Ruined the night! They advertise they are “Home of the UFC” but weren’t playing UFC 217 in any room unless you were part of a ‘private party’. Food on the lower end of average, small portions... will not return.

The places is great. Three big rooms (a fourth for horse races.) Large and small screen TVs everywhere! Excellent menu. Lots of choices for food and beverages. Managers and staff are great. We were there most of the day for football, food and friends.

We had happy hour at OC Tavern last night. I had forgotten how good their street tacos are. We'll do that again soon!

Great place off the freeway and close to the Hampton Inn if you happen to be staying there. I was able to walk to this place for a bite to eat. It was a great local spot with a great atmosphere and food.

Got there early, food was great. Staff was extremely accommodating. Our waitress was a sweetheart. Saw Keith Harkin that night. ( He was great, as always ). Have been to OC Tavern before, will not hesitate to return. Thank you

Ate late night dinner here. Family had Cobb salad and Turkey burgers. Typical bar food. Fast, friendly service. Reasonably priced. Loud bar atmosphere. Multiple sports televisions.

Really nice restaurant very close to freeway exits. The menu has a large selection of foods. We had lunch that was very good especially the clam chowder soup. The service was great and very prompt.
