The restaurant and bar is quaint and comfortable. There are plenty of choices on the menu and everything is delicious! If the bar is full, there's another one upstairs!

Bradford Tavern has a wide offering on their menu and at reasonable prices. They have upscale martinis and beer alike, they offer a nice kids menu, plenty of decently sized appetizers, and a higher end entree selection as well. A Tavern is a good way to describe the main dining area, but they also offer a large, beautiful bar with... More

Good variety of settings, including a sit-down dinner, bar (casual), function rooms and family friendly. Great food, good portions, good variety. I highly recommend Bradford Tavern!

I was at Bradford Tavern recently for dinner. I had a great meal with a few friends. They have a nice bar area and some great dinner deals. It's a nice local restaurant with a warm atmosphere and attentive wait staff. Give it a try.

My fiance and I went to the Bradford Tavern yesterday for lunch. We sat at the bar, as we always love to do. We sat for more than 10 minutes waiting to be recognized and greeted with a hello! There were 2 waitresses "working the bar". One fiddled around with the remote for the television. The other socialized with two... More

Went today with wife & close friend for Christmas Lunch. This is 5th or 6th time we have been here & is is consistently good. Both women had burgers with no complaint (I'm not sexist just observant) I had wedge salad with bourbon steak tips & only complaint was too large! Tips were good. Started with firecracker shrimp. Very tasty.... More

Stopped here with my girlfriend while we were visiting Mass. and as soon as we were in the door we were greeted by friendly staff. Sat down and ordered out food which was pretty quick to come out even though they were busy-- we had the fried haddock and the prime rib. The haddock was a bit lack luster but... More

While traveling and staying over night in Rowley, the manager at Country Garden Spa & Inn suggested Bradford Tavern for dinner. My immediate thought was a local typical corner "bar". I was so wrong! This is a wonderful restaurant with a full menu, comfortable atmosphere and it's family friendly. We ate in the upstairs part of the restaurant and it... More
