We were driving through Beverly and stopped by for dinner. It was Sunday night and the line went out the door but the hostess was able to seat us right away because we were a party of two ( and the others were families).our server was friendly, attentive informative and courteous. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We left happy and sated.

Thank you Karen for the great review! Sunday we offer kids eat free so we tend to get a lot of families. I am happy you were able to get a table quickly and you enjoyed the food and service. Come back next time you are driving through!

Kind regards,

I was staying in the area and happened across the Hale Street Tavern. I was greeted warmly by Tara the bartender. I wasn't sure which wine to try and she promptly encouraged me to try both. Between that and the information she gave me about both wines, I was able to make my selection. The potstickers rival any other restaurant/pub and their scallop risotto was to die for! Large scallops perfectly seared with a seasoning I've never tasted before. All on top of a bed of risotto with corn and asparagus. Another recommendation from Tara.
I liked the place so much that I went back the next night for dinner. It was hoping as sushi was on special that night! Although I didn't have the sushi the people seating next to me said ti was great! I ordered the fish taco and once again Hale St Tavern didn't disappoint.
Good customer service, relaxed atmosphere, great food...what else can you ask for. Two thumbs up here!

This is a local New England restaurant at it’s best. Our table ordered a variety of food choices from Haddock sandwiches to steak tips and all were delicious!. Our waitress was so attentive and gave us time to visit, but was right there when we needed to order! If you are visiting the North Shore and want to eat with the locals this is your place!

All the food was perfect! We shared edamame that was a great starter. Lightly salted and cooked just right. They offer a variety of oysters to select from and where they are harvested. We were pleased with the ones from Duxbury.
We shared a salad with chicken. The greens were fresh and the chicken was tasty. They had a special strawberry, basil margarita that was amazing!! I was concerned it might be sweet and syrupy, to my delight it was a little tart and infused with flavor.
The atmosphere & service were fabulous. We will definitely go back!
