This place is absolutely amazing. From the wings, to the entrees. All over excellent food! The service was a 10 too. I didn't catch our waiters name, but he was so kind. He was running the dining room as well as the bar and he never forgot about us once! Will recommend .

We stopped in for lunch recently and enjoyed delicious sandwiches and burgers. The Salmon BLT was a wonderful blend of flavors with just enough "heat" in the aioli. The French Dip sandwich which is something I generally find to be "adequate" in most restaurants was amazing at Tavern! The beef was so tender it literally melted in your mouth and... More

Fabulous Shepard's pie , great soups and splendid salads good place for a quiet lunch or a business meeting. Gets louder and more frenetic at happy hour and at the bar. Good times though. Solid choices on the menu good staff with knowledgeable guidance on food options Good place!!!

The place looks so upscale from the outside and I think I was expecting a... More

I have never been here for lunch and not sure why, they have a great selection of lunch specials for $9.95 that include an entree and soup/salad, their full menu is still available as well, I had the 8oz burger with Cheese ( extra charge) and the corn tortilla soup, both were excellent and the burger was cooked to perfection,...

I really enjoyed my late lunch here over the weekend. They were fairly busy (but we came after the brunch rush) and were seated almost immediately. The menu has a little bit of everything, so no matter who you come with, they are bound to find something delicious. I shared a few things with my group (the Hummous Board, The... More

Great place for drinks, lunch, or dinner. French onion soup is phenomenal, and their taco night is awesome. I don't eat seafood but the lobster roll and lobster corn chowder soup are unreal according to the wife. Highly recommend.
