This was, I think, my third visit to Bowman's. I wasn't as blown away as I was the first two visits, but I enjoyed my meal. There were four of us and the others also liked what they ordered. I started with the fried oysters,...which I'd tried before. They were just as plump and delicious, but this time I didn't really care for the aioli in which they sat. It must be just me, because my spouse liked it very much. My spouse also enjoyed the mussels, which were sweet and fresh, while I had a better-than-most bratwurst sandwich. Usually I find bratwurst too full of fat pieces and too highly seasoned. This one was perfect. One of my friends had the creamy ricotta appetizer, which I tasted and judged to be as tasty as I remembered. The ambience of the room was quite pleasant, and our server was professional and helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.More

I have a severe nightshade allergy. They were able to fix me up with a delicious burger and they even had my favorite whiskey (Suntory). We went here for all 3 nights we stayed at Bowman's Inn. Recommend. The staff was very pleasant and friendly....^_^.More

This was our first time at Bowman’s Tavern since before the pandemic. Lucas was our server. There was a laminated card on the table to let customers know that the kitchen is doing the best they can and they’d appreciate no substitutions on orders. I...was happy to see this because it helps us set our expectations. When I made the reservations, I requested an outdoor table in the shade for our party of 5. That’s just what we got. Everyone was happy with the food. I tried the ricotta gnudi with a side of crostini. It was delicious. Lucas was very friendly and attentive. They have Coke products. They also have valet parking. I’m really glad that the quality of the food and service are as good as they’ve always been. We’ll definitely be returning.More

We had a strange cut of tough steak, and some frozen fish that was of poor quality. Better to go here for lunch.

On 08 AUG 2021, my wife and I had dinner at Bowman's Tavern, New Hope. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. At the conclusion of our meal we were given a bill for $96.48. I used my credit card to pay...for the food and drinks. As is my custom I XXX'd out the tip and wrote $96.48 for the total on the Merchants copy. I tip in in cash, and put $21.00 in the folder along with the signed CC receipt. As is my habit I checked my CC account that evening, and saw the charge for $96.48. On TUE, 08/10/2021, I checked my CC and found that Bowman's Tavern had adjusted my CC charges to $117.48. I tried calling at that time, but the Tavern was closed until WED. So I sent an email with all the details about the overcharge of $21.00. On WED, 14:30 hours, I called the Tavern and spoke to the GM. The GM had not seen my email, so I explained my concerns. The GM agreed to look into the matter and get back to me. The GM called me THU morning, and apologized for the mistake in the adjusted overcharge. I expressed my concern about how a mistake was made when I XXX'd out the TIP, and left a cash tip of $21.00. The GM stood by the fact it was a mistake. The GM asked for and given, that day, my CC info so I would receive my $21.00 overcharge. It is now 22:40 hours, MON 08/16/2021, and I have not seen a credit for $21.00 on my account.More

We visited Washington Crossing Park and we’re headed to New Hope for lunch when we began chatting with an employee there — he suggested we should stop at Bowmans. It was a great recommendation! It’s a relaxing quaint tavern. The food was very good, just...what we were looking for — we split the Ruben and had a salad as the side. The service was friendly and prices reasonable. Definitely would stop again.More

This is a very nice tavern - larger on the inside than it appears from the road - at which we had dinner. We loved how the menu on the website was current with our evening's specials along with the regular menu. Sandwiches as well...as full entrees' were available and at all price ranges. We felt the food and quantity was very fairly priced, particularly as this is in a tourist area. Beers are on tap and by bottle and the wine list covers the major varieties as well as a range of price points for each. There was a live piano player and it seems they have live music most nights, but the restaurant was packed and lively so we didn't hear much of the playing. That said, our order was timely taken and delivered at a surprisingly quick place for how crowed the venue was. Everything made for an enjoyable evening. We'll be back for the grass fed burgers - it's great this establishment supports its local farmers.More

As other people have suggested, call the restaurant for a reservation. The only other comment I would add is that this restaurant is more of an adult or older child place. Two bars and music. No place really for younger... More
