Overall, City Tavern was great. The beer was delicious. The service was friendly. Entrees were very tasty. They've done a good job creating a comfortable and fun outdoor space.
Our only disappointment was the appetizer sweet potato tots, which we remembered fondly from previous visits. This time they were covered in some kind of sugar (maple syrup??). Insanely sweet. They needed some spicy sauce to counteract the sugar. Better still....just let them be sweet potatoes!
But overall we really enjoyed our meal.

Food was good. The service wasn’t great, we waited a long time for bottomless mimosa and didn’t get to take advantage of bottomless for the amount of time we spent at the restaurant. Overall, I would still recommend this place for brunch. It is lively and the food is good.

Excellent food and drink! Service a little slow, but I think the waitress was in the weeds. Otherwise, great experience👍🏽

We were a party of 6. We ordered burgers and the steak and lobster tail. The burgers were great. But our steak came out overcooked... and the fries seem to have been fried in oil that was old. It was not a great experience

Great service, new trainee, she was excellent. Food was great, although they don’t have fish and chips anymore. Brussels sprouts were amazing.

Always a good time. Got to sit outside and relax. Attentive service, but no rushing us. Food and drinker were delicious and filling. Sharing the short rib poutine started everything off well.

The service here was absolutely incredible! They were so attentive to us and our dogs. They immediately brought out bowls of water and moved us to a table that would be easier to sit at with them. We didn’t ask, they suggested it and moved everything for us. I just can’t say enough how wonderful all of the staff was. The food was good though I wouldn’t mind seeing a pancake option on the breakfast menu. My omelet was solid though. Great experience here. Will definitely be back.

The restaurant accepted my reservation but was closed WITHOUT NOTICE when I arrived. I was supposed to have a very important business dinner with my boss here but we were stuck outside with the other unhappy customers who got jipped tonight. Awful experience. Had to find another restaurant at the last second.

The shrimp tacos and taco truck chicken sandwich were scrumptious! Love the drinks and the outside patio with my favorite 70’s & 80’s music. This is my go to restaurant for always getting fabulous food!

Great food, drinks and service in a relaxed atmosphere! Where else can you get the perfect surf and turf, with 6 oz. each of steak and lobster, plus spinach and mashed potatoes, for $34?!

We had an outstanding experience at city Tavern for brunch on Sunday. We were able to make a reservation which was a huge plus, and the staff was courteous friendly and attentive. The food across-the-board was delicious, creative and presented well, and everyone was pleased with their portions. It’s difficult to stand out in this field as an American tavern but city Tavern really did the little things in addition to General excellence that made the meal. Special credit goes to the staff that was friendly and on its toes throughout the entire meal. Everyone found specialties that they enjoyed and we will absolutely be back for more.

Loved the inside table near the bar! Food was really good and bar drink was delicious. Service was just so-so but they were training new staff. We waited a long time after we ate to be asked if we wanted desert (they didn’t ask) and then longer to get the Bill. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the music and the ambiance. Would go again!
