The Tavern Story

Our owner, Bryan Flaherty grew up on Arrowhead Road. Just a stone's throw away from this restaurant. Back then, this hill was just a hill with some huge and very comfortable Bluestone rocks. It became a favorite pastime for kids to skip stones, swap stories, enjoy long summer days, and on rare occasion, sneak a cig.

The rock on the hill (aka Kissing Rock) was also where Bryan experienced his first kiss. A special place indeed!

We believe this restaurant is more than just a business: it's a way to connect to our local roots and give back to the community. In a world dominated by social media, we believe that real connections-like sharing a great meal with family or laughing with friends over a few drinks-are the foundations of long-lasting relationships.

And at Tavern on the Hill, we encourage our guests to "Eat. Drink. Connect" –face to face, in real time.
