We just left Afton Ridge. Sat in the bar area expecting faster seating and service. It took almost 90 minutes before food arrived and my fish and chips was cold. Afraid to send back since I really didn’t want to wait any longer. There is...no excuse just poor management.More

Been here 3times service always terrible staff looks miserable never a smile I have had better service from a soda machine. All 3 times were terrible. Today we waited for 45 min and we were never acknowledged. In the past food was okay to mediocre...at best I will never go back. STRIKE THREE. STAY AWAY. ITS BETTER TO GO DOWN THE ROAD TO 44 tavern and kitchen gourmet food and top notch service with a professional staffMore

My Wife and I visited on a Monday night while in the area. We sat in the bar area & the bartender checked on us right away. They had a good selection of craft beers which she got us right away. I ordered a tavern...burger and was pleased. The place is small but does have outdoor seating when it is warm. We will visit againMore

I’ve eaten at the Afton Tavern for years. With that being said, this place has simply declined in every way possible. The food is below average, the sanitation grade has progressively gotten worse, the staff looks miserable, and I still continue to give this establishment...business. Today, I decided to once again give it another shot. I arrived around 5pm at this place was pretty much empty on a Saturday evening, so I decided to have a beer and get my food to go since I was in the area. I have never had the wings and I can say that they were just meh...I can think of 10 other places nearby that have better ones. These wings were edible, but that’s about it, and I had the Tavern sauce which was nothing special. I did ask for them well done/extra crispy and they tasted rubbery. The Bud Light was the 25oz mug, but for $7.00 I could have gone to Hooters down the road and saved money. The only time I’ve ever paid that much for a Bud Light was at a concert which is expected. Overall, I like the location and it used to be really good. The ownership or management need to figure things out fast or they will be out of business by the time the next person decides to post a review. Go to Bojangles across the street and you will have better food and service.More

Decided to stop by for lunch. I was greeted and immediately seated. Sublime was on the radio which automatically put me at ease. The volume was perfect not too quiet and not overbearing. I asked the server (Brad) for his recommendation. He recommended The salmon...and I took his advice. The salmon was perfect, Smokey flavor and flakey but not overcooked. It. AME with a rice pilaf, steamed squash and zucchini and corn bread. Pilaf again not over cooked was very good and the corn bread was the perfect combination of sweet. Not overly dry either. I will be back and I highly recommend this location.More

The restaurant is closed to others, it has a nice mood atmosphere with outside dinner. The outside is next to the parking lot which is Ok but not the best far as experience. You will be eating and someone backs up into a space and...you hear and smell the exhaust from a car which changes the whole experience. Dine inside for sure and don't expect to be in a rush. The food is good quality and flavorful. Nothing terrible just don't expect awesome.More

We had a fantastic meal from start to finish. We were there on a Saturday around 2pm. We were promptly seated. Everything looked clean. We were immediately greeted by our waiter, Chris. Very nice guy. We told him that it was our first visit. He...told us that the cheese fries were very popular, so we started with those. Waffle fries with cheese and bacon. They were great! It was a large portion with lots of cheese... not just a tiny sprinkle. The entrees..just wow! I got the ribeye, grilled potatoes, cornbread, and soup. The steak was the best I have had in at least a decade. Perfect seasoning, no gristle whatsoever. Cooked as ordered. Everything on my plate was really good. My husband got one of the burgers. He said it was fantastic. It looked really good, I must say. We really wanted to try the cookie skillet. We saw one heading to another table. We just didn’t have room for another bite. There will definitely be a return visit! Oh..just be sure you are at the Tavern and not the Pub! They are across the street from each other.More

A large group of us from work had a reservation for a birthday party. When we arrived the owner had forgotten we had a reservation so we had to wait about 30 minutes for them to put tables together. We waited for drinks, even water...and waited even longer to get our food. Our reservation was at 7:30p. We didn’t sit down until close to 8p and we didn’t leave until 11p. Now I understand large groups are hard to accommodate in a small period of time however when everyone in your party gets their dinner in shifts it’s disappointing. No one wants to sit and watch their friends eat while they wait under 20-30 minutes for theirs. Not to mention when I got my food, it was cold. I wouldn’t return if I had a choice.More

I always check the 1-stars before writing a review... there were several for this establishment BUT the most recent was over a year ago. We stopped here on our way home from a hockey clinic. Hockey girl was hungry and her dad and I were...famished! We were greeted on entry by a very friendly and professional hostess who asked if we wanted to sit inside, at the bar, or the patio. Hockey girl wanted to sit outside, so guess where we were? There were several other customers sitting out there and we were placed at a table next to the fireplace, which, though the summer isn't quite gone, made the afternoon just a little more comfortable. Our waitress came out almost immediately and asked for our drink orders; Sprite for kidlett, and water for her dad and me. We asked for a beer list. By the time drinks arrived, we were ready to order. Tavern burger (plain, just ketchup) for the kid, Pork tacos for her dad and Tavern tacos for me. Also ordered a couple of beers (IPA for me and red ale for her dad). The beers came out in just a couple of minutes and the food was not long after that. The burger was perfect - just a little too big for the kid! It actually kept her quiet for a little while! The Pork was very flavorful... what would you expect from BBQ in Carolina? Both of those came with fries (think steak fries) and they added macaroni and cheese. Hockey girl and her dad shared that and were very satisfied with the creaminess of the sauce and the tenderness of the pasta. My Tacos (grilled chicken) came with small orders of pico, sour cream and guac. The sauce on the tacos had just the right amount of spice, offset by a little bit of sweet. We didn't stay for dessert, but the Jordan's Cookie Skillet really sounded delicious! Hockey girl is on a travel team this year, and we'll be back down this way a few times... this place has become our go-to location for food and drinks. Highly recommendedMore

There is one room on the right of the lobby that has a folding partition that opens to make a larger room. The capacity of that room would be maybe 60 people.
