A very pleasant evening had by my group. We ordered a variety of items off the menu and all were prepared to our liking. The restaurant itself was classic but very relaxed. The bar was full of what appeared to be regulars as they carried on conversations with the bartender. The dining room area was spacious and the tables were... More

If you want a great salad or a generous burger, hit the Town Tavern. The cozy booths and friendly service make this Great Falls staple a place I enjoy revisiting frequently. And if you have grandkids, take them here. There's a full kids' menu and crayons at the ready.

Solid consistent performance from the back of the house at The Tavern. Lots of good choices on the menu and you can get in and out in very reasonable amount of time. Another plus is that it doesn't put a huge drain on the wallet. Have been going for years and have not ever been disappointed.

Was in Great Falls for the business meeting and we decided to eat at The Tavern for lunch. It was a great environment to sit down and have a casual business meal. I ordered the steak salad which was very good and enough food for 2 people. Would definitely recommend The Tavern for a casual meal option.

I had the Atomic burger which from the name I expected the buffalo onion rings to be explosive with flavor...not so much, actually. It was cooked to my specification of "rare" so that was positive. Another positive is that you can smoke on the patio.

Ok, so I have been a customer at the Tavern in Great Falls, Va. for over a decade now and I must say their Buffalo Wings are DANK, that means they are great. Perceived value is there with the large size of the wings and the delicious wing sauce. I will say the blue cheese dressing is a little runny... More

We can't imagine who would go back. Food is terrible but cheap. Diners were scruffy and kids everywhere. Place feels so dirty we took showers when we got home. Don't plan to return.

They have a lot of choices a good burger platter to Short ribs. I think a little something for everyone. We went it was slow and had a great experience with... More

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
