Years ago, this place was tops. Great food and service. Sadly, those days are gone. The food was marginal (I had fried chicken) altho not cheap. It started with an unfresh salad. A small bowl of iceberg lettuce with a couple chunks of tomato on top. Then the appetizer arrived. Which was pretty good, but not amazing. Fried green beans... More

First time visit to the tavern. Found it through Trip Advisor We went twice for lunch during our 4 days in Evansville. The ribeye sandwiches and the burgers were very good and very reasonable. The peanut butter pie was delicious. One waitress handled all of the tables and the service was great. Beautiful drive through the cornfields to get there.... More

Been here a few times. It is a hole in the wall but well worth the time to find. Value is great. Food is nothing special but that is part of the appeal. At lunch the place is packed. The specials are very popular.

Visited Hornville Tavern for first time in almost 3 years. The food was as delicious as we remembered it but the tavern was so busy the service was lacking. On entering every vacant table had a Reserved sign so we sat at bar. Immediately a server came to seat us at a table. Very nice! The waitress had to be... More

Hornville Tavern is a bit out in the country, and is mostly surrounded by corn/bean fields, but it is well worth the trip. Charming local atmosphere, reasonable prices, and good food makes it a winner. There are several "similar" local restaurants located on the north side of Evansville, and Hornville is easily my favorite.

There's nothing fancy about this place; it's very casual but the food is great. Our food was served promptly and we were surprised the portion size was so large with such a reasonable price. We were going to get dessert because of all the rave reviews, but it took the waitress 45 mins to come to our table after we... More

If Your'e a Local and You Don't Eat Here at Least Once a Month, what the heck is wrong with you!? We stopped in on a Tuesday evening and had the smoked chicken special: OUTSTANDING! The German potato salad was perhaps the best I've ever had. Excellent choice of beer on tap. Next time we are in Evansville this is... More

They are kind of out of the way and hole in the wall but you won't be disappointed. Their specials are amazing. I had one of the best steaks there. Their portions are great, too. Plus their beers are plentiful and cheap.
