The Glen Park Tavern in Williamsville

I'm really enjoying using the Buffalo Dining cards my boyfriend Geoffrey got for Christmas. They have been a fun way to check out a bunch of places in Buffalo we have never been to before! If you are looking for a fun gift for Valentine's Day or upcoming birthdays, pick them up!!! They are just $20 for the pack, and come in a card deck sized box with around 50 different places to try. Each card is good for $10 off your purchase.

On a Tuesday evening a few weeks ago, we ventured out to The Glen Park Tavern on Main Street for dinner with Geoffrey's son Jacob. The tavern is adorable on the inside with a big wood bar and a cozy "Cheers-esque" atmosphere. We were promptly seated in a booth and our service throughout the evening was great.

The menu is pretty large with many appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches/wraps, comfort foods, seafood entrees, chicken/ribs, etc...When asked what was the best, the waitress said the staple menu hasn't changed in 14 years, so almost everything is good!

I have a thing for French Onion soup so when I saw it on the menu, it was a no brainer to get it. It was a little pricier than other places ($5.99 a crock), but it was absolutely delicious. For our dinner selections I chose the Jane's wrap (chicken, portabella, roasted red peppers, artichokes and asiago cheese) which came with fries. Geoffrey had the Tavern Meatloaf which came with a generous portion of meatloaf, mashed potatoes/gravy and carrots. Jacob picked the macaroni and cheese off the kids menu. Absolutely everything we had was really good. The mac and cheese was homemade and it was a very generous portion size for a six year old (which was great for Geoffrey and me because we got to have some!). My wrap was very flavorful and a good size and the fries were really great! Geoffrey enjoyed his meatloaf dinner, the portion size was generous and reasonably priced at $9.99.

There was a very "homey" feel to the restaurant and the attitude was very upbeat and fun. We were in there around 530pm, and there were a handful of people enjoying happy hour at the bar and a few other tables of people eating dinner. The wait staff seemed prompt and everyone seemed to be enjoying their meals.

The Glen Park Tavern has been a historic staple in the Village of Williamsville for years. It's a fun night out with friends and also very kid friendly. The cost is very reasonable and the portion sizes are great.

They offer free music on Sunday afternoons from 2-5pm and also on Fridays late night from 10pm - 1am. They have numerous game day specials for Sabres/Bills games, and have nightly menu specials as well. They are opened most days at 11:30am - 10:00pm, extending an hour later on Fridays and Saturdays. They open at noon on Sundays.

If you are shopping on Main Street in Williamsville, or visiting Glen Falls, stop over to The Glen Park Tavern for a great meal!
