Great food, wait staff were very attentive, knew the menu well. Great for families too. I highly recommend and can't wait to go back.
Staff was attentive and helpful. Oyster mushrooms were delicious. The chicken pasta dish with broccolini was yummy! Hand sanitizer everywhere and waitstaff was mindful of COVID-19 protocol. Glad we went. Will go again.
Town Tavern has been around in Arlington for some number of years, so you'd think they had enough time to figure it out and get everything right. Well, they did! My team has been there three times in the last nine months (always for lunch) and we've always been surprised at how well everything worked out. The menu selection has a variety of things so there's almost always something for everyone. The servers are pros and recently handled the partial opening or whatever we're calling it with great skill and ease. Big windows open wide onto Massachusetts Avenue so even if you're inside it's much like being outside, minus the rain. But there is also a bar with enough screens to keep sports enthusiasts happy or at least (these days) hopeful. Town Tavern has a feel to it that can't exactly be described other than finding yourself thinking about the next time you'll be able to go.
Great service, food and location. We eat here all the time
Outdoor dining was great! Our server was terrific!
We didn't have a great experience here. After ordering $70 of food, got rushed out after 45 minutes (the reservation was at 5pm, we were asked to place our last round of drinks at 5:50pm) and told they had to clear way for the next guests, because I guess COVID? But having spent a bunch of money to be rushed out after less than an hour is pretty silly, considering we made reservations in advance through OpenTable.
Coronavirus hurting small businesses. Town Tavern is trying to get back up and running. Small Neighborhood restaurant. Happy to help them get back to their new “normal”.
Such a great “home “ bar. Perfect for any day of the week. Nice cocktails and the food is great quality.. Fries!!
Overall,3 Stars. Big disappointment was $11 for a pint of Lord Hobo Boom Sauce beer - Ridiculous.
Amazing burgers and fries for most of our party!
One salmon which was also yummy
Friendly server and very friendly accommodating owner.
All around it was a positive experience
The food was awesome, the service was great. I will definitely go again. The drink was also good.
Wonderful time!! The servers and owner was great and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Food is excellent!!
Couldn’t have been happier with our server,Roberto. Food was amazing. Very deceiving from the outside. Had apps, dinner, drinks & dessert at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend & definitely going back. Can’t wait
The food was very good. The staff was accommodating to our large party. No one gave us a hard time about having two small children in our party. In fact, the cook doted on them and brought them extra treats. I would totally recommend eating here.
Always have a great meal at Town Tavern and always feel welcome. Staff are polite, attentive and professional. Look forward to going back soon.
The menu is very eclectic. We ordered a mix of appetizers and all were better than expected; some very good. Seasonings on everything were interesting and often a bit spicy, which I like. Taquitos were my favorite. My husband especially liked the French Dip, served in a steamed bun. We also had their hot and spicy BBQ wings and a special they call toppers, which had a nice mix of basil, squash, mozzarella and other things on individual little skewers. Our waitress was very helpful and enthusiastic.
the food is excellent, the service is spotty. we waited 15-20 minutes for our drinks and it was a long time before a server checked in on us.
The food was great and the service was outstanding.
Fantastic dinner for eight at Town Tavern. First time there and I will most definitely be back. All eight diners loved their meals and the service couldn't have been better. Our waitress was Jamie (fantastic) and she was supported by a terrific team. Can't wait to go again!
We had a bad experience our first time. Extremely unfortunate
Nothing good about it, I’ve eaten there two times and food was not good, I won’t be going back
Good addition to the neighborhood. they should open another location in Lexington - there is a suitable property at Waltham and Mass Aves.
Our family of 5 loves Town Tavern! They are always welcoming and the food is delicious!
Delicious food, several wonderful vegetarian options.
The food was delicious, the band was great, and it was a really fun atmosphere. We had fun playing darts too.
Great neighborhood place to grab a burger or dinner. The vibe is super chill and service super friendly. Food was pretty good but nothing to write home about. We’ll be back but probably will try something different on the menu. I love that this a locally owned establishment and they constantly check up on how we were doing.
Grab a bite and head across the street for movie.
Very friendly and accommodating waitress who I believe also mixed my drink ( was there for a late lunch - meeting a friend for some Bday love) made a great Manhattan and was super attentive without hovering or rushing us. Brought out a dessert that I requested when I made the reservation through the app without me having to remind them and ruin the ‘surprise’
The Tavern Burger is my favorite. i order it every time. Ask what the tap beers of the day are.
The people in my group were not thrilled about the food. My son got the sausage and egg sandwich and said it was too greasy and didn't finish it. I got the grilled veggies and thought they were too tough and flavorless. The sauce on them was gross, like cheap salad dressing. My daughter got the pasta with chicken, and although the pasta was fine (how do you mess up pasta?), the chicken tenders were battered yet in sauce, making the outside of them soggy. My husband got the pastrami sandwich, which he said was boring, and wished it had had sauerkraut on it. My mother got the fried chicken with salad and thought the salad had little flavor. She gave most of the chicken to my stepdad. My stepdad got the Chicken Bao. It was very little food, more like an appetizer, but I think he liked it okay. In general, the descriptions of the food sounded interesting, but the food itself was not good, especially for the higher prices.
Great food a good prices. Steak fries are awesome
The haddock itself was amazing, but the flavour was diminished by putting it on a bun. The shrimp poppers were nice, but lacking in distinct flavour and spice (mostly tasted of salt). The Town Tavern burger was fantastic. The fries are a must. Service was great. It is a noisy place, but the food is worth the visit.
Labor Day lunch, restaurant slightly understaffed, excellent food
Food was OK-not great.
Service was poor. A simple lunch order for 4people took nearly 2 hours!!👎
Good food, nice service. Fries are great! Cooler by the windows.
I enjoyed everything about Town Tavern except for my food. I got the fried chicken sandwich and did not like it all. I didn’t like the sauce on the chicken and the chicken itself tasted weird (like it was undercooked even though it wasn’t). However, my dad got the ratatouille sandwich and really liked it so I would definitely go back and get something else. The service was good, our waitress was friendly, and the food came very quickly.
Great hamburger and fries—finally tried other entries and equally tasty!
It was a slow night and staff was very attentive. The ladies at the bar/front were great.
I had one of the best burgers I’ve had in a long time.
Definitely will be back.
Great place for dinner with a large or small crowd. The food was delicious and the portion size was perfect! Great staff that was able to accommodate a stroller and wheel chair. Will definitely return next time in the area!
Unusual quiet Saturday night. Service excellent and very attentive. Portions generous. Varied menu.
Band was loud Food excellent
