The fried asparagus was too chewy
to swallow. The lamb sandwich was dry and flavorless. The music was so loud we wouldn't carry on a conversation. And the waiter disappeared for long stretches. I love the build-out of this place and really want it to thrive, but I eat out for 10 meals a week and this was of my worst dining experiences in months."

Food was good. Service was slow
and somewhat disinterested. Excellent beer menu. Big screens visible from all points in the restaurants. Will go there again. Probably won't make special trip to do so."

We love the appetizers on the Menu
and often make our own tapas meal out of them! The Bacon jam is unique and the Deviled Eggs are great. They have a Great Selection of Beer on Tap and Several tasty Ciders."

I've been here a few times in the
past and I really enjoyed the place. However I went again this Monday and it will be hard to find a reason to go back. service was really lacking, food was not as good as it once was. This will most likely be a place for me to only experience happy hour for their beers from now on. "

I took my mother and father here
for Mother's Day brunch. The hostesses were very friendly, and gave my mother a flower upon entering the restaurant, which was nice. However, the food was mediocre, at best, and the service was ridiculously slow. Despite the fact that the place was almost empty, when ordering a drink at one point, our server said he "would get to it when he could." Our drink arrived about 15 minutes later, and it took about 30 minutes to receive our check after asking for it. (The place was still empty when we left, so it didn't seem like our server could be THAT busy.) We will not be returning."

It was quiet at lunch. It might be
noisier at dinner."

Absolutely loved the outdoor
seating area here - overlooking the street and shops/restaurants below. Food was tasty and timely served. (Imagine getting appetizers BEFORE entrees! It seems to be a unique situation for us lately!) Great beer selection!"

We stopped in on a beautiful
Sunday around noon and sat outside. There were other tables there for sure, but due to the openness of the space, it seemed a little empty. The tables on the patio are loungy outdoor furniture which was nice for kicking back and enjoying the day, but the cushions were dirty, stained and had cigarette burns that showed the stuffing inside. We were unimpressed with the food - the chicken biscuits were meager and average, the grilled cheese turned out to the a bacon and egg sandwich with a little melted cheese and the french toast was ok at best - I could have made much better at home. We generally enjoyed the space and the drinks and would go back if the food were better."

Music is way tooooooo loud to even
say hello, order food, etc. Many people have complained you can not even have a conversation."

Made the mistake of going for
dinner 7pm on Friday night. It was so loud & noisy, we left before ordering & getting excruciating headaches. Place was packed & service was beyond slow. We're too old for this scene."

Overall, the Park Tavern has very
good food and service, great weekly specials, and a fantastic beer selection."
Dined on 2/12/2014
Several food items were simply
awful. Mixed drinks we ordered as well. Overall would not recommend for dining."

The service was outstanding as was
our food and drinks! Nothing but good things to say about this place."

Three people at our table ordered
the lamb french dip and someone had to switch their order because they only had enough meat for 2 sandwiches. this was at 7:30 on a Friday. Then the people who ordered the french dip said it wasn't that good. I had the chicken taco's which were surprising good. We ordered hummus and it was pretty bad. I'd go again with the hopes my next visit is far superior."

Food was overcooked and
disappointing. Service was slow and not very attentive. I will not go back."

Had a wonderful Sunday brunch!
Food innovative & delicious! Manager & staff went above & beyond to ensure we had a great time!"

Restaurants America should simply
give up on Dallas. They've clearly lost the taste for this market."
Dined on 9/22/2013
Seems like a cool place but with
exception of our waitress it was not impressive. Hostess was pretty uninterested in us being there as was the bartender. After first sitting at the bar and basically being ignored we asked the hostess if we could move to the patio which was really much nicer anyway. Our waitress was very nice but the service was slow, the cocktails were watery and inconsistent. We shared animal tots which were ok and the foot-long grilled cheese which sounds way better than it actually is. Huge French roll, one sad little slice of bacon and not near enough cheese to be respectable. Poor timing on food and drinks. Disappointing for a place with such potential. Won't make trip from N Dallas to try it again."

Park Tavern is a great place to
have a craft beer, eat some creative bar food and meet with friends. They are also great if you are looking for a place that is open late and still serves food. Also, be on the lookout for their late night happy hour."
Dined on 9/13/2013
Like many others, Park Tavern did
not honor a table reservation made to watch the Texas Longhorn football game Saturday, August 31. They blamed Open Table, saying that the system did not recognize that the restaurant already had booked other tables. I think the place simply did not want to tell walk-ins no tables were available. Epic fail."

I loved the vibe in this place and
every one of the staff members I met were outstanding. However, it seems that the entire place is extremely disorganized. I went for a late afternoon business meeting and 45 minutes after sitting down we still hadn't had anyone even bring us waters. I had to go find a waiter and inform them of the situation. Immediately we were assigned a server, Brandon, who went above and beyond to rectify the issue and was extremely attentive. The entire experience was just bizarre... Perhaps it should be chalked up to a bad day? The ambiance was great and so were the food and drinks. So maybe it is worth another shot to see if the service improves."
Dined on 8/8/2013
Loved this place when it first
opened but was embarrassed to have suggested for a business dinner. One of the men in the group had to order three times before they had the dish."
Dined on 8/8/2013
Met friends there after work.
Should've been better. The place was full but they were seriously understaffed and our server, despite his best(?) efforts couldn't keep up. He didn't seem to know the menu, either. Appetizers didn't arrive. Drink orders were incorrect. Food was run in bits and pieces. Four seasonal beers advertised on the board but only one was in stock. So were several menu items. Could've been better. I've been before on a quieter evening and ate at the bar. No problems. Good chow and nice selection of beers.Would've been better if they had more wait staff. And if the staff they had was up to speed. It's hit or miss. Take a chance and if it's not going well - tab out and head to Gordon Biersch just around the corner."

