Food is really good a bit on the high side but portions and quality are there. Probably should make reservations on weekends. Always packed and excellent pizza

We arrived for a late lunch on a Monday & despite many open, clean tables in the dining area, the two of us had to wait 10-15 minutes to be seated. Our waitress was attentive & friendly, but that didn't make up for the wait...More

If it were a tad bit higher notch, it would be attractive and project more quality. It’s gone from early American historical gem to a so so eatery. I remember it as the historical romantic Cooks Tavern! The food is well above par, as we...More
