Great place for drinks, lunch, or dinner. French onion soup is phenomenal, and their taco night is awesome. I don't eat seafood but the lobster roll and lobster corn chowder soup are unreal according to the wife. Highly recommend.

Great food and good prices. Casual atmosphere and varied menu. French onion soup is great as well as the burger with egg and bacon on a large English muffin!

My husband and I enjoy eating here all the time! I also enjoy brunch-ing with my friends often at Tavern! My husband and I love the menu selection, my favorite thing to order is the Salmon BLT!! I would definitely recommend Tavern for any occasion!

It was as in prompt to family reunion of of two brothers families and grandpa and grandma! We had a great time. Food was great all ten of us. Not one complaint and we had three teenagers with us and one child. They all found Pokemon! Good place for a group and took reservations!

This location has had a string of restaurants, but it's been Tavern for 3-4 years now. The restaurant inside tends to be very noisy, but it's much quieter outside on the patio.

Was our first time visiting this establishment. The food was ok, not the best for the money we spent. Our waiter was not personable at all. We will never visit this place again. Not worth it for the $77 for lunch!

I went to Tavern tonight and sat the bar and had a pretty decent dinner. I had a salad with figs and arugula with Gorgonzola cheese and a rib steak with a peppercorn sauce on it and it was done right!
