Changing With The Times
When Big Beaver Tavern opened its doors in the summer of 2009, it brought with it a 20 year reputation for great service and high-quality dining. Formerly known as Larco's Italian Chophouse, the Tavern was born out of a desire to change with the economic times - opening the door for more people to try our great food and hospitality than ever before.
Great New Menu
Focusing on quality, fourth-generation chef Peter Larco experimented with his new menu until he got it just right, creating a list of sandwiches and entrees that embraces the restaurant's new direction towards Italian and American comfort food - at the same time highlighting a few favorite dishes from Larco's Italian Chophouse.
The Old School Burger, a 1/2lb. Angus Chuck burger, is the star of the new menu. Served with our signature Fancy Sauce, it's considered by some to be the best burger in Oakland County. Meanwhile, old Larco's favorites still grace the new menu. Like Filet Mignon with our Original Zip sauce, and Spaghetti Bolognese, classic Italian, hearty all meat ragu, topped with baked mozzarella. And for dessert, you'll love the Crème Brulee, our Chocolate Bomb, Carrot Cake or, of course, our classic Tiramisu, all prepared in-house.
The atmosphere at Big Beaver Tavern is casual, fun and comfortable, whether you're stopping in for drinks and a quick bite, or for a couple of beers while checking sports scores on our numerous wide-screen televisions, or simply looking for a great meal the whole family will enjoy. And don't forget nightly poker tournaments and a popular mix of great entertainment every Friday and Saturday.
The staff is attentive, the prices reasonable, the quality outstanding. Visit us soon and see why we say we're not your average tavern!
