Description: A small family run 100 year old Tavern with a big heart! We are located adjacent to the Ivoryton Playhouse which makes for a great "date night"! Enjoy a great dinner at the Tavern, then walk a few steps to enjoy one the the Playhouse's professional shows. We are noted for our Great burgers, but we are much more! We always have many fresh daily specials which should appeal to just about anyone's tastes!

Across from the noted Ivoryton stage Theater, the Tavern is an excellent pub, offering sandwiches, salads and an especially impressive array of gourmet hamburgers. The bar is equally impressive. The Tavern decor is tourist-tacky but fun-filled. Wait staff is prompt and helpful. The make-your-own burgers come in three sizes: mini (quarter pounder), medium (half pounder), and big (one pounder) -- great selection of condiments and sides. There are quite a few fixed-menu burgers, all one pounders. I had the one pounder Tex-Mex Burger. For the first time in my gourmand burger eating experience, I had to bring home half my burger in a take-out box! The half of the burger I ate was delicious. The draft beer was cool and sparkling. I whole-heartedly recommend this cafe -- a definite five burger rating!

Wife and I and family have been coming here for past couple of years for breakfasts and dinners, lots of other places too. This is the best burger in the area for flavor and size, even better than the new "boutique" places ... just great! Very good breakfast meats too ... I think it is the quality of the meat they buy. And cooked as ordered. Shrimp salad gets high marks too. They get crowded when there is an Ivoryton Playhouse play next door, btw.

First time this little gem and we will be back. Specials are reasonably priced. The fish and chips was fresh and an ample portion for $13. The petite filet mignon salad was a generous portion of greens and fresh veggies with the filet a top for $14. The wedge salad was 1/2 a lettuce head with lots of bacon, fresh blue cheese and garden ripe tomatoes witha a homemade blue cheese dressing for $6. The burgers are a sit to be seen! They serve three different sizes, from sliders to the 1 lb monster and lots of fun toppings. They range in price but the 1 lb burger is $7.95 with coleslaw, lettuce, tomato and fries. The specialty burgers are $12.95 to $14.95 and require a fork and knife to eat. The meal was excellent and came in at $75 for 5 people with 1 cocktail each. We will definitely make this our go to spot when in the area and if you are there on Saturday check out the Farmers Market. Our waiter said much of the produce used in our meal came fom the local farms featured there.
