We went to Tavern to celebrate my Mother’s birthday. We were seated fast and given time to go over menu and ask questions. Amazing food and drinks for the 24.00pp price.

Nice go-to place for good food and nice atmosphere! The chicken in Portuguese sauce was outstanding, as were the scallops. This is our favorite local restaurant.

Trash food. Convoluted menu. Conflicting prices on different menus for the same item. Don’t waste your time. Nasty

Food was tasty however it was cold upon arrival. Sides ordered were forgotten. Understaffed. I'd be willing to try it again on a weekday to see if they were having an off day.

I have in the past but recently had a terrible experience. I come here a lot, even held private events. I requested a lower table because the high top chairs were uncomfortable and I couldn't properly enjoy my meal. I was told everything was reserved. We spend 45mins or more and the table I requested to sit at no one showed. I've been coming here since HS and referred this place to friends but I don't think I'll ever return.

I’ve eaten there three time and this by far was the worse experience ever. The service was super slow and the food was horrible. Authentic Portuguese? I think NOT! The waiter was amazing. We overheard staff arguing in the back. It was so I professional.. I have to say I will not return.

Greeted and seated right away. Given our menus and took our drink order. BTW drinks were very well made. Food came so quickly and I had ordered a dish that I didn’t realize had an ingredient in it I was allergic to. The waitress took the dish back and had a new one made from scratch minus the ingredient I was allergic to. Very accommodating!! Will be returning again for another delicious meal.

we had a very good time with just a small issue. We were a group of five with a noon reservation for brunch. When we got there they tried to seat us at a table for four. All the plates wouldn’t have fit on the table. After speaking with two different people they added another table. The food was very good with large portions. The complementary mimosas, bloody Mary’s and sangria were awesome!
The service was ok. Not very engaging especially when I was told how nice and funny they were, but I guess everyone can have an off day. Will definitely go again.

Although all dishes coming from the kitchen look great, this has become our "go-to" for a terrific burger.
Priced right, cooked perfectly and toppings are only $1 each and generous. And who can resist a $2 ice cream for dessert. Go and enjoy!
