As the saying goes, when you walk into a tavern and everybody knows your name it could mean either of two things. You are very friendly or you imbibe too much, we are friendly and enjoy the social atmosphere.

We've been here several times now and have had great food and service every time. Our family has different tastes and the menu has a lot of choices. Their bread is delicious! Their happy hour items and prices are a great value. Try the ceviche and the prime rib sliders...yum!

Nice place but they seriously need some volume control with their bands and music during times for food service. It's hard to have a conversation with a meal while bands and music are playing so loud. Menu has nice variety and is consistently good.

Me and my family love this place. The tri tip is so tender you can cut it with a fork. Its literally the best tri tip I have ever had. The service is great. The waitresses and waiters are very helpful efficient and friendly. But the food is fantastic- from the dinner rolls, dinner salad (yes the dinner salad) to... More

We're relatively new to the Temecula/Murrieta area and heard about J. Carter Tavern on Facebook when it was listed as a good steak house. It's pretty non-descript on the outside and is located in a strip mall not far from the 215 Freeway. If we had not heard it was a good restaurant, we probably would have never seen it.... More

I usually don't order the french dip in restaurants because you usually wind up getting one where the meat is tough or it's sliced too thick and that makes it too chewy and hard to eat. I took a chance here and ordered it with the onion rings. WOW! The meat was sliced thin, and was so tender it melted... More

The best Prime Rib in a Tavern? You say? I do. I say it without hesitation. And do it on Wednesday as the special for the day. Appetizers, Salads, etc. it's all good! Treat yourself and your taste buds. Oh, bring your family and friends along for the ride. They will thank you for it.
