Great place in the middle of nowhere

This is a great little place in the middle of nowhere. The pork chops are excellent, but they do not have them every day. Nor do they have fried chicken every day, so one needs to check. The chicken is good as well. Great prices, tavern atmosphere.

This is a very good restaurant even though it is out in the country a little bit. My wife had the ribeye sandwich and I had the bacon cheeseburger. Both were very good and the service was great as well. I know from previous experience that their pork chops are awesome too. It is a tavern but they do have... More

The Hornville Tavern, famous in these parts for appearing in the movie "A League of Their Own" has consistently excellent food and service. Specials throughout the week include chicken on Wednesday (fried or smoked) and thick pork chops on Thursday. They also have the standard tavern food (burgers, sandwiches, fish) prepared well and at very reasonable prices. It's a nice... More

Great people like Deb and Rose. After you have came a few times the know you by name. The food is great. I love Saturdays for the prime rib. The Rib Eye steak is good but the chicken will knock you out of your chair. But you need to call it is all ways packed. And did I say Rose... More

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.
