I took my wife here for the first time in several years, upon a friends suggestion. I was very happy I did - nice atmosphere with floor to ceiling windows looking at the post road -and cool menu that had not only appetizers but also "small plates" that seemed to be a little bit larger. Good wine list, good desserts,... More

This place has the perfect atmosphere. It's cozy and comfortable while still providing a upscale dining/drinking experience. Drinks are buy one get one free and the bar menu is unbelievably cheap - $1 sliders! I am definitely returning for dinner to try the pumpkin ravioli. Love this place.

Best happy hour in Fairfield County, possibly in the world. Staff is awesome and there is always a good crowd.

After several years of ignoring the busy bar on the corner the family finally made it to the Old Post Tavern on a quiet end of summer Sunday evening. I was pleasantly surprised to find a well rounded menu offering both carnivores and pescetarians many good selections served in an unpretentious dining room heavy on mid 20th century East Coast...

We finally got in after long lines due to the recent opening. Wow, it was so worth the wait. It was amazing! The service, the menu variety. I want to go back tomorrow! We sampled the sliders, wings, pulled pork, chicken cheese steak and chicken quesadilla and all were wonderful. The quesadilla came with a cilantro, lime sour cream....OMG, so... More

Located in Fairfield just down from TMS on the corner where the movie theater once was, the Old Post Tavern has almost transformed itself into a high end dining experience. I have looked high and low for a good seafood paella since it disappeared from a restaurant just over the border a while back. Haven't found one. Until now. Nestled... More

Last week three friends and I tried the Tavern for lunch. Frankly, I was just expecting "bar food". But, to our great surprise, the food was sensational. At the suggestion of the very accommodating Maitre d' / captain, Angel Sanchez , we left it up to the chef as to what to prepare for the two course luncheon. All served... More
