We ate in the Tavern for a late lunch. First time here. Great menu options. Quaint atmosphere. My husband said it was the best pecan pie he ever ate! Wonderful service. Highly recommend reservations for evening hours.

The place to go for French Onion Soup! Salads are always fresh and the chicken is yummy! We visit at least 2-4 times a month for lunch or dinner.We love the downstairs pub for the atmosphere and the food.
