Bar
“Across the street from Aviator Smokehouse is the "Tap House". The tap house has a smaller selection of BBQ and a more condensed menu but offers 2 bars, 1 indoor and 1 outdoors. This is a great place to chill on a nice summer night. Live music on occasion​. ”

BBQ Restaurant

“Aviator Brewery is a big draw for many beyond our little town. This restaurant offers good BBQ and my personal favorite is the smoked chicken salad sandwich/wrap! Wash it down with my favorite Aviator Beer called "Devils Tramping Ground". They have a variety of kid-friendly options and its located in a family-friendly area with shops and dessert places nearby. ”
