Good Food, Brews, & Music at The Lounge

The Lounge section of The Tavern has some great menu options at very reasonable prices. Comfy and cozy, with a large outdoor deck for the puffers. Really good, attentive service and some awesome live music on the weekends. Family-friendly and comfortable for kids, seniors, and all ages in between... read more

One of the best breakfasts you'll ever have. Big portions at a low price in a great atmosphere. In the basement of the Archer House

My wife and I went to the Tavern for dinner on 12/30. We both ordered the steak (NY Strip) and shrimp. Both dinners arrived and my steak tasted strange (bad). My wife tried it and spit it out. The waitress was very apologetic and ordered a new steak (we thought I should try the sirloin instead). The new steak arrived... More

We stayed at the Archer House River Inn and the Tavern is on the basement level. We had dinner at night and then breakfast in the morning. If you are staying at the Inn there's no reason to go out and try and find a better place for either meal. Good prices, good selection, good service, even when busy. I... More

This has been my 'go to' place whenever I am in Northfield. In the past, this has been a favorite of mine. This dinner visit was disappointing. Of the 4 of us, 2 did did not like their entree at all; the third thought it was just okay. We all ordered different things.... Service was slow. Wait staff very pleasant.... More

We had breakfast here and it was good. Typical cafe type breakfast food. It was good and the server was friendly. It was very busy and a little slow but we were not in a hurry. Very convenient if staying at the Archer. We had a good breakfast and nothing to complain about.

One of our favorite places to have breakfast in Northfield (love the Eggs Benedict), it is also good for lunch and dinner. Tucked into the lower level of the hotel, one feels like one is in a cave - very cozy and friendly. In the summer you can sit outside and watch the Cannon River lazily go by...
