Walking into the Oak Barrel Tavern I could not believe it was the old Tweeds, what a wonderful job they did updating it. At the far end of the restaurant is a gas fireplace and some cozy seats around it to enjoy a drink. The bar area is large and they incorporated some oak barrels for decoration that look fantastic. I almost like the bar area more than the dining area it is so cozy.
The menu had a lot of tempting items on it, I loved the variety and twists on the mac & cheese, though, I opted for the Veggie burger with lettuce, tomato, mayo on a multi-grain bun with a side of crinkle cut fries. It was a large, delicious burger with a lot of veggies and even bits of potato in it (not the typical frozen, bland kind). The fries, well, they were crinkle cut, what more can I say? Delicious, and they happen to be my favorite!
Matt was our waiter. He was very attentive, always around for drink refills or whatever we might need. Our food came out fast which was a bit surprising seeing as the restaurant was pretty busy for a Tuesday.
I would suggest the Oak Barrel for some great pub food, interesting variety of pub items or just go to enjoy the bar area or the fireplace! The food arrives quickly and the service is great and the overall atmosphere is comfortable and cozy.
