We had dinner here twice in a weekend stay. The Tavern has a very comfortable feel to it. The staff are really great in making you feel at home. The menu is comfort food. They serve great soups and salads. Their burgers are juicy and the steaks were cooked perfectly. They also have a good drinks menu as well.

Received a strong recommendation to try out this Tavern while in Woodstock... We took a gander at the menu & it looked delicious! From the beginning it didn't start well, as we approached the entrance, the hostess suddenly went MIA. We stood there for a good five minutes with several employees passing, not one saying "someone will be right with you" or "just a moment while I find the hostess for you." Five star hotel & the service stinks already? She finally arrives & tells us there's a 45 minute wait & we request to sit at the bar for our dinner instead. We approach, my sister sits as I wait for my area to be cleaned of a drink & tab from the previous customer... I wait & I wait & wait some more... Finally the bartender comes over after several minutes & assumed we were just waiting for a table, even if we were wouldn't you inquire on whether or not we wanted a drink? We order a drink, ask to look at the menu, choose our meals & then we wait, wait, & continue waiting... He never came back to see if we wanted to order a meal or needed another cocktail, I had to flag him down to get our bill. DONE! TRAIN YOUR EMPLOYEES TO KNOW WHAT CUSTOMER SERVICE SHOULD BE AT A SUPPOSED FIVE STAR RESORT!!! Ugh, horribly disappointed!!!

Good food, good service, after a 45 minute wait. The fish tacos were excellent, the local beer good (according to one of the party) and the house wine was acceptable. Noise level was low despite their being a sizable crowd.

I kept reading the menu looking for the Armenian selections and finally decided whoever wrote the cuisine type did not eat there. Nice ambience and service staff. A cozy escape with typical American bar food.

Nice place to linger over a meal, but the food was average and the menu limited; which is OK for a pub menu, but there could've been more of a variety. The wait staff was good, the hostess very accommodating. It was odd to see the food being run across the public hall, and past the gift shop into the tavern to be served.
