Located in Stockton's Lincoln Center, Market Tavern is made up of 2 sides: a full-service restaurant/bar and food market. Market Tavern sprang from the single premise of offering the best prepared and fresh foods, locally sourced whenever possible. Market Tavern features farm-fresh ingredients across all menu items. The restaurant’s soft-lit interior, open-style kitchen and mirror-lined bar make for an ambiance that is both classic and cozy.
The food follows suit. Its wood-burning oven bakes up traditional style Neapolitan pizzas, while the wood-fueled grill and rotisserie cook a variety of organic and naturally raised meats. Starters, soups, salads, sides and sweets round out the menu, which also features signature cocktails, wine and beer. The market offers shoppers fresh meats; an alphabet of fresh produce – ranging from artichokes to zucchini; and local cheeses, olives oils and wines. House-baked bread and cookies, restaurant-prepared entrees and ready-made sandwiches make it easy to put together a lunch on-the-go or a gourmet take-out dinner.
Cozy place for sure. Great atmosphere. The smell of burning wood was also great. Vast selection of 🍺 and 🍷. Sadly to say the food could have used some help. Will definitely go back again.
I really loved this place! I had previously seen the ratings on Google and was invited by a friend to join them for lunch. The ambiance was so nice. We ended up sitting in the main dining area. Dark and dim but lively atmosphere with amazing food aroma in the air. Has a Bay Area Palo Alto feel. We ended up ordering 2 appetizers and 2 meals and each dish was so good. We loved how we could watch the food coming out of the kitchen to make a decision on what we're going to order. They have all kinds of items on the menu: Meat, No Meat, and Vegetarian selections. Full dessert and drink menu. I also loved the market which gives you the chance to purchase the food you've tasted on the menu. Overall, I look forward to visiting again by bringing someone else in the future.
This place is no doubt one of the tastiest place to eat in the neighborhood. Every time I come there I am very pleased. They preserve their very high standard service and the highest level of meals they offer. You are always happy with this restaurant. Very recommended.
I loved it... The experience of being able to eat here was the greatest. Our server was fantastic and she was nice and polite to us. The food was amazing, the skirt steak was great and the Hamburger was great as well. The cornbread along with Chili Honey butter was fantastic and it was something I haven't seen done. Ill be coming back to eat here again!!!
Food came out timely, all so deliciously filling. Service was quick and attentive. Would definitely come back.
Excellent service and delicious steak! The cut was juicy and tender, served with a generous portion of fries and cooked veggies. They serve quality meat! Definitely the go-to steakhouse in the Stockton area. I even had a great laugh when I read their sign walking in the front door
Tried this place with friends on a spur of the moment night out! It was so so good! Our server made great recommendations for food! We went with the pizza, the Cobb salad, and ceaser salad. The cocktails were a little too small for the price. We ordered three desserts and every single one was YUMMY! We will be back!
We came to this spot for dinner. my friend recommended this place. Well, it was very successful. the staff members were so friendly and we had a fantastic feeling. The meal was yummy. We loved this restaurant a lot and we will definitely return to this restaurant. Warmly recommended.
Had a great experience here. Great service, nice selection of beers, and good food. Cornbread appetizer was recommended and was very delicious. Burgers are thick and good.
Great quality food and courteous prompt service. Awesome drinks and rotating menu. A true gem in the Central Valley.
Food and service were excellent. They were able to work a plan B with social distancing seating that works, and is comfortable. Highly recommend.
My boyfriend and i came here after leaving midgleys because they wouldnt seat us for happy hour. The service was GREAT!!! As soon as we got their we were seated and brought water and drinks were ordered. The cornbread appetizer was amazing and fresh and so were the fish tacos! Delicious food and great service. I love this place!!!
Even with the covid-19 the service is outstanding food was great..Bloodymary was off the chains...very pleased over all..
Great food. I had the beet salad and corn bread, they were on point! My wife has the skirt steak and she shared it with me and it was really good to. The staff was friendly and the prices were reasonable and differently matched the quality of food. If im ever in Stockton again ill be back.
It was really good. Elle was our server, she was really nice and attentive. I had the king salmon and the friend I was with had the cut of the day which was steak I believe both were delicious. The charcuterie board was good, mashed potatoes were plain, all in all $100
Really nice atmosphere. The food here is beyond amazing! Prices are very inexpensive for what you get. Definitely try the French toast you won't be disappointed
Wish I could rate this place higher because the food is great. The service is very slow and inattentive. Bring your own salt and pepper because even if they ask you if you need anything else and you ask for it, they won’t bring it. I would think maybe it was just a one time thing and let it go, but it has happened on multiple visits with different servers.
Awesome to sit outside and enjoy a meal in these times. Had the short ribs, cooked perfectly with tastey polenta and vegetables. Service was kind and knowledgeable. An overall great experience.
I have never been disappointed with the quality of the food or service. Waitstaff are attentive it don't hover. The food is unique and familiar at the same time.
We love Market Tavern, and have been coming at least once a week. The food is delicious, the staff are so warm and friendly, and everything is decent quality. We also love the lack of pretentiousness here. It is welcoming enough that we can bring our toddler in too. Highly recommend!
Had a wonderful meal here. Scallops special was delicious as was the hummus and pitas. Husband had fall salad and sausage pizza..he loved it all.
