    We dined at the Tavern on a Sunday evening. There was a moderate crowd. we ordered an appetizer as soon as we sat down and it took 20-25 minutes. The entrees took about 45 minutes after we ordered them. The food was good but not exceptional. Typical bar food. I have been to this restaurant before and the food and service were better then. I will think twice about dining here again.

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    I thought I had done well to make reservations for Easter and decided to step out of the 'Big Box'. Wanting a full meal, with service, I made reservations for 2:00 PM. We get there and they are still having brunch, even though there was no mention anywhere that the buffet was until 2:30 PM. AND to top that off, they jacked up the price to $32.00 per person for dried up toast and over heated eggs. We did not stay, and will not go back!!

    This place is nothing special. I would not go out of my way again to go there. Just another run of the mill and slightly overpriced watering hole. The area is too small and confined to try and have it both ways. A sports Bar and Casual gathering. Too noisy and some loud and due to a couple of obnoxius groups watching sports while couples and family's were stopping in after shopping in Old Littleton.

  • Not steller
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/26/2013
    We had reservations for 6 around lunch time on Saturday (3 adults and 3 kids). We sat down and the waitress took our drink order. It was apparent that she was fairly busy and had a number of tables. This location is not that large and the tables are packed close together. We had to get her attention to order our food (tough with hungry kids). 5 minutes later she returned. It took 30 minutes to get an order of sliders, enchilades, chicken tenders, stuffed pretzels and a blt. The runner just dropped off the food and walked away. We had no silverware, no extra plates and no ketchup. The food was cold. So needless to say the manager did step up and take 50% off our bill but I would have preferred faster, warmer food.

    Took a colleague to lunch as a thank you for a lot of hard work. This place was great! Extensive menu, food looked great, tasted great, cooked to order, wait staff was in trainging, but did excellent. We needed a place to meet and discuss some work issues and the Tavern worked exceedingly well for that. Thanks for a super experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 7/18/2013
    Tavern provided exactly what I'd hoped for, a good family friendly menu, large tables, easy reservations. There were way more TVs that I expected, definitely a sports bar feel. A little loud, but not so much that I had to shout to people sitting next to me. Across the table it was hard to hear. Predictable menu, good value. Colorado Cobb salad was big enough for 2 meals, pizza was good but came out with wrong toppings, kids meals generic Kraft mac/cheese, grilled cheese, etc. You can choose fruit or steamed veg as kids' sides which is nice.

    The service was good but the "afternoon crew" had a meeting right by the booth we were sat at and the lack of professionalism displayed in the meeting was awful. The manager that was holding the meeting spoke loudly so the whole staff could hear so we heard every word, and the use of vulgar language on two occasions was not something I bargained for going at 4 pm for a quick dinner. It essentially ruined our meal.

    I met a girlfriend at Tavern - Littleton and since I was early (by 20 minutes) I engaged the hostess in conversation and she was most pleasant and helpful. The food was good and the ambience was O.K., but mostly we liked it because no one bothered us even though we took up a booth for more than 2 1/2 hours! (We tipped the waitress well!).

    Chose the Tavern for a lunch meeting. Sat upstairs where there is a somewhat obstructed view of the front range. Alexis, our server, was the perfect combination of attentive and unobtrusive. I would request her if possible. We had the nachos for appetizer. Just the right size for two to share, and came with Guac and sour cream. The jalapenos were very hot which is perfect for my taste. I had a bowl of the Bison Chili. It had a good taste, and just the right amount of onions incorporated. Since my mate picked up the check, I can't rate the prices.

    Both young ad old gathered at the Tavern for food, comaraderie, and for cheering on the basketball games. The atmosphere was lively and happy. There is dining on the roof patio and on the sidewalk. Still a bit chilly, so we ate inside. Our server was attentive and our food burgers were great. I would like to try some of the other dishes, now.

    I know it's a sports bar, but I expected a more comprehensive menu for dinner time. Noise level was high - no surprise. People in my party rated the chicken pot pies very good and the hamburger good. The fish in my fish & chips was soggy and the portion was small. Lunches I've had at this Tavern have been very good, particularly their salads. With a little work on the dinner menu this could be a place I'd recommend for a casual evening meal.

    I tend to frequent The Tavern Littleton on Tuesday Trivia nights, but also go there when I can't catch my sports teams on the TV. It can get a little loud in there, but the staff is very friendly and service is quick. There is a decent selection of draft beers, and the menu is excellent for what is, in essence, a bar. The Tavern is easily accessible due to it's proximity to both the Littleton terminal of Lite-Rail, as well as easy to get to from Santa Fe.

    Stopped here after flying into Denver late evening. Chose the location because it was near my hotel and the menu I viewed online said the kitchen closed at midnight. When I arrived at 10:15 our server said that only appetizers were served after 10 pm. Although this was a little disappointing, the appetizer selection was good, the portions were huge, the food was excellent, and all appetizers were half price after 10. A great find. I will return next time I'm in town.
