I stopped for an overnight on Rockford and had a great dinner at Tavern on Clark. Great beer on tap, lovely meal of seared scallops with asparagus risotto. The restaurant makes its own ranch dressing, which is fabulous. Great service and a nice ambience.

One of the best places to hung out and eat in town. I love the atmosphere and people, they always make you feel welcome. My favorite wine there is the white zinfandel.

Pretty darn good. Service was outstanding. Food was good. It seemed that most of it seemed like frozen out of the bag bar food items, which is fine. It was good. Fun atmosphere.

It's locally owned. They also own the Alpine View which is a fantastic breakfast place. This family does a fantastic job and I highly recommend.
