“Corner Tavern & Grill... new location, food not their strong point”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

FOOD:
About a year ago I ate at the Cary version of this "Corner Tavern" restaurant and was excited about the pub fair, until my burger that arrived. 12 months later, I'm at the Apex restaurant on a recent Saturday night. It was hopping with a terrific band and a casual fundraiser happening. The wait staff was doing a great job accommodating everyone. The menu seemed about the same as Cary, and I probably ordered the same Cheeseburger platter. It looked good, and cooked per request to close as possible to med-rare. However, it just didn't have much taste. The bake beans billed as smokey seemed over flavored with bbq sauce of sorts. Pretzel roll was terrific.

LOGISTICS: The restaurant is deep inside the sprawling Beaver Creek complex. "Corner Tavern" is the neon sign. Drive past Dick's Sporting Goods, get to the traffic circle and head into that section. It's near a Mattress Store, a AT&T store and close to another tavern and the movie complex. Broken up into several sub sections it also has some outside seating areas to the right and left sides. The area at night can sustain some noise of bands; and the crowd seemed mostly young and happy to be there.

Prices are very reasonable: $8.50 Burger and one side of your choice. We didn't try anything else on the menu. Beer was cold. Will give this place another try. Looks like a great place to hang out or combine with a movie night.

“Maybe you will have better luck!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We went on a friday evening and they were busy. We waited 30 minutes for a table which we were fine with waiting cause it was busy. The hostess sat us at a table across from the bar and gave us menus. We waited for 15 minutes before we saw a waiter come out and check on other tables around us. He never made eye contact with us! So we waited 10 more minutes for some one to acknowledge us and no one never did so we walked out! This is a new business and if you want people to come back you need to take care of your customers. The guy who came out to check on the other tables all around us could have at least made eye contact and check on us and said someone will be right with you but he did'nt say nothing! Maybe you will have better luck with getting service we sure did'nt!

“The Corner has arrived!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I have always like The Corner in Cary, and I like the one now open in Apex. It used to be Le Mussels, which was dark and empty. They've opened the restaurant up and brightened it too. They have a great variety of food from Salads, Burgers, etc. and regular entrees. Good prices, good drink specials. The staff is wonderful, attentive and friendly. Will definitely become a regular here!
