Ole Tavern on George St.

Posted by YAR 23 Jun 2010 No Comments


The Ole Tavern (416 George St, Jackson) manages to have a good bar atmosphere and a good restaurant atmosphere at the same time.  It has a pub-like feel, with a lot of dark wood and brick, plus high ceilings and big windows.  I appreciate that the place feels like it’s trying without trying too hard.


Despite the photo above, it was bustling when we went for lunch on a Tuesday; only the bar was empty.  My coworker ordered the King George’s Burger from the specials board.  It was huge, and came with a fried egg, bacon, jalapenos, lots of cheese, and a slightly sweet bun that I really liked.  I only had a bite of the burger, and I tasted the other components more than the burger itself, but I loved the whole package and so did my coworker.  The seasoned fries, which were thin and very crispy, seemed battered or double fried, which is always a plus.


I got the red beans and rice, also on the specials board.  It had a little bit of spice, but not quite enough for me—I liked it better after adding several squirts of Louisiana hot sauce. I wouldn’t say it was a stand-out example of rice and beans, but it was definitely a solid and enjoyable one.


I could see the Ole Tavern becoming one of my favorite Jackson bars, thanks to the food and the pleasant vibe.  They’re open Mon-Fri, 11am-2am, and Saturday 5pm-2am; the number is (601) 960-2700.
