I was worried that the restaurant was too fancy to take a baby in with us, but without a res at 5:30, we were already turned away from one place. We got the last ‘walk in’ table. Next to the tree. Lots of separate rooms,...More

Fondue sounds good, looks good and is an easy dish to make but it can be forgettable as well, food looked good, very busy. Wine list lacked character and value, I am not afraid of paying for a good bottle of wine, but I need...More

Came here to take relatives to dinner. Several people in town recommended Friar Tucks as a good place for a nice dinner. Service was very responsive. Steaks were good, but ribs were dry. Nice seasonal drink menu.

We haven't been here in 20 years but have always enjoyed the fondues: cheese, meat, or dessert. They always have great ambiance and local musicians add to the pleasant experience. This visit we particularly enjoyed the caprese and Caesar salads, the scampi plates, the plank...More

Yes, "smart casual" is probably the way to go, however, for those in shorts and a t-shirt you will not feel uncomfortable or out of place (especially in the bar).
