The Ritual Tavern

I love this place. The Ritual Tavern is a place you can go to relax, enjoy a good beer or a glass of wine, and enjoy some good comfort food.  You don't have to scream to your server to place your order, you could actually have a conversation with someone. It is appropriately dim, mellow, and everyone is friendly and cool.

Some of my favorite food items from the menu;

The house onion rings - Ale battered, served with house remoulade - I also love their house made ketchup.

Fish and Chips - Domestic farm-raised catfish with house cut fries and coleslaw - you would never guess it is catfish, very light and still delicious.

Shrimp Scampi - Garlic, butter, sherry and ciabatta bread, yummmmmy!

Sadlebrush Gumbo - Jidori chicken, mexican shrimp, niman's andouille sausage organic long-grain wild rice- I haven't actually tried this yet, but it is top of my list for the next visit!

The servers and bartenders are always super cool and happy to pour you a taste of a new beer  before you buy a whole glass. They keep the selection interesting and feature lots of  local craft breweries.

They have happy hour specials Tuesday thru Saturday from 5:30 to 7:30, and on Sundays you can take advantage of specials from 3:30 to 9:30.
