I'vehad a coupon from restaurant.com for some time so thought we'd try the place tonight. Arrived early around 5:20 and the bar was full and looked like no one would be leaving anytime soon so we sat at a table in the pub. One side near the piano smelled musty so we moved to the other side where th fireplace... More

The atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. The wait staff was efficient but a bit slow. Dinner was okay. Had Seared Salmon that was delicious. The burger was simple and not the best quality. The Bacardi and Coke was very strong but the other drinks were good. We went on a Friday night and it was full but not crowded and... More

Vent here a Saturday night, place was quite full but we got a table for two quickly. The menu offers the standard American restaurant selection of burgers, sandwiches, pasta, soups, meat etc. They also offer a nice selection of dinner specials, sadly was a number of them sold out this night. Food is good and well prepared but for us... More

First off, the restaurant is beautiful on the inside and provides a wonderful atmosphere. There is a large selection of breakfast foods available that varies so you don't always get the same things. My favorite are the cheese blintzes! There's also a nice selection of other foods, some of which are made to order - I think it was chicken... More

Visited here for Father's Day brunch to try it out. Place does not look like much on the outside sitting on desolate Route 1 in Plainville on the way to Attleboro on a large lake. Once you step inside you will feel like you stepped inside a late seventies/early eighties old school restaurant complete with exposed wood beams, white Xmas... More

We were looking for a breakfast place as we had come to MA for a funeral the day before and no idea where to eat. We came upon the tavern completely by accident and decided to give it a try. We did not know that they would by serving a Mothers Day brunch. We were told that a reservation was... More

My family treated me to a fabulous Mother's Day brunch here yesterday. Reservations were made accordingly so when we arrived, we were seated right away at a really nice window side table. I don't understand the mediocre reviews. This place is far from mediocre! Not only is it located along a nice lake, the food is top notch along with... More

First opened January 2, 1996 the Tavern quickly came to be a staple for the locals and a destination for the out of town visitors. Between the homey and inviting atmosphere created in the light of the warmth of our home and the delectable dishes presented with portions true to the meaning of home cooking hospitality, it is no wonder that the Tavern From Tower Square remains on the map as one of the areas most consistent, most affordable and most enjoyable restaurants to enjoy day after day, year after year.
