Thoroughly enjoyed dinner over the holidays at The Water Wheel Tavern. The food was good, the atmosphere was relaxing and the staff was friendly and efficient. Two different managers came during our dinner to ask if everything was as okay and if we needed anything....More

Literally just walked out two days ago. It’s been a hit or miss since day one. On our last three visits on football Sunday, if you are not a regular, well don’t expect great service. In addition who ever answers the phones/hostess, are actually rude...More

Nice little gem we found in an old 1700's farm type house. Our server was nice and courteous, and very attentive. The mac attack burger was really good, a long with the cheese platter.

Our server, Jenna, was absolutely lovely. Helpful, kind, pleasant. None of this is her fault. The veggie burger falls apart and drops out of the bun upon first bite. Not second, not third. First bite. How incredibly disappointing. Why does no one get this right?...More

This place is a wonderful local spot with two bars, live music, TVs for games and good food. It’s very casual and the bartenders are great—especially Donna! Good bar food, but also salads, and entrees. Onion soup is particularly good. Not easy to find if...More

First, they lost our reservation. The manager appeased us by buying us a round of drinks. Thumbs up for that. We ordered two appetizers--mussels and a soft pretzel. The pretzel was good; the mussels were good; however, four of them were not open. (shouldn't the...More

Visiting from NY, this was my family's choice. Went for dinner, a little early on a Saturday evening, which was good because it was soon crowded and noisy. The service was quick, friendly and professional, the owner stopped by as well. The food was ok,...More

Yes, they take reservations. I believe I stated that in my review. Hopefully if you go you will have better food and experience than we did.
