1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2010

Soup was cold and needed to be sent back to the kitchen. Food is overpriced ($42 lunch for 5). Sandwiches and chili were only average. The stale beer aroma and tacky Jimmy Buffet bar atmosphere is not good for the appetite. Waitress was friendly and apologized for the cold food, but, she was also slow and inattentative. Avoid this place.

We are trying to clarify that we are a new establishment and clearly your experience with Black River Tavern will be different than that of our predecessor. This review, dated August 17, 2010 was well before Black River Tavern opened its doors on July 1, 2011. Come in this fall as we will just be introducing our soups...I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
