“Great patio seating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Patio was great! The food was good. My meal the Prime Rib Dip was ok, not as flavorful as expect, but still good. My wife order penne, pasta with shrimp and alfredo and it was excellent! Wait staff was friendly, and knowledgeable.

“Location can't overcome the lackluster service and poor value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The setting for the tavern is perfect, in the middle of the lions head square. Both indoor and outdoor seating with views of the mountains or plaza. The menu has good variety and the brussel sprouts are wonderful. The menu is very expensive for what you get. We ordered pasta and got a small portion for $16. We told the service person that we were going to a concert and needed to be in and out in 45 minutes and they said no problem. When we needed to leave I had to send the others along and wait for the check and to pay and the server was indifferent to the fact.

“Enjoyable Breakfast On The Patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Breakfast here on our last day in Vail (Saturday). The most popular place for breakfast in Vail is The Little Diner, but it IS LITTLE!. No time to wait in line outside that morning. The Tavern provides an ample breakfast buffet that suits both the adults AND the children. Service is not quick and efficient, but the food is good. It's pretty difficult to mess up breakfast. My Veggie Omelet was done properly and I enjoyed the baby fingerling potatoes that accompanied it. The other two adults shared Eggs Benedict. French Toast and Belgian Waffle were the kids choices. French Toast was available on the buffet, but it took quite a while to be served the Waffle. The patio gets busy very quickly so would suggest that you get an early start as the Wait Staff seems to have difficulty "picking up the pace". The Arabelle prices do carry over to the Tavern!

“Nice lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Met friends here for lunch. Can definitely recommend the BBQ Chicken Sandwich, fries were good too. We sat on the patio at the base of the Vista Bahn lift - lots of activity. Our waitress (Cait) was attentive and friendly. It did take a long time for our food to come out - so some kibble to nosh on might be nice. The entrees were all hot though and my table mates seemed to enjoy the French onion soup and Buffalo burger. When a heavy rain hit, Cait graciously moved us inside where we enjoyed the coconut sorbet.
