Our founders, Neil Glass & Blaine Santos, had an idea to create a restaurant that was more than a place that served great food.
Neil Glass has since parted ways with Blaine Santos and has created a new partnership with Jeneca Kretchman and Steve Hubble who share the same passion of good food, great service and an awesome bar program. Smokey Oaks Tavern continues to a be place where our community feels at home. A place where our team can provide no-nonsense food at down-to-earth prices, and where our guests are treated right by people who had a passion to serve.
The culture at the Smokey Oaks Tavern was instilled by Neil, Jeneca and Steve's long before a mission statement was ever written down on paper and is still evident today. At the Smokey Oaks Tavern, guests, team members and community are all treated with respect.
Neil is Cicerone® Certified Beer Servers, tested for his knowledge of the characteristics, flavor attributes, and history of various beer styles, beer tasting and evaluation, and the proper storage and serving of beer.
