Tavern on the Square: F'ville to get long-awaited eatery

The Fayetteville Planning & Zoning Commission last week agreed to recommend that revised elevation plans for the Olde Courthouse Tavern at 105 South Glynn Street be approved. The new business on the courthouse square could open in October.

Property owner Larry Graves said Tuesday the 2,000-square-foot Olde Courthouse Tavern will be outfitted like an old English tavern, complete with exposed beams and exposed brick. The business will feature a diverse menu that caters to an atmosphere of upscale, casual dining and will come with a full bar.

Senior Planner Linwood Robinson said the plan request included exterior renovations that would consist of rebuilding the front facade and portions of the rear facade of the structure to restore the original look based on historic photographs of the property.

The site is part of the downtown square and subject to the architectural and preservation guidelines of the Main Street District, Robinson said.

Graves said he hopes to have the building ready for an early October opening.

Is this going into the old Travis Hardware building or on the southside of the square between the Jewerly store and the insurance store?

No, it's next door to the old Travis Hardware Bldg.

No it is southwest of the 14 times re-modelled gold store and northeast of the old mall where tax paid citizens now work, and east west of the jail and library. Aren't the steaks expensive--or is it just another bar?
Isn't a insurance office and office instead of a store? What do they store?

The newly opened Courthouse Tavern is a wonderful addition to Fayette County and to downtown Fayetteville. Located directly west of the old county courthouse building, owner Larry Graves has combined good food with a very warm interesting environment. They beer, wine and liquor including such favorites as Stella and Sierra Nevada pale ale on tap and Woodford Reserve bourbon (some of my favorites). The furniture and decor were specially made.

It is a very nice presentation. Good job Fayetteville and Mr. Graves.

Ate at the new Tavern at the courthouse square. Food was mediocre at best - fried green tomatoes very greasy. The rest of the food was nothing special and over-priced. Good selection of beer, but nothing that I can't buy at the store. Won't be going back.
