About Tavern 1757

IMG_5943Tavern 1757 is located at the beautifully landscaped address of 318 Roosevelt Drive, Seymour, Connecticut. We are a unique new eatery with many special touches. Upon entering Tavern 1757 you are captivated by the stone and ironwork, as well as the artful staircase. Check your location on the replica map, painted on the foyer wall, of the Town of Seymour from 1757. The Tavern features a unique country tavern cuisine with a global, award winning wine list.

The lounge seats 40 and is complimented by stone and reclaimed wood from the original building dating back to 1757. Looking up you cannot help but be impressed by the cathedral ceilings and iron chandelier. The lounge has one more surprise; adjacent to the bar is the wood fired stone oven where our gourmet pizzas are created and cooked to perfection. The two adjacent outdoor stone patios offer an alfresco dining experience of a secret garden.

The dining room on the first floor is constructed with hardwood floors, reclaimed wood accents and has soaring ceilings with beautiful stone inlays. Looking through into our open kitchen the first thing that catches your eye is the shimmer of the copper heat lamps that shine down on the delicious array of our Chef’s creations.
