We love this restaurant and visit it quite frequently. Their Whacky Wednesday menu offers a prime rib or steak combo with several side choices for $22. Comes with soup bar and salad. Great value. Regular menu selections are varied and I usually order off that menu. I've enjoyed their shrimp scampi, interesting chicken dishes and appetizers. Staff is friendly and... More

I have been to the tavern several times and was never impressed with the food. I returned because I heard that new owners had taken over and most importantly they we going to have "buck a shuck". The ad which was on the front page of our local shoppers guide read, and this is verbatim "Wednesday only 2:-5: pm only... More

We have eaten here many, many times. Have always had a spectacular meal. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. The portions are huge and always perfectly cooked. Try the mussels on the appetizer menu.... They could be an entire meal by themselves!!!! 5 Stars!!!

Haven't been to the Tavern in years. A bit out of the way unless you are from northern RI or traveling thru the area. In any case, Service was very good, quick , courteous. Nice touch with warm rolls and pop overs. Limited choice on salad dressing but house honey balsamic was tasty. Also a cream of broccolli soup on... More

Large portions, delicious food, new twists on classic dishes. Keep an eye out for their weekly and seasonal specials. My fav is their short rib raviolis in prime rib gravy. Absolutely delicious.

Dave and the staff always do a great job with the menu. There are the standard everyday items on the extensive menu, and there are always specials. Enjoy a cocktail from the lounge while you partake of an appetizer or maybe a beer from a long list of available brews. Look around while in the building, it is said to... More

Tavern on Main,very good food in the heart of Chepachet. Been going here for years and never a disappointing meal. The atmosphere is very Colonial( it was Stagecoach stop back in Colonial times). And supposedly haunted. Best to call ahead and make reservations.
