Great respite from the chaos of Festival Tournament

Popped in here daily with other moms during the Festival field hockey tournament over Thanksgiving weekend 2014. It was not crowded and the outdoor seating area is lovely and quiet compared to the thousands of people on the fields! Bloody Mary was good as were the beers. Chip and Salsa was good... read more

They are the best burgers in town. Hard to find little gem. I like that all the polo crowd hang here together. Good happy hour.

Not so much....went to happy hour. Got 3 different things and to say the prepackaged mini corn dogs were the best is sad but true. The basalmic on the flatbread was bad so it made cheese taste spoiled. But the crust was like totinos pizza. The bacon on the sliders was so overcooked there was no taste just simply crunchy...

We decided to go to the Tack Room Tavern on Friday night. Beforehand I checked with Trip Advisor an the previous ratings were very good. Kirsten our server was very attentive and she explained about the Happy Hour. Until 7 and all night on Wednesdays. The Happy Hour prices were very good. It is the off season right now, (Summer)...

We stopped by the Tack Room for happy hour and had a great time. The staff was very nice and friendly. It was a happening place even though it was a Saturday afternoon and during the summer. The place was not crowed but everybody was having a great time. We sat at the bar to watch NASCAR and was next... More

When you drive in, it appears to be only for members but what a nice place and we are so happy we ventured in. Nelson, the waiter, was so enjoyable, friendly and nice! We felt like a local even though we weren't. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich and it was very tasty. Wish we lived closer. We would definitely... More

Well, revisited The Tack Room a couple times since my review. Somewhat disappointing. It is a fun place but the atmosphere is LOUD and you are pretty much eating in a bar....Menu selections are just OK. The specials have been really good. Try it out if you don't mind the noise and raucous crowd.

Food was very good & inexpensive. Eclectic group of people, polo players, polo grooms & everyone in between. We went on Thursday night, which is karaoke night & very entertaining. Service was very good. Patio dining made for a pleasant experience.
