“Good time”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here because we couldn't decide where to go. We ate out on the patio which was nice. Hamburgers were delicious. Steal salad was good. Pasta wasn't as good. Lots to choose from and reasonable price.

Thank Cindy D

“Delicious history”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

What a quaint hangout -- so many distingushed people have haunted this place. We had a nice dinner. The food was interesting and flavorful -- it's not the typical bland hotel food. The service was casual but still well-mannered, a reflection of the Ive League?

“awful service”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We went this past Saturday. We sat outside. The waitress came over about ten minutes with three glasses of water, there was four of us. She then came back with another. She came back about 10-15 minutes later and asked for the order. Then we sat and waited and waited and waited. We were all done with our water and she never came back for refills. The manager came over and asked how we were and we said fine except we have no drinks or water.
He came over and refilled us then the waitress came back and asked if we wanted bread in the meantime. didn't bring it. Our food came then came. I had to ask her for the bread. After that never saw her again. finally after about twenty minutes, we saw her and asked for the check. and guess what! she never came back. I walked up to the hostess and told her to get someone to bring our check. It wasn't even the waitress that brought it out. The manager was outside the whole time and knew we were mad and didn't even address the situation. There was no one inside and a handful of people outside with three of four other waitresses. she wasn't even helping someone else. It was obviously a problem, because the woman next to us asked for her meal 4 times. I will never ever go back there.

“Pub great for large groups at happy hour”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

Yankee Doodle tap room is located inside the Nassau Inn. The pub is pretty dark inside, but they have a decent happy hour and the apps we've ordered every time have been great. Save some time and order at the bar because servers are few and far between (and may even just be the bartender at times.) we usually arrive with a large group, without reservations, and have no issues with seating for happy hour.

“Early American Pub Atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We ordered drinks and an appetizer, calamari, which was very tasty. Shortly after our server received a large party and the service level fell sharply. But we ordered dinner, steak and sea bass, When it finally came it was hot and better than we were expecting. We weren't in a hurry, but the waiting for our server was annoying.

Sitting in our wooden booth, we could imagine George Washington having a dinner meeting with friends. Rockwell's Yankee Doodle mural behind the bar was large.

We might go back to check out the burgers, but not for a while.

Dear Bob D,
Thank you for telling us about your experience. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal and drinks while dining in our booths, you might have been sitting where Einstein did! However hearing about your lack of service is disconcerting, we always strive for our patrons to have the best dining experience possible regardless of how large or small their party is. We do hope that you come back to the Tap Room sooner than noted in your review so that we may rectify any shortcomings and leave you with a better taste in your mouth.
Yours in Hospitality,
Jim Byrnes
Food and Beverage Director
