Good food and excellent service

We had our best Dinners in Charlotte Amalie on the Tavern. Good variety on the menu and everything was well cooked and tasted delicious. The service was impeccable. Friday nights there is live music, and after that open mic. This is the place to dine.

Expect an expensive meal. But the restaurant's appearance matched the menu price. You can't tell until you are inside the restaurant. Our food took quite a while to get...about 45 minutes.

Even though they were setting up for dinner, we stopped in for a drink and they stopped to help us. Best pina coladas ever!

The food is fabulous and tasty and Ed remembered us after two years. He has a great sense of what he thought we'd like to try (beer) and picked the perfect one. The view is perfect and the ambiance is even better. Five stars all the way!!

We had dinner here and was able to get a table by the window. Great view. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. They had a reggae band playing a bit later after we finished our meal. We were a bit surprised because it was like big band reggae. Which was perfectly suited for a nice dinner out.... More

We've been attending the Tavern for 15 years and have never been disappointed with the food or the Jazz on Friday night. In fact we looked forward to it. Tonight the food was consistent with our expectations however the music was so loud that our table of six could not carry on a conversation. We were happy when they took... More
