Scotch Plains Tavern
Moderately expensive for an average quality meal.
Thursday night upstairs bar band way too loud for any kind of reasonable conversation downstairs.
This is the same location as the former Oliver's and remains a good choice for a businessman's lunch on weekdays at the upstairs bar.
Meeting place between Providence and Fairfield Ct. Good food including vegetarian and gluten free options . Good place for family and friends.
great atmosphere, great service - really great service and good food.
Great menu selections, with some pizzazz! The mussels were delicious.
Great food, great band and great service!
Definitely a five star Tavern. The food and service were excellent I will be definitely going back. Highly suggest.
We had a great meal and enjoyed live music. We were a group of 5 each having different meals. Everything was great. Seafood Fra Diavolo, prime rib, a vegetarian wrap and small plate steak. The chocolate cake desert was killer. Nice craft cocktail menu. Really nice relay atmosphere.
Came to see the Sin Sisters. They were awesome. Lots of fun dancing. Food was good.
A really nice selection of uniquely prepared and delicious apps, small plates, and main courses to choose from. A fun and delicious experience to share with friends.
First time there and really liked the entire feel of the restaurant from the hostess to the waitress to the food and to the band playing. Will be back.
Up stairs noise bleeds over way to load to talk. The waiter went out for a smoke while waiting on us not a great smell while eating.
Food was above average. Fish tacos were just ok but other food items were good.
Excellent service, outstanding food, good portions. Nice atmosphere as well. Planning on returning in the future.
A great place to enjoy small plates and relaxation. We especially loved the veggie dumplings!!
Rich was an excellent server! Food was absolutely delicious!
It’s was nice. Food is always good. The service was a bit slow, but there was a baby shower.
Waitress was very nice and helpful. She did an excellent job.
Made last minute reservations and requested a booth if possible. We arrived a few minutes late but our booth (large, high-backed, comfortable) was waiting. Service was immediate and friendly. Drinks arrived quickly and I was pleased that they offer a generous pour with wine:-) Menu seemed a little all over the place: English pub food, Asian, Italian, Latin...but they definitely had something for everyone. We split a Caesar salad and I enjoyed chicken dumplings with dipping sauce and my husband got shrimp cocktail. The dumplings were great and the shrimp were huge. For entrees we had Salmon with lobster mashed potatoes and Filet Mignon. Both were well prepared and very enjoyable. The place looks great - such a big change from when it was Oliver's. It is trendy and sophisticated but still approachable and casual. The had a band upstairs and the place was packed. We didn't spend anytime up there but the music was great as we finished our meal. We will definitely return to Scotch Plains. Thanks for a really wonderful date night!
We absolutely love it here! We came for taco Tuesday and it was such an amazing deal and the food was delicious!! We’ve always had a great time here. Affordable, perfect atmosphere, great service and phenomenal food! Definitely recommend going for any occasion. Side note- friends of ours had a rehearsal dinner here and raved about their experience!
Waiter did not know the specials or soup when he can to take our order and so he went back into the kitchen to ask! Young, in experienced... he will be good in another month if they keep him!
We have never been disappointed with the food. There is a wide variety and the ingredients are fresh. We are on restricted diets and they are always flexible with our orders.
Although the bar is upstairs, it can be very loud when eating on the main level. Sometimes it is difficult to carry on a conversation.
Waitress we had was in tune with all are needs and excellent recommendations for appetizers and dinner.
33 $ for a 3/4 inch steak r u serious.................,,,,,,,,,,,,,
My friend and I met here for lunch and it was so great that we ended up staying here for four hours!
Excellent service, delish food, great drinks, and wonderful atmosphere. Will be back for sure!
Thanks for having big a variety on the menu including vegan options!
The food was excellent, we even went back the next day. Food coming out of the kitchen was slower than expected. The waiter and waitress service was friendly and attentive. We would go back when in the area and recommend it to friends and family.
The food and service were great. Really enjoyed the atmosphere, definitely recommend it!
Loved the food and the service. Beautiful restaurant but the live music was way too loud and made it hard for all of us to hear each other at the table.
We came for dinner and were seated in the bar area so it was a bit loud but the service was great and the food excellent
Our waiter was fantastic and the food was soooooo good. Also service was fast!!
Reserved table on line easily, pleasantly received at door and servers attention to us was excellent as was the food. Been here before and service and quality of food has always been excellent.
The food was excellent and the service was great . We were seated early even with a reservation
Everyone was friendly and accommodating. The hostess greeted us an say up promptly, the server was knowledgeable and attentive. Food was delicious. The cornbread that came with the chili.... THE BEST.
For some reason they had the side doors open and there were flies everywhere. Very disappointed.
Great food and ambiance. Love the building! First time there but will be back
Great environment, delicious food, nice menu (something for everyone), music good but after 7:00 pm music was so loud that we could not talk to one another without raising our voices. Maybe a should barrier between the band area and the dining to diffuse the sound some.
Ultimately, had a great time!
Hi I was very disappointed with our services there I came with a big party at 12:00 for lunch and needed to make it to dhow and when it came time to pay the server took six times to get our checks right for us to pay so that made us late for our show took over thirty minutes to pay for our meal.
The ambiance was beautiful and very clean but the waitress we had was awful unfortunately.. She had failed to mention any of the specials for the night and wasnt attentive to my husband and I. My husband was satisfied with his meal. My salad had a strange taste to the lobster in it. The waitress did however take it off the bill but I also went home hungry.
Great place to go for live music. Burgers and fries are excellent.
We had a wonderful early dinner (6 PM). Shared a platter of homemade chips and blue cheese dipping sauce as a starter. Sarah had an appetizer of crab and salmon cakes (with no filler). Ladies had very generous lobster salads and I had the Friday night prime rib special (a bit under flavored - for me).
Total bill, including a bottle of wine, one port and one dessert, was $164. A very reasonable price.
Ambiance is great - industrial style decorating. Two story with curved wood ceiling. Bar and game room are located on second floor, overlooking making dining room. Patio Dining is also available.
