"Menu was very different; not to our liking. We had the venison loin which, although tender, was so heavily seasoned with pepper that we had a hard time eating it. The crab cakes that I had for appetizer were excellent - had I know how big they were I would have ordered them for an entree. Service was excellent and atttentive. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that steaks and other beef entrees were only available in the chop room. If we had known that, we would have eaten there instead."

"we had dinner on a cold winter night. It was fabulous: creative, healthy and beautifully presented. Staff was friendly and accomodating. MARSH TAVERN BAR: warm and friendly ambience. variety of cocktail offerings at very reasonable prices. Bartender was super friendly and helpful regarding the Manchester area. it was an informative and truly fun experience!"

"My husband is a vegetarian and the chef was able to make a delicious meal for him.
The food from the beginning of the meal to the end was excellent.
The service was great! The atmosphere is very relaxed.
We can't wait to return!

"My family had a great dinner at the Marsh. The short ribs and chicken entrees were excellent. The kale salad was particularly good too. Service was very good. We ate there last year too and liked it but we think it was even better this year."
