Five us met at the Tavern for supper. The sandwiches were all plentiful, fresh and good tasting. The location was easy to find. We did have to get the OK from the Mgr to get a round table.

A decent experience here. The decor is nothing special and the service is fine, but the food is pretty good. If you get a salad, you must try their house special creamy parmesan dressing: it is just amazing! So tasty! Their pepperoni rolls are great as an appetizer and the pasta is tasty and plentiful!

We stayed in Des Moines for the weekend and decided to try the local pizza. Tavern has excellent pizza. The thin crust, toppings, and sauce are excellent. We ordered ours with extra cheese because we observed the pizzas at the tables near us and decided we like more cheese than the normal amount at Tavern. It actually had plenty of cheese when we ordered extra which was great because sometimes even when ordering extra at places, it still is kind of light. Not the case here, plenty of cheese with the extra cheese order. We will definitely be going back next time we are in Des Moines. We also tried F & O the same weekend, and we would prefer Tavern 100% of the time. We liked that they have ice cream treats too, so you can get dessert! Also, our server was really friendly and on top of things.

Average quality pizza is over priced. West side has decent service, Army Post location has SLOW service.
