    If you are the kind of person that goes to a bar or restaurant and needs it to be the "best" of something (and "great" is never good enough) then do not come here. This place is for fun, not snobs.

    Built in 1916, the space has housed a grocery, a steak restaurant, and a speakeasy/brothel. These days the Tavern does bustling business with sports fans who enjoy the 50 TV screens and good pub grub.

    If bacon-wrapped wings stuffed with jalapenos sound amazing, then ask for them by their proper name: The Amazing White Wings.
