|Smoked Grilled Pork Chops|
Let’s begin with one of The Burntwood Tavern’s signature dishes, their Smoked Grilled Pork Chops. These large pork chops soak in brine for 24 hours then smoked to give it a subtle smoky element, then finally grilled for that perfect sear. The chops are topped with peach jalapeno preserves and served with hand cut sweet potato fries and sugar snap peas. The taste of the pork combined with the sweetness of the peach preserves, and a subtle smokiness, creates flavors you’ll return for on a regular basis.

I am a big fan of appetizers and The Burntwood Tavern’s Calamari should be acclaimed for its lightly breaded tender seafood. A generous portion of Calamari is served with cherry peppers and a tangy homemade pomodoro sauce. Other starters include Hummus, pumpkin ravioli, “fish sticks” made with beer battered COD, flash fried zucchini frites, cheese stuffed Angus beef sliders and more. Check out their menu for their entire selection of starters, salads, sandwiches and featured dishes.
As challenging as it is to save room for dessert with so many delicious savory options, I recommend you try in order to sample some luxurious sweet treats. The Tavern Ice Cream Sandwich is made with raspberry chocolate ice cream, stuffed between cocoa Belgian waffles, drizzled with chocolate and topped with homemade whipped cream. The tavern cheesecake is also made in-house, or try their white chocolate cherry bread pudding. Yum!
If I was using a rating system, I’d have to give The Burntwood Tavern all the stars I had to give. They offer outstanding food, outstanding service and an outstanding environment to be enjoyed by all who visit.
