The Tavern on the Coast closed and opened under new ownership as Two Left Forks on March 3rd, 2016. Not mush changed in the interior, but the new owners brought in their Executive Chef Rob Hines.

This place reminded you of a restaurant in one of the hotels in Las Vegas. A little over the top, but cold as to décor. Food was very average and over priced. Same with the cocktails and wine list. Not surprised it closed.

My friends and I just happened upon this restaurant. The place looked inviting, as did the menu. The prices were a bit high for a "tavern"/regular night out for dinner but we were comfortable splurging. The hostess was great and talked the food up quite...More
