My family and I went to Early American Tavern for dinner this evening. The entire family raved about their food. The wait staff did the best they could to accommodate us. We highly recommend E.A.T. to anyone visiting Sussex or Sussex county. If we could rate tonight's meal 10 stars we definitely would.

My daughter found out about this place on social media and said it's right up our alley. We love old historic taverns. We visited on a Friday afternoon, sat at the bar and had a couple of drinks and a bunch of apps. We loved everything, the clams in Guinness cream broth were especially good. The staff were just as amazing as the buil ... read more

Had dinner here tonight. And I have to say it was absolutely delicious. We had the fried pickles and banging shrimp for our appetizer. For our main we had the Tuscan roast panini and a E.A.T burger topped with Mac and cheese. We highly recommend The Early American Tavern.

I flew in with friends to have lunch with Tammy. First time at the restaurant, first time in Sussex. Atmosphere was rustic and comfortable. The menu looked amazing, so many delicious choices. On recommendation I tried the pulled cow with onion pedals, it was out of this world. I will be flying up again for lunch.

Awesome Awesome Awesome. Great service, always pleasant. BEST ATMOSPHERE of any restaurant I've ever been to (and that'ssaying something). And... YOU WANT THE THREE DIP CALAMARI. (You're welcome!) The food is fantastic. Definitely a place we will return to, time and again!

Can't say enough about this place and the service, but I'll try... Big shout out to Tammy from "Big Red"! I have to start with a little back story first.

We like service and place but waiting was long. For one entree and one appetizer, it took 1 hour 10 min from entrance to exit. Suggestion: to improve timing and meat temperature knowledge.

I stopped in last night for a beer & a shot to relax after work. I was so entertained by Salenia & Tami that I stayed for hours. Good news, 3 dip calamari was amazing and they brought back the meatloaf, which was delicious and a generously portioned. Definitely will return for dinner.

Walked in for a quick drink after church on Christmas Eve and it was NOT the Sussex Inn. Omg- love it now. The ‘Jack Frost’ was fun, the bartenders were entertaining, and life was back into the place. Although we only had appetizers, the menu looked amazing. Good luck guys and Happy New Year.
