We stopped in on a rainy Tuesday night for a bite and found the offerings to be many. We began with drinks and some cheese curds which we were delicious. My lady choose the chicken tenders and I selected the patty melt with onion rings....We were very pleased with both. The Tavern was having a dart tournament & karaoke planned for later in the evening and the staff was busy setting up for that but still attentive to our needs.More

Very good food. Enjoyed the prawns and cheese curds especially. Everything was delicious. Only reason it’s not a 5 is the service is indeed slower than your usual place. But this is customary for places around the world where the quality is always above the...speed. Europe has there course meals set in stone on slow slow and continuous.More

Don’t bother is all I can say. Food was good but extremely slow. After asking us to be ready to go by 6:15 they made the wrong order after we waited for an hour. Then the waitress told us we had to move and they...were nice enough to let us sit there in the first place.More

Food was obviously premade, and cool time was over an hour. Very disappointing. Kitchen obviously uses a microwave.

This is the 3rd time we've gone out of our way to patronize this local restaurant. Today is our LAST time to Ebel's. Their menu has been reduced a lot and the prices are even higher now than before. Our dinner came out lukewarm and...the fries were not extra crispy as requested. Spinach dip was awful and chips were way over salted. The hubbies burger was not great either. We asked about the significant cuts in the menu and were told the new management is working on the menu choices. SO disappointed!!! We will not be back! Don't see this restaurant lasting much longer.More

Well….we’ve been here 70 minutes and still don’t have our food. We arrived when they opened. Their brunch menus is very limited and yet they still did not have what I ordered. Not a good impression on my first and last visit here.

My husband had seen billboards advertising this establishment on the interstate for a while. The sign had scallops that looked awesome and he loves them, so we decided to give it a try. I called and made a reservation which was a good idea because...the place filled up quickly. Well, NO SCALLOPS for him!!! They hadn’t had them since COVID hit. Please change your advertising to reflect your menu changes!!! I order a salad with ranch. NO RANCH!!! They ran out yesterday. Well, go get some or make it. If you know your out, do something about it!!!! My husband order ahi tuna which was over cooked and dry. He said the rice was good. 🤪. I had the Chardonnay chicken which was delicious. It was supposed to come on a bed of rice. NO RICE!!! It was not worth the price we paid. They waitress was kind and friendly.More

A nice little place with a good atmosphere. We had a "yes and no" experience with the food. What was good, was very very good. My wife's ribeye, not so much. They have a good variety on their menu. We will probably give it another...chance on our next visit to the area.More

Great experience! The grouper & the snapper were very good. The house salad was fresh & all the sides we ordered were filling & delicious. Service was friendly & prices aren’t bad. We loved the ambiance. We plan to return.

I love supporting small town restaurants and so loved this place in the fall of 2019. We met the owner who obviously took pride in his place. We had fried green tomatoes and sandwiches with the seared broccoli. All was excellent. Fast forward to our...return trip today. Service was good....not an issue. Very pleasant. In fact...thats the only reason we did not send anything back. The tomatoes were ok. The entrees not so much. The same seared broccoli that was crunchy and delicious 2 years ago was butter soaked and soggy, the wings tasted maybe like they were microwaved? The Bonsai stir fry was terrible with not fresh and possibly frozen vegetables. We so hope it was an off day and not the norm now. Before we left I went inside to use the restroom and was hit with a horrible smell . Musty, urine smell. The restaurant is below grade so maybe there is an issue with the plumbing ? We ate in there 2 years ago and it was fine and didn't smell that. I am hoping that this review will prompt some changes back to the quality we enjoyed before The ambiance and music has great potential but not if food this bad. I am sure it can be better because it used to be.More

I live about twenty minutes from Carthage, so it's been really nice for the last few years to have a restaurant like this so close by. Other reviewers speak of slow service. I can't speak to their experience, all I can say is I've eaten...there 15 to 20 times and have never had cause for complaint. The spicey cheese steak sandwich is amazing, and the beer is great.More

Burgers have toasted buns which makes them like in and out burgers. Really tasty. Pub has dart boards.

We stopped in to try out some local beer and ordered some food also. The beer was good as well as the food. We had ordered there Tavern Burger and Spicy Cheesesteak sandwiches. They were very good.

We were in the area and decided we were hungry. Checking the online reviews led us to Ebel's Tavern and we were glad we found it. From our server, Christine, to the food, it was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and Christine...was very proactive in meeting all of our needs. We enjoyed the cheese steak with a side of sweet potato fries, and the Reuben with a side of onion rings. It was VERY GOOD and we will definitely be back. Nice ambiance.More
