Diner Reviews
  • "Actually only booked for two & showed up w a guest. No problem for them, we didn't even wait despite offering. Super nice and everything hand made. We had burgers and the nachos w pulled pork added. Seemed like fewer chips than last time but had right amount for the qty of toppings -always piled high and no soggy chips at the bottom either. Had beers and had a vendor let us try some new beers too. Friendly atmosphere and good service."

  • "We enjoyed burgers and the Southwest salad here on Father's Day. We at inside, but I believe they did have outdoor tables as well. There was no wait, and the food was very good. We'll be back!"

  • "Great to have a nice local place in Cary that has both great food and great service plus a nice list of draft brew beers!"

  • "Met some friends there after work and had personable bartenders take good care of us. The menu had a lot of BBQ type items but they were very interesting and unique treatments or combinations that I want to try when I come back."

  • " I enjoyed my meal. The burger was great. My chips were nicely crisp but could have had more salt. The tavern was much smaller than I thought it would be when making my reservation."

  • "They have a great bean burger and the Mac and cheese is fantastic. It can be loud and annoying on trivia nights unless you are in the mood to play."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I'm big for burgers and all I can say is that I will keep on coming back until I have tried all their burgers (I have tried 3 different burgers so far, and all of them are 5/5 so far)"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Tried the place out with some friends and our families overall we loved the menu and the food was very tasty. The service was not great it that the server didn't really understand the menu. We had some challenges getting what we asked for as well and it made for a rather chaotic dining experience. We will probably try it again sometime and hopefully the service will be better."

  • "West Park Tavern continues to provide very good food at very good prices with good service. Black & Blue burger with onion straws was very good. The GBLT sandwich and flatbread are consistent winners. Selection of draft beer is really quite good. Just nothing to compare to this local pub with great food."

  • "New to town and looking for a good neighborhood beer and food place. Bacon bruschetta was very well done, and in general I got the impression that if WPT isn't chef run, they at least have a chef somehow involved. Very pleased about the food quality and beer list."

  • "West Park Tavern in Cary is one of my favorites for food, drinks, and meeting friends! The staff are friendly and we love that the owners are there helping out. They have daily specials and a great e-mailed newsletter. TRIVIA night with Mario on Wednesdays is our favorite day to go! Go check it out!"

  • "The food, service, were great. However, we were there on a Friday night and there were a lot of noisey kids not controlled by parents. We enjoued ourselves. I especially liked the ability to reserve a table. We will be back."

  • "Go for the great selection of local draft beers and stay for the excellent food. Portions are BIG, prices are affordable, and the taste is excellent. Staff is friendly and attentive, also very knowledgeable about the menu and local beers. This is a must go to place if you are in the area."

  • "We came here for a school function and we really loved the food and beer selection. Plus with options for the kids you can't go wrong. But when we went it was so hot in the back of the dining room we almost left. The server tried her best to work with us and bring the heatdown a bit but sadly it persisted. This is a great spot that we may try again but sit closer to the front of the dining room and avoid the back."

  • "Had coupon so gave it a try on a Friday night. Very good beer prices, actually best in the area, $2 PBR and another brand, $3.25 domestic bottles. My wife and I shared the onion rings and we each had a wedge salad. The food was good. Portion sizes are large. My wife and I could have almost stopped at the onion rings and beer, and we could easily have split a wedge salad no problem. There was a range of customer ages - lots of middle aged and several families with young children. Seating at the bar was filled, so this is always a good sign in my opinion. They had live entertainment scheduled for 9pm, but we didn't stay around long enough. All in all a good dinner out. Would go there again, but maybe we would skip the appetizer next time."

  • "Four of us dined at West Park on a Sunday evening - first visit for all of us. We found the portions quite substantial and the food delicious, but not fancy - just what we wanted. While everyone enjoyed his or her food, the wahoo tacos got the most raves. It's a casual sports bar/neighborhood tavern atmosphere."

