I'm ashamed to say how few times I've been to the Tavern considering how close it is. Tonight, we had dinner there and it was awesome. The restaurant has stone walls and you feel as if you have stepped back in time. The room is cozy and inviting. Service is excellent. The staff is warm and caring. Then there's the... More

Good service. Got pub food - burger, fish, fries, beer, caesar salad. No complaints. Burger in particular was excellent. Would go back. Solid beer and spirits list. Would definitely... More

The menu at the ffrost Sawyer Tavern is diverse, modern, and traditional all at once. The quality of food is superb and there's something on the menu for everyone. My only regret is that I couldn't try more things on the menu!

...darkish and antique with good seating arrangements for a small area so no one had to squeeze by or interrupt others to get to seating. Food was very good, I splurged on the 12 oz. steak and with all the rest of the meal was sorry as I couldn't finish it all! A very decent brunch that came with our... More
