Local watering hole, go-to happy hour spot or a hangout for your pals - let's just call it your new favorite gathering spot. The Tavern is anything but a typical resort destination. Inside you'll find fellow phoenicians knocking back local craft beers, celebrating with cocktails after their round of golf, or enjoying polished pub grub with the fam. Enjoy a lively atmosphere for lunch, dinner, and happy hour on the indoor-outdoor bar patio, take in stunning views of the newly designed lush green golf course, or hunker down in one of the comfy booths to watch the big game with buddies. Leave the day (and necktie) behind and just take it easy at The Phoenician Tavern.

The service was terrible. Our waiter only checked on us 1 once. Waited for refills but never got them. Food was wrong. Paid good money to spend a birthday here and was deeply disappointed with everything.

The food was great but our server and anyone that came by our table to deliver food, drinks & dessert, never cleared our dirty plates. Everything just sat there. Even when we moved our plates to the other side of the table as a subtle hint, still no one grabbed anything until we asked them to be taken. Other than that, my husband & I enjoyed the experience.

The rock shrimp pasta did not taste good at all. We were very disappointed in the pasta.
The burgers and the chowder were very good.
The service was excellent.

Horrible service with mediocre food. The noise level is excessive. There were two piano players who were very good but extremely loud. It was impossible to carry on a conversation because of the noise level. With so many wonderful restaurants in town, why settle for such a mediocre restaurant.

The crab sandwich was not what I was expecting. I hoped for lumps of crab meat, instead I received shredded crab, similar texture to the fake crab on sushi rolls.

What brought us to this restaurant was the Saturday night Dueling Pianos show from 8 - 11pm. The food was good as well as a friendly staff, but the Dueling Pianos was soooo much fun! You can request songs and they encourage you to sing along and enjoy yourselves. The singers were awesome and very talented and engaged everyone in the room! Bring your money and make sure you tip them! They work hard for your money and sing 3 hours straight with no breaks!

Happy Hour provided only 2 wines for $5.....Pinot Gris and a Malbec. Not much of a choice. A Grey Goose straight up with olives( Blue Cheese olives not available) was $20 which seems rather steep for a sports bar.
The wait staff was very amenable and did not seem frustrated that we were disappointed with the Happy Hour choices.
We did ask to speak to her supervisor to commend her service, which we did, and then expressed our concern about the Happy Hour choices for wine and the $$$ for Grey Goose. He appreciated our comments.

My wife and I sat at the bar to watch college football. Food was slightly better than regular bar food, ambiance was nice with lots of people around and doors open to the outside, but the best part was the bartender Brian. Great dude who really enjoyed putting drinks together based on ideas that we threw at him and the drinks that he crafted were fantastic. I recommend if you’re staying at the hotel and want to grab a bite and/or drink at a casual but good spot.

We went to The Phoenician Tavern on restaurant week. I use restaurant week as an introduction to restaurants i'm not familiar with. I thought "The Phoenician, this ought to be great". Not so much. Staff was pleasant, not particularly attentive. Food was ok, but not what I'd expect from one of the snazziest resorts in town. Beef was tough, desert was just ok. Glad i spent restaurant week pricing but really disappointed

The entrance was a bit confusing. There is a side stairway but it leads to anlcoked door behind the dueling piano space. Luckily, a staff member was around to open it. We went to the front desk and were seated promptly but it took a while to get our drink order. Once we were approached by the waitress and got our order for drinks in, it took a while to get our drinks - a beer flight, a mule and an iced tea. The restaurant was moderately crowded but not to the point where - like that night - we did not see servers walking around, attending to their tables. We got the beer flight first, then the mule just before the appetizers were served and then the iced tea came after appetizers came. When we ordered, we got the restaurant week specials. The appetizers were amazing (kale-artichoke dip, Nashville fried chicken and pork belly poutine). The main course was ok. The Wagyu tri-tips was very gristly, chewy and wasn't edible. The macaroni the accompanied it was great. We ended up asking for a new order of tri-tips to be cooked medium well and that actually came out way better. I had asked for the Cowboy Burger sauce to be on the side and it came on it. It was cooked well done and was an okay tasting Burger. The fish and chips was actually delightful. It was a bit too breaded, but it was nonetheless good. The chocolate cake was ok. The server was very nice and you can tell she really wanted to help, but there were a lot of gaps in time where we didn't see any servers. I think the price is a bit over-charged for what you're receiving. I would say that this is good if I were staying onsite or if someone wanted to go there, but not a restaurant I would go out of my way to visit again.

Seriously disappointing. New furnishings marginal. Overpriced. Server poorly trained. Been to the old Relics which was comparatively superior. NEVER AGAIN

The dueling pianos are soooo much fun! The food is incredible too. It’s basically gourmet bar food. Also got to meet the manager, Miguel. He’s super nice and outgoing. You can tell he’s hand on with his business.

Had the Players Club Sandwich and it was amazing. Good quality chicken. Sent back the parmesan garlic fries which the server said was their most popular side. Maybe it was because they weren't very busy, but the fries were cold and hard. Had a side salad instead. My husband enjoyed his Smokehouse Burger with tater tots. Said it was well worth the price. Super great service - when I sent back the fries, he came back and said they'd appreciate feedback so they can do better next time.
