OC Tavern is located a couple of blocks from the hotel and I walked in. I’m not a sport guy so all the televisions and... More

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. They have a room dedicated to betting on horse races which is always a fun time. My husband's 10 year high-school reunion after party was... More
