The food was decent. The restrooms where not. The best part was the waitress. She made up for the mediocre facility

We didn't eat here; we just came for drinks and live music after eating at Brooklyn's next door (see separate review). Neat little cozy place, good drinks, great music. Great atmosphere for chilling and visiting with friends. Just don't get too loud or the locals...More

This was one of the first bars to open in Buda after the city changed the alcohol ordinance. I've been a few times and I love the location, but there are now much better choices in Buda to have a drink and hang out.

Had my surprise party here for my BDay and it was nice. Bartenders were friendly and food was good. Love that it is right on Main St.

Good drinks, good food, good service. It is a good clean bar and food service venue with a clientele just out to have a good time and get something good to eat.

We had early dinner or late lunch. Service was friendly and the food was really good. Great place to stop and crab a beer and snacks while you are shopping. Will definitely return.

The burger is cooked perfectly, to order. The potato salad and coleslaw are delicious. Cecily is a fabulous server & I look forward to being a regular at this casual bar experience. I haven't checked out their outdoor dining and music, but intend to.

The Tavern just gets better. Yes, it is mainly a tavern, but they do serve better bar food than most. Burgers, Reuben sandwiches, fruit platters and cheese platters are exceptional. Beer is well priced and occasionally they have live entertainment. The wait staff is pretty...More
