We recently wanted to spend a half day riding bikes on the Capitol Area Greenway, and thought it would be nice to find a place to stop at midday for lunch. While there are a number of restaurants in Crabtree Valley, we didn't want to go into the mall. But I remembered this place is out behind the mall, so we tried them. It was a very good place to stop for lunch off the greenway. A much better option for us than the mall, or McDonalds.
We all thought the food was very good. It was also reasonably priced. But remember, this is primarilly a bar, and it can be noisy. The atmosphere is,,, a bar. There is nothing particularly nice about the inside of this restaurant/bar, but it did fit our needs and we liked the food.
Our primary complaint with the tavern was that we wanted to use 2 for 1 coupons from the Entertainment Guide for each of the 2 couples at our table. The coupon said it was good for "one coupon per person, per visit", but the restaurant interpreted that as one per table. The waitress told us when we showed the coupons that the manager would not honor "per person". I guess the food is not too expensive, so that is not a big deal, but it seemed like a "bait and switch" to us that people should know about. Sounded like the manager was an inflexible tyrant, and that makes us wonder if we want to go back, even if we dont have a coupon to use.
But overall the tavern was a good stop off the greenway. I would recommend this if you want to spend a fun day biking and doing lunch out along the trail.
