The apps came out fine. It went sharply down hill from there. Korean Short rib Taco was WAY too spicy. Mac&Cheese with “toppings” became very pricey and the additions were not of value for the money.
Steak was the toughest steak I can remember eating. I did not send back because I was very hungry. We informed the Manager who made a joke of how it was “his fault”. We didn’t want anything but to make them aware.
Won’t be back. Could be a cool place if they focus a little on what’s one the menu. Deals and specials become worthless if it’s not good.
Everything was great, but it's even better when your wait staff is a little more happier. We plan on going back and hope if we have the same waitress, she will have a happier day.
Love the buffet style for drinks
Good food and a nice atmosphere. Recommended!
Great Taco's! we love coming to this location. Menu is excellent, spirit selection is wonderful, and always has lots of TV's if you happen to go during a game. This visit we experienced out first challenge, we go almost every month. we could not get service. we were seated, no one came over. we asked for help, nothing. we went back to the front desck, and then they moved our seats. Initial service was still slow, by slow, I mean after the first 10 min, no one stopped by. 25 minutes in we got our first drinks. weird. ,
Our server was beyond excellent! My dinner was great the others said theirs was okay.
The nachos?? Not great at all. We should have sent them back to be honest.
will we come back again? Hmmm, maybe to the bar side for a drink or two.
Birthday dinner was amazing!
Food and service were good. The Ahi appetizer was great and the rest of our order was as expected. We were seated close to the front door on a cold night, so we had to keep our coats on through the meal. That was an inconvenience.
Food was very good and home cooking style. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Prices were very reasonable.
The food was deliciously yummy!
Incredibly noisy. Got ordersincorrect. Should have room4office parties or get tigethers not out in the open.
Server was young, inexperienced, and not knowledgeable of the menu. Check was delivered while we were still eating dinner. Never were asked if we wanted anything else to drink or dessert.
We like Park Tavern, but it can be hit-or-miss with service. We recently got solid-average service when we were used to better. We also got some dry and cold food when normally the food is served at it's best. We can't do a thing about the noise, and this joint is all hard surfaces. We'll likely keep going and we'll likely get a "hit" next time, but if we keep coming up "miss," we're going to stop.
Great location and great atmosphere. It was noisy, which was fine with me. The server and service was excellent!! The food was okay. Ordered the crab pretzel, as an appetizer, which was good. For entrees, we ordered two crab crakes. The crab cakes were bland and not like Eastern Shore (home). The size of the crab crakes were great. I would go back, just would try something different.
Took my family from out of town for the Black Friday Brunch. We had such a great time at the "Bottomless Brunch Bar". Always a consistent great experience no matter the day or time we go here. One of our favorite places to go in Severna Park.
My favorite local spot. Love to go there. Best draft beer list around. Good food. Always fun.
Lovely! Food is really great but a little inconsistent. However, it’s a favorite of ours regardless.
We try to support Park Tavern but the service is atrocious and the food can be spotty. The last time we visited we ordered buratta tomato salad and they tried to pass off goat cheese and tomato. This time it took us so long to get our food we paid before the food arrived and the server gave us to-go boxes...all before the food arrived. I ordered a side, didn’t get it, ordered sweet potato fries, got normal, forgot the second beer until we had half of the meal eaten, which we were scarfing down because we had to go. Overall, such a poor experience. We’ll be writing to them directly.
A great local haunt with great food and friendly service. Our go-to.
Definately! And my friends and I will be back -- expecially on oyster night and for happy hours.
The food was very good, but we waited too long to get the food. In addition, when we ordered a brownie and ice cream for dessert, we thought we would get it in 5 minutes or so, but nothing came after 10 or 15 minutes (how long does it take to cut a brownie a put a scoop of ice cream on a plate?) We ended up having to tell the waitress that we had to cancel that portion of the order as we were on time constraints to be somewhere else in 20 minutes. She was apologetic. It really wasn't her fault because she wasn't the person to bring out the dinner or the dessert.
I would recommend Park Tavern, but the service could have been better.
Park Tavern is always good. Try to Smoked Essence Manhattan!
Have been here many times, this was the first time sitting at an outside table. As always the food was very good, but the whole experience was spoiled by the following:
- we sampled beer, but were served different beers than we tried and ordered...twice.
- service was painfully slow, the time between receiving the beer samples and getting a chance to order a beer took longer than it did to receive and eat our food. Every choice took forever to receive.
- on and off smoke made its way from the front of the restaurant to the outside tables...
We will probably eat there again, but never outside and I hope the service is better as it seemed out of the ordinary based on previous experiences.
I enjoyed my first visit and will be back. Good selection of food, the food was tasty, and the service was very good.
Have always liked Park Tavern but the food was disappointingly bland this time. Fish and chips were not edible. No specials were on the menu. I understand that there was a change in chefs. Thus seems to have thrown off everything. The service was mediocre as well. They did not even have the little mints they usually have.
The food and drinks were delicious and ambiance is great. When the rush came, our food and drink too a little longer. But nothing that would be reason for me not to go back.
It took our party over an hour to receive our food. It was first explained to us that there were staffing problems in the kitchen. That was later denied by the manager who told us that in fact our server had delayed relaying our dinner choices to the kitchen. The manager then told us we would receive a discount which wasn't reflected in the bill we later received. The server also told us that the fish ordered by two of our party was fresh when indeed it was frozen. Dishonesty all around.
Came late on a Sunday night. Fries were overdone. Brussels sprouts were underdone. Service was okay. Been here many times. First time I was ever disappointed. Late Sunday nights probably not best representation of typical
Sitting bar side, be sure you're ready not to talk to your date!
The food is always good at Park Tavern. I recommend the brussel sprout appetizer and I normally do NOT like brussel sprouts!
My gym buddies and I decided to re-visit Park Tavern for one of the girls Birthdays. The entire experience was AWESOME. They surprised us with a sweet treat for our Birthday girl and everyone loved Park Tavern, our waitress, our food and our specialty drinks. We go every month and it just keeps getting better. I recommend Park Tavern to all my friends. Thank you for making our evening so special. Delighted and very happy customer, Pennie Burroughs
We've had several average (at best) experiences in the past but it is really close by, the atmosphere is good, and my kids were begging to go so given that it has been average-or-miss, we took another shot this past week. The good news is that the kids have finally realized that Park Tavern is frankly not very good and that there are lots of better places to go, at least in terms of a dining experience. Common issues that have occurred on multiple occasions include: Screwing up orders, extremely slow food delivery, incorrect checks (always too much rather than too little). If I wanted to meet a friend for a drink, I might consider Park Tavern again, but we will definitely not be going to back for the poor food and mediocre service.
Delicious food--very extensive brunch menu--reasonable prices, and the service is wonderful. There are a lot of good restaurants in the area, but the Park Tavern is one of the best.
Went for their burger night - very reasonable price for a great burger. Little noisy, but server was excellent.
Honestly it was awful. Bad service bad food... second to last time was the same thing. No more chances. We have had to talk to the manager the last 3-4 times we went there.
Food took quite a while (30+ min). 2.5 out of 3 entrees were nearly room temperature. The to-go entree was brought with all of our meals so it was definitely cold when I got home.
Food was really good — certainly better than other tavern food I’ve had. Great beer selection too.
Great food and service! Well definitely go back again.
Went for dinner with another couple on a Sunday night. Nachos with chili were good appetizer but sandwiches that we had for dinner were not as good. The place was very busy so service was a bit slow. Recommend this place for weekend brunch instead which features a better menu.
