Super festive and everything that I imagined that it would be. Food was very tasty with enough to take home. I will be making more appearances to this establishment!

A super casual bar, step above a dive. But the beer was good and the appetizers were delicious. Plus the pool tables and arcade games are a blast. Just a really good time, will definitely be back!

This is my second review of the Tavern and it really is a wonderful bar. You can sit and enjoy sports on TV with some friends or play pool, golden tee, or darts. Always, great food and I cannot wait to be back!

I've been here a few times but the last time I went a friend of mine was going away for a while so we got together before he left. We had a blast.
