Great friendly service! Food is also very good – went twice during our stay in Carlsbad! Enjoyed our time and enjoyed the historic records they have on the revolutionary war!

Our family had the best time here and the food at the tavern is outstanding. Extremely friendly service, quality culinary experience and a truly unique setting makes you learn about our country’s founding. Can’t recommend highly enough

Everyone (from kindergartener to college student) loved and enjoyed the place. Great nutrition for both body and mind. Great for taste buds and pocket book as well!

Been here a handful of times and tried a few different items on the menu like the lobster mac n’ cheese, the lobster roll, the flatbreads, tomato soup and grilled cheese and the french dip sandwich. All were very delicious, as well as the wine!
