This is a great place on game days since they have NFL Sunday Ticket. I went in for the brunch buffet and they were very accommodating with seating me near the TV with my game. The atmosphere is fun cause the fans really get into the

My boyfriend and I went to the Tavern tonight and it was so bad that we felt the need to write this immediately upon returning home. We went at about 8:30 on Friday night, the place was packed and we thought we were in for some good food.

Pros: location

Cons: extremely rude staff

I got seated and waited twenty minutes for a server to come. No drink order, no dinner order... it's clear that they're certainly not hurting for business, and certainly had no interest in mine.\r
Maybe they were distracted because it was

Pros: Uh, busy? Full of people?

Cons: No service, and thus no way to rate the food or the drink. Loud.

.

Went there for the first and last time with an out of town guest. Music was insipid and loud, so we asked for a quiet table, were shown to one at the back of the restaurant, and still had to yell at each other. The waitress was nice and

Pros: Friendly and attentive waitress, ok decor in a bland, corporate sort of way

Cons: Noisy, below average food, arrogant manager, and rodents

I must be a masochist. That is the only reason I can explain going back to the Tavern after two terrible experiences with them. The Tavern continued its streak with a third flop - no more! \r

I have just returned to work after eating lunch at The Tavern. This was pretty much the worst service I"ve ever experienced. I sat in the side of The Tavern which is mostly empty during lunch hours (there isn't anyone working at the bar

I guess if you're desperate for a bar and have to have it right in the middle of central sqaure and don't want to go to one of the pubs, then this is a fine choice. The food is typical bar food burgers and wings, though they now and then

Tavern is a great place to go for a beer with friends and/or to watch a game... but that's about it. The food is so-so at best and overpriced for the quality. I will recommend the spinach and artichoke dip as well as sweet potato fries

Okay, brunch buffets...usually not so good, everything tastes the same, yadda, yadda, yadda. Not the case at The Tavern in the Square. Fresh, made to order omlette's that they serve to you at your table, green salads, eggs, meats, 3 kinds
