Customers Love Tavern

"We really liked the decor and the atmosphere of the place before we even sat down. We were seated outside, which we really liked. We had the sliders, the grilled cheese sampler, and pints of beer.

We felt like we hit the lottery of date night places! Food is fantastic, huge selection of beers, wait staff was really friendly. We have been back with our kids on a few occasions and they enjoyed it too. It is so nice to have a fun, cool place here!"

First visit: Great smokey ribs. Big portions. VERY friendly service. Loud, fun atmosphere. Looks like a fun place to gather with friends for drinks. Looking forward to a second visit.

Back When Tavern Was Just An Egg

Back When Tavern Was Just An Egg


I was there from the beginning – from the first two-by-four in the remodeling. This was before there were beer taps or a back bar with Wild Turkey or Old Crow, or a jukebox which would play the Beatles' "Blackbird" which is my theme song.

I found the Tavern when I was looking for a place to hang out with my flying buddies. And there it was. I saw what the workmen were doing, and I said to myself, Orson, old bean, I think these humans are onto something. This could be a great Pub for us to flock to.

Back during the construction, I perched in the rafters making sure the bar had enough taps and there was an outdoor area which could be named after me. I helped the workmen by marking what needed to done with white markers. I also liked to perch on the Tavern sign. I looked so hot, they made me part of the logo.

Every once in while, if you are lounging outside on the patio, look up in the sky. You might see me doing a flyby with my little chickies to show them how cool their old man looks on the Tavern logo.
