A local favorite, The White Oak Tavern is a great place for drinking and celebrating. White Oak offers a range of over 40 craft beers on tap, giving them one of the best selections around, and on Tuesdays there’s a burger and free pint night starting at 7PM. They always have a new selection of local microbrews like Flying Dog and Heavy Seas on tap as well. During their brunch, they serve bottomless cocktails with your brunch meal. Don’t be fooled by the fact that White Oak is located inside a shopping mall; the interior is sleek, modern and classy.
