“A Strong 5*”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

I almost hesitate to give it 5* as more of you will stop by and take up the few valuable tables they have here! Seriously though, the food is nicely presented and tasty. The prices are on-par for STX and probably a better value comparitively. There is A/C in the bar that is actually cool (a rare commodity in STX). As other have written, the freshly cut duck-fat fries are so delicious and generously presented in a bucket.

“Lives Up To The Hype!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

WOW! This place is fabulous. I started out excited to go here, after reading all the wonderful reviews. Walked up to the place and saw the menu in the window and decided on the "award winning" burger with lobster before I ever walked into the place. It's very small, only five or so tables and then some bar seats, and they don't take reservations. We walked in on a Saturday evening around 545 and were the only people in the place. Within 15 minutes, every seat was full. I was disappointed to hear they were out of lobster, after having decided on that already. I settled for the special Wagyu burger with deep fried pickles and cheddar cheese, and of course, the famous duck fat French fries. We started with the macaroni and cheese and it was delish. In fact, everything was! The burger was one of the best I've ever had, the fries lived up to the hype and the Key Lime Crush drink the bartender whipped up for me (with local Cruzan rum) was excellent. Try it, you certainly won't be sorry!

“Best Burgers and Beer In Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We love this place. The beer selection is out of this world and the servers know their stuff. Crazy selection of burgers and ours were perfectly cooked. I went all out with the "Award winning best burger", which is topped with lobster and an amazing caramelized truffle aioli. Just when I thought my taste buds had died and gone to heaven I tasted the duck fat fries, dipped in said ailoi. It just doesn't get any better than this!
Tavern 1844 is in a beautiful old building, check it out!
