Went w/large group to enjoy food & watch NFC Championship. Wings, as usual, were great. Good service and atmosphere. We can always count on a good time @ the Tavern.

Been there three times now. Food is very good. Prices are reasonable abs portions are good for the price. The service is bad enough that I will not go back.

The food is excellent with a varied menu from appetizers and sandwiches to entrees. Sunday night is very sports-bar noisy, but the booths and chairs are very comfortable, and the staff is really friendly. Don't miss out on a great meal in a fun atmosphere.

Had a great dinner with very attentive service. But this establisment needs to decide if it wants to be a bar or restaurant. Several bar Patton's out of hand with the encouragement of bar and wait staff. I don't want to eat dinner with loud...More

May be the best Wings in NC. First, they are huge. You don't order by the weight either. Good luck trying to eat 10 of these. Second, they are smoked before grilled or fried giving a wonderful base for sauces. Ask to mix some sauces...More
