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.


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