We have dined here several times and have always been delighted with the meal and service. The food properly prepared and the menus offer an excellent selection. The Taste of Southern Goodness is a great way to start a meal - add pimento cheese. Order this for the table, there is plenty to go around.

The food was delicious; my husband had the elk chops and I had the beef tenderloin. Their Guinness ice cream with Baileys and wafers was also quite tasty. Our server was friendly and super helpful when we realized we were running short on time but still wanted to order dessert.

One of the folks we brought here ordered the elk. Said it was one of the best meals he ever had. It was great that the menu was explained in detail and we all enjoyed the background story on the bottle of wine we ordered.

The duck was fantastic, very tender, with delicious stuffing. The sausage appetizer was also very good, particularly the homemade kimchi it was served with. And always the bread pudding is worth eating even if you are gluten intolerant.
The service was friendly. My only complaint was it took way too long to get our wine

Came for our anniversary. The restaurant ambiance was very inviting and cozy. We sat next to the fireplace on a very cold night. Food was delicious. Must try pimento cheese! Highly recommend! Will have to
Come back during warmer weather and enjoy the back patio seating.

I have dined at Vintage Tavern many times and the experience was fantastic. This time, however, not the case. My family and I were seated upstairs in a very outdated area. Unlike the main dining room that is cozy and has great ambiance especially in the winter time. To get to the restrooms you had to walk through the makeshift service area for the servers. All of this and the meal for 4 of us was over $200. I am not sure I will recommend or return to what was once a favorite of mine.
