Love, looove this place. It would be OK without Luke, but with him, it's home! I'd come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could. The menu is varied, food is great (not all of the items, but I now have my favorites that are amazing) and the beer... The beer deserves its own paragraph. I mean, a standalone one. Beer changes often, it's always good and never gets old. Some of it is in the range of $13 for a small glass, some is very reasonable, but all of it is craft and delicious. Luke knows his s*** and can recommend anything to suit your palate as well as the meal you're ordering. Speaking of ordering. I haven't ordered anything by myself for a few months now. I just ask: "What am I eating today?" and I always get what I needed.

Went to the Broad Axe to celebrate my granddaughter's 18th birthday. My order of seared tuna came barely seared and was actually cold; it was served without the wasabi as described on the menu. Have you ever tried to eat cold rice?? My companion's order of baby back ribs tasted like boiled meat heated over, not once, but several times. Service was adequate, but hardly outstanding. Will not return!!!!!

If you are looking for a menu with excellent variety, very reasonable prices, a cozy atmosphere and excellent customer service, Broad Axe Tavern is your place. It is the perfect place to go for a date or bring the entire family. This past Saturday night I went with my wife and parents for dinner and, overall, the food was delicious. My wife ordered the tuna and was not satisfied with the taste, but as soon as the waitress saw that she wasn't enjoying it, she took it away, erased it from the bill and asked if she could get her something else to replace the fish. It is this quality of service and friendliness that guarantees our return business and full endorsement of the establishment and waitstaff that make it such a comfortable and positive environment!

Went for dinner on a Sunday night, and had a wonderful time. Wide selection of beers, great menu (not very vegan friendly however), and a nice atmosphere. My sandwich was outstanding, appraisers were slammim, and everyone else's food was grand as well. 10/10 would go again.

Poor experience. It's trying to be a fancy brew pub, but the service just doesn't know anything about beer. When asking for a refill of the same beer, the server brought out an obviously different beer by color and taste but argued with us that it was the same beer. They brought out the wrong food twice! And then when we reviewed the check realized they had been pouring the beer in smaller glasses than advertised, 12oz pours instead of 16oz as they should have been. In summary, bad food, beer you can get anywhere, and very poor service, especially at this higher price point. Recommend avoiding! I'm also noticing that the trend in positive reviews are old reviews, the newest reviews are poor. Unfortunately, mine was not an isolated poor experience.

Took forever to be seated after being told multiple times we'd be seated soon. "5 minutes" became 15. Appetizers came out late, entries out exceptionally late. All staff members seem completely depressed. On bright side, the food was pretty good and there was an amazing bottled beer selection.
