Ole Tavern on George St can be found on the National Register of Historic Places.

Our historic 1910 building located on George St in Downtown Jackson has transformed from a Grocery to a Restaurant/Bar in 1973 where many famous musicians have graced Ole Tavern with their talents. We also have lingering ghost who likes to cause mischief from time to time!


In 2008 Jason & Shannon Cockrell purchased the building and renovated to what is now know as Ole Tavern on George St.


We have captured the essences of the South’s unique culinary flair and good Ole Fashioned Home Cooking inspired by the tantalizing flavors from Jackson, MS to New Orleans, LA.

Cuisine ranges from Fried Green Tomatoes, Pimento Cheese Fritters, Seared Tuna Sandwich, King George Burger, Shrimp & Grits, Cajun Gumbo, Red Beans & Rice to Fried Catfish.


We have a very active night life to offer Downtown Jackson and surrounding areas as well as tasty cuisine.
