Tousey House Tavern was better than could be expected. My wife, son and I went for birthday dinner for my wife. We all thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. The halibut was amazing and my wife loved the duck. The server was great with a sunny personality...More

We had the family style fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, slaw, green beans, and a biscuit. It was all excellent! You get 4 delicious pieces of non greasy fried chicken with an incredible an crust. The service is superb!

Great service complimented by wonderful food. The best fried green tomatoes around and the fried chicken entree is worth the extra prep time. Beautiful, historic former attorney’s home is your backdrop for this gem!

Questions like this should go directly to the restaurant. Trip Advisor reviewers would not know the current details. Bit whatever they offer will be good.
