Shaw's Tavern

For its name, Shaw's Tavern can thank Robert Gould Shaw, the Civil War colonel of the African-American 54th Regiment and a major subject in the 1989 film Glory. Above the tavern's intricately carved paneled door, a likeness of the colonel on horseback appears on a Union blue sign, framing the handsome brick façade in an air of patriotism and old-timey charm. Inside, guests belly up to a knotty timber bar top and grind fresh pepper over plates of fried catfish and chicken and waffles. Burgers and pulled pork sandwiches pair nicely with cold beers, and charcuterie plates, red velvet french toast, and shrimp and grits make for hearty brunches.


Great cocktail selections, great food, and great vibe. I really liked the chill atmosphere and the wood interior.

Shaw's Tavern reminds me of what I miss most about the South: rich, complex flavors in unpretentious, straightforward, downright good eats.

    “Good atmosphere. My shrimp and grits were very good. The rest of the table was not as happy with the food but it was good enough. Our waiter was fine but the severs kept trying to deliver foods that was meant for other fibers. ”
