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

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.

Bartender wouldn't even say hello to me. Killed some time on the poker machine, put some songs on the jukebox (which got turned down so low when my songs came on I could barely hear the music) then sat at the bar talking to the regulars for a good 15 min and still didn't get served. I hadn't been drink and was never approached bey a bartender, so in still confused as to why I couldn't order a beer.The place was dark and dingy, overall very dirty (bathroom smelled bad/bar and seats sticky). In addition the staff was inattentive and the regulars loud and rowdy. Not welcoming at all.
