This is a no frills bar, popular for weekday happy hours and boasting very accommodating bartenders. The food isn't bad. Usually some live music and a pool table powered by quarters.

Love the taller chairs on the outside patio, great for smoking, drinking, and watching the bustle of downtown. Also, high marks for some really great service and awesome bartenders. We'll be coming back to the Tavern for sure!

The happy hour, music, bartenders and drinks are all fantastic. This place reminds me of taverns back in Wisconsin. If you are looking to watch sports, hang with friends, watch live music or play pool downtown, this is the place for you!
