If you like crispy wings, this is the place. Other food is good but the wings are great! Service is good.

Wasn't that hungry, but stopped here for the happy hour specials. The salad bar is very small with few options, however, it was clean. I ordered the chili to go with it and that was a mistake. Just don't order it...I won't go into detail,...More

I like the Tavern, the beer is cold with a good selection, no cigarette smoke, good fat wings, friendly staff, TVs everywhere. What is there not to like?

After reading glowing reviews we were expecting better. The fried pickles were WAY too salty. Both my husband and I ordered the grilled shrimp- which was over-seasoned and probably made from small, frozen shrimp. On a better note, the ribs in Carolina BBQ sauce (my...More

A typical sports bar and grill with lots of tvs, even miniature ones in the booths. The big difference is their food and family atmosphere. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich. He had to use his fork at first because there was so much...More

Just tried Carolina Tavern for the first time. We went for wings because that's supposed to be their specialty. Wings were just ok. Not cooked long enough, so meat really stuck to the bone and the skin was slimy. Sauce tasted straight out of the...More

From all of the good reviews, we were checking this out to watch the Daytona 500 as we will just be coming into town that morning.. Just curious to know how big is the restaurant? If there would be any problem getting a table and if there are any dollar amount limits per hour needed to be ordered?

It's an average sized restaurant, shouldn't be a problem getting a table.
I used to see your specials online and now I don't, do you still have your daily specials, one day it was 2 steak dinners for 1 price or 2 steak and rib or rib and chicken for 1 price, every day was different.
