Myself and friends met here recently after work. The happy hour prices are great and the quick bites were average. We sat at the bar which had a slightly sour smell. The staff was very friendly and is probably the only reason we stayed ....More

dined here for lunch. Nothing on the menu really jumped out at me. Big dinning room, I imagine they have a great bar scene with their large bar. Friendly service. Would try elsewhere before returning.

Probably not necessary but no downside to reserving. Don't know how busy they are at this time of the year. Hope this helps!

Big City Tavern is reminiscent of the great old taverns of Chicago, New York and Boston. The menu features fresh seafood, steaks, pasta and salads. Our extensive wine list emphasizes California varietals by the glass and bottle. Big City Tavern has a rotating selection of craft and specialty beers on tap and available in bottle. Desserts are all house made and all delicious.

Big City Tavern features high tin ceilings, wood floors and rustic brick walls. Patrons can take their place at our long oak bar or in the comfort of the dining room.
