“Unique Restaurant in a Beautiful College Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We had lunch yesterday at the Tavern Restaurant in downtown Northfield MN. This out of the way establishment is in the basement of the Historic Archer House Hotel on the beautiful Canon River. You can choose to eat inside or out on the terrace (depending on the weather) and both are very popular. The daily specials are unique and portions are very adequate. The place is usually busy with much local clientele but the servers are friendly and accommodating.
After your meal you should stroll through this beautiful town. One block away is the First National Bank (now a fine museum) where the erstwhile citizens of this community sent the Jesse James gang to it's final defeat almost a century and a half ago.

“Eat Before a Stroll on the River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We enjoyed our recent meal at the Tavern. It's historical significance steals the show. Our food was good. Not fancy. But a great place to gather with friends on a trip to Minnesota.

“Unique Antique Decor, Wide Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

The service was great, and the decor very unique. Housed in the basement of an inn, in what used to be the hotel kitchens, the low ceilings and exposed brick lend a cozy feel. The large menu included sandwiches, italian, and mexican food. The garden burger was average, but the house potatoes stole the show. This is a nice place to visit with a group of friends or family. There is something on the menu for everyone.

“Lasagna heaven”

If you can find it you have to eat here. Great for adults and children. Eat outside for the true experience. Feels like you're in
