City Tavern offers a historic dining experience, complete with Colonial haute cuisine, costumed wait staff, and Colonial-era drinks and desserts.

Award-winning Chef Walter Staib earned his restaurant a Five Star Diamond Award with his hearty choices of traditional American cuisine, like the turkey pot pie in a delectable sherry cream sauce. In the warm-weather months, diners can enjoy the traditional American cuisine from a garden-side seat.
