What a nifty little bar. We dined at a cute little outside table & served by energetic, smiling, adorable Alexis. The veggie panini was to die for. A nice view of the river was included. We will be back often... & will ask for Alexis.

Popped into City Tavern to have a drink and what I found was a cool bar. There was live music, plenty of TV's with sports and lots of cold drinks. They also have a pool table and serve food there as well. The staff of City Tavern are just the nicest bunch of people. I can't speak on the food... More

We went for a few beers with friends. The environment is "classic" kind of dark, darts, pool table bar. It is clean and has indoor and outdoor seating. Really surprised by the greek salad with chicken - $12, fresh and good.

Every time I come here it's great! Friendly bar tenders, great atmosphere! Great bands and people. In the middle of downtown so everything is nearby. I look forward to visiting every time I go.

We were downtown, looking to get tix at the local theatre on Tuesday, and have been wanting to try out one of the eateries for lunch. I had already been to the Twisted Vine (see my other rev) for dinner. My hubby was with me this time, so the City Tavern a first for both of us. Excellent bar service,... More
