Our Philosophy

Come enjoy our cozy & quaint, 1700’s tavern with very large outdoor dining spaces. We take pride in sourcing our meats and produce from local farmer’s markets & growers in our community, as well as using local craft beer brewers & spirits to produce our hand crafted cocktails.

LOCALLY INSPIRED DISHES

We change our menu frequently and create dishes that showcase fruits and vegetables that are fresh and in season. The Rye Garden provides us with produce that is harvested just steps away from the restaurant. We also have cultivated long lasting relationships with local farms.

Rye Garden is located 50 feet from the Rye Tavern kitchen. It provides Executive Chef Drew Garneau plenty to work with. Established in 2011, in the Rye Garden we do plenty of succession planting to provide a steady stream of tender greens throughout the growing season. We also grow a variety of cherry tomatoes, herbs, lettuces, peas, carrots. beans, edible flowers and more. You can’t get more fresh and local than that! More than just Farm to Table, you can actually see our farm FROM your table!

Our Customers

  • Excellent time. Had not been in years. Arrived a few minutes early and sat at the outside bar on a 50F night and we were all so comfortable with the heat lamps and fire pit. Blankets provided if you want. Really Knowledgeable bar tenders. We started with steak tartar which was soft and tangy with well toasted crunchy bread. Best clam chowder ever said one. A meal worth traveling for. Duck was perfectly cooked with roasted fall veggies. Short ribs went well with clearly homemade papardelle pasta. Portions are big and even a table of big eaters had leftovers. Place was well lit and very friendly. And the ride in along old sandwich road was, well, and experience: IYKYK. Will return.

    I’ve been here twice. Love the vibe and drinks. Food is amazing quality and the patio and beautiful. I think for the average diner, this would be 4-5 stars. I’m gluten free and I think they need to up their game on this front. No available gluten free bread or buns, which makes 90% of the brunch menu not gluten free. You can get some things for dinner with modifications but this requires a back and forth with the wait staff and chef. we wish they would just label the menu with NGCI items and have better mod options!

    I highly recommend this place! The food is outstanding, the service is excellent and the staff is genuine and caring! I’d like to ‘shout out’ to David the outside bartender!!! After enjoying a delicious salad and lobster roll on Tuesday afternoon in began to pour outside. He was very considerate and provided me with an umbrella and assistance to the car. I really appreciated this, and makes a big difference as to where I choose to dine and bring family and friends. Thank you David!

  • The outside bar at Rye Tavern is a fun place to sit and people watch. The bar tenders are friendly and attentive while serving not only the bar but also the high tops and Adirondack seats around the bar area. The food is excellent and is served relatively quickly even though the restaurant is very busy. The one minor issue we had was with the consistency of the "blistered shishito" peppers. The small peppers were perfect, the larger peppers needed more time.

    My husband and went for our anniversary for brunch. We had the pork belly eggs Benedict, cheesecake stuffed french toast, cheeseburger and chowder. All we're a 10. Clam chowder has a scoop of mashed potato and a whole Belly clam garnish...huh??? For $12 it can't be beat. We returned for dinner because it was so good and had the halibut, wings, oysters and the cheeseburger again. Everything is great! We literally watched a server walk out to the garden to pick fresh herbs. Drinks are amazing, bartender and servers are kind, personable and knowledgeable. This restaurant is an absolute must! Atmosphere is rop notch. Not one complaint.

    The food is of the highest quality, cooked expertly and delivered to your table by a knowledge, helpful and very friendly server. And the taste... absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is rustic, clean and the feeling something historic happened there. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back.
