Had lunch with my granddaughter, ordered pizza to share. Small was right size - 8 pieces. Everyone gets a basket of different breads with butter or dipping oil. We did eat too much of that and had to take half the pizza home! All the orders going by looked amazing! Good service, nice setting inside - quite a bit noisy... More

This was the first time we’ve dined at First and Last in Plainville. (we’ve had lunch and dinner at F&L in Avon several times). It was a perfect stop after the movies and we arrived after 8 pm, so we were quickly seated. The restaurant was clean and had a good atmosphere. We ordered a kid’s past with meatball, a... More

I stopped here for dinner after an presentation for work. It was a nice and relaxing atmosphere to just decompress in. My salad was delicious, the chicken was chewy but it can happen with a thin piece. It's not a deal breaker. My waitress was friendly and very accommodating with my Low carb lifestyle. I would recommend stopping by and... More

Ate here for the first time based on numerous recommendations. Prices were reasonable. The pizza was very good. A wide range selection of beers. The only downside was it wasn't that busy and it took a while to get seated. Hostess had to clean and clear a table even though there numerous others available near by. But I will be... More

Stopped on a Friday night and it was jammed as usual. Sat at the bar...waitress put down black napkins which I placed in my lap. I was then told to use the paper napkin, the cloth was my "placemat" because the bar top had just been replaced and they didn't want it scratched....ok.....so maybe you should have gone to Walmart...

We met up with friends for lunch at this restaurant. A busy Friday before new year. The reception was warm and friendly. We were promptly greeted and shown to our table. They offer lunch specials and a regular menu. Also, a full bar and a limited wine list by the glass or bottle- reasonable prices! We decided to order a... More

We enjoy stopping at the First & Last Tavern on Cooke Street when we go to a Plainville Lowes movie. There are many entrees available at a table or in the bar area including salads, appetizers, pizzas and dinners. We like the ability to get in and out quickly before shows or to have a leisurely dinner after.

Went for dinner tonight, and we're looking forward to a good meal. To be honest, our meals were excellent, but our server was not. Once we received our food, we saw her one time. We wanted another glass of wine, but she never reappeared. Someone else finally took our leftovers for us and got our server to bring our bill,... More

We visited on 10/8/2016, with a reservation for 12. When we first got there, the hostess acted like it was a bother for her to seat us. We were crammed in and it was not comfortable. Next, it took our waitress about 20 minutes before she even asked us for our drink order. We then waited another 20 months for... More
