I did not eat here, so must go back for a meal sometime. I did however watch a fantastic concert and drink...heavily. Their drinks were good, their place is lots of fun.

We loved it here. Terrific food. Ate here several times and never had a bad meal/service. They do have TV's with sports playing so it can be a bit noisy but overall nice atmosphere.

I'm local to OC Tavern and visit once every few months. They have a great happy hour with tacos, chicken tenders, wings, and the like. There are a few drink specials for beer and cocktails.

Great place with delicious food at a reasonable price. Service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. The entertainment and OTB were added bonuses for me and my buddies.

The food here is good enough and all, but the joint is just so noisy, with big screen TV's everywhere---you could have the same experience cookin a burger at home and then putting your head in a vise for 20 minutes.

The teriyaki, pineapple, chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries were delicious. The Peppermint Patty martini was super yummy! We went on a Monday night and it was not too busy. The service was fast--drinks within 5 minutes of ordering them, food within 10-15 minutes.
