Wild Rice Melt was terrific! I am not a vegetarian, but when I saw this on the menu it just looked so interesting and flavorful (Asiago, Gouda, wild rice, cranberry bread!), I had to try it. And it was terrific! The waitress warned me it...More

Interesting menu and tasty food. Our waitress was very attentive. The place was busy (on a weekday early evening) but the food arrived in a timely manner and we did not feel rushed.

After visiting UMD, our family decided on Tavern on the Hill for lunch. We typically don't go up the hill when we are visiting Duluth, but our college visit brought us to the area. What a great restaurant and we will for sure be back....More

Overall I was excited to finally try this place. The food was not very good. Expensive for a hamburger. I got the Tavern Burger, and wasn't a huge fan. I went with my wife, and parents. Only 3 of us had alcohol, and the bill...More

Though our son—who attends school @ the nearby UMD—spotted a “Tavern” ad promising a traditional style T-Day meal, what my wife & I settled for instead were uninspiring, open-faced & gravy-smothered Turkey sandwiches on not-very-good bread. The little cranberry sauce (which our over-worked waiter confused...More

And we’re not even vegetarians. Four of us joined there for dinner this evening, having heard good reviews. Must have been a different place. The sirloin tips appetizer was very tough; the ahi tuna appetizer was dried out; the Brussel sprouts appetizer was steamed and...More

Great food and atmosphere! Ate the Velvet Elvis burger with peanut butter and an egg. Great combination of flavor. Friendly and patient staff and a large menu of items.

Decent bar food; good burgers (although "pink" was served almost rare), sweet potato fries. Grilled shrimp on the salad were stone cold and too salty, not much avocado on the plate. Large place by UMD, very nice staff.

The Tavern has some great gluten-free offerings. I'm GF too, so that is something I look for in a good restaurant. One of my favorites is their Sweet Potato "Burger." You can order it on a gluten-free bun or a "regular... More
