Lavergne’s Tavern opened in June, 2016 at the corner of Windsor and East Avenues in the old Garv’s Inn location, a staple in Berwyn since the ’60s.

The tin ceiling and hardwood floors are restored, and the storied Garv’s Inn bar is rebuilt from scratch using reclaimed black walnut. A combination of high-top bar seating and lower tables help keep the atmosphere friendly to both families and those looking to join a date or friends for a night out.

Led by Executive Chef, Mark Downing, the menu is accessible but elevated. Items are priced from $6-$9 for shareable appetizers to entrées at around $14-$16. The Italian Beef Egg Roll, filled with Italian beef, giardiniera, spicy queso, Monterey jack cheese, and au jus dipping sauce is, in one customer’s words, “life changing.”

    Their food is definitely worth trying, very interesting and delicious dishes. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant was renovated in the last couple years, so cute interior and outdoor patio. Went for Mother's Day brunch and the menu selection was great. Only negative was the music was really loud. We went 2 other times and didn't have that issue. So maybe they just did that for Mother's day with all the kids that were there (to cover up other noise).

    Burgers were above average, caesar salad with chicken was ample and fresh and the chicken was not overcooked! Cocktails--very good. The ambience is okay as long as you expect that you are going to be eating in a non-pretentious bar-like spot.

    For a bar with a restaurant I at least expected a decent cocktail my table ordered simple drinks they were terrible. The food wasn't much better, salmon was overcooked and dry others in my party had ribs and greasy fries as well as the fried chicken. Our waitress was new and was trying her best. I definitely will not return or recommend to anyone else.

    I love Lavergne's, but on a cold winter evening, the place was cold and drafty every time a patron entered. The food was tasty, but the burger I ordered cooked to medium came as medium rare. I got the impression everything was hurried. Finally the beer taps were not working, so we couldn't pick from their normally great selection.

    It was way over crowded and did not adhere to state COVID guidelines. The bar had every seat occupied, the eating area had nearly every table occupied and there was no social distancing at all. The music was loud and club-like, making eating and talking difficult so people were talking loudly, maskless in close proximity. Though the staff wore masks, patrons walked around freely without face coverings. If it weren't for the quality of the food, this would be a two star review. Perhaps it was a bad night but just not worth it for the $$ and distance traveled.

    Was seated on the Patio which was very nice. The bees loved my smoked salmon just as much as I did. Service was very slow. Not enough staff. Going inside to visit the restroom and considering all the "safety" procedures that were posted on line and in the restaurant I was shocked to see a group with two 8 - 10 top tables all occupied and the tables were very close to each other as were the customers seated. It was very congested I had to squeeze past the group to get to the restroom. It was weird that the rest of the restaurant was empty! Also, I thought as of last week Pritzker said patrons were to keep their masks at all times except when physically eating or drinking. ??

    The food is excellent. Everything was super good. The service not so much and the drinks weren’t good for a tavern/bar type of place. Our party ordered a variety and majority of us weren’t that happy with how they were made and they didn’t even have basic beer that every place always has.

    This was our first time eating at Lavergne's and we will definitely return! I liked the variety the menu offered The chipotle chicken tinga tacos were delicious! My husband had the Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich and he thought it was very good. Drinks were spot on as well. My kids were happy with their kids meals too! This place was very busy on a Friday evening and I'm glad I made a reservation. I highly recommend making a reservation ahead of time if possible. This is a great neighborhood location!

    This is very family friendly and we are regulars at Laverne's! My children love eating dinner here, and the chef is always willing to modify meals from the regular menu to make it "picky eater" friendly for my kids. We love that we can support our neighborhood businesses. Food and cocktails are great! Wine choices not my favorites, but beer is great!

    I would recommend because the food was good and the waiter was excellent. The issue I had was with our seating. I have been here before and I dread these tables in the back that no one ever wants. Well we got one of these tables. They are horrible and cramped. You cant fit into it comfortably and you are almost sitting on the back of the person behind you. We had 5 and the table behind us had 6 people and 2 very young kids. The people refused to move in their chairs because they were there first and the woman made snide comments about our size. The tension made for a very uncomfortable situation. We tried to have our table moved to a more open space and we were told a party of 25 was coming in so we couldn’t move. I understand you have to set up for the 25 pp, but they arrived as we were leaving and we were there for a good 90 min. Only because we had to wait for the people at the other table to leave so we could spread out, finally catch up with each other and talk. I wouldn’t recommend this brunch over 2 people due to the noise level and those tables are ridiculous. Also being cramped into a corner with no air conditioning was the topper for this visit, I had to fan myself with the menu. It did kick on 15 min. Before we left.
