Great burger and taco restaurant, with other basic pub food. Quality is above average for a pub. Good service and atmosphere. And they served Dos Equis Amber draft beer (my favorite).

Had dinner here with my sister and her family. The pizzas that we tried were good and the fish and chips was good, as to be expected. My sister and I both got the Cajun chicken sandwich which to me sounds like it should be very flavorful as Cajun food should be but it was literally just pulled chicken on... More

Service was great! The food was very good but they had run out of steamed lobster, which was a bummer. But for "bar food" it was excellent and I would not call it bar food at all!!

We were very pleased to have someone on the street recommend Joshua's Tavern. Delicious lobster stew and efficient friendly service in a busy restaurant.

Happened to fall upon this terrific restaurant after we missed our turn. The lobster stew was the best I've tasted. My husband commented " I think I made a mistake ordering the lobster roll", after he saw the amount of lobster in the stew. However, he was very pleased with his lobster roll, after having a mediocre one in Bar... More

We had a couple of appetizers that were excellent and the beer was very cold. Great service! Victoria was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the food. Great college pub atmosphere and very clean. We look forward to visiting again.

Thank Erik W
