Celebrating 30 Years!

The Tavern is proud to have celebrated our 30th year in Historic Downtown Northfield!
We opened the doors in 1984 with 3 important goals in mind:
  • great food
  • served in a relaxed atmosphere
  • and at a fair price.
The Tavern continues this legacy today with its true scratch kitchen, fresh baked breads & desserts, homemade soups and sauces, and a dedication to the quality of its food and service.
