Review of Royal Oak Tavern - CLOSED

Royal Oak Tavern
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 29, 2012

The meal we had here was fine,generous (read: way too big!) portions and tasty. The staff was friendly, although the service was a bit slow, but they were busy. The restaurant needs a bit of updating, it looks tired.
My main complaint about the Royal Oak was the very noisy man who talked, loudly and incessantly throughout our meal. I knew we were in trouble shortly after we were seated, and considered having the waitperson move us, but he was so loud and obnoxious that he dominated the whole seating area. I wished that the staff had told him to keep it down, as it obviously disturbed all the other patrons.

The hotel had recommended this restaurant. Our food was only average as well as the service. In their defense, they had an extremely large group at one table. Probably 16 to 20 people. So the food and service might have been much better without this large a group descending on them at one time.

As a local I find that your best bet for the Royal Oak is lunch. They have great soups, salads and sandwiches at a fabulously low price. Have tried dinner several times and not been as thrilled with the meal.

Stopped here for dinner after spending the day on Skyline Dr. Thought the food was good and thought the ribs were excellent. Ambiance of the place leaves a little to be desired, but if you want good food at a reasonable price definitely give it a try.

The ribs were "to die for"! We also had the smothered chicken which was a new dish to the menu. Service was great. Overall, a wonderful place to eat.
