Welcome to Our Kitchen!

From soup to nuts, The Gamekeeper's Tavern has it all.

 

THIS WAY TO FINE DINING

Before the first glass of wine arrives at the table, the eyes have already begun to feast.  The plates, the flatware, the linens, and glassware all influence the experience of a meal to be remembered.  The old adage about first impressions has become increasingly more true with today's savvy diners.  With it's rustic mountain elegance and sophisticated casual style, the setting and ambiance at The Gamekeeper's Tavern will thrill even the most critical diners.  The menu focuses on fresh game and fish, but has offerings for even the pickiest of palates.  Chef Allen Spivey along with his sous chef Allan Mustarde focus on locally sourced ingredients and change seasonally.  Come in and join us for a uniquely delicious farm to table experience.
