Normally a decent, well-priced place to have a bite and a drink but the last few visits have been disappointing. Had the Caesar salad and friend chicken sandwich twice in a row and, both times, the dishes came without their respective sauces. No dressing for the salad, no sauce on the chicken. When our concern was brought to the manager, it was a lackluster reaction. They offered a $10 gift card on a $15 dollar dish. Kind of insulting, especially since this is two visits in a row this has happened. Won't be going back for a while.

Mark!! the best server!! Very attentive friendly fun! Always available if needed but gave privacy for dining. Management should be happy to have him ..followed through with drinks, menus, promos, and anything else needed. Great atmosphere and delicious meals!

Everything was great...except given the pandemic in Rhode Island, Tavern in the Square is not following state protocols to seat only member of your immediate household. A table of 8 young adults having a great time, another table of four guys, group of girlfriends...I’m pretty sure my husband and I were the only ones who followed the rules. Tavern in the Square is enabling the continued uptick in COVID cases. Will not go back until all restrictions are lifted because they are non compliant.

Excellent night out. Mark our server was very attentive, friendly, knowledgeable about the menu offering us suggestions and definitely didn’t stir us wrong. He made our night very fun. Tiki drink delicious and he had no problem with me switching out the pineapple juice for cranberry. He suggested the steak and they were awesome! So tender and flavorful. The mashed potatoes could use a little butter, gravy or sauce but overall I would get them again. The only downfall was it seems noisy and loud but that won’t stop us we’ll be back and we hope Mark is working that night!

The Mediterranean chicken wrap was so tasty, I was happy to see a menu that had items other than burgers, pasta, and pizza.

Waitress was rude and more concerned with the hour and half table time limit. Must have mentioned it to us at least 4 times. Felt rushed.

My father and I came for lunch and were seated promptly. Although there were many people there, everyone was social distanced properly and all waitstaff were appropriately wearing face masks. The food was delicious! A decent portion and so good. We will be back again!

Our food took like 50 minutes to come out and we had a three year old with us. The servers hair was super greasy and another server was walking around with his hair in a messy bun with hair pieces flying all over the place. What happened to tying your hair back when you're a server? Our server also handed me a sauce with his fingers. Once the food came out it was really good, but just kindof gross that they dont have a "dress" code for workers.
