The Grille is in a historic building originally built in 1923 as the Rialto Theater. It was the longest running single-screen theater in the United States until December 1998, when it was lost to fire. Reopened in December of 2005 as The Tavern Grille, guests will see the charred concrete walls that frame the dining room today. The building next door, built in 1925 as a grocery store, was converted into the upscale Tavern Hotel in 2011 and guests enjoy welcome cocktails at the Tavern Grille Bar. Upstairs from the Grille is a luxury penthouse that is part of the Tavern Hotel experience.

Stopped in for a late dinner. Beautiful space. Warm reception. Mojito was perfect. Excellent burger … big but easy to eat w soft bun. Waitress offered half regular and half sweet potato fries. Both were excellent. Got Oreo creme brûlée to go…. So ugly yet...so amazing. The best dessert of the trip. All in all a fantastic placeMore

If you want some really good fish and chips, this is the place. It's located so close to the shops in Old Town area. Walking distance. The service was excellent and the prices were very reasonable.

Stop #3 of our Haunted Group adventure. We did not have anything to eat but had wonderful nightcaps at the bar. Service was fast and friendly. Saw food being served and it looked yummy. Will definitely try them in our next visit.

We had a great meal. Love, love LOVED the shrimp ceviche. Great atmosphere and service. The only "complaint" I would have is the background noise. But it IS a pub so that is kind of expected. Also, it is probably not a secret how great...everything is so it was crowed ;) Will definitely be back whenever in the areaMore

We had a wonderful meal here while visiting Cottonwood. I had the fish tacos and they were the best fish tacos I have ever had. The atmosphere was great and the building was quite interesting. I will definitely visit again.

We stayed at the Tavern Hotel, right next door. It's a fine grill offering good food and an extensive bar.

Stopped in for lunch and sat at the bar. Food was good and portions big ( had to get boxes to bring some home). Special requests/substitutes were not a problem. Service was very good, and we were very impressed and appreciative that the manager stopped...by to check on how our food/dining experience was.More

on a hot Arizona day stopping at the Grill you can get a cool refreshing beer or a mule or anything else to cool you off. If it is to hot for a burger tri the Ahi tuna salad.
