Surprisingly great place to go for a business lunch. Really like the grain bowl, but I have to admit great jealousy for the couple enjoying what looked like great chicken wings.

Tanner Smith's is a fun tavern with great food. We enjoyed the brunch on a Saturday. The menu wasn't big but the choices were varied. They were kind enough to make substitutions for me, very accommodating. All in all a very nice experience.

Almost everything was great, however... I was there for the Tipsy Tea brunch which I thought included Jazz. I was seated so far away from the music that it was impossible to hear. To top that, other music was being piped in which added to the frustration of not being able to hear the jazz group.

Overall we had a good experience at Tanner Smith's. The decor and general atmosphere are a lot of fun, and the service was very good. We were there on a Saturday, and there was live music, which was fun as well. Unfortunately, it was very noisy to the point of being unable to hold a conversation. I had the Burrata Cheese Salad with steak. It was good, but the steak was very rare, rather than the medium rare I'd requested. My dining companion had the Brussels Sprouts Hash and loved it. The carrot cake was excellent as well. I would definitely go back, but probably with a group rather than a one on one situation.

4 of us went on a Sunday for brunch. Food and drinks were great. Service was a little slow but our server was working hard. He had tables scattered all over the place. There was live music that played jazz and blues and they were awesome. Definitely get reservations for better seating. We will be back.

It was my friend’s birthday. We came on Sunday for breakfast brunch and jazz. Everything was lovely: yammy food, great music... I just wish they had gluten-free, dairy-free dessert, so we could sing her a happy birthday song. It would definitely make our experience that much more special.

Interesting decor - speakeasy style and lots of little knick knacks, if you like that stuff. They had a live jazz band (Sunday brunch) which was nice, though they were in the very front and seating was primarily in a back room. Brunch food was mediocre - nothing special (grilled cheese sandwich and caramelized pear salad w/ shrimp). Service was lacking. Waitress was hard to flag down after initially sent away when we weren't immediately ready to order. And didn't show up again until we flagged her down for our check at the end of our meal.

Great ambiance, live music , attentive service ... However, we went there for lunch and no one was particularly happy with the food . Blunt and no imagination.While this is first and foremost a bar and a cool place to meet it is let down by the food . There are plenty of great gastropubs out there that are way better .... time to rethink their menu and dining options ....

The only place we go for brunch in the city. We love the jazz band, food and they have the best cocktails. If you like jazz then make sure to request to be near the band. We have been there multiple times and each time is better than the last!

Cool ambience. Lots of old saloon decorating touches. There was live music in the front of the restaurant. Although the music was terrific, I was so glad that we were seated in the back, so that we could have a conversation without screaming. We arrived about noon for brunch and the place was pretty quiet, But by one it had filled up. The brunch menu is somewhat limited. Great if you are in the mood for eggs. But if you're not a fan, the other choices were very limited.

Tanner Smith has a super-friendly staff and fresh, delicious food in a festive atmosphere.Options are plentiful, jazz on Sundays is great to listen to and drinks are great. Special shout out to Terry, our wonderful host and Ashling and Anna. They give us a special, warm Irish welcome every time we come. So rare to find a homey atmosphere like this in our fare city.

Was looking for a good spot for lunch with my parents and sister. The food was great, service was good, it was a little quiet during lunch, which we didn’t mind at all. Our waitress was very personable and even gave us a remedy for hiccups I’d never heard of before... I would definitely go back.

Nice ambiance and good jazz during brunch. The alcohol is better than the food, but if you want a laid back dark bar to hang in with not terrible prices, it fits the bill. Avoid the Mac n cheese—very bland.

This was a great place to grab lunch before the theater matinee. They had us in and out in no time, but we didn't feel rushed at all.

They offer a very interesting brunch menu. All of our choices were really good. I'd go there again.

I was disappointed when the menu was different than the one on Open Table, I chose this place for a specific item, when I expressed my disappointment the server reacted poorly and continued to avoid us for the duration of the meal. Despite that, my second choice was still good food.
