The Twisted Tail features an extensive array of bourbons and whiskeys as well as expertly sourced craft beer and delicious homespun craft cocktails by restaurateur George Reilly. Chef Leo Forneas executes a diverse menu of contemporary cuisine with a hint of Southern accent that is perfect for sharing and enjoying. 509 S.

AnnouncementGet in the spirit for National Scotch Day this Friday, July 27th at Headhouse Square’s The Twisted Tail.


For one day only, the Southern-inspired restaurant and Juke Joint will exchange the bourbon in their $15 Burger, Beer & Bourbon special for Famous Grouse Scotch, a well-balanced blended scotch whisky. The special is available at the bar or on the patio during Social Hour from 5-7 PM on Friday. 

For those on a liquid diet (like me), flights of bourbon, scotch and beer will also be available — a beverage trifecta featuring Four Roses Small Batch, Pig’s Nose Scotch and Barrel-Aged Beer for $15. Can’t make it Friday? The flight is available everyday on the regular menu.

Private Dining - For guests looking to really personalize their events, The Twisted Tail offers customizable food and bar packages to make the gathering unique. The Southern-inspired contemporary American cuisine can adapt event menus to specific tastes and preferences. Guests can either begin with stationary appetizers for a more formal feeling or start with passed cocktail hors d’oeuvres and a dinner buffet for a more casual dining experience.
