The world needs more "local" places like this one!

If you love hole in the wall, neighborhood style eateries, you'll fall in love the minute you walk into the Tack Room Tavern.

This restaurant is a bit out of town, but we didn't have any trouble finding it which our nav. system. We ordered a wedge salad and it was HUGE and big enough to share, plus it was one of the best we've ever had. I ordered sliders, very tasty and my husband had a burger. Great, casual atmosphere with wonderful... More

Quaint but loud bar scene with typical bar food. Strut up to the bar and sit on a saddle to get into the atmosphere. Food is very good with large portions.

Out cycling we stopped by to grab a snack, and sat outside in the back where its a huge outdoor area with lights hanging from the trees, a stage and lots of nice teak tables. This place looks like it would be a blast for dinner and outdoor music. The food we had was fantastic and I hope to come... More

We headed here for happy hour after hearing about it from friends. On a Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 pm, it was empty, but was filling up as we left at 5:45 pm. My wine was somewhat mediocre - tried a Sauvingnon Blanc and then a Pinot Grigio....not great. My husband ordered nachos with ground beef and I had potato skins.... More

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 too. We had breakfast one day and it... 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...
