Great choices to try southern cooking. Mac & Cheese with Pulled Pork may have been the best dish of everything we tried. There are some healthy choices as well. Very impressive beer list. Great place for family dining.

I ate here twice during a visit to Durham. The beer list is fantastic. The food is basically your average pub fare. Anytime in the area I would happily go here again for lunch to catch a pint and some reasonably good comfort food. That they do very well.

Their food is really delicious. I love the garlic fries with real minced garlic. Salads are delicious! Grilled chicken sandwich is always a hit. Lots of other deliciousness on the menu and it's all located at the American tobacco campus. When you finish eating you can take a nice stroll around the "park".

I love this restaurant and have eaten here many times. The burgers are very good, but my favorite are the garlic fries. They have lots of beer and cider options and the pimento cheese is delicious.

Cool location, and primo spot in Tobacco district. The inside is fun, with a spacious front room, cozy back room with pool tables, etc., and an outside seating area in the front and on the side. The beer selection was quite good, and made picking a beer pretty easy for someone who isn't the biggest beer fan. Other than that... More

We eat here fairly frequently before shows at the Durham Performing Arts Center. It is conveniently located, is very dependable, and easy to get in and out when pushed for time. Good varied menu and a good selection of craft beers. Service is always very good

We enjoy having dinner at Tylers Taproom prior to Durham Performing Art Center (DPAC) shows. The meals are reasonably priced plus many different types of craft beer and wine. Appetizers and desert round out a very enjoyable time.

Tyler's Tavern is a staple for lunch or dinner, especially if you're going to see the Durham Bulls play ball. It is walking distance to the ballpark. The food is great and very consistent. I recommend the pulled park, burgers, homemade potato chips, and speciality mac and cheese options.
