We always have a good meal at Tiger's Tale. The food is hearty and the service dependable. My husband's burger was perfect, just like he requested, and my chicken sandwich was tasty and served on crusty bread.

Nice place, good food, good food & drink selections, good parking. Small outdoor seating in addition to a large seating area inside. I wish they were closer to where I live.

This restaurant is a bar type atmosphere. They make their burgers on the grill, but the burgers only come w/chips. I usually get the grilled brook trout which come with a 🥔 baked potato, French 🍟fries, or vegetables. They used to give a dinner salad...More

yes they will take a reservation if the party is 6 or more. Saturday night is usually busy so plan accordingly.They do serve the full menu at the bar if it is only 2 of you. Service is fantastic at the bar.
