A great place to enjoy a memorable meal with friends & family

Tavern on the Common is Rutland’s finest family dining establishment where locals know they can always go to find great steaks, seafood, sushi, beer, wine, cocktails, and live musical entertainment! Join us any night of the week for a memorable meal or stop in on Friday or Saturday for some cocktails and apps at the bar before a night of live music by local bands!

As a local, hometown restaurant, we’re committed to providing excellent service. Our staff is comprised of experienced restaurant professionals. You’ll find our servers, bartenders, and management to be friendly, courteous, and dedicated to ensuring that your party has a positive experience each time you visit!

Upon opening your menu you’ll realize that we have much more to offer food-wise than your typical tavern. While we have all your classic pub fare like burgers, nachos, and Buffalo wings, you’ll also find exquisite sushi rolls, thick, juicy steaks, and expertly prepared seafood entrees.

Our bar offers Keno and is open late. During the fall, you can stop in any Sunday to watch football on our 3 HDTVs!
