What happened to this historic destination? I'm not sure if we just hit them on several bad days, but the food seems to have gone downhill over the past year. Also, the place seems less kept than in prior years. Their menu underwent a dramatic change at about the same time the quality and atmosphere began their slide. The Tavern... More

Great spot for lunch or dinner. Have ordered many different items off their menu and everything is always great. Love their salads with their special salad dressing. Always check their specials. The location is very rustic and parking can be a challenge some days but well worth it.

I visited Tavern of Northfield with my granddaughter and her boyfriend on a cold, wintery Monday. The place they wanted us to visit wasn't open on Mondays, so we looked around and this restaurant (that they hadn't tried yet) was open.

Spent the evening at the Archer House and had breakfast the next morning before heading home. Good food and reasonable prices! Heard they also had really good prime rib on Saturday evenings, but looked really busy for supper, so didn't get a chance to check that out this time. Would definitely recommend eating there again!

I've been with one friend and our entire family. Service is excellent. Food never disappoints. Love the salmon entree! Small though! Plan ahead for bigger parties than four or five!

Was excited to visit since I had heard many good things about this restaurant. Arrived for lunch at 11:00. Was told by waitress since the kitchen is changing over from breakfast to lunch it will be a little longer for food. Ordered the Tavern Bovine Dunker with the Tavern Potatoes. The sandwich is a french dip. When it arrived my... More

The sausage and biscuit gravy was the best I have ever had and I have had a lot. I have only been there for breakfast, but the supper menu looked mighty good as well!

Stopped for breakfast with a friend. We both had the eggs Benedict. Eggs were done to perfection and hollandaise was delicious! Service was a bit slow, but they were very busy. I think they need more servers!

This was a nice restaurant in the area. The room was a bit crowded and loud, but the service and food were good.

Thank Jane S
