We are looking for a place to eat while we strolled Las Olas Blvd., and decided to stop here. Had a limited lasted lunch menu, but cool options. Ordered a burger and a drink for a reasonable price, and it was good. Loved the bun stamped with the restaurant's name!

Ate lunch with some friends on a Saturday. They offer unlimited bloody Mary's or mimosas which 3 of us had. They were delish..2 had mimosa and 1 had bloody mary. We all ordered something different and everything was great. They bake all their own breads and pastries so the panini and pizza was excellent and huge..also had the wedge salad... More

I have been to this location multiple times. I went here last for a few friends for brunch. I personally do not like going here unless you get a table outside. If your inside in the back it can be somewhat creepy. They messed up my order which kinda surprising since it was Eggs Benedict. They couldn't poach an egg... More

You can walk Los Olas as long as you like and look at menus and prices but we decided on this place and so glad we did. Manuel took very good care of us and the wife had Los Olas lemonade and I had a craft beef that was super cold and her drink was awesome. It was hot so... More

For my daughter's 4th birthday we decided to have brunch and celebrate at Big City Tavern. The food was amazing! I had the breakfast pizza due to not being able to decide if I wanted breakfast, or lunch foods. The breakfast pizza was beyond yummy! The service was fabulous too! They personalized and decorated my daughter's cup, and made her... More

Staff and food are excellent- what more can you say about a place? Las Olas offers many great restaurants, but this should go at the top of your list!

We were here late on Sunday afternoon. A little too early for dinner, so we had drinks at the bar. Bartenders were great, very attentive and wanted to make sure you were happy with your drink. Later decided to have dinner and waitress was fantastic and food was absolutely wonderful.

Wasn't sure what to expect, considering its location among the many overpriced restaurants in the Las Olas district, but we found our meals to be well prepared and reasonably priced. Ample portions, a diverse menu, great service and a relaxed atmosphere all contributed to a positive dining experience. Definitely worth a return visit.

A great casual bar and restaurant on Las Olas, with comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. Waited for the rest of my group at the bar, and the bartender Alex as friendly, attentive and professional. My fresh swordfish special was delicious!

Been here a few times-- always a good time! This time it was remarkable and worthy of this review. Entering and being seated was as easy and free-flowing as the rest of our brunch was. The hostesses were pleasant and efficient. The manager was all smiles and micromanaging at its best-- which is what you would expect from a well-run... More

Big City Tavern is reminiscent of the great old taverns of Chicago, New York and Boston. The menu features fresh seafood, steaks, pasta and salads. Our extensive wine list emphasizes California varietals by the glass and bottle. Big City Tavern has a rotating selection of craft and specialty beers on tap and available in bottle. Desserts are all house made and all delicious.

Big City Tavern features high tin ceilings, wood floors and rustic brick walls. Patrons can take their place at our long oak bar or in the comfort of the dining room.
