It's been a while since we have been to this restaurant but the downhill slide of the kitchen and service was quite unexpected. We like brunch and especially the lobster omelet which to this point had always been really good with tarragon scallion sauce, cheddar...More

How can you go wrong with a place where kids eat free! Service is ok, food is tasty, & they have a nice selection of items. I had a Lobster Grilled Cheese and it was very rich, but very yummy.

Find ourselves heading to The Tavern every week after golf. Burgers are outstanding, and so are their special sandwiches. Happy hours are generous and friendly, with delicious 60-cent buffalo wings on Mondays. High tables, booths or bar. A friendly place that's quiet enough to have...More
