“Who knew...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Happened upon Tavern 24 today while out shopping (it is in the back of the "new part" of Gaston Mall looking at Target) and we are so glad that we gave it a try. Great food, I had the Calabash Chicken and hubby had the Blackened Bleu burger, and we both enjoyed a side salad (artisan lettuces, fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, and a delish bread stick)...YUM!!!! Joshua was a super waiter, very friendly and attentive. The bar and patio looked fun as well, we are looking forward to going back for dinner soon to see the nightlife!

“Large hole in the wall, adjacent to main bar, is less than desirable on a cold December night.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Staff is great, food is good but large hole in the wall is a mistake, at least in December. I had a wonderful hamburger, Carolina style, had a great time but large hole in the wail ruined the whole thing.

“Patio Baby!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I love this place for all these reasons:
1) the big patio is great even in the winter thanks to all the heat lamps. Part of the bar is outside.

2) lots of craft beers on draft. I wish they had more wheat beers though.

3) wide selection of food. The veggie burger is a spicy delight.

4) good service.

5) cool atmosphere.

“Good new place in Gastonia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Overall a very good experience. The restaurant is only about a month in business but they seem to have a good plan in place for customer service, preparation and serving food. My wife and I arrived at 515 on a Friday evening and were seated right away. The restaurant was already quite busy. Within a few minutes there was a line but people were seated and served quickly. The wait staff to customer ratio was much higher than the average restaurant and this contributed nicely to the efficiency.

Our server was friendly and helpful. We are vegetarians and when we asked regarding the soup of the day, she quickly provided 4 vegetarian soups. They sounded delicious but we had the house salad and the vegetarian pizza. The salad was fresh and the pizza was hot and served just as we finished the salad. We noticed that the other tables around us were receiving the same quick, courteous and correct service (by this I mean that tables were not getting other tables orders). Considering how busy the restaurant was we were impressed.

Marcus, one of the managers, asked us how things were and we said we would definitely be back. He also said they were able to accommodate groups (just give them a heads up 45 minutes or so to confirm availability).

When we were ready to leave it took us a few moments but the "clean up crew" did not rush us and were very polite and waited until we were clear of the table to begin cleanup.

We look forward to visiting again with other friends to try the other menu items. There is an outside area with a "fire pit table" that was being enjoyed by another group.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We loved Tavern 24. Ella was our server. She was excellent!! She checked on us often and went "over the top" to meet our requests. The bases loaded burger was super. We also had the Birdie (chicken sandwich) and it was very good. We loved the fries!! The beer selection was great. The heated outdoor seating is a great plus. We will certainly visit again soon.
