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

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. The hostess was friendly and very pleasant. Our server was also friendly and she had a genuine smile every time she visited our... More

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. Our server was attentive and offered us some samplings of... More

My husband had the bacon, egg and cheese burger-sounded strange to me but he loved it. I had the brisket and it was quite tasty. It was our first time there and we will be back with friends! Erin was terrific, friendly and attentive.

The Tavern is a gem of a restaurant in Monroe. The food is excellent and the staff wonderful. They are very attentive and accommodating with their menu choices. The bartender even made me a special sangria. They serve a great assortment of bar food and appetizers, soups, salads and sandwiches. They are limited with full dinner selections but one can... More

The Tavern is a medium sized restaurant located on busy route 25 in Monroe, CT. It has a decent sized menu filled with a good assortment of bar food & apps, and soups, salads, burgers, and sandwiches. There are a few larger comfort food selections, but not many. I went to an early Saturday night 5pm dinner with my wife,... More

During the cold months, the gas fire will be on and that makes for a very rustic setting. Tavern like setting in front room. Dining area in rear. Enjoyable for any event. Good selection of beverages. Trendy menu and decent food- sandwiches, burgers, apps... Bar staff very nice. Have not been but happy hour until 7PM which is nice!

My boyfriend and I recently tried the Tavern for the first time and ordered some drinks and dessert. Both the presentation of the food and the taste was excellent! This place has gotten mixed reviews, but I'd recommend this restaurant for anyone that's looking for something new in the area. The decorative atmosphere was tasteful, and the staff was very... More