Good stuff! Ordered ahead and that double Angus burger (forgot what it was called) but it was delicious. Even though it took awhile for us to get home, the Buger tasted fresh. The fries unfortunately didn't survive the trip that well but that wasn't anybodys fault. Whenever we can dine in or outside again, I'd have to give the burger and fries another try since it will be Fresh. Now I see why people come here all the time. Great stuff!
The food is pricey but you can always share a plate to get quality taste while saving calories if your on a budget as we take this route at times. I usually like going to Sacramento to have a good dinner but the Market Tavern is beginning make me and my wife local patrons. Job Well done Market Tavern!!

Natalie was the best waitress we have had in a while, super nice and friendly and just great all around. This place is the only one I will eat at when in Stockton on a job. Quality food, made right, great wine list etc. Thanks for being here and making life a bit better! Highly recommended.
Delicious dinner at Market Tavern, Was invited to a party, I just loved every thing I tasted, they were so delicious. The staff were so nice and helpful.
Got the spinach and endive salad with salmon. Overall good but not something I'd rave about. Good flavor, very nice salad
Just passing through Stockton headed to Southern Cali. Food was great, service was very fast. Sat in the bar area at a high table and were able to get in/out within a half hour. Atmosphere was great, looked like a nice place to hang with friends. Would highly recommend taking the 5min detour off the freeway to eat here.
Where we was originally seated there was a table with about 8 people at it . One lady was drinking and so loud she was obnoxious. My wife has health issues and seizures. High pitched noises can trigger seizures . I asked our server Lisa if she could move us because of my wife's issue's. She was happy too ☺️. Now about the food. It was incredibly good. We will definitely be back
What a great find! The Monday night fried chicken special is not to be missed!! We don't often eat fried chicken but it was worth ordering! The chicken was not too greasy and cooked just right. A good selection of small plates. We loved the little store right in the building that is an extension of the restaurant.

One of our favorite restaurants in Stockton. Always amazing food and service the staff is amazing locally owned great fresh feel to table experience.The food is always amazing I haven't had anything I haven't loved. Very nice place. Great service and friendly staff a must go spot if you're in the Stockton area.
This place is great! I really look forward to eating there again, but I know now to make reservations if we want to go Sunday. (We got in with no problem first thing during the week). We ordered house made breakfast sausage, poached eggs, potatoes and toast. Everything was soooo good! I especially loved their house made jam. Highly recommended!
Absolute excellence! Amazing food, incredible service, and perfect atmosphere to enjoy a delicious lunch! The servers were incredible and very attentive. The seating is very welcoming and you feel like an invited guest the minute you walk in. Food was served quickly despite being busy and was customized as requested and cooked to perfection! A must visit for everyone when exploring the Lincoln Center or when visiting Stockton.
A wonderful lunch spot. Love their pizzas and had the fish tacos today. Very creative and healthy options. One of my favorites.
Expensive. Be prepared to spend some money. We was told our table was reserved for 1.5 hours and would have to move or make more reservations for another table. 7pm came and went and was never told to move 🤷♂️. Guess it depends on how busy they are. I had the pork chops, good but not worth $32. Still a good every once in a while experience
I’ve had breakfast here many times so when my friends came to visit this was where I took them. They were so impressed. We ordered many items (biscuits and gravy, lemon/blueberry pancakes, French toast w/banana and a butter brown sugar sauce, avocado toast with smoked salmon, scramble, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice...). One friend commented on how surprised she was that every single item was really delicious! The waitresses and even manager made us feel welcomed and cared for. I love this spot and wish Stockton had more trendy places like this.
I gave this place way too much credit from the beginning! Just because it is in the Lincoln Center does not make it top notch! We arrived without a reservation and was seated in the very first booth looking right into the parking lot. This table was also directly under one of the televisions. I have this thing....I check things above me in any restaurant I go to, it kind of gives me a feel for how clean a place will be. Sometimes, I wish I didn't. I look above me to the television and I see the bottom side caked with dirt and dust clumps. Ewwe. Our waitress at first impression was polite and took our drink order promptly, although it took a little longer to actually get the drinks. Most of the glasses were clean, at least I would like to believe except the glass that had the shot of vodka from the well. There was visible residue left at the top of the glasses along with smudged fingerprints and floaters in the drink. We asked for another one because of the foreign objects we discovered and when given the other glass, there was no fingerprints, but now even more floaters in the drink. Politely we asked again for another and our waitress seemed gracious enough and apologetic. She brought the new one and assured us it was poured from a new bottle. Thank you! The food was nothing to be desired especially for the prices you payed and such small portions. I'm talking really small portions. I ordered the braised short ribs and literally got one rib.
A wonderful cool escape during a real hot Stockton afternoon. How to cool off? Looking for a Gin & Tonic we tried the Tavern Tonic on their specialty menu and were not disappointed! Exactly the right blend to cool you down and quench that thirst! A perfect escape from the heat!
This restaurant is decorated very nice inside. You can see the cooks preparing the food across from your table. The atmosphere is very warm and the waitresses make you feel right at home. The brick oven pizza was very good and it even had a salty taste to it which was different. The chicken sandwich was good but they do put coleslaw on it which I felt didn't help the taste. Also they use sweet pickles on that sandwich so some people might not like that. If you like sea salt then get the french fries. If you want something to go stop by the deli as they have some of the same food you can take home. Overall a very nice restaurant with seating outside.
