Based on Cindi Cullens review. – Whos to blame when your son showed up to the bar after driving around with a few in him to start? Dont your think someone could have been KILLED? must have been good parenting that taught him how to drink and drive in the first place, You have to understand Bartenders cant watch everyone, when your son has people go to the bar and buy him drinks because he's afraid of being shut off maybe he should learn his limit? wouldnt you say? Being a witness at the bar, your son was offererd numerous rides home and refused to take them and left the bar without letting anyone know so he couldnt be stopped. And as for getting pulled over whos fault is that? SPEEDING? really after u had a few to many beers? not the best of judgement wouldnt u say? Maybe your son has alot more growing up to do, and should realize that HE could have KILLED someone along with his passenger? u should have a talk with him like every other parent that cares, and let him know if he EVER needs a ride home to just call, small price to pay for someones life dont you think? Just Saying!
Serves People until INTOXICATED !!! – Other than the food being HORRENDOUSLY HORRIBLE,and the bartenders are the RUDEST people that you could ever meet. They also serve people to the point of INTOXICATION!! As was the case with my son, Friday March 11,2011. Their bartenders are unqualified to serve drinks.Are they not taught to know when to shut someone off !!!?? My son John, arrived there sober and when he left at 12:00 a.m.He and his passenger Holly , were pulled over not a mile down the road for SPEEDING...Officer observed them both to be HIGHLY INTOXICATED.My sons PBT test showed .219%...3 TIMES OVER THE LEGAL LIMIT. I.m wrighting this because this could have been a lot worse,someone could have been KILLED!! I also want to let Scott know that on my sons behalf, my attorney has filed a complaint with the state Alcohol Licenseing Board and the town of Franklin. Also made sure Wrentham Court is aware of where they were drinking. This is reprehensible,and I WILL make sure the is a severe repimand by a person of authority. My son has lost everything and is taking FULL responsibily for his actions and so will Coles Tavern
Love Cole's Tavern! – I love Cole's Tavern. The food is great, steak and cheese is to die for. One of the last places you can get the large steak fries, always freshly fried. Beers are freezing cold. Great place to watch a game. I've been going for years, never a problem with the staff. I've seen some people, usually drunk, get told to get lost but who cares? Great place to bring the kids early in the night. Very family friendly and huge selection for kids.
Bartenders and other workers are rude and horrible! – Was there for a function over the weekend and I can say the food was excellent, but the bartender Lexi was the WORST, RUDEST, person I have ever had contact with at a function. Rude to all of the patrons at the party, and just a horrible look on her face like she didn't want to be there! They should hire someone who actually wants to be there and enjoy their job. There was some other guy named Brian or Ryan who was a complete jerk as well! Never have a function there! I felt bad for the person having the function as people were complaining all night!
I hate Coles Tavern - Will never go back – rented to the room downstairs for a party,
They charged 20$ coonect an ipod to the stereo but i was never told there was a charge. Dealt with the owners wife, she was rude and acted like she hated being there.
Down stairs is cold and when asked for some chairs was treated rudly and she refused but then allowed us to use some patio chairs from outside.
I hate Cole's Tavern and i don't think any of my guests will ever go back.
Check your card statement!!!! – If you pay with a credit or debit card you should check your statement carefully!! I payed with a card and left a cash tip and when I checked my statement they added an additional tip to my card without my authorization. When I called to have this fixed, I spoke to Scott the owner who took an aggressive tone on the phone and would not refund the bogus tip. The service here is terrible, the employees are rude and I will never go back to this dive.
awesome outside bocce court, ice cold beers – I went for lunch and had a steak and cheese, it was the best I have ever had. My friend had a marinated chicken sandwich that she loved as well. Very busy place. I will be back!!
Not recommended at all – Yuck! Their food is bad, even for bar food. The service is bad and the people who work there seem perpetually angry. Sometimes they have really awful bands play there. The mixed drinks taste watery.
FUN PLACE – I love this place, the bartenders are great and the food is great for a bar :)
