    The place is nicely laid out. Nice out front outdoor seating available. Good bar scene for those who prefer that kind of situation. The staff seems quite friendly and it is obvious they like doing the job of serving the customers well.

    We visited this great little place for Valentines Day and have no regrets. Food was great, cocktails were tasty, beer was cold, and service was top notch. We look forward to returning and bonus the outside seating area looks pet friendly so we will bring the our doggo next time.

    Made a reservation a few months in advance for valentines. Got there and we were seated and happy. I happened to be in the path of the ac unit and knew I was going to be cold. I asked the waitress if we could move to one of the several open tables. She goes and ask. A young woman comes and tells us we can’t move because those seats are reserved. Like me seat, right? Right. So I asked can you not sit them in one of the other open tables or the table we are sitting in. She tells me no, that’s not how it works. Ok, so I’m sitting there cold, the restaurant sells no warm beverages, I asked. We order. I ordered the mini burger trio. It comes to me with bacon. I asked the waitress for the menu, maybe I overlooked it. Nope, there is no mention of bacon. I bring this to the waitress attention and she doesn’t offer to bring me a new burger or anything. So I tell her not everyone eats bacon you all should probably include it on the menu or make mention of it. She’s like ok, is there anything else? I also ordered the sweet chili wings or some flavor like that. I was too annoyed to eat them. Now this is the kicker, by the time we got up there were still about 5 open tables. Soooooo WTH? I’ve never understood catering to some potential money when money is in your face. It’s weird to me. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and their food. I don’t think this is a bad place at all. It was very clean, good layout, nicely decorated. The bar was packed. So I’m sure the bartender is amazing. I just didn’t have the best time or experience. Try it and form your own opinions.

    Planned a dinner for a party of 20. The table and set up was very nice. Place is nice overall. The food was not to our liking. The entire party complained about the food. The drinks was mediocre. The waitress wasn’t good. She definitely needed help with servicing the table. Overall I give the place a 3 and we wouldn’t return.

    I loved the restaurant’s decor and the service was great! My meal was ok, burger under seasoned. The one thing I had seen on the menu in the website was the broiled tomato. I was disappointed, it seemed the chefs forgot to put the dish in the broiler as it was cold and the cheese not melted or browned. The server offered to take the cost of the side dish off my bill but I requested that she leave it on the bill. I liked the ambience, location and staff. I will go back and give Midtown Taveren another try!

    Had a hard time finding something appealing on menu. Something a little different. Thought about goat salad but remembered skimpy toppings on a previous visit. Went with fish and chips. Fish was very greasy and needed salt ( not on table). Was hard to track down waitress to get some. had to ask for ketchup for fries. Salmon dinner was good. Server was prompt with drinks and food but hard to catch for missing condiments. Not sure what lane they are trying to fill. Home cooking? Gastropub? Somewhere in the middle

    This was our first visit, and I wish I had known about it before. Great food options in a nice environment. Our waitress was very sweet but we did have to hunt for her a couple of times to start with - got better as the meal progressed. Both of us enjoyed our brunch items, and we thought the food was good and well priced. Very nice vibe to the restaurant - we will return.

    Nice place! Went here for my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint. Service was good, food was delicious, and the atmosphere was comfortable. We all chose the steak frites with the chimichurri sauce and fries. We will visit again soon to try some of the other dishes.

    My bestie and I usually dine out every Friday. This was our second time visiting Midtown Tavern and we were NOT disappointed. During this visit, we had the pleasure of meeting the owner and his beautiful grandmother (the pimento cheese is her delicious recipe). Our server Nicole, was a delight! We will definitely be returning.

    This was our first time for brunch at Midtown and it was fantastic. The selections were impressive and the freshly juiced mimosa options were amazing. We tried the chicken and waffles and the eggs benedict and both meals were filling and tasty. We can't recommend this place enough!

    The food was good and fairly priced, but I feel like this place missed the mark on what they were going for. The live music was very good, but WAY too loud for the space. Conversation (including trying to order) was very difficult. The staff was polite but spread too thin. We were only able to refill our drinks once near the end of our meal. The decor is a definite upgrade over other establishments that have occupied this location, but we were fighting off some sort of bugs that were swarming the lights the whole time we were there. There were families on the patio, but the kids playing in the driveway made it hard to get into the parking lot. Parking for this location has always been a challenge, and it continues to be. All in all, we will be back to give it another try, but our first visit landed firmly on "meh."

    Great date night spot that's casual and cozy. Food is really good and atmosphere is great. I had the chef's salad with chicken tenders, husband had the steak sandwich. We shared the Sweet Chili Chicken Wings as an appetizer and Key Lime Pie for dessert. They also give you big portions and is reasonably priced. They have a nice outdoor patio too. Our server was so nice and we even met the owner who is awesome and local to Augusta.

    Very mediocre. Loud and poor atmosphere. Looked like an afterthought of tables placed. Even had tables in the middle of the room meant to be empty with no chairs - right in the middle of the room. Felt like you were in someone’s messy house

    This was my second visit and I was a bit disappointed. The menu only has a few entrees but there were 3 or 4 specials my first visit that made this ok. This visit, there was one special (the one I’d had last time) and the bar was out of the ingredients for the cocktail I wanted from their menu. At the end of our meal, my bf tried ordering a different drink from the menu, but they didn’t have the ingredients for that cocktail either. Positives: the burger and wings were very good and the tavern was clean and nicely set. I’m so glad they take reservations. I’ll give them a 3rd try soon.
