the fireplace. Excellent service. The pirogies are a must to share as an app. Our guests loved the chicken marsala and parm. Teriyaki steak skewers were delicious. The best? The pistachio ricotta cake with raspberry drizzle!

We were a party of six. We had made a reservation and were seated quickly. Waitress was friendly and attentive. A large table with young birthday party celebrants was next to us so it was noisy for a while but it quieted after they left. Everyone ordered a different meal and we were all pleased with our dinners. A very pleasant dining experience.
