Tucked inside a historic 1779 tavern in historic Abingdon, The Tavern
is a delightful restaurant serving upscale American and German
cuisine. Over the years the building— the oldest historic building in the town — has been a bank, a bakery, and even a hospital during the Civil War. It became its current incarnation in 1994. Entrees sure to delight the tastebuds of diners include the filet mignon stuffed with shrimp, bacon, ricotta and herb cream cheese served with a Marsala reduction. There is also the wienerschnitzel, which are pan-fried, breaded veal cutlets accompanied by spaetzle, beef mushroom gravy plus red cabbage. To complement the meal, a selection of wine, including local varieties, is available.
