A group of 8 of us (4 adults, 4 kids) came in at right around noon on a Thursday. There were only a couple other people there, which was surprising. The staff was friendly, but it was probably 15 minutes before we had drinks, and right around an hour before we received our food. This is a LONG time when... More

The garlic fries were great, bbq sauce was tangy and sweet, and the beer was cold. Would highly recommend the cheese steak, it came on a pretzel bun.

We stopped in after glancing at the menu outside. We didn't realize that they also have a nicer restaurant downstairs so we didn't realize that the menu we were looking at was actually for the restaurant downstairs. But our waitress said we could order from that menu but they just might not be able to do some of the side... More

The patio sits above the kitchen exhaust so sitting outside can be unpleasant. The people watching is great....the food is so average here. My husband loves the sweet potato fries....I usually only get a salad....it's nothing to write home about. I sit and day dream about eating across the street at Embe's while he enjoys his sweet potato fries.

Came in for drinks and an appetizer before the Ghost Tour. There was a loud, obnoxious group when we arrived. The staff did what they could to quiet the group. Once they left, the atmosphere was pleasant. Recommend as a good place for a drink.

Staying at the Desoto Hotel we arrived somewhat late and just decided to eat here. We had a choice and decided to stop in here for dinner. We were presently surprised as the food was very good! The Mac and Cheese was to die for. The Pulled Pork Quesadilla was just as phenomenal. Then we each had a burger, I... More

The Green Street Tavern is located just off the Desoto House lobby and offers a wide variety of lunch and dinner specials. The prices are not bad and the food is very filling and tasty. The tavern offers a good selection of drink options and do make an effort to try making drinks not on the menu. Worth a stop... More

We had lunch and we chose two different soups, an amazing salad and a sandwich. It might have been the best salad I ever ate. Baby spinach, strawberries, mandarin oranges, glazed nuts and a special vinaigrette dressing. The soup was Cream of Bleu Cheese. It was excellent. Just enough cheese, not so much as to overwhelm. Be sure to read... More
