Nice place to see a game Aug 23, 2009
The Tavern was the bar of choice for me and my fellow University of Wisconsin alumni who had transplanted down to Austin. At least it became the bar of choice once our preferred sports bar downtown closed its doors. The Tavern is a pretty good place to enjoy a drink, have some bar food, and watch a game. It becomes a bit hard to do all of that on big game days, such as anytime they play football as Seating is very limited and the Tavern plays host to various alumni groups, not to mention those who just want to watch the hometown Longhorns.

The food is typical of what you'd expect at a bar. The burgers are good, there are plenty of fried food options, appetizers, etc. Tastes good by bar food standards. Probably better floor plans at other bars for watching games, but the food is good and reasonably priced. It's also got a rustic feel to it which adds a bit to its charm.

Parking for the Tavern is extremely limited. Again, the bar tends to get crowded on weekends in the fall with football fans. Be prepared to park and walk a ways.

The picture I have attached was a sign in the room upstairs with the pool table that made me laugh.

Harriet just took a picture of a "HIppies use Side Door" sign at a place I just took her to here in Fort Lauderdale on Monday. Too funny.

The Tavern

Nice old rustic tavern looking building. Inside has a splash of sport bar mixed into the d├ęcor.

The Buffalo Chicken Sandwich was great. A medium spice on the Buffalo scale. Nice fries.

The Tavern is best known for their Burgers.
