    Taco salad and Mac and cheese is amazing! Really cool bar! My favorite in downtown. Just wish the staff was friendlier... I've had bad experience with them every time I go... But the food is worth it

    This "Cheers"-like downtown neighborhood favorite offers a killer Wing Sandwich and $4 Dirty Dusty drink special (shot of Jack and a can of PBR.) Head upstairs for sweet arse live shows on weekends.

    Make sure you order the City Tavern Burger w/ Cheddar, Jalapenos and Bacon. Substitute fried for a side of mac and cheese. Oh... You're welcome.

    Great place to enjoy your favorite beverage, meet interesting people, and people watch from the sidewalk patio. I've had their burgers, mac & cheese, and both were good. The City Tavern is centrally

    There’s plenty of live music, and on Wednesday, sit in on their Home Sessions, when the unplugged, hometown artists showcase their talent.

    Great local beer selection. They do tend to over-serve the college kids though.

    Worse service I've gotten in a long time. I'm not a regular and it took forever just to get a drink while sitting at the bar. Only good thing was the food that took 30 minutes for 2 appetizers.

    Since you are here. You should try a "Dirty Dusty" or a "Miley Cyrus". Both go hand and hand.
