Popular with both locals and tourists, The Tavern offers something for everyone. The rustic, historic building is quite possibly the oldest still standing in Abingdon, Virginia. It has served many purposes over the years from stagecoach stop, bank, offices, and now a great restaurant. We've dined alone and also visited for events. Never disappointed. Always delighted. Generous portions. Delicious recipes.... More

I have never been disappointed in the Tavern! The food and ambiance are absolutely fantastic. The owner wanders through the tables, speaking with the guests, and recommending menu items. The stuffed filet is my go to item. Pricey, but fabulous. And get the Creme' Brulee for dessert; it's divine!

This restaurant was on our list while visiting Abingdon because of the history. They are always booked up and we thought our chances were not good. However, we arrived just after they opened at 5 pm and they seated us promptly. the Beef medallion were awesome and my wife's salmon was very good. The atmosphere is great and the wait... More

I've had an excellent dining experience here, but prefer to pop in by myself, eating Wiener Schnitzel at the bar, and drinking great German beers on tap.

Wonderful food, atmosphere and service for the whole family. I have picky eaters in my group and everyone was pleased here! The steak with blue cheese and port wine was one of the best I have ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The Tavern is a old Restaurant but the food very up to date and the owner very nice. He took time to speak to our friend in German and made sure our foot was perfect. We... More

My husband and I had dinner at The Tavern last night. It was our anniversary, so we wanted something special. The Tavern was very busy for a Tuesday, but the food and service were both exemplary. Our server Amanda was friendly, attentive, and professional, making sure we had everything we needed in a timely manner. I had the evening's special... More

Six of us, one a child and the tab was over $300.00. Not a fortune but for that amount, you would probably expect more than average. The Christmas decorations were sparse. Our server was efficient but not friendly. The food was good but not exceptionable. There are so many things they could have done but did not. We will not... More

8 of us went after a matinee play. Not crowded, seated immediately. Had a round of drinks then ordered. 7 meals arrived, had to go to front desk to find info on 8th, even though the owner had walked through twice, didn't know at the time. After some more waiting , others had started eating the 8th dish arrived and... More
