Burntwood Tavern Restaurant Review

: With restored barn beams, rustic copper detailing, rich leather furniture and a glowing fire in the hearth, the well-executed interior of Burntwood Tavern helps to set the stage for a hearty, straightforward menu. If you’re looking for good bar food, a solid cocktail list and a chummy atmosphere, this is the place. Start with the Tavern tater tots served with a creamy artichoke fondue. Then opt for either the cedar salmon served with an oven-dried tomato vinaigrette and blistered asparagus or the pork chop paired with a spicy-sweet peach jalapeño preserve. Desserts are handcrafted and change frequently. If you’re craving a sweet finish without a fork, we suggest skipping that final course and instead washing down your dinner with one of the Tavern’s local features, like the Tavern VIP martini served dirty with Gorgonzola-stuffed olives.
