Friendly, comfortable pub setting. Food was surprisingly good. Loved the pulled pork dinner. It was tasty, fries were seasoned perfectly and cole slaw was creamy but not runny. French onion soup was awesome and mozzarella sticks were delicious. Server was friendly and efficient. Great place for above quality pub food.

The reason this is a local joint is because the only other bar bar with food (such as it is) is hidden in the middle of nothing within 10 miles. The food is thrown together without care or pride. Nice outdoor space.

Bartender was off kilter, not sure if he was the owner or not. Had a bunch of bandages on him, maybe wasn't feeling well. Guinness was an OLD keg and tasted like COPPER- and they have NO CLUE how to pour a Guinness at all. They sent a second bartender over who had the personality of a rock. When we... More

The Tavern is large and has plenty of open-air seating in addition to that available inside. They offer a wide variety of food at reasonable prices, and everyone in our group was pleased with their meals. The only downside was that we'd called ahead to get reservations for a large group and, when we arrived, they said they didn't get... More

Decent salads and sandwiches, some apps are a little on the tired side. You're not going here for the food, although they could make more of an effort considering how big and usually empty it is here.

They have very good food, including a pretty decent pizza. The menu is pretty broad with something for everyone. We eat here fairly often when in the area.

Great place to relax, have a cold draft beer, and a bite to eat. Highly recommend the chicken Cesar wrap. Loaded with chicken, fresh lettuce and Cesar dressing and of course Parmesan cheese. Plus it comes with fresh cut French fries. Need I say more? Yes, the pizza. Crispy crust and delicious. Eat one there and take one home.

This was my second time at the Tavern in the Forest. This is a great bar with the best potato skins and really good pizza. I can't remember the bartenders name but they are brothers and both great. I will be back on my next visit to Myrtle Beach

Great place to watch the game, eat lunch, or get a late dinner. Kitchen is usually open till midnight so that can be a plus. They have a beer selection that is pretty good as well.
