We celebrated our anniversary with dinner at the Rye Tavern. They only take reservations for inside the restaurant. The outdoor seating area is a first come, first seated option. The outside table/seats are taken by late afternoon and the wait can be up to 2 hours. The outside gardens are beautiful with flowers and plantings. Plenty of bees humming around, enjoying all of the flower nectar as well. We made a reservation for inside, knowing we may not be able to get a table outside. We sat inside and had a great server Courtney for our evening. We started off with a Habanero cocktail [$12] and a Martini [$11]. For starters, we shared Stuffed Mushrooms [$15] and a Special Garden Green Salad [$13]. Our dinner entrees were a Scallop Special [$25] and a 12 oz Strip Steak [$32] were scrumptious. We both ate every drop on our plates. The meal was finished off with a sweet treat 'Poke Cake' [$9.00] which our server recommended and it was so tasty. Our special dinner was a bit on the expensive side with additional cocktails adding to the bill total = $183.00. We enjoyed walking around the garden after dinner to see the fresh vegetables/herbs grown and served daily. We always enjoy a nice meal, but make sure your wallet is full.

Very unique. Quaint location. Ate outside perfect evening. Great drinks, great entrees and great desserts. Scallops, steak and lobster dishes delicious. Everything was perfect except extremely pricey.

Had heard several good things and the history / location is appealing. Overall, glad we visited but won't race back.
Hostess was adorable and welcoming. Service after that was ok, just ok.

Brussels sprouts appetizer was really good! Humus board was also good and interesting.

Clam chowder comes with an interesting twist...won't spoil it here but suggest you try it.

Then the let down hit....
Entrees were just fair. All around, just fair.

Not very friendly place to visit. Website said open at 4, but when we arrived they said the bar is open at 4 and restaurant is open at 5. So we waited until 5 and looked at the menu...not too much for us in their offerings except for a hamburger and we could go anywhere for that. Love the pub style decor and outdoor patio. Inside restaurant was also too warm for dining and be comfortable. This is more of a place for drinking and enjoying the garden.

Oh, how I wanted to love this place. It's close to home, with an interesting beer list AND outdoor seating. And the food was (mostly) good, as I'd heard. But even for us - not exactly demanding diners - the service was distractingly poor. The server was friendly and honest, which I liked, but she was also largely absent. Had to ask for bread (everyone else seemed to get it without asking). Had to wait repeatedly for water. A dinner that should have taken 90 minutes took 2 hours, due to gaps in service. The carrot ginger soup was lovely, but the oysters were lso-so, and the adorable dessert - a S'mores brownie in its own wee cast iron pan - was barely warm. Our table for two by a window was next to some kind of compromised floorboard, so that every time someone walked by, it shook and dipped. There were many empty tables - why seat anyone there? I will go back at some point, but I'm in no rush.
