Lavergne’s Tavern opened in June, 2016 at the corner of Windsor and East Avenues in the old Garv’s Inn location, a staple in Berwyn since the ’60s.

The tin ceiling and hardwood floors are restored, and the storied Garv’s Inn bar is rebuilt from scratch using reclaimed black walnut. A combination of high-top bar seating and lower tables help keep the atmosphere friendly to both families and those looking to join a date or friends for a night out.

Led by Executive Chef, Mark Downing, the menu is accessible but elevated. Items are priced from $6-$9 for shareable appetizers to entrées at around $14-$16. The Italian Beef Egg Roll, filled with Italian beef, giardiniera, spicy queso, Monterey jack cheese, and au jus dipping sauce is, in one customer’s words, “life changing.”

    Very unassuming looks like your typical average bar but the food inside is amazing. I also had a pretty damn good, old-fashioned. Oh wait, I had 2!!! Our waiter was pretty good even when it was crazy busy and overall Service was very friendly. I would definitely come back again. Italian beef rolls and Carne Asada fries, are life !!

    They were very busy. We were there for a fundraiser for the school. So the staff was stretched a little thin. But the food and drinks are always amazing. It's a great place.

    Everything was great but I realized the next day that I was over charged for a mixed drink I didn’t order. Goes to show you you need to review your bill before you pay. Normally wouldn’t complain but it was an additional $16 on the tab plus tip which put me over $100.. Kind of upset considering I always come and invite family and friends

    It was okay, service was slow, waitress would disappear, food took along time to come out and when it did it was cold to the point where we had to return it. Other tables that got there after us all got food before us. Was little disappointed.

    The food and service was good. I was only disappointed with the Santa. My son was very excited to go and meet Santa and came out disappointed because Santa wasn't friendly and cheerful. He looked like he disliked being there and my son even noticed it. Santa didn't say one word to him and didn't even put his hand on his shoulder for a picture.

    Enjoyed this restaurant for brunch previously but it was just ok this time. Service was ok at best. Food took forever to arrive and was lukewarm. We asked for some add-ons like salsa and had to request again. Ordered the vegan bowl but added feta and were told once food arrived there was no feta in the restaurant even though feta was in other menu items. Everything seemed to be a struggle. We really want to like and support this local business but we were disappointed and probably won't be returning or recommending any longer.

    I ordered the Nashville Chicken Sandwich and it was Terrible. The Chicken was Room temperature when I bit into it,No Flavor At All,Greasy is an Understatement. The Beer was cold and the Italian Beef Rolls were good,so it wasn't a Total disappointment. It's actually my fault. I was expecting Restaurant Food,but their food is Nothing more than bar appetizers.

    Their food is definitely worth trying, very interesting and delicious dishes. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant was renovated in the last couple years, so cute interior and outdoor patio. Went for Mother's Day brunch and the menu selection was great. Only negative was the music was really loud. We went 2 other times and didn't have that issue. So maybe they just did that for Mother's day with all the kids that were there (to cover up other noise).

    Burgers were above average, caesar salad with chicken was ample and fresh and the chicken was not overcooked! Cocktails--very good. The ambience is okay as long as you expect that you are going to be eating in a non-pretentious bar-like spot.

    For a bar with a restaurant I at least expected a decent cocktail my table ordered simple drinks they were terrible. The food wasn't much better, salmon was overcooked and dry others in my party had ribs and greasy fries as well as the fried chicken. Our waitress was new and was trying her best. I definitely will not return or recommend to anyone else.
