Had not been here since a football game a two seasons ago. At that time, I told the waiter the item I had was not great and he did not charge me for it. This time food was better, but did not make we want to go back anytime soon. My husband enjoyed his mussels which he had as a... More

Food and Service was good, but not great. I will do lunch here again; however, will not consider for dinner as as the place lacks "special event" atmosphere. Perhaps it is best for Friday evening "Happy Hour" and the great music.

The Tavern is a landmark in Great Falls. Their food is always consistent and the service at the Bar with Kelly is friendly and full of great conversation. I make hot sauces and their wings are great. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area. Very reasonable with pricing and a great overall atmosphere. Clean and professional.

Family met there on a Monday night to celebrate a birthday. It was not crowded (I assume because it was Monday night and a families with children were there). The menu offered everyone something they enjoyed and a clown stopped by the table and one person got a balloon cat. The service was great and the food mirrored our entire... More

Since the Tavern opened a few years ago, it has gradually become a top evening stop for dinner and music among Great Falls residents. While the Irish Brogue remains an all time favorite among old timers from Great Falls, the Tavern seems to be catching up. I think the Tavern may have a slight edge in its menu and food.... More

The is not good, over priced and very poor quality. I will not recommend it. There are other restaurants around the area that you can try.

Enjoyed another great Friday evening watching the Hoos beat Memphis in the bar at the Tavern. Atomic Burgers and Devil's Backbone 8 point on tap - great easy night out near Mclean

Pleasantly surprised on our first visit here. Nice to go to a non-chain corporate restaurant where the menu is always the same. Very reasonably priced. Tasty food. Will be going back often, even though children ran rampant throughout the restaurant. That's what Chuck E. Cheese is for.

But it isn't the Brogue. The menu is a little more pretentious than the Brogue, but the food is nowheres near as good. But then, the Great Falls villagers are divided into two groups: those who favor The Tavern, and those who favor the Brogue, and the twain never meet.

THere have been three or four restaurants in this location over the past 20 years, and this one got it right. Well priced, the entrees are varied but well prepared, with nightly specials. I try to eat here several times a month.
