Go early to get a warm spot near the fireplace. Be prepared for somewhat slow service. Pleasant atmosphere. Many TVs for sports.

We were staying at the hotel, so selected the Tavern more for convenience than for any other reason. We were very happy we did. Food was excellent. Being from the midwest we always go for seafood when in an area that offers more fresh seafood....More

We've always loved the food here, and talk it up to our guests. What a letdown tonight with guests. I made the mistake of choosing the buffet. The salad tasted like chemicals, the scallops were mushy and tasteless, and the ribs that used to be...More

While the wait staff was great and attentive, the food service was slow. Ordered a burger one evening and it came over cooked and without some of the condiments.
