Ordered a ruben. Maybe out of sauerkraut but substituted cold slaw instead hoping I would not notice. I noticed but did not have the time to send it back. Way too expensive to pull stuff like this.

You know it's a local favorite when you consistently run into people you know. It's convenient for us, and we're there at least once a month. Friendly staff, good food - my favorite, though, is the bread and oil they bring before our meals arrive.

My wife and I have given the Tavern many tries, but the vast majority of our meals were poor. We continued going, but mostly because of the wait-staff. The bartenders and waitresses are excellent and very pleasant unlike the two owners.

The bertenders, Devin and Jackie, are so attentive and friendly. They made our visit to this pub a very special experience. They make the customers feel like this pub is their hometown pub.

The restaurant and bar is quaint and comfortable. There are plenty of choices on the menu and everything is delicious! If the bar is full, there's another one upstairs!
