The restaurant is warm and inviting while the bar area is... boisterous - but, not necessarily in a bad way. Everyone in the bar looked as though they were having a great time! Food was delicious and the portions are huge. Bring your appetite or someone to share with!

We chose Tunxis based on other reviews and its rating in the area. It was... okay. My husband got a pesto flatbread and he said it didn't have much flavor and my son had the Bolognese, which he said tasted like it came from a can. I had a different pasta dish (can't remember the name of it) that I... More

It was perfect! the menu is diverse from seafood pastas, brick oven pizza, sandwiches and entrees like chicken Parm...everyone will find something they like. I had their chicken picatta... More

I have been a couple times to Tunxis. The service is usually pretty good, lots of seating available, which could accommodate larger tables, and pretty good food at a reasonable price. I would return with family, friends, or on a date.

We ordered the Pizza Margarita, salad w beef tips and calamari. Pizza had too much tomatoes that were bland and the dough felt gummy. We can see the pizza was made by hand but why wasn't it tasty? It tasted store bought. The calamari was cut too thinly and you can barely taste the squid as the batter was too... More

Hi Renee! We hate to hear that you didn't enjoy your dinner. Our crust is always thin & crunchy so we're very surprised to hear that you thought it was "gummy." Next time, please let your waitress know so we can make it to your liking. Hope you'll give us another shot! More

The Tunxis Grill is a great spot for a reasonably priced lunch or dinner , hanging out with friends in the bar area, ordering pizza to stay or to go, or lingering over appetizers and some great conversation

The brick oven pizza here is so incredibly delicious, it's WELL worth the visit and cost! It's crispy on the bottom with a chewy crust-you can't ask for a better handmade pizza. Their other sandwiches and entrees won't disappoint either!

Stayed overnight in Windsor flying out the next day and wanted a simple, pub style place for dinner. This place was packed with locals on the day after Christmas, a great sign walking in. Bar is small but capably handled. Wine list is not extensive but fairly priced, lots of good craft beers on the draft line. Very welcoming vibe... More

Have visited this placea couple of times. Service was prompt, professional. Prices were reasonable, Food was very good. The location is convenient, not far from the corporate sites closer to Hartford, only a few miles from Interstae 91. On my most recent visit, I arrived for an early dinner and found the parking lot nearly full. But, there was a... More
