We had a great meal. Love, love LOVED the shrimp ceviche. Great atmosphere and service. The only "complaint" I would have is the background noise. But it IS a pub so that is kind of expected. Also, it is probably not a secret how great...everything is so it was crowed ;) Will definitely be back whenever in the areaMore

We had a wonderful meal here while visiting Cottonwood. I had the fish tacos and they were the best fish tacos I have ever had. The atmosphere was great and the building was quite interesting. I will definitely visit again.

We stayed at the Tavern Hotel, right next door. It's a fine grill offering good food and an extensive bar.

Stopped in for lunch and sat at the bar. Food was good and portions big ( had to get boxes to bring some home). Special requests/substitutes were not a problem. Service was very good, and we were very impressed and appreciative that the manager stopped...by to check on how our food/dining experience was.More

on a hot Arizona day stopping at the Grill you can get a cool refreshing beer or a mule or anything else to cool you off. If it is to hot for a burger tri the Ahi tuna salad.

We had the best service on their outdoor patio. Our server (Alex??) definitely made our visit wonderful. Delicious cocktails and Arizona wine courtesy of the Tavern Hotel. Would definitely return to further explore and enjoy.

We’ve been traveling for the past 10 days and this is the best meal we’ve had. Outstanding service, ambiance and quality. My husband had the stroganoff- nice balance of meat and noodles. Nice and creamy! I had the ahi tuna salad- perfect seasonings and tuna...cooked just right. Highly recommend! Nice surprise driving through this small town!More

The Tavern Grille is a wonderful place to eat. Food was fresh and plentiful. Our server Natalia was AMAZING!! We came for lunch. Laid back vibe. So many menu choices and the tavern Mojito was so refreshing.
