The menu here is a little different then most places. You purchase everything separate but prices very good.

Not much atmosphere but, if you want the best fish in town this is the place. Be prepared to wait a bit on Fridays as patrons flock in for a great fish meal. Dinning area is modest in size and you seat yourself so, if you choose, you may share a table with others.

The food was not as bad as the service. This is a neighborhood bar with cheap tables and chairs that need to be replaced. Prices were cheap and the quality not very good. If we lived nearby we wouldn't go here.

If you are looking for a good fish sandwhich, The Tavern is the place to go. The menu is printed on your placemat and the prices are very reasonable. A nice size fish sandwhich is $3.25; you can order it broiled or deep fried. The cole slaw is excellent; my husband likes the chowder also. It is a family run... More

A bar with food. This is what I wanted. 8 ft. pool table. Want a fancy restaurant, go somewhere else.

Right down the road from Clarion University, my college friends and I used to frequent The Tavern. It's a great place to go if you just want to spend some time with friends. Prices aren't bad, either, and it's not usually so crowded that you can't get service.

I grew up here, so whenever I come back--for however short a trip it may be--I always stop at The Tavern. Great menu, anything you could imagine on menu with great prices. I highly recommend the fish--that's my favorite, with any of their sides--especially the macaroni and cheese.
