United States Marines Toys for Tots Foundation at Ed’s Tavern

Ed’s Tavern warmly welcomes the United States Marine Corps’ outstanding Toys for Tots mission for an exciting road rally this coming December. This fun and charitable event will happen right on Lakewood Ranch’s Main Street, and we’re teaming up with McGrath’s Irish Ale House to serve great food at the event.


Ed’s And Classic Cars

Since Ed’s Tavern is NOT your typical sports bar, we like to talk about all sorts of cool things that coincide with our patrons' love for sophistication and appreciation of the finer things in life. In our opinion, that includes classic cars. Ed’s doesn’t stick to merely craft beer, wings, and sports; we cover every great novelty.
