What You'll Get
Tavern dining has advanced more than 700 years since Chaucer's peevish reeve accused his fellow pilgrims of replacing his ale with the water fromme a wylde bukke goat. Raise your own zealously guarded flagon with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of drinks and modern tavern dining at Tavern 99 in Buckhead.
Patrons at Tavern 99 will immediately notice the upscale menu options. Along with bar classics such as hot wings ($8.99), burgers (starting at $8.99), and fish and chips ($11.99), Tavern 99 offers fried-calamari starters ($9.99) and adventurous pub entrees such as seared mahi with spinach and black beans ($12.99) and specialty sandwiches such as pulled-pork bánh mì ($10.99) and the Cuban ($8.99). Check the specials for weekday deals. Try $2 Blue Moon drafts on Wednesday and $13 buckets of Corona and Corona Light on Tuesday (five bottles per bucket), or throw weekday-based caution to the wind and plow through the 27 beers on tap (prices vary). A signature cocktail and dessert are the best reward for resisting the urge to swap a friend's drink with an enemy's drink, so have a slice of key-lime pie ($6.99) and a Peachtree Tea (sweet-tea vodka and peach schnapps with a lemon and mint garnish, $8.50).
Unwind in the wood-paneled chambers of Tavern 99 in the rain, and take advantage of the two levels of patio during sunny nights and moonlit days in the company of friends who practice the ancient art of telling ridiculous truths and universal lies to fellow tavern patrons.

- The newest, largest hangout from owner Scott McCray of McCray's West Village Tavern, 6th St. Tavern, and the not-at-all-repetitively named Tavern On The Square, 99's a 200-seat shrine to beer and bites in the former Aiko spot, with a two-level patio, an interior with two brown marble-topped bars, nine flatscreens, dark wood-paneled walls adorned with red drapes, an event room with space for 100 in back with its own restrooms and bar, and a brick-walled stage for small bands, as long as they promise not to behave like Little Richards. – Thrillist
- Lots of beers, TVs, and really cool space - not your typical sports bar. – Kelly H., Yelp
