Editorial Review of Tavish

Tavish sounds like a made-up word you'd use to describe something hip and cool like, "He's totally tavish." If that were the case, "tavish" wouldn't appropriately describe Tavish Bar and Grill. Not that Tavish isn't a great place to grab a pint with some friends…there's simply nothing trendy about it. The quintessential neighborhood bar and restaurant has a friendly, effortless atmosphere that welcomes anyone passing by.

The place features a subtle aviation theme with a retro airplane on the outside sign and geometric drawings that resemble blueprints hanging on the walls. Other than the artwork, the room's ambiance relies on the original structure's crimson tin walls and rustic wood floor. A fireplace in the front of the room warms the small space filled with tall tables and one-sided red booths. You're likely to hear a newscast or sports game playing, but its few TVs wouldn't earn this place sports-bar status.

The range of domestic beers and microbrews include Pabst, Berghoff and Harp. Wednesdays offer discounted domestic drafts ($2 instead of the standard $3), and Thursdays feature $3 (rather than $4) microbrews. The menu boasts good pub grub with some standout items like the build-you-own-burgers ($8), varied appetizers and daily pasta specials. A kids' menu and mellow crowd makes Tavish family-friendly. During warmer months you can sit outside on its small, yet "tavish" (who are we kidding?), sidewalk patio.
