Shaw’s Tavern has officially announced they will open their doors for service while they await word on their liquor license. They will serve “a light breakfast and lunch menu for weekdays from 7 am to 6 pm and a brunch menu on weekends from 9 am to 4pm.

If you’ll recall, Shaw’s Tavern has seen its fair share of drama. Last year the owners served liquor at an event a wee bit prematurely and the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board has deemed the owner “unfit for licensure.” Then there was some back and forth, ultimately ending in Shaw’s Tavern being shut down because their liquor license was denied.

Under new ownership, the Tavern hopes to re-open and become a neighborhood fixture.  Will you be stopping by Shaw’s Tavern? Management seems very excited to become an integral part of the neighborhood!
