Expensive drinks; decor did not. Our group was excited to visit this new Pirate-themed place. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. Although the staff were dressed in pirate garb, not much else seemed to be pirate-oriented. It felt more like a combination of a family-style restaurant and too-bright Irish/Scottish bar. We were very confused by this! The only rum drinks they offered were shots or your basic rum-and-Coke mixed drinks. They were expensive as well -$6- and I watched the bartender carefully measure an exact shot (no overspill) into the drinks. The menu listed a "rumpunch," but our waiter informed us they had not as yet 'mastered that.' What's to master, I wonder? The beers were expensive, too, although they were very large. They did not offer a smaller size for those of us who fill up on beer and might prefer a smaller size for a smaller price. The Vegan theme also seemed to be out of context with the attempted (but failed) pirate theme. As one member of our party put it, "I bet it's like a husband and wife team where one always wanted a pirate bar and the other always wanted to own a vegan restaurant." It didn't seem to add up. All of this, plus a remote location without any neighboring activity. We were hoping for so much more.
Good and Fun Vegetarian/Vegan Food. Pirates Tavern appeals to two groups - pirate fans and vegetarians/vegans. The food is pretty good and there is always room. They are also open relatively late.
