Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Great service and very good food. 6 in party all with different selections. Everyone pleased. The room is long and gets very noisy. We had to shout to talk once the live music started. Suggest requesting table in back room of restaurant inorder to more easily converse with your party.

We have dined at 1920 in the past and it was outstanding! This time however, was a complete disaster for multiple reasons. First, our server was unmasked which is fine if that is what you choose but she was in our face every time she came to our table (like a close talker). There was absolutely zero distancing. Even without a pandemic it would have been uncomfortable. Our food was bad - not just one item, but all items we ordered. The salad was soggy, the muscles were old and gamey tasting, my trout had a horrible taste to it like it was also old and my husbands short ribs tasted like a TV dinner. The entire experience was a disappointment :(

The menu offered a wide variety of items that in my opinion had something for everyones taste. We had dinner at a prime time, 8:00 o'clock Saturday evening and the place was packed and the energy level high. We opted to wait for an outside table rather than be seated inside. Our party consisted of 2 couples and we wanted to be able to have a conversation during dinner. The noise level inside inside was very loud and we felt would make conversation difficult. The food was great from beginning to end. Three of us had the filet minion which was cooked to perfection and one of us had the lobster and shrimp spaghetti dish. The spaghetti actually had large chunks of lobster and whole shrimp with a broth sauce which was a delicious change from the usual cream style sauce. Super desserts and a very tasty flash fried cheese cake which was an ideal size to allow sharing among guests. Good service but not fast so if time plays a part in your plans you may want to rethink eating there. We will most certainly will go back again. Good value for the dollar.

Everything was spectacular!! Our waitress wasn’t immediately available so the owner brought us water and checked on us regularly. We went for the 1/2 price bottles of wine special and it was delicious and affordable. We sat next to the kitchen and it looked very busy. But you wouldn’t know it because the food came out without haste and was hot and delicious.

We had another enjoyable evening at the Tavern. Sat in the back where it is a little quieter. Tried a couple of new items along with our favorites. The Tuna tacos and the white chocolate cheesecake were terrific. The Catena Malbec wine is a very good value. Our server, Desiree, was perfect. Becoming one of our favorite restaurants.

The food looked great, but sadly lacked in flavor for the most part. We ordered calamari as an appetizer which was awesome. The entrees we ordered were beef short ribs, fried chicken dinner and the petit filet. While everything was cooked well(chicken was crispy, steak was cooked as ordered), for the most part each dish lacked flavor. The mashed potatoes were dry, the short rib was also less than desirable. Even the bread was fiercely dense and hard to chew. The drinks we ordered weren’t bad though. Won’t be returning…

Best date night we've had in a while! My Pink Starburst was incredible. It actually tasted like a pink starburst candy. Even my husband liked it b/c the sweet was balanced perfectly with the tartness. Steak salad was perfection. Husband had the grouper, and the sauce pulled his dish together beautifully. He doesn't normally acknowledge sauces, but the entire meal he kept referring to it. On top of outstanding food, our server was a joy. Erica was attentive, personable and could tell we were open to chatting, so she engaged with us making the evening extra fun. We will be back with friends!
