White Oak Tavern • $$ ★4.4/5
White Oak Tavern is named after the tall white oak trees of Kentucky, and inspired by the art of the cooper, who carefully handcrafts each cask to protect and enhance the flavors of the famed Bluegrass region’s sweetest bounty: bourbon.
In both food and drink, we preserve the rustic traditions and fares of the “olde” tavern, somewhat lost by the passing of the Volstead Act of 1919. Our scratch kitchen offers a wide variety of American fare with a slow foods emphasis and a nod to things past. The seasonally-changing menu represents forgotten cooking skills and time-honored techniques, and features local ingredients sourced from many of the small, family-run farms in the tri-state area.
Our offerings are best shared amongst friends with selections from our craft beer, wine, and cocktail lists. In true tavern tradition, we pride ourselves on a delicate care for our craft and a warm, friendly smile to all we welcome in our door.
