    Food was okay, but too pricey for what you get. Ordered the crab cake and it was cold, the sliders we ordered were practically raw. However the waitress was great.

    Don’t order the porterhouse, very fatty and kitchen does not know temperature. We ordered medium and it was rare to raw. The steak is for 2 and when we tried to eat it it was so raw it looked offensive on the plate. We sent filet portion back for much needed cooking and as usual it came back over cooked. We left the balance to continue to cook on the plate but even after eating the vegetables it was still too rare. Server did offer to get us something else but we had lost our appetite. Manager was sympathetic to the situation and offered us a discount on the 57.00 steak. I was unhappy when we received the check and saw the 8.50 discount. I did order a cosmopolitan which was very well made, and the restaurant has a unique feel but our dining experience was ruined with the lack of experience cooking a large porterhouse for 2.

    The tavern was a major disappointment. The food was over priced,m with small portions. Three different servers apologized for the lack of Wi-Fi, but no one seemed interested in solving the problem. We also waited almost 10 minutes to be served. All in all, seems like a tourist trap for folks visiting Coronado.

    I came here on my birthday, and the ladies working there were really nice. They even gave me a free dessert for my birthday. It was super delicious. The pot pie was a little bland, but a bit of salt took care of that. Overall, I really enjoyed my time there. I would love to visit again.

    The service is exceptional! I love the ambience of this place! It’s casual and comfortable and also very unique. The food is delicious! The servings are quite small and the prices are not inexpensive. But overall it’s well worth it! It was our anniversary and our server brought us each a glass of champagne on the house. Very nice!

    The service was good and the food was good but serving size was small for the price. Although we are on Coronado island so wasn’t sure what to expect. I would recommend the place as it wa overall a positive dining experience.

    Consistently good! Food is well prepared and presented. Ingredients are fresh. Prices are moderate. Desserts are great, particularly the iron skillet chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream. Cocktails are notable. Specifically the "Ginger and Sage" made with Malahat rum (distilled right here in San Diego) is outstanding! Right now, probably the best restaurant in Coronado.

    This was our 2nd visit there. All the times we have visited Coronado we have never been here. It was fabulous. The food was creative, not bar food you’d think of as fried. Anything but that. I had the chicken pot pie both times. The roasted beet salad. My husband had the salmon one time and the hamburger the second time. Both he said were great. This is a much. Good beer and wine selection. And it appeared to have some good mixed drinks as well. You wont regret your visit here. Make a reservation. You do have to give a credit card…which was no problem. Both visits I made reservations a day ahead. Wish they were in the Phoenix area. We’d be regulars.

    Delish! We really enjoyed our dinner and the service was exceptional. I believe our server was Glen and he was fun, friendly and efficient. The tomato basil soup was quite flavorful and the cheese bites were yum. The fish & chips was spectacular and the salmon fresh and tasty. It was fun sitting outside watching the foot traffic. This will for sure be a repeat!
