I don't understand the food raves, but any place can have a bad day. The service was absolutely wretched and when I spoke to the manager, I received a shrug in response. The restaurant is within easy walking distance of my home and I now walk right by it.

I have been meaning to write a review for some time as this is one of our "go to" restaurants! Always good food and service! It doesn't matter what you order, it is always delicious. This is to be expected as Town Tavern is a part of the Roberts Restaurant Group, which is affiliated with some other great restaurants in... More

Staff is very pleasant. Food excellent. Try the house specialty Mac n cheese with buffalo chicken it lobster. You will be glad you did.

You are eligible for a parking ticket in the city of Royal Oak even after paying to park in a public garage. I learned this the hard way in March of 2014 when I returned to my vehicle after a night on the town. Imagine my surprise at receiving a parking ticket on my window in a public garage that... More

This is my favorite place in Royal Oak for a great business man's lunch. I took my biggest client there and it is consistently excellent. I had the cedar planked salmon and it was delicious. My client had shrimp over rice and ate every bite. My coworker had lamb tacos and said they were good. The other client had a... More

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.
