Came here on a lunch break to watch some soccer and was pleasantly surprised. 2 for 1 drink specials, a happy hour food menu, and friendly staff. The ambiance is okay (a few tables line the back wall and a few tables outside the main entrance...your typical bar setup). They have plenty of beers on tap, and they are ice cold. Bueno!
Great little local pub/sports bar with decent beer selection, surprisingly great burgers, and amazing happy hour deals! Add to that a clientelle with plenty of character and it's win-win. They even do a house-made lemoncello! If only it were a little closer to my front door.
I really want to give this place 5 stars because I love it. Happy Hour EVERY DAY from Noon to 7pm during which you can get 2 on-tap beers for $6. Daily specials after 7pm. The food is awesome. Service is great. But the management needs help. They don't know how to schedule (2 servers before 5pm on a Friday), and when they are short handed in a high volume situation, the mafia-looking manager scowls at the servers and criticizes and MIGHT help by closing out a check. Behavior which I believe shouldn't be allowed in a public area. Bottom line, great place. Deserves 5 stars, but I can't give it that until it's under new management.
The best, and I honestly mean The Best hamburgers and bar food in the Valley. When I have friends and family in from out of town I always take them here. The prices are great and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Not too crowded and not too noisy- just right. Overall, 5 star experience, Thanks again for the great service!
I really like this place. It's a simple bar, but the staff are really nice, the food is surprisingly fantastic, and the drinks are good. Service can be a little slow because they have a small staff, so don't go here if you're in a rush. It's a place to go to, sit down, drink and eat, and relax. I've had their house salad, chicken sandwich, and hamburger - all very good!
11/19/2010 - Went here for the first and last time. As soon as I stepped into the front door...I smelled vomit and urine inside. This place was so full that it took me forever to join my co-workers sitting toward the back. The Laker game was on all the big screens but the staff refused to put the sound higher. There was only one bartender serving drinks all night. She was very apologetic for the slow service and said that the other two people behind the bar weren't helping her at all. French fries that we ordered 2 hours before finally came and they were good. With a full house the men's restroom broke and so everyone had to wait in line to use the women's restroom.
If you are not going here for your lunch hour and have endless hours to spend waiting for your food and mediocre drinks this is the place for you. For a place called "Tavern" you would expect them to serve beers that would be comparable to Father's Office, Laurel Tavern or Daily Pint but they don't even come close. They serve your typical dive bar beers like Newcastle and BudLight but there aren't any beers or food on the menu that you'd crave to come back for. The ambiance and space is nice so 1 star for that.
I went here with my coworkers yesterday for lunch and the place was relatively empty. With our group there were about 15 people total in the place. I ordered a grilled cheese and my coworkers ordered the burgers. After waiting for over an hour they brought out food to half of our table and forgot about the rest of us and when we asked to cancel the other half their excuse was it just got really busy....hello idiots who run the place...it's lunch time! After waiting over an hour I never got my grilled cheese and had to run over to another place to grab something else. Food reviews from my coworkers who received their food was that wasn't spectacular and probably tasted better than it was because they were starving.
