Went here before our Painting with a Twist class on Valentine's Day. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere cool / fun, and for the money, worth your time. It's rare when everyone at your table all loved both appetizer and main course / drinks - they hit it out of the park!

We chose this place because we were going to be in town for a show and it was one of the best places I've ever been too! Fast too!

We came to Royal Oak in September 2013 as it is where my wife was born. We stumbled across the Town Tavern and were initially taken back by the warm welcome we received when we came in. We were shown to our seats (outside) and we chose some drinks. We ordered delicious giant prawns and the Lobster Nachos which were... More

The appetizers were so good I would go back just to try a few more. The service was excellent, comfortable seating, and the food was priced appropriately. I had tuna with black bean mashed potatoes. A very generous portion and absolutely delicious. My friend had the scallops that were also very good. Valet parking is available and a public parking... More

My friend and I had so many great restaurants to choose from, the outside seating won us over. We were quickly seated and wait staff were prompt. Food waats good. What impressed me was what appeared to be the manage, came by table to check on us. I liked this quality control.

Decided to meet a friend for lunch in Royal Oak. We walked around and saw many people at the Town Tavern seating outside. We decided to have lunch there. We sat outside also as it was a warm day. The service was terrific. They came immediately, answered any questions and were so polite. The server recommended the Shrimp Taco's and... More

Visiting from out of town with another couple, got there around 8, the place was crowded but we were seated quickly. The wait staff was outstanding with a good sense of humor and a fun time, explained all the specials and made recommendations for us all. The food was prepared exactly as described I had the shrimp special and it... More

This restaurant got everything right- the menu, the service, the food. The shrimp appetizer is recommended and the lobster mac n cheese is superb. It can be a bit noisy on weekend at peak dining hours but is still a very appealing place to dine or have a drink.

Stopped by to have a late lunch during the Arts, Eats and Beats festival over Labor Day weekend. Food was good and lots to choose from on the menu. Service was great.

Did I expect to have a great meal at a place called The Town Tavern? No. Was I optimistic that a blackened mahi mahi would be a memorable meal. Certainly not. Was I wrong. My, my is there a lot to like about this place. First, a diner is given quite a set of seating options: outdoor patio, tables just... More
