Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon figuring we would get lunch and watch the 49ers, game starting at 1pm. Came in at the end of the morning games and the place was inexplicably filled with Ravens fans. Had a great time watching them eke out a win against the jaguars with the crowd. The food is very very good, esp... More

Pretty good food at pretty good prices, for Carmel. Lively and loud. Waitresses get a bit overwhelmed when it gets busy. Good place for watching sports and getting tavern type food.

As we stayed at the Hotel Carmel we spent a couple of great nights in the Tavern at the end of the day. Rob the barman was a great host and worked really hard to look after us. A great atmosphere too with lots of laughter with everyone.

We dropped in here for a beer and ended in having some food too. The barman was really friendly and chatty, a bit of a character. The tomato soup was really tasty and the short rib chips was a meal in itself. Good chat, good beer, good food!

Short rib fries are ridiculous. Rueben calzone is dough gooey goodness. Fun sports bar on the corner of happiness.

Great little spot on the corner - several booths and a nice comfortable bar with tvs, friendly bar staff and good drinks- menu looked great too. An unpretentious place but not a sports bar either.

Staff were lovely and provided table service after we bought our first drink at the bar and moved to a table. It does seem predominantly a sorts bar, but they have a good choice of beer and wine available. Staff didn't seem too keen on asking a rather drunk woman to quiten down, even when a large family with young... More
