I really enjoyed the burger on their outdoor deck. Their Pretzels and Beer Cheese was Fabulous. Service was great and it was fast. Would visit again.

My husband and I decided at the eleventh hour to try this place after hiking and hammocking in nearby John Bryan State Park. Excellent food and service with a German flair! Can't wait to go again!

We've lived in YS a long time and have been to the Tavern many times. The inside looks much better and lots cleaner, and it's nice to look at the new siding from the patio rather than peeling paint. But, the new pseudo German menu...More

We had lunch here yesterday. Great patio, great service. My reason for 4 stars was the lack of healthy options on the menu. I was able to get a burger on a bed of lettuce. But all the side options were unhealthy. Just my personal...More
