On a recent trip to Coronado we had the pleasure of eating at the Tavern. It was late on a Sunday night and we wanted a bite to eat and some drinks and there were not a ton of choices at the late hour. We had noticed The Tavern earlier in the day becasue of the interesting signage. We are so glad that we wandered back by. The atmosphere and decor at the Tavern are wonderful. There is a small outdoor seating area on the street level and you then go down about 10 steps to enter the main restaurant. Sitting on the steps leading down were bell jars with candles inside, this is a restaurant that pays attention to the little details. We were sat by a gentlemen named John who turned out to be the owner. We had a great conversation about the building history,decor, food choices and beer. The restaurant serves "comfort food" and while that is not normally what I am looking for when near the beach it was so delicious I forgot where I was. Since it was late we decided to order a few things to share and we choose the corn chowder, mac n cheese and chicken pot pie. All of them were wonderful. The mac n cheese and pot pie were served in cast iron crocks and we fought over the last bites. Our server Austin was very friendly and attentive - granted it was late but there were other tables eating and several people came in for drinks during our visit. We enjoyed our time at The Tavern so much we came back for drinks the next night to watch a baseball game. My only regret about The Tavern is that we live 3,000 miles away - we'd love for it to be our local bar here in Delaware. Can't wait for a return to Coronado, The Tavern will be one of our first stops!