  • "This place was surprisingly good and the food a lot better than I expected it to be. The staff was awesome and stayed on top of everything. They are about 30 minutes away from where I live, but its definitely a place that will visit again. The prices were reasonable and it was a great place for a Valentine's Day date."

  • "Out visit was a casual family birthday with a party of 10, including a 4 and 2 year old. Everyone had fun. Food was tasty and good value. Great selection of draft beers. Our server was awesome. We will be back."

  • "West Park Tavern is a great local place for families, guys gatherings, or just dinner for two. The food is FAR beyond typical bar food quality, and is very affordable. They also have a great selection of draft beers, and TVs all around that you can see, but aren't blaring in your ears! We're definitely going back more often!"

  • "Excellent food, great server, we will add this to our list of favorites!"

  • "The menu has been updated since the restaurant has opened, and it's a huge improvement. I've now visited several times and have loved what I've ordered. Good Work, keep it up. It's nice to have a good restaurant close to home."

  • "Seems like every time I visit the menu has changed and not for the better. I thought this was a neighborhood pub, not sure what it is trying to be"

  • "First time dinning here. After a long tiring day during the holidays just needed some simple comfort and came away with my mood lifted. I was not in my usual neighborhood and found this establishment using "ness" app on my phone. It is good to see people who are exceptional at what they do for a living. Excellent food and service made me wish I was a local. Cheers and Merry Christmas indeed."

    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "My wife and I went to watch some live music, but ended up having a great dinner. The menu is quite eclectic, I'm not a foodie, but menu seems to be created by one. I enjoyed a roast beef sandwich and my wife had a burger which were excellent. Bar food that's a step above. The service was extremely attentive. We asked a server if it's always this way and he said they have some new staff and so there was a lot of back-up, however, they do train having each others back and any table is your table which we think is a great approach."

  • "The food was real good and plenty of it. However, we were right in front of where the band played and it was super loud. Couldn't talk or hear friends."

  • "We had a reservation for 20 and ended up with more people, the restaurant was very accommodating with our large group. Our server even cut and delivered the cake we brought in! We all had a great time."

  • "Surprised not crowded on Halloween night since there was entertainment, a DJ. Had reservations but did not need them. Waitstaff very pleasant and hovered a little since not busy with other customers. DJ's music was very loud, especially considering small crowd. Restaurant is clean, decor fitting and in a great location. Food is consistently good here and a better than average selection and quality of "bar" food. Will go again and want to try brunch."

  • "Had heard many good things about this place and went to try it. I had the shrimp quesidillas that were recommended and they were good, though more fried than usual, therefore heavy. My husband had the wings which he said were the Worst he's ever had!! He thought they'd been cooked the day before and reheated. Meat was totally dry and not even served wet or with a sauce. When he asked for a sauce he was brought something that tasted like pure Tabasco and was inedible. Typical sports bar atmosphere, patio overlooks parking. We will not return."

  • "Reservation made but when entered host confirmed then brought us to worst table. Training the host is often missed yet it's the 1st impression and it could have set a more positive tone....or, they don't like Open Table reservations. Service was spotty as they were training a new person. Food good. Good beer selections. I will try again to see if we caught them on a bad night."

  • "Food and portions were phenomenal. The service could've been better. The waitress was more concerned about distributing the bills rather than refilling the drinks. If you're seeking a good bang for your buck, go for it. If you're huge on customer experience, and exceptional customer service as I am. You may want to go somewhere else."

  • "What a great find!!!! Stellar beer list, and a wide rage of food to choose from!! We couldn't have asked for better service!!!"

  • "Great variety on the menu, high-quality food and excellent service. Some excellent, unique dishes, including the mac & cheese (a meal and a half), meat loaf sliders, onion rings, etc., plus a fantastic selection of beers. Not just "bar food", but a tavern with really good food. And attentive service, whether you're just a couple or a group of ten people."
