Our waitress was exceptional - especially for such a large party! Attentive, personable, and went out of her way to take good pictures of our group!

I have eaten here several times in the past and never had a problem. This time we brought some friends to hopefully enjoy the experience you had in the past. Unfortunately my friend Emile came out ice cold and it took a while for them to bring another meal out he just wanted them to reheat the potatoes and green beans but they redid the whole meal. When his second meal came out we had all finished eating already. The waitress took forever to bring our second round of drinks also I think she was preoccupied with other things.

This is a fun sports bar with dining tables surrounding it. There is an extensive menu with something for everyone, from vegan to omnivore. The portions are sizable and the food was well prepared and tasty. Great value.

Brought some international students to try American food. It was ok, the amount of broccoli vs chicken on the General Tsao was heavy on the broccoli and light on the amount of chicken. They were impressed with the portions but not the flavors. I got the steak and avocado, it was fine but I was never asked how I wanted my steak cooked.
Overall it was an ok experience, by far not my favorite visit to Tavern.

The prices where reasonable but the customer service was lacking. We sat next to a group of about 8 people and they were super loud. We specifically asked for a quite booth because we were dinning with a 3 months baby.

Service is always subpar at best , most recent was for brunch and the service was awful. The server never cleared our empty plates until asked and became argumentative . The server brought another tables dirty plates to our table, stacked them on our plates on our table, very unsanitary. Kudos to the hosts and the brunch buffet was great.

Good variety of Food and Drink. Plenty of seating. Don't sit near the door on a cold day. The high level booths along the backside of the bar are flimsy and you can feel every movement of the person sitting behind you. If there is an active child there it can be annoying at times.
Usually hit the Brunch Buffet on Sunday's great choices there and always good.

Waiter came over for drink and food order but that was it. Never asked how our food was and I needed something the whole dinner but he never came back by. He placed the check at our table the second i put my fork down to finish eating. He never asked if we wanted dessert which we did. As soon as we finished the dessert he ran over with the check again. I felt very rushed and he wasn’t good at all. Very disappointed because I come a lot

Great buffet... it would be good if there was a bigger variety of fresh fruit. They offer melon, but it is difficult to scoop as the pieces are pretty large. A mixture of berries would be a good option....

Good value but not inexpensive. All dishes very taste. Desserts were excellent. Very open so a bit louder so would not plan quiet conversation. All in all, fun place to go - would definitely return.

Very good beer list and menu to accommodate varied taste buds (including the vegans) in our party of five. Server may have been new (he seemed nervous), but he did an excellent job. I like when a server is attentive without being intrusive. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves.

Too large of a facility, staff are unable to keep up with capacity. Food was cold to touch after waiting nearly 40 minutes for meal. Entire seating are strait in was freezing from customers entering & exiting. Food sent back at all tables around us.

Saturday night, after-movie crowd so it was very busy but we had a reservation and were seated in a booth very quickly. The waitress made sure we had water and our drink orders arrived promptly despite a crowded bar scene. Wide screen TVs at every angle and the waitress obliged our request to change one of them in our view to an NFL game. Bang bang broccoli appetizer was a spicy delight that brought the heat and our burgers were very good as well, however my side of mac and cheese was just ordinary. Side sauces like BBQ honey mustard were yummy. Huge menu of beer and IPA selections with some local favorites and the sangria options were refreshing. We will be back again!

I went to brunch on New Years day with family and my cousins showed up without a reservation but the staff was accommodating in seating them right next to us. We appreciated that a lot. The food was delicious and our waitress was amazing. Happy New Years

Server told us the omelet of the day included feta so my friend ordered it. When it came the omelet had goat cheese which she has an allergy to. He had listed it incorrectly at the start. Then we had to bring our own coffee mugs to the bar to be refilled since he didn’t come back for refills. The food was plentiful but not high quality. A younger work force spent time huddled together in a corner instead of making rounds. My other friend ordered omelette with sausage mushroom and spinach and was brought out with just sausage. I Would not return for brunch.
