Reporter Food: Tavern on the Main in Clawson

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Oct. 21, 2019)

Clawson, MI – I want to start this column out by saying that I did not eat that gigantic double-deck burger in the cover photo. That was my friend’s.  I just thought it photographed well.  He said it was great.

We had the pleasure of checking out Tavern on Main in Downtown Clawson one afternoon when it was still warm enough for the patio to be busy.  We took an inside spot and looked over the menu which is a mix of typical American bar food (like the burger you see here), and Greek items.

We started off with some dolmades, which are Grape leaves stuffed with rice. These were so soft and delicious with just a little tang to them. My friend had the classic double, while I opted for the Greek Gryo, which is gyro meat, onion, tomato, and tzatziki sauce wrapped in a pita.

Tavern on the Main also has a veggie burger and a grilled chicken breast sandwich, several fish entrees, grilled ham and cheese, salads and more. They’re located at 235 S. Main Street in Downtown Clawson. Check them out online at
