Big City Tavern is a busy, vibrant restaurant reminiscent of the great urban taverns of Chicago, New York and Boston. A stylish, classic American restaurant, Big City offers a varied menu featuring dry aged steaks, burgers, fresh seafood, salads and fresh house-made pasta of the day. Some of the more popular dishes are the Pan Roasted Salmon with Tomato and the House-Made Charcuterie. The desserts are all enticing, all house made and all delicious. The extensive wine list emphasizes California varietals by the bottle or glass. With its magnificent grand bar always busy, Big City has a constant din of energy and conviviality. Big City offers outdoor sidewalk dining in the center of the action on Las Olas Blvd. If you have special needs, require high chairs or need assistance please notify us.

Please call the restaurant to make reservations for parties of 8 or more!

This is one of those restaurants that can always be relied upon to produce good quality food at a reasonable price . Restaurant can be a bit on the loud side on the inside but lots of atmosphere or you can wait for a table on the patio and people and car watch on Las Olas.

One of my go to restaurants as a resident of Fort Lauderdale

Service was atrocious. Had to flag down someone to get us a server. No silverware, then promised nonexistent bread. After taking main courses, came back after salads to say they lost the order? Had to reorder. Kitchen runner came with 3 orders. Waited 15 minutes for 4th main course. Wrong! Reordered then waited until most were done eating. Waiter was no where to be had. No apologies, never came back to ask how the food came out ultimately. A no show. Got the check; did take entree off but no communication with server that there would be an adjustment. A nightmare. Food was good but we will never return

We heard good things about the restaurant, was excited to try it. Unfortunately, the Las Olas Arts Festival hindered our reservation time. I wished the restaurant had given us a heads up. However, after our party made it. We enjoyed the food and drinks and good vibes. Will definitely return.

I make sure to have at least one meal at Big City Tavern when I spend a week in Fort Lauderdale. The pappardelle with duck confit is to die for.

Always a great time at this energetic Bar and Restaurant. We usually choose inside seating nut the outside overlooking the busy Las Olas Blvd scene is also a great spot weather permitting.
BE prepared for large portions and delicious flavors as well! The service is casual Bar Friendly and you will find yourself in and out as quick as you want if you have after dinner plans.

Large tavern-type restaurant. Food well prepared, margarita (on National Margarita Day - only a coincidence) was excellent. I'd eat here again!

Our salads, apps were great but one of the entrees was just not good. We have eaten here before and maybe it was just an off night for the Tuna.. all in all I really like Big City Tavern

This restaurant was suggested for us to meet with our cousins at a half way point for all of us. It didn’t disappoint.........we all enjoyed our salads and the restaurant. We would come again when in the area.
Thank you, from Naples, Fl
