This place is great. It's simple American food done well (meat loaf, burgers, etc) for a great price. Small but solid selection of beers on tap. There is usually a crowd of people my age and I always have a good time. I think there's banks sometimes which is a plus and I just learned they have 1$ oysters so I'll have to try that.Review Source:
Hearty portions of 99-esque fare, dumbed down and dirtied up, but enjoyable nonetheless.
It's a blank tavern, oddly dismal even with the chipper host/server at the door and a handful of TVs behind the bar. It's so nondescript, I could probably ask a kid who's never been inside a pub to draw what they think it'd look like, and whaddya know? Spot on.
There's a part of me (a big part) that wishes I'd ordered seafood instead of my BBQ turkey tips. I don't know why, the options just sounded more appealing. But the gobble echoed true; the turkey who lost won eventually. And for a $12 plate, it was sweet and meaty and tasted just fine. The side of zucchini (or choose your own daily vegetable) is tender and well-seasoned.
Not that anybody is accusing Woburn Center of hiding away culinary gems from the hungry masses, but should I ever pass through amidst a fear stomach grumblin', I wouldn't not stop by Tanner Tavern again. Take that as you will.
