Executive Chef & owner Christopher Champagne is a Johnson and Wales grad who grew up eating local fare. He and his staff prepare every dish freshly to order so that guests can enjoy expertly crafted cuisine made with the utmost care.

Feeling more in the mood for lunch? Why not try a small Mesclun Salad (with caramalized walnuts, roasted red peppars, gorgonzola cheese, balsamic vinaigrette) accompanied by an Oyster Po'Boy, or munch on a Chicken Athena Wrap (grilled chicken, red onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, romaine, creamy cucumber dressing) while sipping on their "Lazy Afternoon" cocktail (orange vodka, prosecco, St. Germain, cranberry, pomegranate).
For dinner, 84 Tavern offers a wide variety of comfort food apps (they have 3 versions of poutine!) along with smaller bites like deviled eggs, olives, and bacon-wrapped dates. Entrees are all reminiscent of classic American cuisine: Grilled Rib-Eye, Roasted Salmon, Baked Stuffed Shrimp, multiple pasta and salad options, burgers and sandwiches. Two size options are available for most dishes.
As for their bar, 84 Tavern has an impressive list of both classic and contemporary cocktails as well as tons of tap brews and bottled beers. If you are more of a vino lover, you should definitely sample their wine on tap.
