We flew into Dallas a little after lunchtime on a Saturday and by the time that we checked into our hotel near the Convention Centre, we were all famished. We ventured into Downtown and decided to try the City Tavern. They have a great selection...More

This use to be my weekend hang out location about eight years ago. I visited it again about six months ago during the day and it was just okay. I heard they are moving to a different location.

I only stop here when passing through Dallas on the Amtrak and I have some time to kill before heading to the airport. 15 minute walk from Union Station and lots of great Texas brews to refresh before continuing my journey.

Especially for those working in the area, the City Tavern is a super place for lunch. It opens at 11 so even those of us with an early lunch can take advantage of the place. Lots of $8 lunch deals from cheeseburgers to salads. You...More

Went to see Miss Marcy and the Texas Sugar Daddy's there. The music was so great and it's such a fun place in a cool downtown location.

During recent visit to Dallas for 2017 Mary Kay Seminar stopped her for a local IPA. Lakewood Hop Trapp IPA was my choice. Nice place to relax and have a brew after a long day with my wife.

Just driving by and noticed the outside seating and decided to go in. Food was good and beer is cold. Good selection and very friendly staff and fellow patrons. I will return to this location again. More menu items to try out.
