MUD HEN TAVERN's food, drinks and inviting atmosphere offers an affordable dining experience for the area. Susan and Executive Chef/Partner Kajsa Alger serve up a wide variety of rustic dishes and bar food, with the occasional global inflections that these beloved chefs naturally bring to the table. The bar team, driven by mixology consultant Tricia Carr, has curated a beverage program that offers a vibrant and accessible selection of international wines, local craft beers and artisanal cocktails that complement Mud Hen Tavern’s cuisine. The refurbished space includes plenty of booths and communal tables, as well as an expanded bar with a draft beer system, all in the front room to allow patrons to easily walk in for drinks or dinner. The outdoor patio offers a more relaxing atmosphere for reservations, larger groups and private events. <br /><br />

"Service was excruciatingly slow during our Sunday brunch visit. There was a football game on, but I don't know if that was a significant contributor to the place being full. We had to wait 30 minutes for a table, despite our reservation, and it was at least another 10 minutes before a server even came to our table after we were seated. All told, lunch took 2.5 hours due to the slow kitchen and slow service. Our server was trying her best, but she had too many tables and not enough help."

"Wonderful meal and friendly, devoted service. Made our anniversary dinner very special. Fortunately, three ants on the table appeared at the END of the meal -- had that happened at the beginning, I doubt we would have stayed for the meal."

Celebrated Chef Charlie Palmer has received critical acclaim for his signature progressive American cooking, a style built on rambunctious flavors and unexpected combinations. The seasonally-inspired menu spotlights regional ingredients and is complemented by a diverse wine list highlighting an impressive collection of small artisan producers. <br /><br />The social lounge is ideal for shared small plates and fun whimsical cocktails. The dining room features a la carte menu selections as well as prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner. The private dining room, accented by a massive wine wall, offers weekly wine tastings and monthly wine dinners, and can be reserved for private events. <br /><br />Located inside the restaurant is Next Vintage wine shop, which allows shoppers to select from the restaurant's trademark, eclectic lists of food forward wines at retail pricing.
