There is no doubt that parking can be an issue at certain times at Route 53 Tavern. The parking situation is often, not a good indicator, of the activity in the building. There can be available seating in the restaurant and bar, and in situations where there is a wait, it is not as long as it may appear from the parking·situation. Simply stated, the parking situation can be deceiving as to the activity in the restaurant. If there is a wait it usually runs between 15 and 50 minutes. Larger parties, a desire for a specific table or area of the restaurant, maybe longer. The restaurant has about 100 parking spots, and about 60 spots across the street, and complimentary valet parking is available every night and whenever it may be necessary. There is always the opportunity to park your own vehicle. The valet will gladly point out the area available to the guest for that situation.
