Lakeport doesn't have many bars but definitely old world tavern is one of the best. its a very small bar with nice and friendly staff...I guess there's a band playing every friday and sat... if you are in Lakeport i highly recommend you to stay at Skylark hotel and enjoy the night at Old world tavern :)

Love this place! We go to the Old World Tavern quite often with our friends. Although at times it can get busy and there needs to be more help, we have always loved the food! The fish or shrimp & chips are excellent as well as the Euro burger. Actually, every thing we have tried, we have liked. The service... More

Went in on a 2 Dollar Tuesday, and ordered fried dill pickles for fun. Loved them. Then I had the Euro Burger, which a bigger burgher than I would normally want, but I was really hungry...and I was not disappointed! It was perfect and the flavors all worked together wonderfully. I added mushrooms and grilled onions to mine 'cause that's... More

Good food, good beverages and some live music for entertainment. Seating is a bit tight and the atmosphere is no frills. Staff are friendly and mostly attentive, although orders at my table of two were delivered at different time which was awkward.

Old world Tavern is Lakeport's "Cheers"... You see the local characters but also tourists and everybody seems to get along very well. The place is intimate, and they pour between 8-10 beers on tap. The Reuben sandwiches are great, but they always seem to have a daily special and certain nights you can come down and have discounted drink specials.... More

I have read other reviews on this place of the euro burger so I decided to try it after work one night. I added bacon and it was amazing. Perfectly cooked, I ordered it medium, and very tasty. It took the waitress a minute to even acknowledge me at the bar, since I wanted my order to go. That's the... More

Arrived in Lakeport hungry and tired on a Monday night. No place but this was open. Good: Food -- 4 of our 5 were happy with their pub-grub meals and beers; the staff did not charge unhappy #5, who ate none of the dish. Not so good: Loud! (OK, it's a bar, just letting you know.) Server was cheerful but... More

My husband and I don't get to go out often between work and family, but we decided to sneak out on a Monday evening and try this restaurant out. When we arrived it wasn't busy. Only two tables taken and a couple of people at the bar. The waitress told us to take a seat wherever we wanted. After we... More

We visited on a Friday night and had a good meal, live music and decent prices. I had the Euro Burger, 1/2 pound Angus with salami and pancetta, my wife had the cottage pie, both were very tasty and portions big enough to provide lunch the next day. Music was good, bar prices decent. A good spot for a good... More
