Old Point Tavern may have been established in 1887, but the food is as modern and fresh as the newest restaurant in the trendiest of neighborhoods.
Located in the heart of the Mass Ave. district, Old Point Tavern is the perfect place for lunch or a late night dinner on your way home from downtown.
When you look at the varied menu, Old Point Tavern serves up classic food anyone can enjoy.
Just want to munch before your meal? Try a snack like fruit and cheese or choose one of five types of nachos. I’ve had the chili nachos and trust me; you’re going to need help finishing them. If you don’t like your chili slathered over a bed of corn chips, no worries, it comes in a cup. For those who say no to meat, there’s a vegetarian style chili.
Although chili is the perfect comfort food, and with more people watching their weight, it’s impossible to not find a suitable salad on Old Point Tavern’s menu.
There’s…crab cake, chicken and basil, chicken feta, taco, Greek, Caesar, and many others. If you’re a Plain Jane, like me, order a house salad. Try it with the basil vinaigrette. It has a clean bite and is absolutely delicious.
I do like salad, but as a sandwich junkie, Old Point Tavern is like heaven. On their Sandwich Board menu, they offer traditional sandwiches in choices of smoked turkey, ham, tuna salad, or chicken salad.
For a snazzier sandwich, the sandwich “originals” menu has nine choices such as BBQ pork, double decker BLTA, or Josie’s veggie delight, Athens Chicken sandwich among others.
To wash down your delicious fare, there is a full bar along with soda, juice, water, energy drink, tea or coffee.
Old point’s prices are for most budgets with the most expensive item on the menu priced at $8.50. There are daily specials and if you can’t decide what to order, there are combo meals.
In addition to their delicious food, the best part about Old Point Tavern is its hours. I’m a night owl so having a sandwich at 2:30 a.m. is right up my alley. They’re open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 12 a.m.
If you’re at a point in your life (pun intended) where you’ve grown tired of boring sandwich chains or are hungry at 2 a.m., support local business and eat great food at Old Point Tavern.
