Live, from Peoria, Illinois, it’s Saturday Night, starring this week’s host, The Tartan Inn, featuring special guest stars, Michelle, Bob, Pam, Dayna, Kirk, Amanda, Craig, Joe and we’re happy to introduce the new owner of Tartan Inn, Ashley!
Now please welcome, from West Peoria, The Tartan Inn!
It’s a grand re-opening party at The Tartan Inn tonight. The celebration is over the fact that this classic West Peoria tavern is under new ownership!
We’ll meet the new owner shortly, but first say hello to Bob and Pam! I ran into Bob a while back at the Country Club BBQ and he reminded me that he was featured in a People of Peoria article back in the day and whomp there’s the article!
Bob was the former owner of Pacers Pizza, where Khaki Jack’s is located now! Great to see both of them!
As I get ready to enter the newly-owned tavern I see a trio of familiar faces, from left: Michelle, Dayna and Kirk! Michelle invited me here tonight and now let’s go in and join the party!
There’s some seats at the bar, so let’s go snag one. Amanda is pouring drinks behind the bar and here’s the new owner of The Tartan Inn, Ashley with her boyfriend Joe!
Congratulations on the new ownership, Ashley!
There’s an impressive beer list, but I decided to stick with my old Buddy Weiser and there’s Amanda serving it up with her pretty smile!
They’re serving up food on Saturdays and Sundays now and here’s the menu, keep on scrolling to see what I ordered. That’s Craig who’s going to be cooking up our Saturday night sandwich!
There’s a half a dozen of the beers on tap, a shot of the back of the bar and tables line the wall opposite the bar with a view of West Peoria through the windows.
I love the colorful arches at the corners of the bar!
They’ve got new t-shirts to celebrate Ashley’s ownership and there’s Michelle showing off one of them hanging at the bar.
A state of the art dart board stands over there in the corner nearby a row of gaming machines. They have live music here on Thursdays and Sundays and they are open every single night of the week from 11am to 2am! The fun never stops at The Tartan Inn!
Michelle told me to check out the Men’s Room for a fun surprise and when I entered I saw that they’ve sealed old drink chips on the floor! How cool
It also made for a perfect time for an obligatory bathroom mirror shot. So there!
Meanwhile, back at the bar, dinner is served up by Ashley!
I got the pork chop sandwich with grilled onions and Craig cooked it perfectly! It was juicy, tasty and the bun was grilled, warm and bakery fresh! A delicious Saturday night sandwich!
