This was good! I wasn't blown away but I wasn't disappointed. Next time I will get dessert!!! They looked amazing. Our service was excellent. The best I have had in a while. It was slightly pricey for the location, but I would return.

Overall the food is good. The salmon and prime rib was excellent. My shrimp and grits were good but had them just grill it instead of BBQ sauce. Why hid the flavor of shrimp? The southern ham and chicken cordon blue were terrible. The chicken was just a slab of chicken, pieces of deli ham and a slice of cheese.... More

We have been to Tavern many, many times and it always exceptional! We have tried the salmon (often), the steaks, the ham/crab cakes, the specials and LOVE everyone of them, The staff is very attentive and the atmosphere very relaxing!

We have eaten there in the past but decided to give it another chance. Service was very slow and they were not that busy. We had to ask several times for drinks. Appitizers were acceptable soup was full of crab shells. As for our steaks they were not cooked as ordered they arrived cold. When our waitress asked how our... More

Our group of 7 ate at the Tavern on a Friday evening in the upstairs dining room. Atmosphere was cozy and fun and we enjoyed looking around the dining room at all of the unusual decorations. Dining room was busy with a number of large groups. We received our drinks, bread, soup/salads in a timely manner. Dinner took a little... More

I heard about TotR from a friend and having past it many times headed to Ashland finally decided to have a night out with my wife. It's true that no matter the location, if a restaurant is worth it people will come to dine. TotR is out in the country, way out and not a place you'd happen upon. It's... More

We enjoy going to Tavern on the Rails. The stuffed mushrooms are excellent. The seafood is good as well. It is a little pricey.

We went here for the first time on s Friday evening. We entered through the downstairs door off the patio, having seen online that the fine dining was upstairs. The downstairs offered the same menu plus less expensive sandwich options. When we entered we were seated by a waitress dressed in a large baggy tee shirt with air brushed names... More

This is a very quaint and nice historical restaurant located right on the railroad in nice beautiful country. Whether you want to go casual or dress up, it is delightful either for a family and friend gathering or for a romantic evening. If more informality is desired one can just go to the Pub downstairs. I have gone to the... More
