DISH FROM DINERS: “The dining room is classy, yet casual. They serve classic Kentucky cuisine – and it is downright delicious. Don’t forget to have a serving – or two, maybe three, ha! – of the spoon bread. It is complimentary and absolutely delicious.” And, “The Tavern is likely the nicest restaurant in Berea. Prices are fair. The steak was great. The fried green tomato wedges came highly recommended and I would order them again.”
