We ate here last night and tonight - couldn't recommend the place more highly. Friendly and efficient hosts, Erika (we think!) was super helpful and made us feel so comfortable. The first night we both had steak (steak and prawn, steak and Morton bay bug) and both meals were up with the best we have had anywhere in a long... More

We celebrated our 48th Wedding Anniversary with dinner at the Tavern with one other couple. It was very busy with a big group, so they placed us at a table that wasn't so noisy. In spite of the number of people they were serving we did not have to wait very long. The food was beautiful, the wine was too.... More

While staying at Marion bay we ate at the tavern twice. Great pizza for lunch one day and great Friday night dinner. Fantastic Family friendly service (activity book and crayons) and delicious food- the fish of the day (lobster and smoked porterhouse) was memorable and mouth watering 👍🏻 Very accomodating with food allergies.

After a day out walking or hiking in all that fresh air you'll feel like a good meal to end the day. Or to cut it in half with a great lunch. Either way, this is the place to drop in for some very good grub. If you can't decide between seafood or pizza, you can have both in one... More

Had not visited here since the Tavern was first opened many years ago. The day we visited was very quiet with weather keeping visitors at bay. Friendly staff who provided good service.Menu was quite satisfactory although we were surprised at the small variety of fish meals given the location. Quality and prices were satisfactory and would recommend as a good... More

Delicious, fresh ingredients in generously sized serves. A terrific wine menu - a roll call of some of SA's best wineries, but reasonably priced. Friendly service and accommodating to families. Extremely happy with vegetarian pasta made on request.

Enjoyed our meals but the meals took along time to come out & the kitchen appeared quite stressful ( you can see the area from your seats). Pizzas were excellent.
