It’s going to be last call for one of Westchester’s longest operating pubs.
After shutting down its kitchen last week, Tighe’s Tavern on Martine Avenue in White Plains has announced it will be closing its doors on Sunday, Feb. 17 after nearly a century in Westchester. Last call will be at approximately 4 a.m.
The popular pub has been operating in the area since 1935, serving a series of regulars in the area cold beer and traditional bar food such as burgers and traditional Irish dishes. The space is reportedly being vacated by the owner, who is looking to pursue other ventures.
“Still the best place to eat,” Kathy Lawrence gushed on Facebook. “Had not been there in awhile. Use to go three and (four) times a week when I worked in the area. I met up with a co-worker there the other day I didn't see any of the old crew there but you can tell they must still have a hand in it. The service was excellent (thank you Courtney) the food was delicious as always. The place had that nice warm feeling. If you're looking for love and need a hug, best place to go. The food and comfort will give it to you. Love, love Tighe’s Tavern.”
A Yelp reviewer from Pearl River noted, “I worked in White Plains for (four) years and this was the only lunch I ever looked forward to. There were other good places but Tighe's was the big one. Everything I had there was good and fresh, and I heard they have great breakfast though I wasn't able to rise early enough to try it.
“The burger is an all time great, juicy and hand-packed clearly fresh meat but the topper was the topping. This place may have the best bacon on the planet. There was always enough that I'd eat at least one slice independent of the burger. Bacon that good made me believe that rumor about a great breakfast, because if the bacon is that good how can a breakfast go wrong? If you like burgers or corned beef or even just potato salad it's definitely the place you want to go.”
