Nice place to have a beer and some food. The local people are very friendly. The food was good and plenty of beer. I recommend the tavern for a beer or two while in town or just stopping by.

So, this is basically a pub on the outskirts of town, with lots of locals, and lots of screens for sports. It doesn’t hide what it is. But don’t let that put you off; everyone is really open and accepting with a friendly local atmosphere....More

We stopped here for dinner and had a great time. The burgers were juicy and flavorful. The supreme pizza was covered with ingredients. The staff was friendly and helpful. We played a couple games of pool after dinner. Family friendly.
