Delicious food and a perfect night to enjoy the patio.
Enjoyed a very nice birthday dinner with family! We sat outside and it was a perfect night.
It was a little chilly edge we arrived, but we were seated by the fire and they turned it on for us. I had the swordfish and it was delicious!!
We has the swordfish and elk for entrees this time around. Absolutely perfectly done! Service always excellent, great atmosphere! Drinks superb. Always a good time!!
Loved the roasted duck & kale, excellent food...great service !
The food was excellent. The service was incredible. My only complaint was that the special, at twice the price of a anything else on the menu came as a shock when I got the bill. I typically expect specials to be more expensive then the menu price, but this was wildly out of line and felt like a “gotcha” which left a bad taste after an otherwise fantastic evening.
We chose the outdoor seating and since it was in the evening it was a little cold. They did offer a blanket but we decided not to take it. I feel that they could invest in some outdoor heaters and lighting if they are going to offer outdoor seating in the evenings. Overall the experience was great thought. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent.
Our first time to Vintage Tavern was a huge hit. Lively ambience, and exceptional servers, amazing food, and friendly staff. Will definitely return.
Just bring a sweater it’s super cold in there but Laurie was the best server and the food was fabulous
It was awesome
We ate upstairs, it was quiet and spaced for social distance. Wait staff was very attentive, food (we ordered the fish special) was outstanding. We always enjoy dining at Vintage Tavern.
Went for my wife's birthday. We ordered the tenderloins with broccolini, mashed potatoes and a side of macaroni to share (yes, two starches. lol). The drinks were also superb, I ordered the "cinnamon old fashion" bourbon. Overall, great experience!!
The food was
Came to Vintage Tavern for our anniversary dinner and was not disappointed! Our server was wonderful and attentive without being overbearing. We had the elk which was amazing and paired well with wine we chose. The pecan pie for dessert was there also delicious. We were given a champagne toast to celebrate our anniversary which perfectly topped off the evening.
It was very nice but for a beautiful restaurant, I thought guests and hostess would dress up and not be wearing shorts or spandex. Have more class in a such a beautiful environment.
The duck was cooked to perfection! Brian was a charm and we were very comfortable!
Great service good food awesome tavern, pub, darkwood feel. A little pricey, but great for special occasions. Went to prom and my first wedding anniversary here, lucky enough for it to be the same woman!
Our friend was visiting and wanted to treat us to dinner. Your outdoor dining can’t be best. Andrews cocktails were spot on as well and Brie was very accommodating. Wonderful evening.
Enjoyed the food, and the service. Wish I could remember the names of our wait staff, they went beyond.
Food and service were excellent. Will definetly be back.
Great food. Great service. Will be back for special occasions
The waitress was wonderful as was the food. All together it made for a great night.
We discovered Vintage Tavern about two years ago and it has been our go-to restaurant for date night since. The service, food, and ambience never fail to be absolutely outstanding.
Always enjoyable evening we sat outside and 3 patrons were smoking cigars
when I made the reservation; not long afterwards the restaurant called me to inform my table will be on the second level to ensure I was okay with it. I appreciated the heads up of what to expect. The waitress was awesome, made suggestions cause it to me forever to decide on a short menu, but the combinations in how my meal was prepared or it’s layout was superb. The only thing I didn’t like was the restroom was on the first level and I drank much water and walking those stairs to go cause i had to go was interesting but I was successful. My lady and I enjoyed our time and definitely worth going back.
Tuna was perfect, sangria was awesome, great service. Outdoor seating in the back of the restaurant was really nice with beautiful surroundings.
Great food, ambience, and service! Our favorite!!!
Love this place!
Love the food and atmoshpere at Vintage Tavern. Such a great place for a date night!
Enjoyed our first visit to Vintage Tavern. Celebrated my husband's birthday, and Veda made it a wonderful experience for us. The elk chops and bison steak were both terrific. We cannot wait to dine with VT again.
Very pleased with the food, service, and atmosphere! Would definitely go back!
Great place for special moments. Then again the food and staff makes you want to come back often.
Service was phenomenal. The dishes were not only over the top delicious with so much flavor, but the presentation was stunning!!
The food and service was great! My husband and I enjoyed our date night.
Chandler is the best bartender in the area. This is a great place to eat great waitresses all the help was great
The service was impeccable and the food deliciously prepared. A nice evening.
What a Great meal ! from specialty cocktails ginger Martini , a peach Arnold Palmer and an appetizer ,taste of Southern Goodness, with ham -strawberry jam, devilled eggs , sausage, biscuits, pickles, some kind of chicken salad stuff on a cracker it was all great. Our waiter Andrew read the specials out and the last one he got to was bone in elk tenderloin with a glaze potato's and garlic green beans.... That sounded great so we got that. I added a crab-cake... OH MY what a treat, he asked how we wanted it cooked and I said let the chef decide. this meat had no gamey taste and was better then any steak I have ever had. They were about an inch an half thick. see picture...
we ate outside and it was very nice and Covid safe !
The dinner, service and atmosphere was outstanding as is normal for Vintage.
