Haverhill Restaurant Reviews

Highly Recommended

Keon's

105 Washington St, Haverhill, MA 01832
Tel. (978) 521-0112

Serves contemporary American fare. Includes a menu, wine list, and directions. The menu boasts eight to nine entrees, plus usually a daily special. Every course is delicious and we especially enjoy the demi on the filet -- highly recommended! We dine there often and have sampled nearly everything they make and have never been disappointed. Call ahead for reservations as the dining room is fairly intimate with a room-length dark-wood bar along one side. Perfect for a romantic evening!

Evenfall

8 Knipe Rd, Haverhill, MA 01835
Tel. (978) 521-7550

Offering eight to nine entrees plus often a daily special, this funky restaurant sports two cool bars which seem more at home in Beacon Hill than Haverhill. That's a plus, because Evenfall's bars offer a pleasant oasis in the suburbs of Haverhill. Be sure to enjoy a drink (the one on the right is usually more hopping, especially on weekdays, than the one on the left) before dinner -- the martinis are excellent! The food at Evenfall is delicious and savory, with just the right portion sizes to make the evening feel complete. The large open dining room also sports some booths along the back wall. Ask for one of the booths when making a reservation if you like privacy. Hip without most of the pretension.

George's

130 Washington St., Haverhill, MA 01835
Tel. (978) 374-5150

No online menu (sorry), but this is a nice restaurant we sometimes visit for a change of pace. The entrees are well-prepared and the menu offers something for pretty much everyone. While the dining room is slightly larger than Keon's (which is just down the street), you should still call ahead for reservations.

The Tap Restaurant and Brew Pub

100 Washington Street
Tel. (978)

If you're looking for fresh-made beer and a nice variety of brews to choose from, The Tap is the place to go. Not every New England town has their own brewpub, but Haverhill does! The custom made beers are made on the premises and I've sampled and recommend them all. The food is standard fare for a place like this which emphasizes drink over all. There's something for everyone on the menu, reasonable prices, and plenty of dining room space so you can bring the whole family.

The Peddler's Daughter

45 Wingate Street
Tel. (978) 372-9555

Looking for an authentic Irish pub and restaurant. This is the best one in the Merrimack Valley. Located in the basement of a historic, old building, it is a wonderfully dark but warm restaurant and pub filled with many nooks and crannies for dining. Excellent Irish favorites may be found here and the staff makes you feel right at home. Easily the best pub in Haverhill.

Bistro 45

45 Wingate Street
Tel. (978) 468-9700

A Tapas and Martini Bar. Pretty much the best place in the greater Haverhill area to get excellent tapas. In a historic old building, quaint dining room, just above The Peddler's Daughter.

Price: $$
