Thank you for choosing the Tavern for your holiday meal. You have to have big portions on thanksgiving so we cover seconds. Thanks again for choosing us.

Probably one of the best, if not the best, restaurants along the Main street from Middletown. Traditional American cooking. Wide menu with consistent dishes. American beer and wines mainly American also.
