I really want to like the New World Tavern more than I do. During their soft open phase, my girlfriend and I came here for drinks and dinner 4 times. The beer list looked good; most of the regulars you'd expect at a decent beer bar and a few pleasant surprises. The food the first time was quite good. The second time I ordered something new while my girlfriend ordered the same thing she had on the previous visit 2 days before. Right away we noticed the fries were prepared differently as was her meal. Since it was the soft open, we assumed the kitchen was fine tuning their menu before the actual opening. And we assumed that each time we went back and things were prepared differently. After the grand opening however, we were still noticing changes in the meals. It's really not a big complaint but it's hard when you find something you like and want to have again but you know it will be different. The service here is great. Our servers are always attentive without being pushy. Knowledgeable but they won't bullsh** you if they don't know they product. Instead they'll ask someone who does and report back to you. This is a great approach. As far as the overall vibe of this place... I really don't know. It's hard for me to put my finger on it but it just doesn't connect with me. I could be way off but it has the feel of a place run by businessmen as opposed to food/craft beer enthusiasts. In my experience if the ownership/management has a love for what they're doing and the product they're selling then it shines through. I just don't get much of that shine from New World Tavern.

Very Laid back environment with a huge selection of beer. Over 100 in bottles and about 40 Taps. New beers are rotated in each month. They have an outstanding menu that pairs great with beers. Also they have a "Challenge" where once youve drank 150 unique beers you get your name on a plaque and put on the wall!

Went here on a weekend with Live music. Specifically called and asked if they had a high chair for our little one. When we arrived (Bobby) the bouncer looked at us with two kids and said "It's going to be a while" Now I don't usually look much into this, but I could tell that this guy wanted nothing to do with kids. Long story short, this is definitely not a kid friendly place.

We did put our name in and grabbed drinks from the bar. We only had one couple in front of us so it wasn't a big deal. Actually it was. If you go here on the weekend and the place is full, don't bother waiting for a table. Tons of people plop themselves at a table and just order drinks to listen to the music. Which I get, I've been there. But you have an entire back room dedicated for music, why not put the band and the people back there so people can get tables and order food?

So after 30 minutes, I strolled around to the back area and noticed a table that was open. I went back to Bobby, he said it was "reserved". Now when I had called earlier, they don't take call ahead or reservations. I shrugged and we continued to wait. I then had to use the facilities and noticed that people were now sitting at the table. Considering we were next, I decided to ask him what happened. He stated some people just grabbed drinks and decided to sit down but agreed to leave in a hour when the party showed up. Really? So lesson learned (not that I will be back) its a free for all with the tables don't bother putting your name in.

Constructively, the do have an extensive draft list. The sad part it isn't that good. More crap on tap, than good beer. I was hard pressed to find a decent IPA at the place. Their taplister was out of date as well. I don't expect it to be perfect but when there are 5 beers on there that according to the bartender have been kicked "days ago" you are wasting my time.

Long story short, there are better options out there. Especially in Plymouth.
