This is our first thought for special occasions. Their menu overs a wide range of choices. My wife loves their duck. I love their ribs. the ribs are "fall-off-the-bone' good with an excellent BBQ sauce.

This was my second time at Friar Tucks and the first was in a booth and unimpressive. This time was sitting at the bar which had a nice menu, good vibe, live music and okay cocktails. Food here is simple and not particularly innovative but...More

I was worried that the restaurant was too fancy to take a baby in with us, but without a res at 5:30, we were already turned away from one place. We got the last ‘walk in’ table. Next to the tree. Lots of separate rooms,...More

Came here to take relatives to dinner. Several people in town recommended Friar Tucks as a good place for a nice dinner. Service was very responsive. Steaks were good, but ribs were dry. Nice seasonal drink menu.

Yes, "smart casual" is probably the way to go, however, for those in shorts and a t-shirt you will not feel uncomfortable or out of place (especially in the bar).
