I stopped into Tavern on the Square to grab a quick bite to eat and a beer for lunch during a long day of skiing. All I can say is, "Wow, what a great experience!" Tyler, the bartender gives the best recommendations. The mountain Margarita he made me may have been the best I've ever had in my life! It... More

Not sure what happened here over the last year, but the food has really gone down hill. Ate here twice over the past week with a group of six friends and neither meal was that good. The biggest disappointment was the chili - if you could call it that. It was more of a watery soup with some beans and... More

The best pouting I have ever had. Liked it so much yesterday I returned for a second helping today and it was just as good. Short rib, fontina and morel gravy slathered over excellent fries. Each of the three of us had a salad. The chicken caesar was pretty much what one would expect. The Greek and Cobb salads are... More

Tavern on the Square's service was one of the best during our stay in Vail. They also had a delicious vegan menu as well. Thank you! The Mushroom flatbread and Kennebec fries were amazingly good. However, the real winner was the NOODLE BOWL with scallions, field peas, shiitake mushrooms, tofu & vegetable broth. DELISH! And also substantial, we couldn't finish... More

Derek truly enhanced our visit. He brought the appropriate jokes and epic menu knowledge. The fact that he's a total hottie was just a bonus!

Nestled conveniently within The Arrabelle, just steps away from the Eagle Bahn Gondola, Tavern on the Square's slope-side location is truly unbeatable.
