So excited to be back with colleagues. Service was amazing- very patient with our group. Food was great- I enjoyed the crab sliders with fries and colleagues food all looked great. Server kept us in iced tea and sodas the whole time. We felt so welcome and enjoyed the covered deck ambiance
Greeted by friendly hostess. Sat outside on upper balcony with nice view of downtown. Spinach crab dip was delicious. Lemon drop martini was very good. Cheeseburger was good not great but good. Waiter was friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back. Loved the great and easy parking!
Nice location, good food and service.
Great food, great service
We had a lovely family dinner on the patio at Tavern on South. Our waitress, Mara, suggested great menu items and a delicious bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. Mara was kind and attentive to our table and made the experience even better. We will definitely be back!
Awesome views from the upper deck. Great service. Food was good as well.
The portions where to small for the prices. I got the bacon meatloaf and a table spoon of potatoes. And hard green beans..
Good service, nice atmosphere. Food was subpar.
The type of experience that makes you never come back
Had reservations and got there with tables available but was still sat in the bar section.. when asked if we could switch we were told those tables are reserved.. steak was salty but the server was nice I guess. Just a bad vibe
Everything about the place is just average.
Fish and Chips is delicious!!! Highly recommend.
We had a very nice experience other than when we came in they wanted to sit us by the door. There were a bunch of open tables but were told they were reserved. We sat at the corner of the bar and when we left 90 minutes later - maybe two of those tables had people. A bit puzzling but we had a great experience and dinner at the bar
The restaurant was right behind our hotel and offered outdoor seating which is why we chose it. The ambience and the fact they offered outdoor seating was great. We got there early so we’re a little disappointed our service was a little slow. They were friendly though. They didn’t have many options for kids meal, but we understand it’s a tavern and kids aren’t there top priority. My burger was rather dry and bland. My husband enjoyed his meatloaf and cheesecake.
Excellent service. Good solid wine selections at a decent price and nice menu with a mix of different offerings.
This was a phenomenal experience! Everyone was great the food OMG!
The restaurant was very accommodating with our last minute dinner reservation for a large group - provided us with a private room. Thank you
Was able to make same day reservations. Waitress was helpful with making a decision. I enjoyed my time
Appetizer came out with dinner and everything was cold. With so many other options downtown I would choose someplace else.
It was a great place for a quick casual bite to eat. The waitress was very nice and the service was very good.
Great service and very convenient pre-game stop. The cobb salad was fresh and somewhat surprisingly good.
Meh. Nothing to write home about. Wine in a plastic cup? Cold mashed potatoes. Good steak and nice grilled asparagus. Son liked his bison burger a lot. Wouldn't bother going again.
Excellent foos. Loved eating on the patio
Always excellent - my go to place downtown for any purpose
They need more help- our waitress was overworked. (But she was great)
Was not wowed by my salmon sandwich. The bun was basic as was the flavor. The tater tots were perfectly crispy and not greasy.
We went for lunch on a Saturday and were immediately turned off my the attendant in the parking lot who made it clear that he would much rather sell a parking spot than allow us to park and go to the restaurant.
The food was good but they were serving beverages out of 12 oz disposable plastic cups so we had to keep asking for refills.
We had a really loud table next to us during March Madness that, unfortunately, negatively skewed our experience. Food was good, however, and the location is great if you are seeing a game at Lucas Oil.
The service was terrible, we only saw our waitress a few times....to order and to get our bill. The restaurant had a special menu the day we were there (unknown ahead of time), and while the food options were fine, there were only 2 "special" cocktails offered, and I was refused to order anything different. The salad I ordered lacked any flavor, and the vinaigrette that came on the side was all oil. On the positive side, the fish and chips was delicious!
The location was wonderful, as we were in from out of town for the NCAA Tournament. Because of the terrible service, and the lackluster food, I do not recommend this restaurant.
The food was cold and the service was also really slow. We did not know that there was a special menu that night so we could not order what we planned too. Also some of the drinks were flat and made wrong.
Our fish was not done. Service was good. It was empty when we arrived and our server was a bit over attentive and then we had trouble getting our check because she was so busy. She was very pleasant.
Wonderful lunch! Heated deck is amazing venue! So nice to get out and feel safe in a pandemic! Professional friendly service with amazing lunch! Fish and chips were beautifully presented and generous serving. Try the tiramisu! Wow- wonderful finish to a great meal!
Great place. Delicious meal and friendly staff. Would definitely go again.
The quality of the NY Strip was poor, and the price for that value was disappointing.
Great place to go to have good food and relay.
Had a very good Valentines Dinner. Very good service and food!
For a restaurant with Tavern in their name they were out of almost every liquor or beer that was ordered. I ordered a tenderloin, one of their specialties. The sandwich and fries were lukewarm at best and the tenderloin was so thin and over cooked that it had no taste other than the burned breading.
Nice restaurant off the beaten path from the heart of downtown. We stayed at the Marriott and walked about 10 minutes to this restaurant. It was pretty empty, but another table or two came in as we were finishing up. Tables were spaced out and had reserved signs on them for Open Table folks. My husband and I split the Mac & Cheese and a burger. Both were really good. The Mac & Cheese seemed small when we got it, but it was filling, so glad it wasn't huge. Burger was pretty large. Service was exceptional as well. Restaurants at 50% capacity, so we got pretty individual attention.
Great location for a date or celebration!! Staff was great and food was amazing ❤️❤️❤️
