“Good burgers”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This place is where you go when you don't want to get dressed up and want a good burger. Current sports games are playing on various TVs. If you want to go for a quiet meal, this is not the place. Good beer selection.

“bit of a rush”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

a friend and i recently went to the york tavern for lunch. the food was ok, but we felt "rushed." our waitress seemed to be in a big hurry, although i don't know why. they were a little crowded at first, but the place seemed to clear out pretty fast, so i don't know why she seemed to be in such a "tizzy." in fact, my friend even said, "i think they want us out of here!" my reply was, "why? right now they're not busy and they're open for several more hours! we've only been here for a little while!" i did overhear a customer ask for a particular type of liquor and when she got it, she said she thought that they gave her the wrong drink because it didn't taste like what she had ordered. the waitress was very insistent that it was what she ordered, so she just said ok and accepted it. whether it was the "real" thing i don't know. i just feel that, somehow, they could have been a little more accomodating. it appeared that they were a little "short" with the woman. i'm not sure what they could have done,other than being more polite, but i could tell that the woman was dissatisfied. all in all though, i would go back just because it does have a quaint old tavern type atmosphere. it's also in a great location because it's located next to the graue mill so you can take a trail when you're done eating. i think that the servers could slow down a bit and not make it seem like you're one of many in an "assembly line" of customers!

“Service is greedy, perhaps?!?”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

The food at the York Tavern is always fairly good. Portions could be a tad bigger for the cost, and when you order a full meal, kinda disappointing that bread is not included. When you ask for bread, they do serve it = and charge you for it, too. When myself and a couple of business associates stopped in for lunch on a Friday, we found ourselves a nice table that seats four. When the wait staff approached us, we were asked if there were going to be 4 of us sitting and eating? We said no = 3 of us. The employee next gathered our menus and said it was too busy, and we could not occupy a table for four at this time. Without a smile or any assistance at all, we found ourselves spaces at the bar on the stools. The bartender took our order, 0 comp on our COKE, no smile. That was all = move out of the way. We're busy and unless you are a complete table.....what? don't come in?!? Do not worry = we won't.
