When we were seated on the ground floor on this latest visit, I could not help but to take notice of the rugged bare rock wall at my left elbow and assume it must have weathered the centuries ever since The Tavern opened in 1797....More
Hidden gem that's for sure. The food was delicious, services was outstanding & the history was was there! It was great to sit down and be able to enjoy dinner without loud noises and being able to carry on a conversation without yelling across the...More
In Abingdon to shop, and we decide to try the tavern a highly rated restaurant. We're not disappointed. It's a historic building, with much of the Interior just as it was many years ago. The service was excellent, and the food was above average. My...More
Very historic building. Atmosphere lighting with wonderful fire in the fireplace. We were personally greeted and checked on by the owner several times. There are 3 traditional German dishes on the menu (schnitzel). Our group tried all 3 and all were delicious. The meal began...More
The Tavern is always my fall-back in Abingdon. Make your plans and make a reservation at this hidden Gem. Max and his crew will take good care of you. German-American flare is ever-present and always over the top. Great list of wines and cocktails as...More
Our vendors wantes to take us to the Tavern for dinner. It was not anything to brag about and I was not impressed. The food was ok but very overpriced. The air didn't work, it was dark, and it just wasn't a comfortable atmosphere. I...More

Went for dinner before seeing a play at the Barter Theater. The service was the best we've had anywhere and the food was absolutely delicious. Will definitely return. Have lived here for many years and are just now discovering this dining treasure.
We were looking forward to dining at the Tavern for the first time in many years. We were disappointed. The French onion soup lacked flavor, the chicken and risotto was super salty, very dry chicken and gummy risotto, the special steak was grizzly and overcooked...More

As I recall, the portions weren't particurally large. My wife and I both had a selection from the German dishes and they were great. The management is very friendly and I'm sure that they'd agree to sharing anything. I'd suggest a good appetizer to share and then sharing a dinner.
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
