Went today with wife & close friend for Christmas Lunch. This is 5th or 6th time we have been here & is is consistently good. Both women had burgers with no complaint (I'm not sexist just observant) I had wedge salad with bourbon steak tips & only complaint was too large! Tips were good. Started with firecracker shrimp. Very tasty.... More

Stopped here with my girlfriend while we were visiting Mass. and as soon as we were in the door we were greeted by friendly staff. Sat down and ordered out food which was pretty quick to come out even though they were busy-- we had the fried haddock and the prime rib. The haddock was a bit lack luster but... More

While traveling and staying over night in Rowley, the manager at Country Garden Spa & Inn suggested Bradford Tavern for dinner. My immediate thought was a local typical corner "bar". I was so wrong! This is a wonderful restaurant with a full menu, comfortable atmosphere and it's family friendly. We ate in the upstairs part of the restaurant and it... More

Bradford Tavern serves very decent food in a charming pub like setting on the ground floor of an attractive building. Prices are reasonable, service is excellent and portions are ample.

I thought the food was good. My husband wasn't a fan. Bread is delicious, as was my French onion soup. Steak tips were good with a nice marinated flavor, but weren't incredibly tender. My husband got the filet and he said it was pretty dry and overcooked. Our server was excellent. The atmosphere is fantastic. I would definitely go back.

Our first visit to this restaurant was a generally positive experience. We had no wait for a table for 2, and were greeted fairly quickly by our friendly server. We had to wait a bit longer than expected for bread and oil to be brought, but it was good when it did arrive. The wedge salad was a generous portion,... More

We have driven by here so many time and every time I wonder how the food is, and we always say we should stop in there some time. Well we finally did and let me tell you we were not disappointed. We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon, just looking at the menu everything looked so good we... More
