I hadn't been through the area in ages, and was coming back from an estate sale when we saw the Tiger's Tale sign. It was busier than I expect for a Saturday afternoon, but once we saw the menu and started our meals (and drinks), we knew why there were so many people there. The craft beers, and even cider,...

This place is a marriage of Family Restaurant and Neighborhood Pub. I'll make two notes: There is a separate dining room and booth and table seating around the bar room. There's also a nice lunch and dinner menu. But I enjoy grabbing a bite at the Bar and was only interested in a Burger. Theirs is a stand out. You... More

I was taken here by a friend for a late lunch. She said she comes here often. Friendly staff. I got my plain cheese burger just the right way. The other two persons liked their meal too. Was quiet at 2 pm, but my friend says it can get very busy at dinner and weekends.

I had dinner here twice. Staff is friendly and attentive. Food is bar food along with specials on some nights. They serve everything. Has large bar, flat screens, wifi and dining room. Fun place to meet friends or take the family. Its not fancy or romantic. I had the ribs and fries and other people had burgers and chips. Lots... More

This is not a fancy place but offers a variety of cocktails and beers. The food is not too bad we were a large party and all seemed pleased with there sandwiches. I had a steak salad and it was plentiful, tender meat and plentiful. I was impressed I think it is just a matte of what you order here.... More

We came in looking for a nice dinner with our family. Walking in was interesting. Everyone seemed to be a regular at the bar as we walked in, and was a bit uncomfortable having to walk past the staring bar patrons to reach the hostess stand. My brother and I had the lobster slider, and we were pleasantly satisfied. My... More

Our group entered with high expectations on Saturday afternoon - vibrant bar, many people waiting for tables. The bar paid off, dinner not so much. 3 of 4 meals were misses - bland, ordinary pub food. Tasteless hamburgers, mushy fries. After agonizing over an overly large menu, plus another page just for that day we settled on basic stuff. I've... More

We brought our family here for a nice dinner. We were pleasantly surprised at the many types of food the restaurant offers. They also were child friendly. The food was tasty. We will return.

We had diner at this place, great seafood, oysters, clams and lobster were delicious. Although the parking lot was almost full we didn't need to wait for long before we were served. Service was excellent and quick. It is a typical American sports-bar, with big TV screens and a little bit noisy to European standards, but certainly a good place... More
