We had the Hawaiian steak and it was amazing. Mine rare and the wife's med rare and both were cooked perfectly. All 4 dinners were great and we will be back.

Crab appetizer was great. Blackened fettuccini with shrimp was not blackened at all. Cajun fries had no seasonings at all. Just regular fries. The Dijon glazed pork chops had no Dijon glaze. It’s like everything was only half prepared. Very disappointed in everything but the appetizer

Really enjoyed the variety of food choices. Pricing was very affordable, and food was very good. Avocado sticks were very tasty. Good atmosphere.

We were quite pleased with the menu variety. We were there in time to get in on a happy hour deal - a flatbread pizza and two glasses of house wine for $15! The dinner portions were enormous. Both the pot roast and the chicken marsala were delicious. The owner stopped by to check in and hear our feedback. We are hoping to come back on a Tuesday for the steak night! Our server could have been a wee bit more attentive - water glasses sat empty for far too long.

My wife and I ordered the flatbreads and the crust was tough and chewy and did not seem fresh. Disappointed in the crust but the toppings were very good.

The waiter was very attentive and friendly without being overbearing. He was paid special attention to our 5 year old grandson, acknowledging him and made a big deal about him being good and getting to pick a toy out of the treasure chest.
The food was brought out hot and we were brought out small plates for sharing without having to ask. Everyone enjoyed the evening.

Tabards Ale House was a great little place to eat for a low key Christmas eve dinner. We were looking for somewhere to eat without all the hoopla of the holiday interfering. We were dressed casual and felt it was appropriate for this environment. Food was great, my son enjoyed the bacon flight, how fun! They have a fantastic gluten free menu which is a must for the Celiac in our group, me. Loved the decor, felt like an old timey tavern, my kind of place. Plenty to choose from on the menu and all the food was good. We had a wonderful time. Staff including the owner were very gracious and interacting.

I had the Dijon pork chop, which was wonderful. Unfortunately, the asparagus side dish was not properly prepared. The asparagus was not trimmed properly. It was also markedly overcooked, tough and soggy. Asparagus needs just to be blanched for 3-4 minutes. I am surprised that the chef does not know how to prepare a relatively simple side dish.

Our first time here. We enjoyed it quite a lot. Our server was great and the food was good. My Greek salad was delicious and my husband loved his pork kabobs. However, I wish there were more healthy options on the menu.

Menu was a little better than your average bar and grill but atmosphere was very casual and fairly plain. Maybe that's just not what we were in the mood for - wanted something a little nicer. Vegetarian options limited - 1 veggie burger. Husband wanted pasta in a non-cream sauce but not an option. I got herbed shrimp with rice and grilled veggies. Shrimp was in a liquid sauce which was good. Had bread to dip in the sauce - toast would have been a little better. Rice was a bit bland but grilled veggies were super. Drinks were all good.

This was our first visit to Tabard’s, made for early Saturday evening on a football weekend. Fortunately we had made reservations in advance, since the place was jammed with a large, noisy crowd. However we were immediately shown to a booth, and our very attentive waiter appeared as soon as we were settled in to take our drink orders. We were impressed by the mammoth selection of beers from all over the world, and easily settled on two of our favorites while perusing the menu for dinner. We began dinner by choosing an order of Tabard’s pretzel sticks, which came four to a plate, hot from cooking, and with both a mustard and a cream sauce. Very good, but almost too much before dinner so we decided to take several home with us for later enjoyment!

The entree selections were numerous, and the prices appeared quite reasonable by Kansas City standards. We both decided to try the fish and chip platter, and wondered why our waiter asked if we waned one order or two - We learned the answer when our plates appeared, both loaded with three nicely sized pieces of white fish (cod? halibut?) coated with a light batter and perfectly fried. In addition our plates were loaded with huge portions of Tabard’s Cajun fries, which turned out to be the highlight of the meal for us! The fries, simply put, were the best I’d eaten anywhere in the world, and by themselves would have justified return visits for more of the same - perfectly cooked on the outside with some sort of coating, creamy on the inside, and not the least bit soggy. The only problem was the quantity, which could easily have fed both my wife and I from a single plate!

We had no room to try desserts, and departed with a box containing several pretzels and several pieces of fish, but we will certainly be back to try some of their other offerings in the near future. The only drawback to the evening was the high noise level, but the excellent food and service more than made up for that.

Volume for the chiefs Game was not turned on my friends avocado toast came out and looked horrendous hardly any avocado! The bloody Mary bar was OK but you had to make your own so if you’re not a connoisseur but like them you don’t really know how to make them taste good! The flat bread was not cooked all that well the only thing that was really good was the bananas French toast and the hummus dip!!

Server lacked an innate rhythm/ability to read people.
Food was ok. Skirt steak was overly chewy, not fresh, either nuked or not tenderized.
Unwilling to order/time delivery of food to table as requested.

Neutral observation only: sorta loud for a Thursday night.

My girlfriend and I met another couple for drinks, stayed for dinner, which let to more drinks. It surprisingly wasn't that busy and had lots of open tables. It's always better to have a reservation vice showing up to stand by the bar for a long time. I've already told my friends about the great time. They had a list of beers I haven't had. I sampled the Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel, then drank 5 more glasses of it. Amazing. I'm taking my buddies next month when they fly in. The coffee burger was delicious. I usually stick to ordering and eating the same damn thing everywhere we normally go. I stepped outside of my comfort zone and was pleased with my decision. I'll order it again.

While getting lots of positive press right now - Tabard's Ale House is a solid new addition to the Overland Park pub scene. The afternoon we were there (Saturday) - it was packed and lots of folks makes for lots of noise. Be prepared to have "loud conversations" as it is a rambunctious crowd! The food was good and parts of it were great. We started with the pretzels and they were hot and delicious. The French Dip sandwich was excellent and while they call one of their sides "cajun fries" - that does not mean they are spicy. Instead it means they are double fried with a batter layer. Hot and tasty but don't be scared off by the word "cajun". The jerk pork skewers were overcooked and tough so would not recommend those and their burgers may be magnificent unless you want just a plain cheeseburger. When you remove all the custom fixin's - the burgers are better almost anywhere else. Also had the wedge salad as an entree. For the price - I expected a large wedge but instead it was small - only 1/8th of the iceberg lettuce head. I expected a 1/4 size. It was delicious however so I do recommend it.

What would make a server in a restaurant think it is acceptable to call me "sweetie"? I find this highly offensive and it soured the entire experience at Tabard's for me. The food was good, however, the room was loud, the table cards were unclear about when Happy Hour was and wasn't, and the staff, as noted, was obnoxious.

We really wanted to like this place.

We have been to Tabard's Ale House 3 times in the past two weeks. First for a debate watch party in their wonderful large room with many screens to watch; next for a delightful happy hour to watch the women't soccer semi final game and lastly, for Brunch and to watch the women's Soccer final game. All had very tasty food; wonderful service and a great place to watch. We are thrilled to find a local place so close to home with great food and many screens to watch things we cannot see at home.
