We were not too sure about this place based on other reviews and the fact that NOBODY was there, but we decided to give it a try and both enjoyed our meals. It's an older place with some character; definitely nothing fancy or new looking....More

We never thought of this as a food spot...more like a Charlottesville Brickskellers, with an excellent comprehensive beer list. But we have started ordering dinner too and it's been great. Lots of knockwurst and bratwurst kinds of specials and the Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, S..., and...More

Some dishes are surprisingly good, but I've had two hour lunches at Court Square Tavern because the kitchen and wait staff don't seem to realize that people go back to work after lunch. Some dishes are pretty weird. The chili comes to mind. Beer is...More
