Two couples eating early (6:00 PM); full menu available, incl. rabbit, salmon, hamburger, steak. Server arranged food arrival to accommodate cocktails and appetizers only some of us ordered: well done. Beef cooked to order, salmon done and not dry. Staff adept at handling full house in limited space. Dessert variety less than entrees, but spumoni was VERY impressive.

We had a tasty meal at Gill Tavern last night. We ordered pints of People’s Pink Farmer Brown, and Brick & Feather’s Positively 11th Street (IPA), fresh and delicious. We decided to order from small plates and starters menu, sharing a charcuterie platter consisting of in-house country pate along with speck, accompanied by house-made pickles (cauliflower, green beans and various...

Good drinks; extremely friendly wait staff; excellent food. My wife had the panzanilla salad with grilled chicken; I had the homemade pasta with wild mushrooms and leeks. The atmosphere is low-key and friendly Though some might think that Gill is a bit off the beaten path, it is well worth the drive.

Normally, portion size isn't something I complain about. Despite my fat cat photo, a very small plate or appetizer easily satisfies me for dinner. However, the pasta special at The Gill Tavern was so small, that it would easily fit inside a Fancy Feast can. $17? Seriously? I feel ripped off. I imagine you are wondering ...Were they the 7...

We came here because reviews were very good, but our experience was not. Seated with view of the bathroom and noise from the open kitchen, our starter turned out to be very small and not all things listed were on the plate. Entrees were pork tenderloin dinner and smoked pork tacos. Nothing exciting to report and the smoked pork was... More

We tried this place for the first time recently, and found it delightful - a cool spot on a winding country road. We began with a featured cocktail of the day, a grapefruit margarita. Who knew grapefruit and tequila was a marriage made in heaven? We shared the charcuterie, which was a perfect appetizer for two. My husband ordered the... More

As a child I was raised on an Angus farm not far from the general store. Back then it sold sundry items perfect for a child's world: penny candies, ice cold sodas for a nickel, a gentle old proprietor who sometimes gave you three penny candies for the price of one! The world is good when you are 8 and... More

A recent appetizer was Rabbit Loin, a novel and tasty beginning to a meal. The chef may offer rabbit-based dishes periodically, and they are worth trying. Scallops as entree were numerous and properly only lightly sauteed; seasonal dessert was strawberry shortcake, a biit modest in size but better biscuit than one usually gets.

Right in the middle of what seems to be rustic New England nowhere, is a charming, not too large, very cosmopolitan bistro. The Gill Tavern is small and the kitchen, right next to the bar, is as big as a minute and manages to turn out some very nice meals. It's more like a club, with fine food - the... More

We go here all the time. It's unusual to have a restaurant that is excellent in such a small town. We are very lucky. They are into using local ingredients- very fresh. The menu changes often but it's always amazing. Good bar menu and desserts also.
