I had the Vegi Peanut Stir Fry withe shrimp. It was amazing. They have a new chef there that has really brought the food up to a much higher standard. As always the drinks and bartenders were great.

Always enjoy a meal at the "Tavern". Food is always good and they change up the specials often. Lynn is a fabulous waitress!

We've enjoyed eating at The Tavern at Rivers Edge several times a year for the past 10 years. The food and service are usually quite good (3.5*) but rarely outstanding — but we get a coupon from restaurant.com that makes it worthwhile. Tonight was terrible....More
