Seafood Piccata

We have ordered this dish two different times and it is wonderful. The sea food selection is super and the pasta perfect. The only thing lacking is BT ambience. Thank you.

Raspberry Mille-feuille

The swordfish is an absolute favorite of ours along with the Raspberry Mille-feuille for dessert. My husband and I have been celebrating our birthdays and anniversaries at Barkers Tavern for the past 30 plus years. We love the atmosphere, the service and the delicious meals.

Broiled Swordfish

I love the swordfish at Barker! The best I ever had. Sometimes I have the baked stuffed lobster- also the best- but most of the time I have the swordfish. Cooked to perfection! I also love the clam chowder and they make a terrific Bourbon Old Fashioned!

The Barker Tavern has been tops on the list of "Go To" restaurants on the South Shore for many years. It remains so! Great place for a special occasion or simply in the pub!

Roasted Breast of Turkey

I ordered the roasted breast of turkey and it was fabulous. Creamy garlic mashed potato, moist delicious stuffing and fresh green beans accompanied the tender turkey. I ordered this takeout Sunday dinner and was joined by my Mom as we were celebrating her 89th birthday. She had the prime rib of beef and was so happy with her delicious dinner. Kudos to the Barker Tavern team for packing the food so expertly. It was hot and simply divine.

Center Cut 8oz Filet Mignon

There's nothing quite like the Barker's center cut filet, a nice glass of cabernet and the ambiance of the quiet candle-lit dining room to make any occasion even more special.

Barker's Fresh Pub Swordfish

My wife and I have been going to the Barker Tavern for over 20 years. In particular, Eli's Tavern. Friendly service, especially, Mona and Collin! The Cajun Swordfish is the only dish I have when eating in the pub. I challenge anyone to find better swordfish anywhere! Barker Tavern- OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT!

Slow Roasted Boneless Rib Eye with Aus Jus

We had the Mother's Day beef kabobs in addition to the Prime Rib. Both were delicious in addition to the squash and garlic mashed potatoes. Plenty for our family of 5 with leftovers for another meal. Thank you so much. David and Wendy Grace

Barker Raw Bar Plus a Half Chilled Lobster

My favorite Pub selection! Grab a popover from the breadbasket and go right to the shellfish! Good app for 2, great (big) meal for one. Was just a little bummed they ran out of cocktail sauce last time I ordered, but I enjoyed it anyway!

Barker's Fresh Pub Swordfish

We got married at the Barker 21 years ago, we have gone back every year since, and the Pub Swordfish is as good as ever. I always like Cajun the best, and this takeout version didn't disappoint. How do they do it? Such a thick cut yet so tender and cooked evenly throughout, just amazing. So thankful we could continue our tradition in these challenging times.

Seafood Piccata

My fiance and I enjoyed a relaxing Sunday night dinner at the Barker Tavern last weekend. We have been to the Barker previously and certainly will go again. If you haven't been, don't let the name 'Tavern' dissuade you or cause you to mentally categorize this restaurant as a pub etc. The Barker is far more, both in regard to the quaint, inviting, and classy dining rooms and the upscale dinner options. Both my fiance and I opted for seafood entrees, though there is plenty to chose from if you prefer the non-seafood route. I ordered the seafood piccata and my fiance ordered the pan seared scallops with risotto. The seafood was fresh and cooked perfectly (scallops were fantastic!). The service was excellent. We were waited on but by no means rushed. As we're currently in the middle of a pandemic, exposure, risk of infection, and safety precautions are at the forefront of everyone's mind. As someone with a masters in Epidemiology I am very attune to the above. However, I can only speak to the experience we had that day. We both felt comfortable. We wore masks to our table and then removed them. All staff wore masks at all times, maintained appropriate distance and offered outdoor seating. Overall it was a great experience, especially during this trying time. The food was excellent, and I can't complain too much about the company either ;)

We don't know how the chef does it every time, but getting the grill marks and keeping the swordfish moist and delicious is truly an art! Always a treat.

Charbroiled Beef Tournedos

We had the charbroiled beef tournedos during Restaurant Week a few years ago, and they were divine! It quickly became a favorite. We enjoy the ambiance of your restaurant and have always had very positive experiences with the food, the staff, and the cleanliness of the restaurant.

Oysters Rockefeller

Always start with oysters Rockefeller or escargot . That's where the decisions have to be made. Center cut filet? Swordfish? Baked stuffed Lobster? Or maybe try something different. Wine selection to go with any of these or a perfectly prepared (generous)drink. This is the only place I always have coffee and desert.

Grilled Marinated Beef Tips

We actually had the Mother's Day Special Beef Kabobs for 6 - 8. This was a great dinner from the great curb side pickup to the food with all the fixings. We decided that the two mothers, daughter and wife, needed a COVID-19 break so we thought of the Barker after getting the email menu. Best idea ever!!! Every dish was wonderful, well prepared and in great quantities for all. THANKS for making a great Mother's Day!!!

Bacon cheese Burger

The bacon cheeseburger was delicious. It was perfectly cooked and mouth watering. The sidewinder fries were also amazing and a nice twist on regular French fries.
