“Nice little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

This is a great place to have lunch/dinner if you are in the Kent area. My personal favorite is the Kingsley burger with fries.

“Nice - perfect for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Place definitely has that cozy, tavern feel to it. Had Belgian beers with an orange slice, the Saigon sandwich - delicious - and my friend had the burger (nothing super outstanding there). After hours of shopping and browsing, it was a nice break/service was good.

“Sweet little spot to grab dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

This tavern was recommended by our innkeepers at The Cornwall Inn. It has a great front and back patio which were packed so we say indoors in a lovely and thoughtfully decorated dining room.

We had a young girl for a server and she was great! There is a huge selection of draft and bottled beers and a nice wine list. I had a local IPA and my husband has a bottled Hefeweizen. For dinner we had fried pickles for an appetizer which were delicious and really lightly fried. I had a Singapore sandwich with pork belly which was reminiscent of bahn mi. My husband had a grass-fed burger with an egg on it. Both were very good. I thought the presentation was a bit bland but that was the only complaint.

This is a great, upscale tavern where I would like to enjoy a beer and a bit again. Prices were reasonable and the service was good.

“K'ant get it right in Kent”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Busy day since nice outside, so must sit inside which is fine. It's cave-like on a nice day, so one must tolerate or go elsewhere. Service is all over the place. Who is my server? They are nice but no clear organization and it's super busy. Food- lamburger special is well seasoned but is completely MUSHY - yuk. I ate what I could tolerate knowing it would take too long in the cave before I could go back outside. Tablemate burger raw - they bring back re-done on grill (health inspector?) after it was bitten into and condiments put on it. Why K'ant Kent get a good restaurant?

“Good for multiple visits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

We ate here several times during our visit, including an early dinner while watching California Chrome win the Preakness. Typically eat at the bar, excellent food, though the bar menu is not large.
