We stayed at the Bristol Harbor Inn and had dinner at DeWolf Tavern. The tavern is friendly, welcoming and cosy. The menu provided plenty of options and variety. The meal and service were both very good.

My mother treated my husband, daughter and myself to dinner at DeWolf Tavern in early April. We were all very impressed with the food. In particular the seafood chowder was a big hit. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting. We can't wait to return.
