LOVE LOVE LOVE Tavern Blue!! I can’t stop sharing it with friends and family! I’ve brought 20 people so far and won’t stop! I even had my birthday party there! Easily the best Mac in town ❤️ If you ever can request Stephanie as your server! She rocks! Always on top of giving great service and making sure you’re having a great experience. I have never been let down with her or the restaurant!

Pretty good sized bar and grill with some cute swings, mini golf, and some yard games you can play. My wife and I ordered some food. Their food overall is overpriced. Sides are $7.00 same price as most fine dining restaurants. I got the steak burger, with the fries and corn. Burger was decent and the fries and corn are pretty bland/normal. I did get a side of mac and cheese, it was decent. Nothing too exciting though. My wife did enjoy your brick fire pizza, so i would stick to pizza as they are decently priced compared to the rest of the menu. They do have a small drink menu and the service was decent.

Okay so it's not that bad, if you're bringing children along and would like to drink a fishbowl for two by yourself while your children run around and throw the sand around and you do nothing, then yes this place would be perfect for you. However, if you are going there with some friends thinking you can grab some drinks and some nice food and maybe play a round or two of mini golf while you drink, unfortunately this place would not be for you. The drinks were amazing and we would all come back for those, and the food wasn't bad, just nothing special, also the kitchen needs to follow the Gordon Ramsay "remember salt!!" The dishes would probably be better. The salsa for the chips and salsa also needs to be double the size it is now. The chip to salsa ratio was great on the chip end but again about half of what you needed for the chips. Service was actually pretty great the server was friendly and he was very knowledgeable of the menu and helped us make some great choices. We will likely be back after a few months to see if anything has changed, but the kids running around with parents who don't care what their kids do will be this place for sure will have a massive down fall. Also, based on my engineering opinion as well as my friends (also an engineer). Have those boats supported the way they and the sand surrounding those supports with kids digging up all that sand and messing around those supports that look haphazardly constructed would be a disaster waiting to happen, if not a lawsuit. Owners may want to bring in an engineer and safety consultation on shoreing (yes a pun) those up

Loved the informal family atmosphere. Food was great. Our party of 9 ordered pizza, burgers and enjoyed several beer selections. Wonderful service. We will definitely return.
