We returned to the Tavern for the 1st time in years. The new management team has this place serving outstanding meals. Our large group experienced excellent service with huge portions of tasty midwestern fare.

Excellent fried chicken served family style with killer sides! It just doesn’t get any better! Cute little town with a few shops and a small local theater. But the real show stopper is this restaurant setting. So warm and cozy.

Historic in nature but my wife and I were not that impressed with the food. If you want to go there I would recommend that you make reservations for on production dates they will be rather crowded.

There was multiple food selections. It was very good. The only problem is that they kept changing the desserts.
