Had an early dinner /late lunch. The food was ok. Nothing special , but not horrible either. My husband was ok with it because there were sports on the TV. I had some kind of fish sandwich and I think he had a turkey burger

The food was average and prices were appropriate. Too bad as the restaurant has a wonderful location in the DeSoto, right downtown.

My children and I fell into this place by accident, we were smelling something delicious in the air and were starving. The food is average. The fish tacos lacked flavor. The best thing was my son's taco salad. Prices were average and reasonable.

After a long day of shopping and tons of crowds for Halloween weekend, we ended up at the Green Street Tavern for lunch. Located in the DeSoto Hotel, it was busy and...loud. Entering from the street is highly confusing. There's no greeting station, but we literally ran into a waiter, whom we asked if we seat ourselves. No! Okay, party... More

Very good and fresh; they keep our beverage glasses filled too. The bar looked like a lot of fun to stop in for a drink and snack!
