The Tavern is a chef-driven restaurant committed to serving great food in a stylish, yet relaxed atmosphere. Here at The Tavern, we serve contemporary American cuisine with a Southwestern flair and are committed to featuring organic produce, naturally raised meats, and sustainable seafood whenever possible. We take the time to hand-pick fresh vegetables, hand-cut steaks to order, and bake our own breads daily which sets us apart from others for miles and miles. Our menu provides a different and incomparable variety of entrees from fire-roasted artichokes and ground-in-house burgers served with hand-cut shoe string fries, to 11 oz. center cut angus filet mignion.

Diner Reviews
  • "We have a Happy Hour group of 8 that try different spots on Friday nights. We have been to the Tavern several times. It is always a joy if we can get into the bar area. They offer Happy Hour specials in the bar area only so it's kind of a challenge. This week it worked perfectly! We will for sure return."

  • "This is our favorite go-to fresh dinner resturant. They don't have a freezer, so freshness is a must. They have gluten free fish tacos that are wonderful! I can even turn it paleo by substituting the rice/beans for roasted acorn squash. If anyone asks us where to go for a casual atmosphere, not fast food, good wine/beer...we always say The Tavern!"

  • "My teen daughter is now a "pescatarian" so we are always looking for restaurants that offer fish and seafood options. I'm a carnivore and my wife is a salad person. The Tavern menu is not overwhelminly big but it brings very interesting dishes: from the skillet cornbread appetizer to the tuna burger or the slow cooked beef rib, everything was fresh, nicely prepared and delicious. This restaurant is already in our favs list! And we will come back again."

  • "This place has not disappointed yet and I we have been there 3 times in the last few months. My favorite dish is the Texas Pork Ribs, but really you can't go wrong with any of the items."

  • "Another trip to The Tavern with friends exemplified the consistency of this restaurants great food and service. Motivated by the need for Lenten fish, our wives had fish tacos that were prepared perfectly. My best friend and I opted for the Mexico City Enchilada. While not a Mexican restaurant, we agreed that our entree was as good or better than those served at some of Fort Worth's better known Tex Mex establishments. The Tavern gets the chicken enchilada right with some flare! The wine selection is adequate to please most patrons and the beer selection is accented with variety. I had a new tap selection - Vanilla Porter, which was outstanding. Before selection, our attentive waitress provided me a sample. Dining doesn't get much better."

  • "It was recommend to us which I was skeptical about since it's not in a vibrant location surrounded by other good restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised. The good was delicious, my husband got the pork ribs --fell off the bone easily, great flavor, and a nice side of thin crunchy fries. I got the brisket tacos and they were the most flavorful tacos I've had in a while - marinated meat, great rice and beans and a delicious sauce that gave it a kick. We also got the keylime pie and it was pretty good as well -- just too big (and thus pricey). The server was nice, we didn't feel rushed but we sat by the bar and it was so crowded I was someone else's bottom almost in my face. I decided to not let it bother me and rather see it as comical."

  • "My husband and I really enjoy the brunch. This time I tried the soup of the day: artichoke and mushroom. This sounds crazy but let me tell you it was awesome! Try it if they have it!!!"

  • "The food was outstanding. The atmosphere was more like a sports bar. The service was so-so... The waiter/waitresses did seem too engaged. My wife and I love that the vegetables and foods are organic."

  • "The experience was positively delightful! My fish tacos were heaven sent!"

  • "While the service was great, the food was not worth the money, and you practically had to yell across the table to talk with the people you are eating with."

  • "Late planning on my part left me with The Tavern as an unknown choice on Valentines Day. I took a chance and found this to be exactly what I was looking for. It had just enough atmosphere to keep my second date with this lady from being too romantic while still having a cozy feel. Food was excellent and wait staff could not have been better. They are well trained and have a team attitude without leaving you wondering who your waiter is."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Read good things about the food and was not disappointed. Valentine's dinner with my wife was great! Looks like sports bar from outside, but inside very cozy and upscale. Steak was perfectly cooked. Really nice adult night out. Highly recommend."

Knowledgeable wait staff food and appetizers were delivered with excellent timing! Diverse crowd of both young and senior. Thanks and you have earned a regular patron"

  • "Service was fair at best. Starting with the front desk at the door. Bartenders seemed very new at bar tending. The waiter had no clue about the menu or the nightly specials. The food came out at different times for our table of 4. My overall impression with this restaurant is the is a severe lack of training. Maybe it's just growing pains...... Food was ok but nothing to write home about."

  • "I went to The Tavern two nights in a row. Fun place. The food was very good and and you can't beat the happy hour prices."

  • "Although I made the reservations on line about 6:40 for 7:00 dining, they told me they had a line when I reserved and I would have to wait 10-15 minutes. That would have been fine, but there were three tables available when we got there and we were finally seated 10 minutes later in one of those tables. Inexcusable as far as I am concerned. If they had been all full, I could understand."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "This is an occasional gathering spot for a group of friends. We enjoy the drinks, food, service, and noise level (which is low enough that we can hear each other without yelling, yet is suitably "active"). The food and drinks are reasonalby priced and tasty, and the service is attentive, without being naggy."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "My husband and I really enjoyed the brunch. The Benedict was to die for and the mimosas and bloody Mary's were great"
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "The food is expensive, the noise level is such that you have to scream across the table to speak with your friends. The ambiance is NOT conducive for an enjoyable meal."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "This little bistro in a strip shopping center doesn't look like anything special on the outside. As a matter of fact the building used to house a hamburger place. Now? Wow what a difference. My wife got the enchilada and tenderloin which was great. Enchilada was really stuffed with moist chicken and her steak I cut with a fork. I got the double cut pork chop. It had to be 3 inches thick. It was incredible . The only reason the food didn't get 4 stars is because the key lime pie I got for dessert was barely so so. Overall I'd eat here as much as I can."

  • "Great food!!! The food was hot, delicious, and arranged on the plate very decorative. Looked yummy and was a lot to eat. The desserts are extremely delicious. Will be back soon."

  • "Enjoyed our dining experience at The Tavern with our friends. The noise level was a bit much but every thing else was great. I asked for the steak on the Sonoma Steak Salad to be cooked rare and it was perfect!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Overall, we were pleased with our first dining experience at The Tavern. Good variety of food and what we had was excellently prepared. Service was very attentive and friendly - just right. The only "complaint" is that we were seated next to an additional exit (not the main door) on a cold night and we got cold everytime someone went out."

  • "We arrived at the Tavern right on time and checked in as usual. The gentleman with the room temperature IQ informed me that we didn't have a reservation. I immediately showed him my conformation email from open table and he looked completely dumbfounded. I was then informed that I didn't have a reservation and would have to wait 20-30 minutes for a table. At this point we left and dined elsewhere."

Two people had the Red Snapper Creole, the special that night, and were very pleased with the meal. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Their specialty cocktails are also wonderful. Everyone ordered a drink and everyone enjoyed what they had. Our waitress was friendly and took care of us. We enjoyed our experience at this restaurant and we would definitely return."
