First time visiting this business and boy did it disappoint. Had to ask to be served and when I asked for a menu told to scan the QR code. Tried to order a burger but no luck and did I mention how cold it was...inside. One Bud Light for $5.00 seems pricey to me. Just save yourself the trouble and don’t go.More

We were told that if was a hit or miss on service and quality of food by others who had gone here. We were fortunate that we had a good waitress and the food came out hot and tasty. We all had burgers and they...were cooked to order. The fries were good. Love the interior decorations with all the wood. Would come back when in the area.More

Apparently, they were very busy with bear hunting season. Diner took an hour. The food had potential, but the hamburger bun was cold, the Oyster Rockefeller was under-cooked, and the rib-eye steak(supposedly grilled) was pink to the edge of the meat. Another ward, the primary...method of cooking was not grilling which yielded a tasteless steak. The fries were really good. The meal was unimpressive and took forever, but it was bear season.More

We went to Spoon River the first night and it was wonderful but expensive so we wanted to pay less our 2nd night in town. This was recommended by family and proved tasty and well priced with a pleasant waitress and good food. Yes go...there. And if you wonder why the water is in the street and you have to step around it, know this: all water around Belhaven exists in the streets. The level is high in the rivers and sound. When high tide comes, some of the streets get water than leaves when the tide subsides.More

Good food. Service can be slow. Good family place. Ambiance is like an upscale sports bar. Prices fair. Pizza and burgers are best.

We first ate here in January while waiting for our boat to be fixed. We happened to try it on Wednesday night which was seafood night. The crab imperial stuffed rock was perfect with baked potato and asparagus as sides. The asparagus was plump, tender...and tasty. The rib eye was tender, cooked to medium with a baked sweet potato. And asparagus. The rolls were hot, tasted like home made and they were served with real butter patties. It was winter so they were steady to capCity.busy but certainly not full Our second visit was in April for Prime Rib Night. This was a full to capacity, need reservations night. Somehow, we walked in and were seated almost immediately. We asked for end cuts and the waitress ask the kitchen to hold the last one for us. Cooked to medium, both portions were excellent with enough left over for sandwiches at home the next day. The baked potatoes and broccoli were cooked to perfection. Again the rolls and butter were hot and delicious. Our third experience was a little difference. We knew that Prime Rib Night at the Tavern was popular and we like the end cut so we looked up their hours on line to see about going early. We arrived at five after five and were welcomed and seated promptly. We ordered our meals with our drinks. The waitress radioed back to the kitchen tosa e two end cuts, finished taking our order, brought our drinks and rolls. We observed people being told that it was an hour wait which did not seem to make sense as one other couple were the first to arrive. Then parties of, six, ten,four,two all walked in with reservations. In just a few minutes the house was full and people were waiting for that hour. The salad came early and was basic iceberg lettuce, two cucumber slices, some tomatoes and a couple of onion slices. Both the balsamic and blue cheese dressings were excellent. Dinner arrived. The first end cut was wonderful, cooked to order with broccoli cooked to soft as ordered and a lackluster baked potato. The second end cut was half the size of the first and was not an end cut and as over cooked to well done. When taken back, the waitress said, “Oh, it is an end cut, but for some reason the cook cut a slice off before giving the end cut to you.” The lack luster twice baked potato was probably frozen out of a box, just not what was expected from our previous visits. This waitress was the same one we have had each time we visited the Tavern. She has always been pleasant, attentive and everything one could want for a waitress. Her unconcern comment about the end cut was surprising. Otherwise, she continued to get high marks for a competent server. Each time we visited the bill has been between eighty and ninety dollars including tip. This is a little pricy but certainly the quality of the meal is worth it to us.More

This restaurant is a surprisingly terrific experience. The food is well prepared, the decore is nice, and the service is excellent. I've visited lovely Belhaven many times, and this restaurant became my hang-out. The menu selection is surprisingly wide ranging, with tempting fresh caught options...often on the menu. While not typically a beer drinker, I tried and enjoyed a special dark lager available for a limited time, and found it outstanding. If you're looking for a nice place for lunch or dinner in Belhaven and surrounding regions (including Washington), this is the restaurant for you.More

The food is absolutely delicious, especially the meat pizza, but it takes a very long time to get your food. Every single time my family and I have gone there, which has been four times now, we have had to wait quite a long time...to be seated, to get our drinks, and even longer to get our food. The food is so yummy that my husband and I have decided to try it again sometime.More
