    Tavern burger with Red Onion Marmalade and greens (salad) is good. Friendly service and a good selection of beers.

    Occupying the former Jim Gould, Big Grove Tavern focuses on locally-sourced food and drinks. Terrific house-seasoned popcorn, extensive beer menu, and attentive staff makes Big Grove a necessary stop!

    The tater tots are AMAZING. Probably some of the best food I've ever ate. I can see what the hype was about on South Park regarding the creme fraiche.

    Great egg sandwich at brunch on weekends, but be careful! The yolk will jump out and you'll end up wearing it. Take the toast off and break the yolk before you bite.

    The burger w/ a fried egg was pretty good, and the bread pudding was decadent and delicious

    Pork tenderloin was incredible... and this is coming from a girl who grew up on a pork farm.

    The chef has an aversion to sauces. There was no gravy on the poutine, no blue cheese on the black & bleu burger and no dressing on the salad.

    Don't be fooled by the "tavern" in the name... this is fine dining food worth the price.

    Avoid the green beans. Undercooked, too much lemon, and the beans themselves are old and wrinkled!
