We started with Bloody Mary's and they lacked horseradish and spices. My wife's French Toast was burned black on one side and they had the nerve to plate it, burnt side down and serve it as though it was edible. I had Eggs Benedict and the muffin was not toasted (yuck), one egg cooked to a hard yolk, and hollandaise... More

Five of us visited this past Sunday for a most delicious meal! This is our 3rd time and it seems to now be established as our yearly pick! Our server, Jensen, was social and engaging and offered excellent choices! Favorites included the rabbit appetizer and the scallops with the most amazing polenta! No one had room for desserts although they... More

Early dinner reservations. Seated promptly. Enjoyed piano player on this Sunday visit. Was going to have the strip steak but as I watched the last one being served, I was told they had just run out. I was a bit disappointing however I chose mussels as an appetizer and a roasted leg of lamb sandwich with portobello mushrooms, whipped goat... More

Second time to this comfortable, cozy restaurant. Great food, excellent service provided by Candace. The menu is varied and provides multiple choices from soup (try the New England Clam Chowder) and a sandwich to full blown entrees. Mandatory valet parking on our Friday night visit (just so you know) but the valet service was fast and efficient. It's amazing how... More

Our b&b recommended we eat at Bowman's Tavern. They were on the money. We wanted to view a baseball game in the bar area. The service and food was great. We enjoyed calamari, steamed mussels, and the hummus. My wife thought the French Gimlet was tasty. Good value! Super Happy Hour!

Instead of going through the hassle of driving and parking right in New Hope, friends and I went to this low-key place just a few minutes outside the commercial strip. We were thrilled: nice beer list, food that was fresh and tasty and beautifully served but with no big fanfare. I was back yesterday and had a hot lamb and... More

Lively in the bar area and in the dining room on a Friday night. Enjoyed the poached pear salad and a juicy cheeseburger with fresh french fries and onion rings. People around us were enjoying their steaks, Philly Steak sandwiches and appetizers.Nice selection of wine and beer. Friendly service. The singers at the piano near the bar were terrific and...

We always enjoy our visits to Bowman's Tavern either on date night or as an easy dinner out with the kids. Fun atmosphere and always filled with people (in a good way!). Their black & blue burger is one of the best we have ever had, hands down, and is consistent! It is hard not to order it every single... More

In town visiting family looking for a casual place with live entertainment. Read the reviews on trip advisor and choose this place. It was perfect, just what we were looking for the food was excellent and the music was great.
