    Had a reservation and got right in. Food was fine but my burger and fries was $17 (little high) - server was rushed and inattentive at times. They decided to set up for brunch for the next day at 8 pm so lots of loud scraping of tables and chairs around us. I asked if they were closing and wanted us to leave and they said no. Overall it was fine.

    This was our first time dining at 4th Tavern, but we will be back. We are new to the area. The service was great!! It’s a busy place, but our drinks and food all arrived timely and was spot on. Good portions and well prepared.

    I was looking. Forward to trying this restaurant. Unfortunately it was horrible. The food was terrible as well as the service. My food came over 5 minutes after everyone else’s. The other person in my party’s order was not correct. She ordered no potatoes and double vegetable. Rather than just bringing her a second vegetable they took her entire plate and did not return for 10 minutes. When the plate was returned to the table the steak was awful. As a side note I asked the manager to change one of the tv channels to watch the end of the football game. She said she would do it and never did. Restaurant was loud and chaotic. I will not be returning or recommending this restaurant to anyone.

    Fantastic! We had chicken satay appetizer - amazing! Whitefish was delicious and plentiful. Perch was great (not as good as whitefish). And my husband had the nacho appetizer as a meal - perfect. Can't say enough good things. Will definitely be back!

    The food was very good. All four of us enjoyed our meals and agreed we'd order our dishes again. And all of them were pretty big portions. I suppose prices were well in line with other restaurants, but I guess I have to get used to the post-'rona, inflation higher costs.

    Nice place. Have been there twice now since discovering it back in July. Nice outdoor covered patio. Food has been excellent both times. The sauteed perch was some of the best I have ever eaten.

    My husband and I went to try out the place for his birthday. The ambiance was good and the place is nicely situated on the lake, but the food was of poor quality. I got the cherry BBQ glazed Salmon and the orzo rice tasted like refrigerate and my husband got the Bone in Ribeye and it was of poor quality! He ended taking it home and feeding it to our dog. Overpriced in my opinion. You can have better food in Longhorn rather than there! Will not recommend!

    I would say everything was about average. I thought it was a lot more casual place then I expected it to be. I had requested outside reservations, and we were seated outside, but it was very close to the wall of the restaurant, so didn't really have a scenic view like we wanted. We asked to be moved closer to the water for a better view, but all those seats were being saved for larger dining parties.

    We waited 10 minutes before signaling for a server to approach our table. A large table seated after us had their drinks and salads before we even saw our waitress. This was our second visit and by watching other tables saw they served a bread basket that we were never offered either visit. Late start but after putting in our order we were served our salad and then entree before 1/4 through the salad. The dinner felt rushed. Great food and great location but poor service.

    Food and atmosphere were great, but the service. Our waiter was horrendous. He was rude and just couldn’t be bothered. He never read the specials, didn’t even tell us there were any. While we were trying to order, he didn’t even let us finish. He just kept saying “next “. I had to ask for a drink refill as he was walking away from the table. No others were offered. He brought the bill, and when we asked for separate bills, he became upset, and told us we didn’t ask for that. He never asked if we wanted desert or anything further, and blatantly examined his tip amount when he picked up the bill.

    We loved our server Whit!! He took such great care of us and made our experience wonderful . We sat outside and watched people leave the restaurant on their boat and it was just a relaxed and truly enjoyable experience. Our salmon and pasta dinners were delicious and we left feeling very full and happy!!

    I went to lunch with a friend based on reviews I read for this establishment. As noted in the star review I did, things were average at best and service was poor. While the server was polite, they did not check on us often or offer refills of our drinks. I try to mindful of the fact that may businesses are short staffed but we were there at the tail end of the lunch rush. May tables cleared out after we arrived and I feel as though we simply were just forgotten.

    Always good, consistent food. The staff is friendly and accommodating. It does sometimes get very loud. The bar area could use some atmosphere, maybe some pendant lighting and TV's in the middle.

    Love the open patio on the lake. Perfect for a nice summer day. Great $4.50 margarita for Tuesday Happy hour. Overall the food was good with good value for the price. One caution, the quinoa kale salad was awful and tasted like the kale had been washed in fishy water or something. Will not try that again though it has been good at the sister restaurant , 5th Tavern.

    Ate outside, felt very comfortable. Server was very attentive. Dinner was great, for adults, teens and young kids. Lots of options. They were flexible with dietary changes. I felt the restaurant was clean. Kids enjoyed playing on the lawn out back- kept them entertained while waiting for food. Overall, great value, and experience!!
