Visited for lunch on Halloween to talk business. Will definitely be coming back.
Atmosphere: Cozy and clean joint. Booths, bar tables, TVs - a typical small bar type atmosphere, but well lit and not at all a dive. Nice big chalkboard sign as you walk through the door showing what's on tap. Interesting to see a wide range of people in the place. Father and young college son having lunch, several businessmen, some locals, and a big crowd of friends getting together for an event. Very accommodating.
Quality: Lots of high quality beers available on tap and in bottles in a cooler behind the bar. I did see 1-2 macros, but from what I've seen of this place, it's so they have something for everyone - plenty for those who love craft beers and imports, and also something for someone who just wants a simple US macro lager.
Service: It was very crowded I think unexpectedly so for the staff in the place. There was a large crowd at the tables (a special get together) So while it took quite some time to get served, the waitress hustled as best as she could and took 10% off the bill (with no prompting from us) due to the wait. Beers were served in the proper glasses - Tulips for the Belgian ales, and Nonic glasses for the lagers that were ordered by others in the party.
Selection: I can't remember the wide range of things they had on Tap, but definitely a good range of seasonals, imports, US craft, 1 cider, and 1 macro lager (Labatts). To my surprise, they had on tap Kwak, one of my favorite Belgian ales, which was what I had with lunch. They had quite a bit from Bell's and I think a few choices from Stone, but again, I can't remember. Behind the counter I saw several Lambics, quite a few 22oz bombers, several imports (Weihenstephaner, Sam Smith, Piraat is what I remember). Honestly, something for everyone with the choices they had. I don't think you would be disappointed.
Food: Not a huge selection, but a neat selection of pizza, calzones, and sandwiches. I had the Gyro pizza which was fantastic. I will have to come back and try some more things off the menu.
Price was very good. 4 people, 5 beers, 2 calzones and one large pizza - $53 total.

My absolute favorite place in Dayton to enjoy a craft beer. Always have something new as the taps (18, I think) constantly rotate. Great locally owned place. Small bar but always get a seat somewhere. Side patio is nice if the weather cooperates. Staff are friendly and fun to talk with. Pizzas are the best - I won't order any other pizza in Dayton. Parking has never been an issue.

South Park Tavern is one of the best kept secrets in Dayton. Where else can you get a killer selection of craft beers and Pizza Factory pizza? And on Monday its 1/2 price pizza? Seriously a never miss location. There is always an excellent selection on the tap list and its a part of the growler fill with Thai9, Luckys, et all. VISIT THIS SPOT FOR SURE!!
