The beer lines are skunky, we ordered several basic beers - spotted cow, Miller lite, etc. They all had a weird taste like the beer lines were dirty. We sent them back in case it was just something weird like dirty glasses or the first pours of the night, but no luck.

We left without ordering dinner and went somewhere else, if the beer was that gross what would the food be like?

Service wasn’t any better. We asked for low top seating to accommodate a disability that makes it difficult to get on/off the taller chairs and were flat out denied because they only low top they had was for 8 and we only had 5.

They also don’t seem to have a grasp on their table service. When we got there the first person didn’t know about the reservation, the first server that came to the table asked if we knew what we wanted to drink and when we said yes they said someone would come take our order shortly then - super weird, why ask them not take our order?

The whole experience was bizarre and underwhelming.

VanEtten, I am Jack Owner & GM of Tavern. Just wanted to apologize that your experience wasn't up to par. Myself and the managers have used this unfortunate situation as a training and learning moment to help us improve.

Came for DD and the food was ok. Had the chicken parm and it was overcooked. Cheesecake was delicious as well as their garlic bread. Our female server was a little lacking but another gentleman took care of us much better. We believe he was the manager possibly and he was AWESOME!! Actually held a conversation with us. Talked about the hard work he was doing having to clean up after some inconsiderate college kids who have their tuition paid for by mommy and daddy, and left a HUGE mess. (Our words not his) He just told us it's his job and was happy to even have people in there. He was great and deserves a raise for the crap he put up with!!

We will come again as he made the experience enjoyable and intend on trying some burgers next time.

They were open, but only for food. Not their fault, it’s because COVID-19 sucks.
