I came to eat here with my family and had a great time! It was a perfect place to stop in after a long day of skiing. It's located just at the bottom of the mountain, so we easily stored our skis outside and walked right in. We came in our skiing gear and even though we looked like we could really use a shower, we were treated like celebrities. The service was excellent, and the food really had that "wow" factor. There really is something for everybody on this menu, whether that's a comforting burger, poke bowl, or nachos - and those are literally for everybody! Our nachos came in a giant skillet that took up about half the table. Though the restaurant was clearly bustling, with tables filled and live music playing in the background, we received our food and drinks in a timely manner and had a memorable experience. I will definitely remember The Tavern the next time I am in Vail - which I hope is very soon!!

This is hands down the best Lionshead Village apres ski spot for drinks and snacks in the sun after a big day out on the slopes. The food is delicious and flavorful, but it's the upbeat atmosphere that makes this a hit with friends and families alike. Don't miss the fire pit on the patio or the outdoor bar with heaters! DJs and live music abound in the afternoons, yet it is the bar staff who truly make Tavern so special. Make sure to ask for Matt Devine, Trever or Jimmy when you head towards the bar, as these professionals definitely know how to whip up a cocktail and make for great company, too. My friends and I kept coming back during our stay in Vail because we had so much fun at Tavern (and really good food and drinks!). Highly recommend to all.

Our party of 16 had great food and excellent service
We split up adults and kids into 2 tables and Jacob and Allana were our awesome servers. Wings and flatbreads and chili were our faves.

We had a great experience at this restaurant! We were able to sit down immediately and our server, Jacob, was excellent! He was super friendly, thoughtful, efficient and patient with my family. He catered to all of our needs very quickly and he was very engaging through out the meal and kind with my kids. It was a great experience, easily the best we have had here at the restaurant! We will definitely be coming back!

Good place to go for bar food. The wings were hot and had a decent sauce to them. The hamburger and fries were very good. Service could not be slower and the place was empty. Waited 15 minutes to get a drink order in which is crazy.
