We dine the tavern side about twice a month, the food is the best, never a bad meal. If your lucky enough to be there when they have mom's spinach pie, it's a must get, yum! The service is great, great atmosphere and friendly. We also like the live music that starts at 6.

I have been there many times over the last 10-12 years - before their "make-over" - never had a bad meal and most were very good but the pricing for Hanson, MA was expensive - after their "make-over"- the bar side (more cozy / friendly) was expanded - the bar menu became a good value (mostly lunch portions - which...

I've dined there a numbers of times and it has always been consistently great! There are always delicious specials as well as the main menu items. The seafood really is exceptional, but who wouldn't love their Short Rib Stroganoff. I'll have one of everything please!

Excellent menu choice. From burgers to seafood you cannot go wrong at the Olde Hitching Post. Weekends they serve breakfast great food for the price.

We drive by all the time but have never gone in. What a delightful surprise! The short ribs were melt in your mouth delicious, in a reduced red wine sauce. The chef can actually make a great risotto as well! My husband loves pubs so we sat in the pub side. If you want a quiet, fancy dinner, the other... More

The rehearsal dinner venue cancelled at the last minute. Enter Olde Hitching Post to save the day. They had room for our group of 40. (Although that was really good luck - they're usually booked well in advance for weekend functions.) Despite the short notice, they were absolutely wonderful to work with. We were treated very well and the food... More

Went to The Olde Hitching Post for dinner to try a new place. It was just O.K. We both ordered the Seafood Scampi Casserole which was good & was a good portion but could have had more flavor, it came with potato and vegetable. Our server seemed disinterested,she never asked during the meal how everything was, looked confused when I... More

We visited this restaurant after the service and burial of my parents ashes in Fern Hill Cemetery. My nephew was dressed in his Marine uniform to honor his grandpa, a veteran of the Korean War. The owner was so generous and my nephew's meal was on the house to thank him for his service. We enjoyed our food very much.... More

Cute little place, looks like its been there a while. Main dining area looks a little fancier than it really is. Also looks a little dated, but the bar area has been remodeled. Food s very good, we had meatloaf, cheeseburger club and stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. All tasted good and were served promptly and hot. Service was quick... More
