I have eaten lunch here numerous times and the food and service is always good. Bar food and a bar menu but the wait time is great because many patrons work downtown and have a limited amount of time for lunch

Stopped in for lunch and had the tavern's lunch special of pastrami, large enough sandwich to split. Great setting to have a nice meal.
