Description: Town Tavern is a cool, contemporary American classic In 2007, a modern take on a traditional 1930s tavern opened its doors and made its mark on the busy streets of downtown Royal Oak. Town Tavern is a dining destination bursting with personality and serving up American comfort food with flair. When renowned designer Ron Rea was tasked with creating a contemporary version of an old-time neighborhood tavern, he infused the space with an extra-long bar, dark mahogany and rich red bar stools. Walls of the restaurant are filled with old photographs of Royal Oak, while walls of the bar are stocked to the ceiling with what's needed to create your favorite cocktail. Don't let the traditional tavern vibe fool you. Our menu is anything but typical. You'll find the finest bar plates, with a creative twist. The cheeseburgers top many best-of lists. Guests come from far and wide for our award-winning Venison Chili. And our Lobster Mac and Cheese is comfort food with upscale appeal. Of course, every dish deserves a beverage to match it. Choose yours from our extensive wine, beer and cocktail list. Town Tavern is that comfortable dining and drinking establishment that lends itself to leisurely meals and long conversations. Spend time here and you'll quickly understand why we're the talk of the town.

Today we had the lobster nachos and the salmon special which was Wild Caught (at least they said that). Both were very good and we would go back.

We dine there at least 3 times a month. We love the food, the atmosphere and the service. It has an active, fun but not overwhelming vibe. Specials are always good and the regular fare is consistent. Good for dining alone, with couples and even the kids.

Stopped in for dinner on a trip to MI. I had the tomato soup which was seriously awesome with bread sticks, likewise. For my main I had the chicken mac (and cheese). I have to say it is the best mac and cheese I've ever eaten. Tons of flavor. Nice and light traffic texture. And bacon.

Definitely a nice upscale tavern.

I would eat here again.

We stopped in for lunch. Our friends recommended and took us here. It was a late Saturday lunch around 2 and they were using a brunch menu.

We sat on the patio and had excellent service. Interesting menu with sort of a South of the border theme. They had huevos rancheros, Southwest omelets and Benedict’s, pulled pork enchiladas, tacos, etc. along with burgers, salads and regular breakfast items. Plus whatever adult beverages you might want. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the enchiladas I was hoping for something a little unique but it was not. Tasty though. I would come back to try other items for sure.

Yes, the mac and cheese is great, but everything on the menu is good. Make sure you ask for their craft cocktail menu, they got some real good drinks there.
