I visited the tavern with a largish group for a business lunch. I was impressed with the level of service for the size group we had. Also impressive was the scope of the menu--something for everyone. I just had a salad, which I found to be well prepared. The others had more extensive meals, which they all enjoyed. The Tavern... More

My husband and I met another couple here for drinks. We sat outside and it was very nice. Drinks were good and service was good. We didn't have food but everything I saw go by us looked great - we will definitely be back for dinner soon! Lots of charm inside, too.

This is my go to spot. I think it's the best place for a burger and beer in the area. It's not a sports bar, but they do usually have the local game on. The taps are constantly rotating and they have a great bottle selection. The food has never disappointed, from the Tavern Burger to the Dublin Dip. Staff... More

Tavern is one of the best restaurants I have been to. Love their bacon egg and cheese burger....I don't forget their drinks! Best Martinis ever. We are regulars.

Yummy short rib fettuccini bolognese! Who would have thought for a tavern! Wishing my tummy was bigger to hold the whole serving.

While the food is good, the service SUCKS! I have a 3 strikes and you're out policy: Stike 1: Forgot an entire meal on a take out order - said I should have checked the bag before I left (really???). Stike 2:Inattentive staff with inept social skills and personality flaws should be removed from the dining floor. Strike 3: Was... More

The staff is very nice and helpful if you are deciding between choices. I would recommend the nachos, and are very filling!

Pretty good food all around. We enjoy the casual atmosphere and good food offered for lunch/dinner. It has a comfortable bar area and tables either near the bar or in a different section. Can accommodate a large crowd as well.
