My husband went there last week for some cocktails with clients. He paid $5 to park in the gated lot. When the evening concluded he walked out to his car and the company that Park Tavern hired had booted him for no reason. He called the number on the boot and it took them 20 minutes to come out there. The person wanted $50 to take the boot off and when my husband threatened to call the police, they took it off and quickly left. Park Tavern needs to wake up and fire the parking company because they will scam the life out of you. Until Park Tavern fixes this, I refuse to go back.

Good food, good drinks, great view and they have plenty of parking, which is so rare in Midtown. PLus their "When it rains, it poors!" $1 beer special is a good way to waste away an ugly day.

I visit Park Tavern over and over again hoping that for once they will get it right! I love the view from the patio overlooking the park and the I love the fact that it's pet friendly. Unfortunately, every time I've visited, the service has been terrible. It seems as though this is an ongoing problem and they would do something to figure out how to make things more manageable for the servers.

I really want to like the Park Tavern. It's a great location overlooking the park, and the tables outside are fabulous on a nice summer evening. Unfortunately, every time I've visited, the service has been terrible. I was there just last week, and we couldn't get drink refills! You'd think the server would want to make the easy tip from selling us more alcohol, but he didn't come by at all until we hunted him down to ask for the bill! It's a nice place if you're not in a hurry, but don't expect to be attended to by your server.

I really like how Park Tavern overlooks the park and you can bring you dogs and hang out on a nice day. I like the beers here too. The food is average, but a great place to hang out.

Have a beer and relax, you'll be there awhile. Don't go if you want to grab and go. The beers are uniquer, but costly. There's usually weddings and such there if thats your scene.

This place is great if you want to grab a beer and people watch. The service is slow and the food is below average in taste and over priced!!

This is a nice place to go have a snack and drink on a nice day. Has seating outside right on the park. Service can be slow, but if you aren't in a hurry and at the park...swing by for a cold one.

I like going here for parties but that about it. The prices are up there and the food is average. Ive seen a few small bands here and had a good time.

It's a shame that the food couldn't be better at this restaurant, which arguably has the best location in all of Atlanta - right on Piedmont Park with a wonderful view of the midtown skyline. I went for brunch once a year ago and won't be back. The food was below average and the service was spotty at best.

Their location cannot be beat. Great if you are looking for a place to go if you had a kid or a dog. Staff are overworked though, service is spotty. Food is fine, HUGE desserts. Loud so don't expect to be able to carry a conversation and the seating is uncomfortable. Good place for a beer on a Spring afternoon.

When I have a poor experience, I usually just don't return. However, Easter brunch at the Park Tavern was so disappointing, I felt compelled to write. We arrived at 1 pm, and brunch was to be served until 2 pm. I was told the carving station was out of prime rib. Several chafing dishes were empty, and remained so for more than 10 minutes at a time. My daughters pancakes were raw inside, and when she asked for more, the chef burned them. At the first omelet station, the chef burned my sons omelet so bad, my son wouldn't let him put it on the plate. At the other omelet station, the chef did a much better job of cooking until he slid the omelet onto the plate and flattened it with the fry pan, transferring all the black soot onto the omelet. I gave them one last chance at redemption with a slice of cheesecake, which was frozen solid. The waitress reluctantly agreed to let me take this home to thaw. I know it is a busy holiday for restaurants, but I will not return. I was unable to post zero stars. Thank you.
