My favorite place in all of Litchfield County, and there is some pretty stiff competition. The Fife offers great food, an enormous wine selection, friendly service and lively entertainment on many nights. Disappointing only on Tuesdays (it's closed).

Stopped here for a lunch break on a foliage drive. The place was humming with others doing the same, but we were seated right away and the service was swift and efficient. It was impossible not to notice the hustle of the hard-working wait staff....More

Classic food is great but its very predictable of a menu and nothing that really stood out. They had a piano which was neat but the atmosphere in general could use a makeover. Food was fresh and cooked well but nothing extraordinary.

We were recommended to go here by some locals. It is quite a large place and filled with fabulous sketchiness of people and places. Quite dark but that gave it some atmosphere. Food was good as was the service .

An absolutely delightful throwback to a time pre computers and way before "selfies," this authentic yankee charmer has never failed us. Have had lunches, brunches, dinners and their pub menu.

I had a late lunch here with my mother. The food was very good: I had the baked cod, and I was very pleased with it. The green beans that were served with it were exceptionally flavorful and cooked perfectly--not soggy and wilted, not crunchy....More

Obnoxious waiter. Even waiting 45 minutes for food to arrive, which was cold, and inedible. Was insistent that out tip of 15% was inadequate.More

We are in the process of getting a patio. Hopefully with in 2 weeks. I would imagine pets are allowed on it. Hope to see you soon!
