For Whoever Is Lonely There Is A Tavern!

...And apparently the east metro was very lonely on a Friday night when my wife and I chose to meet up with some good friends for dinner and drinks and looking to try something new. That new place was The Tavern Grill in Woodbury and the place was packed which is a good thing compared to the establishment that stood before them...

Taking over the defunct Aperitif, I have a feeling that The Tavern Grill is sticking around with the volume of people that they had on just one night. Can the food really be that good? That my friends is about to be answered....

YES, yes it is that good and so good that I'm looking forward to heading back there to try something new on the menu. Our group of four adults and two children ordered the following meals; Our friends ordered the fish tacos and meat loaf while my wife and I ordered the baked sgetti and Philly. Lets break each meal down shall we...

Home Style Grilled Meatloaf - Full of flavor, tender and moist! I would however shy away from adding so much ketchup as the meatloaf itself is good enough by itself.

Baked Spaghetti - A large portion of sgetti with pepperoni, sausage and loads of mozz that had better flavor than some of the local Italian restaurants and it's coming from a place call the Tavern Grill.

Philly - While I personally love my Philly to have shredded red meat, this was still a Philly packed with deliciousness! Most places make their Philly with grilled onions and red or green peppers, but at the Tavern Grill, their doing something different and adding sweet banana peppers instead. The addition of their special cheese sauce and a grilled baguette made this one heck of a Philly!

Fish Tacos - While I didn't taste these, they did look delicious. BIG chunks of cod fillets, shredded cabbage, chili lime sour cream (yum) and citrus salsa, yeah I would try those...

The Tavern Grill is definitely serving up some delicious grub and I can't wait to head back to try some of the other dishes on the menu. You may be wondering about the sides, well my friends, I'll just say this... Make sure you get the loaded mashed, yes mashed, not a baked tater! Usually I take a bite of something for the first time and if it's good, I'll let you know immediately, but this time it came from my wife after she tried the loaded mashed... "Those are awesome!" Yes honey they are and they're alllllll mine..... I shared! :)

Reasonable... Sandwiches are in the lower teens while entree's are a little more. Good size portions as well... Check their website for more info on prices, they're listed...
