Our party of 4 was not sure about going to a "tavern" for dinner, but this was a great surprise for us. There is plenty of seating, mostly inside, but some outside as well. Service was friendly and the food was delicious.

Our server James was delightful, and we'd go back just to visit with him! But the French onion soup was mediocre, and the peach cobbler was not good. The peaches were obviously canned and hard, and the crust was also hard and not at all...More
