This was my second visit to Tavern in the Square. On both occasions the food was badly over salted and just plain bland. Probably a better place to hang out at the bar and watch TV.

The greeter or hostess was not very friendly. That should have been our first clue to leave. However the waitress was delightful so we stayed for dinner the food was ok but nothing special.

Standard American restaurant to watch sports and drink a good beer, but you can have good and plentiful food too. Excellent Cost / benefit and attending kindle!

We decided to go to Tavern in the Square and what a mistake that was. Our food was very below average but the worst part of the meal was the swarm of fruit flies hovering over our table as we tried to eat. I can only imagine how disgusting the kitchen is. Stay away from this place. There are far... More

I rarely buy at "shopping mall" food places, but I was dying of thirst and hungry so I broke down and bought lemonade and pretzel bites. And boy was I surprised. This homemade lemonade was one of the best I have ever tasted and the bites were excellent too. Sometimes it is nice to be surprised.

This was our first time at this restaurant. They have multiple locations around New England. A mix of American flair from pizza to sandwiches/burgers, salads and bowls. For beer lovers, they have a nice selection as well. For 10.99 you can get a flight of their seasonal beer. For us vegetarians, there are many options. I had a quinoa bowl.... More

The tots were amazing! Nice outside seating, inattentive wait staff, never offered refills. The burger I had was dry and tasteless, and the onion rings were inedible. Would go back just for the tots though.

The brunch buffet is amazing. Full of options and three different types seating. My parents and i have made it a new tradition to start our sunday mornings off here.

Average food, very loud for a lunch visit, parking is a pain with all of the construction going on. Can't say that I would go back or recommend

I stopped in for a late dinner and sat at the bar. The service was pretty good, a little slow getting the food out even though I only ordered a burger. The beer on tap was nice and cold and there were lots of TV's to watch.
