Made reservations and was quickly seated upon arrival. Our server was delightful and added to our evening. Our dinner choices were mostly from the special menu and all four of us loved our dinners. One additional menu choice was a salad which was also well received. My B-Day was further celebrated when our server brought a dessert with candles.

Do not eat here! My son and I stopped in for a quick pre-dinner snack at 4:15 on Christmas eve. We moved here last year, and had not tried this place yet. My son had the buffalo shrimp and a beer, and I ordered the lobster bisque. The buffalo shrimp was good, albeit 5 shrimp. My soup wasn't very hot,... More

Stopped here mostly because of the name and the word tavern. Was very disappointed to find there was only a small choice available. So we decided to order a couple of appetizers. The food was good and was priced fairly. The orange cake was delicious. But really it was nothing special. No manager came by to check on our service... More

Odd they're only open for dinner. Good luck, with that. Also, odd, the rather sparse selection of draft beer offerings, for a self-proclaimed "tavern". We ordered the prime rib stone bits and chicken quesadillas, and split them, both. The food was pretty tasty, but overpriced, IMO. Service was just okay. Decent overall experience, but make sure you know what you're... More

We are moving just down the street from this restaurant. That could be very dangerous to our pocketbooks because the food is outstanding!

Visited this location Friday night. I have nothing but great things to say. Our waiter Chris was great. Very attentive!! My husband and I ordered the blue cheese chips-highly recommend. We both had salads for dinner which were very tasty and filling. This was our first time and we will be back!

Dined here with friends recently. I had CEDAR PLANK ROASTED SALMON which I think was the best choice. Two in our party had a fish special which I think was mahi mahi; both reported their meals to be overdone. The dining experience was a bit protracted though the rolls and especially the warm pretzel rolls were tasty to tide us... More
