The staff was amazing! Food was just ok. The ranch dressing was the best part of my salad. I think I would stick to a burger

Young and friendly staff. Generally attentive. Lot's of big screens to watch games. The noise level can get to be a bit much. Not a place for romantic lunch or dinner if games are playing.

Stopped for a late lunch with my honey. Service was good and the food was good. She enjoyed three soft shell tacos and I had a patty melt...a bit over salted. Nothing really special just good food and service. Beer selection was very good but...More

Tav was very accommodating to our group. On a Saturday night, with most wait times around 90 minutes, Tav made room for our group of 15. Great pub food and atmosphere. Slightly pricey for the food.
