Love coming here to watch the Browns play! We joined the fan group and hope to be there for every game. They have several TV’s, a huge projector, some skew ball, pinball, darts, pool (billiards), and a few other games I don’t recall the name of. There’s something for everyone. Great food, amazing alcohol, and the prices are perfectly set. The staff is fun and friendly. If you don’t have a good time here, it’s your own fault!

Went last night with friends had a great time. The door guy, D, was very tall, friendly and cute and made us feel very welcome, nice open and airy floor, two levels and a dance floor, the bar is a little tight, bartenders seemed cool. They keep a constant upkeep with sweeping and empty glasses. SKEET BALL!! Showed up a little too late for the kitchen, it closes kind of early I guess. I would definately recommend the Tavern to family and friends!!

Great spot for watching sports, and spending your Tuesday nights. Pretty strict on not sitting on the pool tables but the pitchers and drink deals are unbeatable. Definitely check out the castle for darts and other games. Glad they stepped up the amount of games. Don't underestimate the dance either. make sure to say hi to Dave. He's the man.

My favorite bar to go to in Durham. Jason is my favorite bartender. Most of the staff is friendly. Most of the food is good. Lots of good people hang out here

I love the staff. Tennessee and Kitty are wonderful. Good prices on beers. Pool tables, video games, darts and air hockey. Also have a modern jukebox. Love the wings. Burgers are huge. And they also have a stage area. Outside seating. Parking is decent. Perfect place to drink and chill.

Happy Happy Monday!! I don't really leave reviews I guess that's why I almost forgot. I wanted to give a review on this place because we went to a few other places that were, okay, but we ended our night at the tavern. We hit a few bars last week, a group of friends and myself and someone told us about the tavern. It wasn't too far from where we were so we took an uber over. I believe this was Thursday night, when we got there karaoke was in full swing, the place was pretty packed and the kitchen had this Heavenly aroma wafting from it and I just knew I was going to get some chicken wings. The neon lights hanging all around , with the extra game room upstairs in the back, the set up just opened the place up the further you walked in. The bartenders seemed pretty cool, we didn't have to wait too long for our drinks, the chicken wings turned out to be some of the best I've ever had while at a bar and we washed them down with some good drinks they had on special. Oh and a big hi to Dino, who handled a situation for us, quickly. He's got some dance moves too. All in all I had a really great time, I'm not from the area but I'll be back whenever I am. Chow!!

Nice ambiance they way they have it set-up with pool tables, arcade, and booths with tv monitors on the ground floor and steel dart boards at top level with plenty of light. Downside that one of the tables had 2-rips in it that should be fixed. Different types of craft beers on tap and they do serve food. Tried ordering the gyros sandwich but never heard of ground beef added to the lamb meat EVER. Didn't get her name but short manager was very friendly. Will come back.

Had a great day here celebrating a friends birthday. Beer was nice and cold. Bartender very attentive. Nice pool tables and updated pinball machines, which are hard to find. Loved it!

Good bar with a great food selection near Duke's eat campus. The late evening crowd is boisterous, and can be a bit busy and noisy for us old folks, but is a plus for most people under 40.

Arcade games are cool, especially the hunting one (check out its Zombie Mode!). Pool table, darts, and live sports are a nice bonus.
