    The main dining area could use some sprucing up to make it more inviting and comfortable. Wonderful lunch though!

    Overall a very good experience. Wait staff was attentive. Only flaw on this trip to Foreside was their usually excellent fries were undercooked. The rest of the food (there were three of us) was excellent. Always recommend this restaurant.

    We love being at the bar with Jessie! The staff is very good to us and the food quality is consistent and the menu reflects the tastes of the season. Just an overall friendly vibe. Hard working and attentive staff.

    The food at the Tavern is always excellent, whether it’s a salad, sandwich or entree. Their menu changes seasonally and always reflects what is available and fresh. We return there over and over, whether it’s gathering with family or grabbing takeout on the way home and we are never disappointed. Be sure to get the sweet potato fries - they are the best!

    We frequent the Tavern on Sundays. This was not a good night. Last few times I've ordered a martini it's not full. I realize the prices on things and that is not an issue, but at least fill it up. Second my husband coffee was Luke warm. The nachos were average. My salad came out wrong twice. I refused it the second time. My husbands Cobb was not the best. Avocado was brown, chicken was dry. They did take my salad off but not once did a manger come over to say sorry, what can we do.. I hope this is not what we are going to get in the future.

    Delicious salmon burgers! Outside was lovely but not sure there was quite enough help as it took about 15 minutes for someone to come to the table. That being said, when we finally did get service, he was very good and friendly.

    Are at a high-Top in the bar area. Swordfish and rice with green beans and GF had a salmon salad over baby spinach. Good sized portions and fresh. Accompanied by cristalliano & a ranch water. Finished with Lemoncello cake. Service attentive but not obsequious. Prices moderately high - but Falmouth, Maine in high season.

    Foreside Tavern is a really great place to eat. The food is tasty and delicious. The ambiance is nothing particularly special but quite pleasant. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff. Every individual there is so friendly and though usually out straight with customers, takes the time to make you feel special and well taken care of. Love it there!
