Watch out for BED BUGS!! in this establishment Just told by exterminator the bar benches have some of the worst bed bugs he has seen!! it has caused so much heart ache in the community it has been traced back to this bar.DON'T DRINK FROM THE ROTTEN DRAFT THAT'S WHY DRINKS ARE SO CHEAP pay the extra dollar and go to a real bar without spreading anything!!!
P tav – Great place, had a good time, very inexpensive drinks, ok food and nice staff.
Horrible – I had such high hopes for this bar, and I tried to like it so much since it was such in close proximity to where I live, but the food was a sad display, and the drinks were weak. The manager was unhelpful and quite frankly rude. We wanted to discuss the quality of drinks and food and were brushed off. Even a later phone call was handled inappropriately. If you want to have a great time with quality food and service AVOID THIS BAR!!!
Try the breakfast – Go in the AM for breakfast, they have a special for $3.50. Eggs,meat,hash browns and toast. The cook will make them just how you want....
Worst steak I've ever eaten – Visited the Park Tavern after hearing much about it. As one of my favorite beers, Arrogant B@st@rd (Sigh, filtering.), is on tap there, it looked to be a pleasant trip. Unfortunately, the beers were skunky, flat, and more or less undrinkable.
For the meal, I tried the special: a New York Steak Sandwich, cooked medium. What I got: the worst, most bland, rubbery, overcooked steak placed on a flavorless bun. Someone in need of a steak sandwich would be far better served by going to the grocery store and buying frozen Steak'ums.
Atmosphere is that of a typical bar, if a bit aged feeling. The environment is on the loud side and continues to get more so as the night wears on. The staff is fairly friendly and chatty.
Would not go back, nor recommend.
What more could you want?!? – Here's the deal: It's practically always happy hour at this place, meaning 2-for-1 drinks pretty much anytime you're there. If it's not happy hour, it's probably $2-U-Call-Its (Tuesday nights), or DOLLAR drinks (Saturday nights). And even if none of things happen to be going on while you're there, the drinks are still cheaper than most places anyway. Plus, there's bingo on Monday nights and trivia on Wednesday nights, poker on Sundays, tons of TV's if you want to watch a sports game, and there are pool and foosball tables.
So if the cheap drinks and tons of entertaining activities aren't enough to convince you that the Park Tavern is awesome, try the food!! Seriously, the pizza is surprisingly good (and cheap)!! The Greek salad is another one of my favs, along with the buffalo chicken sandwich. The burgers are tasty as well, and my biggest complaint is that mine might not have been cooked exactly to temperature (I asked for medium, and it was more along the medium-well side).
Although there can sometimes be white-trashy type people there, there are also the awesome, down-to-earth people there too! I definitely agree with what has been said about there not being yuppies, just a good mix of different, genuine people! Including the staff!! So you tell me, what more could you want?!?
cheap drinks, cheap service – The drinks are dirt cheap, they have a patio in the summer, but that is where the charm of this dirty dive bar comes to an end. The servers are rude, the drinks are nearly undrinkable.
"Great Dive Bar"??? Are you serious??? – I can't BELIEVE this bar has such a high rating. Yes, the drinks are cheap, but you get what you pay for. I'm not a fan of some of the super trendy and pretentious Lodo or Highlands bars, but this place is ugly, dirty, and completely without charm. And the people who go there seem to be primarily stupid white trash who only care about how completely wasted they can get.
Great specials, great dive bar – This place has great drink specials. It also has a relatively down to earth environment compared to other bars. The staff is always laid-back and friendly. Overall, this is a great dive bar.
Funny this place has a following – Yeah like I want to hangout a frat party. It was like I was back at the dorm, drunks reeling all over the place and some young girl who looked like she just got out of cheerleading practice ralphed all over. Great place if you didn't get enough of b -rated keg partys
