Sahm's Tavern Restaurant Review

: When the occasion calls for good food and a friendly atmosphere, Sahm's Tavern is the pick. It is the go-to place when you’re in the mood for a quick beer and slider after work or before a concert, a leisurely date-night dinner, or when you’re simply craving juicy burgers on house-baked rolls. Salad dressings, sauces and gravies also are house-made, and local ingredients, such as Goose the Market sausage, figure prominently in several dishes. Steaks are still sizzling when they arrive at the table and stir-fries are abundant with meats and vegetables. Beer and wine lists lack luster, but everyone will find a suitable drink. Desserts feature the signature coffee cake that is a legend in these parts, as well as cobblers.