Large group of people - good food
and decent service. Will return"
Dined on 7/12/2013
When Park Tavern opened the had a
great focus on Texas beers and Texas seasonal beers. My last two visits have been a huge disappointment and may indicate a change in attention for PT. Only one Texas seasonal and no daily Texas beer specials. Top that off with a wait staff that knows nothing about beer (I am embarrassed to say it seems to be the female portion that is clueless) and Park Tavern is no longer a neighborhood gem and not the great Texas supporting, eclectic pub it was on opening. I will return, but not as often."
Dined on 6/19/2013
I chose Park Tavern as a central
spot that's open late. I connected with friends I hadn't seen in 20 years which meant a lot of laughing and a long stay. We never felt rushed and our server, Jacob, was so helpful and gracious. The outdoor seating was comfortable. We'd certainly go again."
Dined on 5/26/2013
Had around 15 friends there for
happy hour. The reservation was easily made the day prior. Had no problems with seating (even though half of my party was late), great service and a great time! Food and drink specials were pretty unbeatable for the area. would definitely return again."
Dined on 5/3/2013
This was our third trip to Park
Tavern and we enjoy the twists they have for ordinary foods such as the chorizo on the deviled eggs. One of their most popular appetizers and very delicious. We also love the Mexibano sandwich, the fish special as well as the pork carnitas. We tried the shrimp and grits, but the sauce was too salty and we sent it back. The service was very good despite a couple of miscommunications and the problem with the shrimp and grits. I would still come back, because each problem was handled very quickly and cheerfully."
Dined on 4/18/2013
Food was only okay, would not
return. Wait staff did not know ingredients when asked because those were not the ingredients that were in the dish I received. Her comment on every dish was, this is my favorite"
Dined on 4/13/2013
When we arrived and said we had
made a reservation on Open Table, the hostess smirked and said, "we have no tables available right now...you'll receive a text when a table opens up." When we were provided a table, our server was flippant and not friendly or helpful. The food was mediocre and somewhat overpriced for the venue."
Dined on 3/9/2013
We had the two handed sandwiches
since they were half priced on Wednesdays. I had the Mexibano and it was excellent pulled pork with good flavors. There was a tiny hint of spice which just added more flavor to it. We also had the hummus as an appetizer which was excellent, as well."
Dined on 3/6/2013
Crowded and loud, but a fun place.
Wednesdays are 1/2 off on their sandwiches, which is a great deal. We mostly like the appetizers the best including the jar of bacon jam. Service was pretty good this time. Has been a little slow in the past."
Dined on 3/6/2013
We enjoyed the food and drinks
very much and would definitely recommend the restaurant to others. The only issue was that the dessert (with the exception of the butter cake) was much less pleasing than our meals."
Dined on 2/23/2013
I think Park Tavern is a nice
place. I like the location, ease of parking. This was my 4th visit, I believe. I've come to think of it as a reliable place to have a lunch and find something to please even a group of diverse tastes. There are some very tasty dishes. They may be made extra tasty by a bit too much salt in some, but they can be satisfying - and good to share. The macaroni and cheese is very good. There is a good chicken available - beer can style I believe. I wish there were a few more appealing looking dishes that were more on the light side. It's an alright place with a pleasant staff and atmosphere."
Dined on 2/17/2013
Interesting menu choices. It's
really a bar with some very good food choices, so very loud. Good specials."
Dined on 1/9/2013
We were excited to try the food at
this restaurant, but were disappointed. The tots in the animal tots were bland. Go to Tillman's Roadhouse if you want good tots. The bacon donuts tasted too sweet and the presentation looked like a plate of sludge. The server was nice, but didn't know the menu very well and didn't seem enthusiastic about the food on the menu when we asked for suggestions. The sandwiches were good. This restaurant had their silverware station in the open so we could hear the loud clinking of the silverware being dried and put away by a very bored waitress the entire time we were dining. It's a good mall destination, but not classy enough for a special occasion and too loud for a date night."
Dined on 12/27/2012
Different/better food than generic
restaurant/bar food, nice selection of microbrews, restaurant exchanged a bitter tasting microbrew for a different beer without any question, all in all a very pleasant experience."
Dined on 12/26/2012
We had a wonderful experience. The
beer can chicken was excellent. The fries were very good. The deviled eggs were good. The manager was very kind and gave us a free desert. The butter cake was excellent. Only complaint was it was the noise level. Too loud."
Dined on 12/21/2012
Our first experience at Park
Tavern wasn't very good. Our server was rude & just not very personable in general; serving is probably not the profession for her. I ordered a medium well filet that came out medium rare. The server didn't ask how it was done so after several minutes we finally waved her down to get it changed. Instead of making me a new steak they just threw it back on the grill so the same steak came out severely seared. Considering our bill was $60 for this type of food & service I doubt we'll be trying it again."
