Great Customer Service and Good Food

I found this place using trip advisor and overall it was a good place to eat. The place reminds me of an old house converted into a restaurant. I sat at the bar in the back of the place to eat dinner. The staff was great and very prompt. Even the other staff that was not serving me made sure... read more

I don;t live in the area, and have not been to McKinley Street Taverne for many years. Which is too bad, because it is a very enjoyable place to go. The atmosphere is unique, and also very comfortable and down-to-earth, with very pleasant staff. I enjoyed everything about my meal, but I want to focus on the fried catfish. We... More

We come here at least once a week. The staff is friendly and willing to make right your order. There is something for everyone. The salad with grilled chicken as well as the Alfredo meals are plentiful. The soups are great. The peel and eat shrimp dinner is not as messy as most. They have been split already with very...

Went here on a recommendation. The steak and prime rib was out of this world. Great flavor. Thoroughly enjoyed this place and would recommend it to anyone who likes meat.

We wound up a weekend tour here with a luncheon and we were well-satisfied. They made a great Italian Beef and Chicken as well as other dishes in a buffet. Had a great homemade Apple Brown Betty which we hadn't had in ages. Great place for a nice group luncheon of 30-50 people.

Had some kind of chicken with seafood stuffing topped with processed cheese goop. They need to top it with real cheese. Also, the inside feels cold except for the one stall rest room. Also, was a bit pricey. Cindy, our server, was excellent!
