I loved this place as it was within walking distance to my hotel. The beer selection was very good, stacked with local flavors! I came here twice! The mini beef taco was good. I could've eaten a half a dozen! The pork belly tacos were out of this world!! the fries a good compliment! On another visit, I had the... More

Really, what more could you ask of a local joint? I've visited this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The food is real. The salads are fresh....freshness you can taste. I especially like their Bibb Salad, crisp fresh and lightly dressed. The fish and chips are the best in town. Last night I ordered their burger, served with... More

We had the fish tacos and steak tacos as well as the sliders and fries. The food was VERY good. The waitress said to come back soon as they were changing their menu )hence the limited options) so we will definitely come back. Great find and cannot wait to try it again!

I went with a group for dinner. The fish and chips were decent but the battered pork chop on special looked especially good to the point that nearly everyone at the table who ordered something else had regrets. I really hope to visit again when I'm back in Coronado!

We had a wonderful surprise birthday party for 35 people on a Tuesday evening at the Tavern. John the owner was wonderful to work with, he helped advise me on the menu and his staff was amazing. The food was great, the Mac and Cheese were creamy and everyone loved the individual hot servings. The wings were terrific and the... More

Most our food was pretty good. But I was really disappointed that my pork chop dinner did not come as advertised with creamy polenta. That was the main reason I ordered it. Our main issue of the night was the service! It was awful!! Our waitress barely looked at us or spoke to us. We felt like we were intruding... More

I've been here a few times and have enjoyed quite a few things on the menu. The place doesn't stand out and quite frankly it'd be easy to walk right past unless you know it's there. I've never seen it super crowded but that's not due to bad service or food. I recommend this little spot especially if you happen... More

Popped in for an after dinner drink. The place was quiet due to the slow season, but the staff, service and quality of the drinks were very good.

Thank Pam and Larry W
