Amazing historic restaurant. The prices are a little high, however, you can share a plate by adding $10 and that will include another side and salad to share. Very friendly service.

The Tavern is so historic. The food is amazing. An experienced staff that handled our party of 10 with ease so we could make a 7:30 show at the Barter Theatre. I encourage you to go hungry. Portions are plentiful.

Most of the dishes would be plenty to share - if you ordered an extra salad and/or another side. However, according to the menu - there is a $10 share fee per plate / which I did not appreciate. My wife and I also share at... More
