Long Ridge Tavern in Stamford

I was invited by a couple friends last night. I knew nothing about the place. We made the trek up the merritt on the slushy night from Port Chester.......ended up having a lovely evening........the place dates back to the early 1800's.......it's filled with old charm and nostalgia.................when we walked in they had a lovely wood burning oven with a copper pot on top simmering with pear, apple, cinnamon, bay leaf and cloves.......the smell drifted throughout the place......

My friend, who is a local and somewhat frequent diner, had notified me that the food can be up and down......so I decided on a burger because I was in a "burger mood"......it ended up being perfectly cooked, very tasty, nicely sized and served on a fresh brioche bun.....the beer was great......I had a couple Long Ridge Ales......

Service was so so.......our waiter was very rushed all night long.......they didn't have a bar tender........ I noticed that all of the waiters were rushing behind the bar and fetching their own beer and mixing drinks all night........it was tough to track the waiter down for water refills or any other request.......nontheless the iffy service didn't take away from the great ambiance and the great conversation.

They also had a nice 3 or 4 piece live band which started jamming out xmas tunes around 9pm ish......overall I thought it was the perfect place and setting to chill out on a freshly snow covered night.
