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

Amazing range of Beers, Ale & Spirits. A great place to unwind, Awesome food. Great Service. Enjoyed the Gold Fish Race. Ordered a Chicken Burger - the size was huge. Tasty & yummy. Fries accompanying it were fresh & hot. This place is worth any number of visits.

My wife and I used to live in the Arcadia area and we miss the easy access to Arcadia Tavern. Very family friendly which could be a turn off to some, but its not a problem for us. They have video games for family fun. Free valet. At one time they even had free bikes for locals to ride home,... More

Saw the Arcadia Tavern on a local TV restaurant review program, "Check Please." Each of the diners gave such positive reviews and the pictures looked so good, we had to try it. My Prime Dip Sandwich was so tasty and tender, the best I've ever had. My husband's Tavern Burger looked great and he said it was wonderful. We had... More

I met my aunt & uncle to celebrate my birthday. Ordered the full slab of ribs w/fries and cole slaw (instead of beans). Ribs were some of the best I've ever eaten -- fall off the bone tender, smokey sauce with a slight, spicy bite. Ice cream on large fresh baked cookie for desert - to die for!
