Welcome to the Tavern Smokehouse!

Hello there and Welcome!  We are John and Sherri Buchanan - the owners of The Tavern Smokehouse!


Originally from the St. Louis area, we decided to move to the Lake for some much needed peace and quiet. When we first arrived three years ago, we felt welcomed and at home in the community. So, having been in the restaurant game for over 25 years, we decided we would set up camp permanently with a new restaurant - The Tavern at Trails End.  After a very successful year, we decided to open ANOTHER restaurant so we started the Tavern Smokehouse!   We enjoy meeting people and want our customers to feel comfortable from the moment they enter!  We hope you enjoy the outside patio while you enjoy our house-smoked meats and delicious home-made sides!   Please make sure to let us know if we can help you out in any way.  We look forward to greeting each and every one of you and hope to see you often - because 

Life Needs More Barbeque and Beer!
