Reservations are for the steakhouse dining, outdoor terrace, or now you can reserve a spot at our bar. Reservations are required.

From hanging glass beads to architectural artifacts and an original Brunswick bar painted in gold and turquoise, this is clearly not your father's steakhouse. The Tavern's menu features USDA prime beef, Australian Wagyu, organically raised Uruguayan beef, and organic free-range chicken, diver-caught Maine sea scallops, assorted fresh fish, cold water Rock Lobster Tails, and in season: oysters from both coasts, the Alaskan king salmon run, live Maryland soft shell crabs, morels, chanterelles, and porcini from hunters in Oregon and Washington, and fresh produce from local county farms. An award-winning wine list featuring over 1,200 selections, a great wine by the glass assortment, and an unusually well-stocked bar round out the Tavern's beverage program.

    I can’t remember having four courses that were all excellent. The oysters were fresh, the onion soup traditional, the lobster ravioli rich and savory, and the tiramisu divine. It’s nice to have a four star restaurant in your our town.

    Great dinner. Everyone was courteous and professional and provided excellent service. Our server Sydney was wonderful. The sommelier did very good job as well. The steaks were cooked perfectly exactly as ordered. The desserts were good but the choices were pretty standard fare and could use some more exciting options than what were offered.

    Everything was great, wish we would have realized they didn't have any seats for little ones. Received a call a little later (10 min before reservation) than would have been possible to change venue or make arrangements. This however was a small issue, and 10/10 would go back again.

    We were so excited to see the Tavern re-opened. We were even more excited to see that foie gras was added to the menu. Unfortunately, it was not the foie gras we remembered they used to serve, but a pate. Our server assured us that this is what they always had but that isn’t true. It was still delicious but we were expecting the real thing (sorry PETA). Other than that, the wine list Is outstanding and the two bottles we ordered were fantastic. The steaks were cooked to perfection and we enjoyed the experience very much.

    We’ve been dining at The Tavern since we were little kids back when it was mahogany wood, private booths and crisp white tablecloths. As the restaurant transformed over the years as we grew up its always felt like home. Absolutely our families favorite celebratory spot. Happy it’s back open and felt just as magical as always. The food was incredible and the staff even made me an Amy’s martini by request even though it’s no longer on the menu. The best service and staff around. Look no further for cocktails with friends or a special celebratory dinner out.

    Glad to revisit Tavern after re-opening. I ask the question - where else do you go locally for this type of food and wine list? Hard to beat. The only thing that kept me me from 5 stars was the steak prices. We all know prices have soared. I think it may be a lot more difficult to sustain regular repeat customers at that level. At $79 for a 12 oz prime NY, it was not up there with the best I've had, very good, not great.

    So happy the Tavern is back open! Everything was delicious and the service was great. It was nice to see the former staff pre-COVID was back. I wish they brought the wild rice back but the new one-bite potatoes were a great side. Ordered a lava cake for dessert and was given flourless chocolate cake instead....not sure why. Still good.

    Food was good and well prepared, and service was professional and helpful. Decor is a bit different and a bit dated, but if you can get past that, this is a comfortable neighborhood-type steakhouse that is good for a business dinner or quiet night out, and the location makes it pretty convenient to the Metra station, etc.
