The service was slow from the start, waited 15 minutes for our drink orders. One of the food orders was an egg sandwich, nicely presented. After eating half the sandwich the middle the egg appeared to be uncooked. So uncooked, the egg was clear in color, totally unacceptable. A staff member had the “chef“stop by the table and take a...

Since moving back to AZ, my husband loves checking out his old Arcadia neighborhood. This place looked good. Valet parking was necessary, tight lot. A fun environment, but really loud. We were there mid afternoon Saturday so maybe college football on tons of screens contributed to that. We had fish tacos - we did not care for them - and... More

Nice place. Bar is a bit small, patio is a decent size and misters work good. Service at the bar was kinda bad. Half the drinks we ordered were not on our bill. Not sure if bartender was that unorganized or if she purposely left them off as compensation for bad service.

The menu deserves a top rating. If you like "comfort food", as I do, you will love the Arcadia Tavern. Corned beef and cabbage, meat loaf, ribs, soups and Cobb salad are among the many familiar menu items. I certainly recommend the food......and the service is excellent. But, beware, the place is a sports bar and extremely loud. Valet parking... More

Went to Arcadia Tavern last night for the first time since it re-opened. What a disappiontment! Gone is the children's play corner (we don't even have kids at home anymore but enjoyed the fact that neighborhood families could enjoy this place together). And while the menu was much the same, prices are increased, service has worsened, and the food was... More

Had a Groupon so we ventured a little further than usual. Very crowded, vibrant bar scene with lots of TV's all around. Typical bar menu. Burger with sweet potato tots were good, the pretzel was a little too greasy. Good selection of beers. Before we left I went to the one person at a time restrooms, for a bar it... More

We stopped for lunch. Parking is tight, best bet is to use the valet. The lot is small and crowded for the lunch time. The food was well prepared and the selection was quite good. Portions were somewhat large but prices were moderate. Companions raved about the fries. It's a little noisy, but it's a sports bar/brew pub type place,... More

This is our second visit to Arcadia Tavern and we were not disappointed for my birthday lunch. Our first visit was for dinner on a weekend night which admittedly was a bit louder and rowdier although the younger children contributed to some of the noise. I had the Tavern Burger during our last visit and was not disappointed. Two 1/4... More

A neighborhood feeling here, where everyone might know your name if you went frequently enough! :-) The steak and spinach salad I had was magnificent! Bacon and blue cheese crumbles, and cherry tomatoes --a healthy portion, and great steak! My friends had equally as delicious food, especially the half-roasted chicken served atop REAL mashed potatoes and an au jus! Prices... More

had not visited in awhile, and while though Tavern was never one of our favorites.....it has gone downhill from there. This was verified from friends whom told we went, stated "oh yeah they've had a lot of turnover", "place is dirty", "service is slow", etc.....exactly all the items we experienced. Service was slow and average knowledge of product, dress code... More
