A popular place for many years, 60, I think, we stopped in for lunch. Seating was immediate in our case. Great atmosphere and ambiance. Don't miss the onion soup! There are three choices of mac n cheese, each one better than the other. Comfort food at its best!

Love the food and the atmosphere at Town Tavern. We always get the crab cakes appetizer - amazing - and even though so many items on the menu sound good, I usually get the chicken milanese because it's so delicious. My husband has tried many items on the menu and has always enjoyed his meal. They have a great beer... More

I had the meatloaf while the wife had fish. Good food, good service, and the price, with one glass if wine each, came to around $63. We'll go back.

This place has the best comfort food as well as other great entrees. I always go for the pasta and this was the best. My friend had the meatloaf and that was delicious too. Would highly recommend! It has a great atmosphere too - quaint and cozy, like an English pub.

It is one of the more expensive places in royal oak but it's definitely worth it. Whenever we are looking for a great dinner, we end up at Town Tavern.

Nice setting, great bar and restaurant design. Food is good and consistent and service is good as well. Unfortunately if you sit outside you may be able to smell the dumpster next to the restaurant in warm days. No problem inside. Would go back again.

Nice, casual yet upscale restaurant. Creative menu with wholesome food choices. I wasn't too hungry the first time I dined here and selected a tasty and perfectly sized portion of mini fish tacos while my friend had a full meal with the fish of the day. Liked this place so much that I went back two weeks later with a... More

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.
