Chef Steven “Juice” Morrison, a classically trained chef who’s been cheffing in Vail for 20 years met his partner in crime Monica Mattingly, native Kentuckian, who was working an event planner and high end bartender in Vail. Both “foodies” they acheived their dream of opening their own place. Their colaboration not only produced two wonderful little boys Tristan 2 and Dane 3, but also the “Old Kentucky Tavern” was born. The “Old Kentucky Tavern” has the feel of a funky old restaurant in the South.
Located in the 100 year old building at 223 Brodway in Eagle Colrado this little gem of a place offers something for everyone. Delicious southern food, ecclectic melding from Chef’s Juice years of experience, handmade desserts and a bar with over 40 COLORADO BEEERS AND OVER 40 differnt kinds of bourbon. This is a great place for a dae, for the familuy or for anyone looking to have a good ol’ southern meal. We have not only the BEST fried chicken in the vail valley but also wonderful salads, grilled mahi, cedar plank salmon, fried pickles and many things you won’t be able to find anywhere in the Vail Valley.
Stop in for a hand crafted cocktail, a bacon bourbon bloody mary or a delicious meal! We’d love to have you.
