My husband and I dined here on our anniversary. There aren't a lot of restaurants open on a Monday, and we were happy to get a reservation here on short notice. Bowman's Tavern is in a lovely area, surrounded by large trees on the periphery. It has a neat and somewhat understated exterior, but inside the decor is fresh, textural... More

We come here somewhat frequently and have never had a bad meal. I've reviewed it before, and can only say again that this restaurant serves consistently excellent food and the service is among the best we have ever received, and we've dined around the world. It is always busy, and reservations are required, but we never feel rushed. Just a... More

Wanted to find out what all the buzz was about this place. After several attempts to attain reservations over a few weeks I got lucky and called right after someone cancelled. The four of us were seated in the bar area at one of the high tops directly next to the stage. Needless to say we were concerned that any... More

Such good selections and nightly live music make this a wonderful restaurant to visit! There are options for the super health conscious, for those who want a delicious burger, and everything between!

This is a quaint, remodel d and refurbished old tavern that seems to be a grand place to hang out for drinks and a live piano player. And it's also a great spot for very good comfort as well as eclectic food. We've been s verbal times in the past few months since rediscovering this place and find the food... More

The food is average though the crab cakes are a little better than average. The bar scene can get a little noisy especially with the sing alongs. Good wait staff.

Nice local tavern with good food (better than Tavern might imply). More of a local crowd than the nearby tourist restaurants in downtown New Hope. Fun live music with some occasional sing along. Friendly staff. Hope it doesn't get over crowded! In fairness probably 5 stars given the price and category, just not "5 stars" if that implies fancy

Have had a lot of good meals there. Wouldn't go for date with special menu like Mother's Day. Need to make a reservation for Friday or Saturday night 1 to 2 weeks in advance.
