I just can't tell you my history with this historic water hole! It goes back decades, but not as far as when the father first opened the place back in 1949! Back when it was a real dive ( the 1960's to the 1980's) and...More

First time visiting the McKean Tavern. It has all of the staples of bar food plus numerous salads appetizers and more. There is ample seating inside and outside in the better weather. We went after. Round of golf in the upper 80’s. Loved it!!

Small local spot to get dinner and have a drink. The food is good with specials every night. Wing night is very popular and the flavors are good and unique!

This place has really turned it around since renovating and going no smoking. Food is 10 times better and it's no longer dark and smokey. Live music or new jukebox for tunes, darts, or pool. Pepper rings are fantastic!

Best place in town for breakfast. Large selection of food with good coffee and friendly service. Always worth the drive on Sunday morning.

This is a small and friendly place to quench your thirst, enjoy a wonderful burger, or listen to local musicians play. Lunch is second to none Monday through Friday. A nice selection of draught and bottle beer are always cold. The wait staff is friendly...More
