My wife and I had dinner here at 6pm on a Saturday in Sept. 2016. We were first time visitors to the Continental Tavern, and we liked it. Outdoor dining looks nice, on the deck that rings the building, but we chose to sit indoors on a chilly evening. The restaurant filled up while we were there. It's a large menu with lots of choices, mostly American fare and meats. I ordered chicken pot pie for dinner ($16). It was not special. My wife had a pork loin dish with mashed potatoes ($17) and she liked it very much. Dinner prices are reasonable. We paid about $42 plus tip for our entrees and a beer. We liked the atmosphere. It's not fancy or formal, but it feels historic and somewhat classy. The place feels like an authentic small-town gathering place, but with some tourists as well. There were several families with children at this early hour. Everybody seemed pretty happy here, including us. I would go back to the Continental in Yardley.

Have been going to the Continental Tavern since it opened (it was originally a disaster; bad food and a bar fly joint). It changed hands, was remodeled (twice), and the food and the bar improved expotentially (better than the chains). 3 years ago or so the menu changed and prices were raised and portions reduced, substantially. We stopped going until recently. The food was good, as well as the service. We're still concerned about the overall value given the higher prices and will go infrequently.

Good tavern in the heart of Yardley, PA. Wide selection on the menue from burgers to seafood and steaks so you are sure you will find something you like. A large front porch for outdoor dinning when the weather cooperates, but indoor seating when not. Good size neighborhood bar if you are going for drinks or just want a cold one while waiting for a table. This spot has strong local appeal and gets very busy on Friday and Saturday evenings so don't count on immediate seating at those times. Most of the rest of the week, you can get prompt seating without reservations.

I went here with a group of friends for lunch several times. It is a beautiful old historic building right in 'downtown' Yardley at the light and 2 blocks from the Delaware River. They do have a bar, but we did not have drinks. We had lunch fare and I think the favorites were the pulled pork and the crab cake sandwiches. They also have great fries, old bay seasoned fries, and sweet potato fries. We had a group of 8 of us once and it was a little crowded, but the place and the food made up for that. They are open every day and have a happy hour Mon- Fri with specials on the weekend too. They do a good lunch business and luckily, they have sufficient parking on site. I have not been here for dinner but if it is as good as lunch, it would be worth it.
