“A unique experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

This little place is a rare gem in this area. You could very easily drive right past it so it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. The atmosphere is very nice and you are immediately made to feel at home. It is a popular place so I would recommend reservations. There is a piano bar and a very strong wine list. The food is very good with a wide array to try.

If you are in the area or just driving by on your way up north this is a must stop for quality food.

“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2015

I love this place. It is cozy and comfortable but with a flair of fine dining. THe food is superb. I go there with my nephew for GF options, which are abundant. HAd the Harvest salad last time - wonderful. If you want to try a different experience, check out T27!

“Very unique and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2015

Tavern 27 is our version of "Cheers". We eat there so often that we're treated like part of the family, which is common practice at this wonderful Tapas restaurant. Leslie and Ray - the owners of Tavern 27 are truly hands-on. Leslie, a gifted chef, designs and creates her unique salads and tapas in her kitchen. Ray runs the bar/restaurant and is so friendly and always willing to share a word or story without being intrusive. The staff is also incredibly friendly and, once they get to know you, they have your favorite drink ready and waiting almost before you sit down. The food offerings are a unique American twist on traditional european tapas. The variety of options are huge and affordable and include vegetables, poultry, seafood, chicken, pork, beef and more. They even serve delicious salads, soups, and pizza. Leslie's desserts are mouth watering. Excellent atmosphere as well. Tavern 27 provides a very unique experience in every way imaginable in an antique house on a golf course that also provides some great entertainment if you love to golf! Reservations definitely recommended because, even if you arrive early and it seems that their are tables available, that's because there's a set second seating and those later seats are claimed by reservation and are in very heavy demand!

“Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2015

This place is different from any other place I've been to in the area with affordable tapas, great beer selection, and a very unique and rustic environment on the first floor of a large house. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. There is a small bar with seating for about 3-4, however I do not believe there is a TV so while it's a great place for families, couples and friends, don't come expecting to watch a game.

“What A Find!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2015

Do not judge this book by its cover. We stopped here with friends for a late lunch. The tapas were not the usual tapas. Gourmet, gourmet, gourmet. Definitely get the brussel sprouts and the haddock, but the duck confit rolls with asian sauce was my favorite. The owner was such a great host, and funny, too. Atmosphere; homey, eclectic, spotlessly clean.
