We were in Vail for 5 day hiking/ anniversary trip. The first day we went for some drinks at the Tavern and Tayler, our bartender made us feel right at home. We came back everyday and had breakfast and lunch and dinner. Food is amazing, service is amazing... And the s'more crack jar- you just have to try it. Thank... More

Stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant with best view in Vail Village and met Tyler Jameson at the bar. We always sit at the bar anywhere we go- always get good service. Asked for a mescal cocktail - surprised me with a mescal mule and enjoying it right now. He gave us a few recommendations for meals and again, didn't disappoint.... More

Absolutely superb food and service were experienced. However, presentation of an "expired" promotional voucher for partial payment, was refused for payment value. These documents indicate on the face that what was paid for the voucher. Although this was for a relatively small amount, it put me and our service provider in an awkward situation. We will not be returning.

Amazing breakfast! We had mimosas and bloody Mary's. The candied bacon in the bloody Mary's was to die for!!!! The lemon ricotta pancakes.... yummy!!!! The atmosphere was just perfect. Olivia's was our server and she was so attentive! Must enjoy food at the Tavern when in Vail!

A nice spot right on the main plaza in Lionshead Village. We stopped for lunch during Oktoberfest and were lucky to get a seat outside where we could watch all the activity. Food was good, we split a goat cheese flatbread and green salad. Service was also very good.

Stopped at the Tavern on the Square for lunch while waiting to check in at our hotel. The view of the gondola and mountains was very nice, particularly on a beautiful Fall day. Lunch itself was good, though far from exceptional. Service was a bit spotty.

We were not guests of The Arrabelle, and so we had to wait for a table. They use a paging app, so we went exploring until a table was available. We were there for a late Sunday breakfast. While they have an incredible buffet, we opted to order from the great selections on the menu. The variety and our selections... More

The Tavern on the Square is situated perhaps in one of the BEST locations in all of Vail (Lionshead bottom of Eagle Bahn Gondola). The location is a big draw and after multiple tries at The Tavern (since February 2016 we have made 10 visits), the food is poor and it is very expensive. On one visit the chicken wings... More

CO5280, Thank you for your honest feedback. I appreciate your specific feedback on some of our menu items. Without this feedback, we cannot grow and develop our menu and service to become better, so thank you. I would agree, we do have an amazing location. Starting now, we have a great happy hour from 3pm-5pm with special prices on house... More

Nestled conveniently within The Arrabelle, just steps away from the Eagle Bahn Gondola, Tavern on the Square's slope-side location is truly unbeatable. With live music nightly during peak season, The Tavern offers a Vail après ski scene second to none complete with mouth-watering food and drink. Having been recently expanded and offering both indoor and outdoor patio seating with stunning views of the mountains and skiers coming off the slopes - this tavern is a unique treat.
