This is fantastic bar with good food and a friendly staff. They have lots of specials. We like their hamburgers, wings, sandwiches, and pizza. They're priced are great for a being in a tourist area.

My husband and I were there in August and had a great time at the end of tourist season. Just the neighborhood people hanging out on a week night, but they made us feel welcomed. Returned in October with girlfriends. Food is always good. Hours were shortened and the place was pretty quiet. Pizza was killer good.

The Cedar Tavern isn't much to look at from the outside but don't let that stop you. The food is really good and priced reasonably. The staff are always friendly and good at their jobs. One of my favorite lunch spots.

The owner even recognized our family from last year! The baked potato pizza was EVEN BETTER than last time. I just wish we lived close, I'd eat that once a week. SO so so delicious! The kids love it too. This is a dive you must visit!

The dude from Ohio below this review, reviewed the wrong establishment. He reviewed Big Cat Brewing & NOT the Cedar Tavern. The Cedar Tavern does not charge for splitting a meal, they have 10 ice cold beers on tap with many more in bottles, and the food is great.

We ate at some other artsy fartsy place in Cedar that was way too overpriced and then someone told us about this place. I was blown away! That PIZZA though MMMMM.
