My husband and I were there in August and had a great time at the end of tourist season. Just the neighborhood people hanging out on a week night, but they made us feel welcomed. Returned in October with girlfriends. Food is always good. Hours were shortened and the place was pretty quiet. Pizza was killer good.

The Cedar Tavern isn't much to look at from the outside but don't let that stop you. The food is really good and priced reasonably. The staff are always friendly and good at their jobs. One of my favorite lunch spots.

Friends told us to go here. It was taco Tuesday - good food. A standard north mi bar. Very friendly service. Many options on the menu.

The owner even recognized our family from last year! The baked potato pizza was EVEN BETTER than last time. I just wish we lived close, I'd eat that once a week. SO so so delicious! The kids love it too. This is a dive you must visit!

The dude from Ohio below this review, reviewed the wrong establishment. He reviewed Big Cat Brewing & NOT the Cedar Tavern. The Cedar Tavern does not charge for splitting a meal, they have 10 ice cold beers on tap with many more in bottles, and the food is great.

Great outside seating area. Was filled so we sat inside. Beers ok. Nothing too spectacular. Food fine. Again nothing spectacular. $3 fee to split a meal.

The Cedar Tavern is dark, pretty worn and seems to attract an interesting mix of locals (clearly many of them are hard-core regulars) and out-of-towners (most of whom arrived by motorcycle the day we were there). The mix made the place lively without being loud and really quite pleasant as long as one doesn't need fine china to have a... More
