My friend and I had a great time at the Tavern. The restaurant does a very good job partitioning off the smaller booths and bar seatings with Plexiglas panels so you really feel protected from people walking by. Our server was lovely, and made our meal especially enjoyable.

Our first visit was a great surprise, much better than expected. Terrific menu, great beer and wine selections, nice atmosphere and terrific service. A little more pricey then expected but not too bad. I’ll be back!

Everything was great about the visit except the eggs benedict and bacon were cold. The hollandaise sauce was more congealed than creamy. We did not send it back because it tasted fine, but it was a bit disappointing.

It is casual and festive. The noise level is not overbearing, but gives it that fun festive feeling. Food and service is always excellent and so many gluten free choices makes it my favorite!!

Beautiful open patio on a gorgeous Sunday. One of the few open for Brunch on Sundays. Lots of options, and the French toast bites ate to die for! Only two complaints, "well" ordered steak came out raw and had to be remade, and server was unfamiliar with a couple menu items we asked about. Otherwise, I terrific, relaxing Sunday morning meal!!

Although we were seated promptly and our server was courteous, we couldn't eat because of the insanely loud noise levels. There was no way to have a conversation without yelling. Not conducive to an enjoyable meal. We left without ordering. Very disappointing experience.

In the time of Covid there seemed to be many larger parties of groups of people that clearly didn't live together.

I get a little put out when I order water instead of alcohol and it takes so long to get another water. This is never the case when we order alcohol they run right over to ask if you need another one.

I made a reservation , it wasn’t for a high top. They put us at a high top next to the door , it was cold so we asked to be moved. They were clearly annoyed but moved us to a booth ( still near the door). The waitress was very good. We ordered dessert and when we paid the bill., the manager came over and and told us we needed to leave because another party had reserved that table. I thought it was really rude and inconsiderate . Food was mediocre.

It was my first time visiting this restaurant so I didn't really know what to expect. The food and service were excellent, although it was on the expensive side. The atmosphere was a little loud and hard to hear but other than that it was great.

The menu has enough variety for all.

The portions are more then you can eat (makes for great leftovers).

The service is always great along with the atmosphere.

Gluten free options are very good. Thrilled to be able to have Sweet Potatoe Fries. They have a dedicated fryer. Waitress Abby was wonderful. Overheard us talking about my birthday and she ordered me GFREE dessert. Sweet and it was awesome.

We arrived had reservations, but wanted to sit and the bar. I had called previous and they stated first come first serve. The hostess informed us that it was unavailable. We sat at a high top and watched the bar for a hour and it was still available.! The bar had at least 4 seats at any given time. My friends and I are not planning on going back there any time soon. The service was not the best felt as those we were being rushed...

We were told upon arrival that there was only a 1 1/2 hr length allowed at table. It took 30 minutes for someone to finally acknowledge us. Once we were finally waited on we ordered a drink(1beer and water) when waitress came back with those we ordered an appetizer nachos(gluten-free) once we got those it was close to the 40 minute mark (we ordered our meals (pizza and salmon meal (gluten-free) we waited Another 15/20 minutes The waitress questioned management where our food was., 10 minutes later she finally brought it over. Food was not bad . The manager offered a free dessert but at that point I was sick. There was clearly cross contamination. And I had to throw away the 1/2 of a 24$ salmon plate I didn’t eat because I couldn’t risk being”glutened” a second time..

Very crowded and noisy on a Friday evening.
The windows were open to the side walk outside.
Kids playing in and out of the restaurant.
Spacing from the other patrons was minimal.

Excellent! It was the 1st time my family and I went out since March. We asked to be seated next to the windows and when we showed up our table was right at the open window!! My husband felt comfortable dining there. I was more than happy with my experience! The staff made us feel very comfortable (and we had 4 kids with us)!!!

Food was ok this time. Usually meet up with a friend and drinks and food are great, but this time it was just ok. Pricey for what we got. They never ask for my phone number for points and I forgot. I wish that would be one of the first questions they ask you.
