About
Tavern is the city's cool-casual, "gastro-pub" concept. Established as a local "foodie favorite", the inspired cuisine is fun and creative, yet accessible to most any palate. Tavern's bar features an extensive list of wines, spirits, beers, and dazzling cocktails. Both cozy and socially stimulating, Tavern's posh wraparound booths and mezzanine seating offer great views of the energetic bar scene. Fourteen TVs display all the important games, and our DJs spin music and videos later in the night. A large, bi-level patio offers al fresco dining and socializing. Tavern also offers private rooms ideal for special events.

Excellent food in a trendy setting. Happily greeted at the door. Sat at the bar. Service at the bar was indifferent. Other customers noticed it too despite bar only half full. Would likely visit again and sit on patio or dining room.

This place was fantastic. This is our 3rd time coming to the Tavern and it never disappoints. Great food, service, and atmosphere. I recommend that you stop here when in Nashville. Also, Sunday’s they do 2 for 1 drinks. 😍

Had The Tavern Burger at lunch today with Bleu cheese and griddled onions and mushrooms. The service was excellent. This is the best burger I've ever had. It's a nice place. I would highly recommend this place.
