Dined here for the first time in over a year today. I believe there was a change in ownership some time back. Good meals all around. A couple of people in the party had the lunch special with a tasty soup and sandwich that was really a bargain. I had the Tavern burger which was quite good - loaded with... More

Sat in the bar. Fun, fast, friendly. Tomato bisque was transcendental. A gifted soup maker for sure!

Great atmosphere, service and food! The nachos with pull pork are the best! I was not sure about the beer options so that gave me a sample to help decide!

Great value lunch menu. Food quite tasty. Have tried many things from soups, to salads to sandwiches, most recently the Greek salad with chicken (inauthentic but good; grilled chicken was moist and flavorful) and lobster corn chowder (very good). Recommend for consistency over a number of years. Obviously will return.

Nice sports bar with class is the best way to describe it. They have amazing wings and a bunch of different burgers and other meals. Nice place to go for lunch and it usually has a group there.

We live in Monroe and have eaten at Tavern a number of times. It is very casual and low key with very good food. While we normally stop in for burger or sandwiches, we have never had a meal that we did not like. The brunch menu also looks good but never tried it. Portions are generous. Wait staff has... More

We arrived later on Thursday afternoon and were seated right away at a table outside on their patio. Inside is very nice, rustic with exposed beams, but with summer ending it was nice to be outside under an umbrella. We each ordered a sandwich, and they were great! Grilled cheese with lobster had plenty of lobster meat and the Dublin... More

We had an early dinner here with my parents. As the reviews state there has been a few different establishments here in a short time, we have tried them all but the tavern is the best by far.

I have been to Tavern several times for drinks, but this was the first time my wife and I went there for a meal. We were seated right away, which is always surprising on a Saturday night.

We live in town and visited here on Father's Day for an early dinner. Not crowded at all, in fact it was fairly empty save for a few tables outside and one or two in back, but we sat in the bar area where the World Cup match was on.
