My review can't be completely subjective since I grew several blocks from the Fernwood many years ago, and the tavern seems, incredibly, frozen in time. My dinner was nostalgic for this reason and because it was had with dear elderly distant family who also both...More

I've eaten at the Fernwood a couple of times. It is an old school restaurant, with an old school menu. Nothing fancy here. Service is dependent on the number of tables filled and can be spotty. I wish I could be more positive about this...More

When the family is in town we usually go there for at least a meal or two. The food is always good and reasonably priced. The service is also good.

Went there for a late lunch. I planned to just grab a burger (which I did in a way) and my wife was thinking of a basic salad. In addition to good variety of lunches, etc. on the regular menu, there was a wide variety...More

Old School Family Restaurant. Good place to take grandparents to. Not overly big portions, reasonable prices, appropriate music. Good prices on beer and wine. The place is old, and very dark. I have grown fond of their atmosphere, because it hasn't changed. I like the...More
