We came here with a total party of 12 for my birthday gig. When we arrived, we seated right away and didn't have to wait for the whole "most of your party needs to be here" in order to get seated (plus!). Since it was our first time here and the name did say tavern, all my friends left their kids home with babysitters. It's ok for older kids, but not for little children, it gets very loud, and there isn't a lot of space at all. If you get there early enough, you can park in their parking lot, if not, head back towards Los Gatos, and park across the hotel, The Cats offers shuttles to and from this lot.
The food was......up and down.....Appetizer firecracker chicken wings: great. Cornbread:amazing. Fried mushrooms and onion strings:very good. Cheese bread and cowboy fries: yummy.
Main course: Tri-tip sandwich: so very very dry. Very. Ribs: dry and with a weird gritty texture not from the rub...=/ Hamburger was ok at best. Pulled pork also very dry. The chicken was pretty good. The loaded potatoes was yum(side dish though..). My whole party was sadly disappointed in the entrees. Pretty weird that the sides and appetizers were so good but the mains were not. And then there's the price, pretty high considering the food quality.
Sadly I will not be back....This place is out of the way too, so it would have needed to be awesome in order for me to want to come back.
Oh and there was a live band but tiny space, only meant to be listened to, not to dance to. So sit and listen type of bar.
