We went to the bar for appetizers and drinks on a busy night and the two young girls behind the bar were very overwhelmed and short/rude with their customers. The food started out great here, but has since taken a dip in quality. It's hard to put a finger on exactly what they're lacking but with the myriad of amazing... More

This was my first visit and honestly was surprised at the menu selection, expecting it to be more like a steak and burger place. The selection offered is mostly Italian, and boy, do they know their stuff!! I had the Bolognese, and FINALLY, a restaurant that knows how to prepare it to perfection!! Other menu items ordered were the Carbonara,... More

met my cousins here for Sunday lunch. Menu has everything from grinders to pizza to pasta. Wine selection was good and food was delicious. Waitress was not the best despite. resturant not being overly busy. Atmosphere allows for easy conversation to be heard,

Due to some kitchen issues, there was a very limited menu, but I still enjoyed my salad very much. Caprese with grilled chicken. Staff were very attentive & friendly. I was visiting with an old friend & we spent a long time catching up & enjoying the ambiance. Never felt rushed to leave.

I found First & Last Tavern to be somewhat average in terms of the food and cocktails. Nothing stellar and nothing dismal. Drinks ordered included Sicilian Kiss and espresso martini. One of the drinks my friend asked for could not be made due to a shortage of ingredients. She is particular, so most people may not have this issue. I... More

Their food is disappointing, but the staff is nice. Bathrooms are large with many stalls. Full bar and is wheelchair accessible and conveniently located on main St.

Enjoy going here once a month usually on a Friday night after work. On our recent visit we had a cheese pizza topped with mushrooms which was as good as you can get. Service is solid and it is hard to beat the complementary focaccia bread and olive oil as you wait for you main course and or pizza.

Honestly disappointed. I ordered chicken parm which tasted like frozen rubbery chicken. I never send food back but I sent this. I never got the salad which was supposed to come with my dinner. My drink came after the appetizer? To make matters worse, the front staff doesn't understand how to split a bill. The waitress was nice but this... More

My party of four waited for over an hour for our meals to arrive. The food tasted good, but the waitress seemed to be hiding the entire time. There were only two other tables of people occupying the place while we were there. It took forever to get our food. We even had to start leaving the table in order... More
