Some people think local watering holes are dead and gone. Not true and I am here to tell you that Will Henry’s Tavern, located at 1228 Rockbridge Road in Stone Mountain, Georgia, is the place you can go where everybody knows your name. The night I went to Will Henry’s there was a terrific band playing. The place is not large as far as size goes but what it lacks in size it makes up for in “good times and great food.”
The bar offers free pool daily every day until 6:00 p.m. and is biker friendly. They all hang out and watch Football on Monday nights. Tuesdays is the 9-ball tournament at 7:30 and free pool all night. On Wednesday’s they offer a Rib Eye dinner and live music. On Thursday nights there is Trivia at 7:00 p.m. and Karaoke at 9:00 p.m. They kick off the weekends by bringing you live bands on Friday nights. The music starts at 9:00 p.m. On Saturdays they have college football all afternoon and Karaoke at 9:00 p.m. On Sunday’s depending on the season the bar features Football and or Nascar.
They have a pretty good menu for a bar. They offer a variety of appetizers such at a basket of fries, chili and cheddar or you can get the loaded. Loaded means smothered with cheddar, bacon, chili and onions and sour cream. The loaded potatoes cost $5.75 and everything else less than loaded is under five dollars. They have onion rings, potato skins chips and salsa and chips and Queso. You can also get loaded nachos, which are nachos with chili, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onions and sour cream. The mozzarella cheese sticks are delicious and so are the beer battered mushrooms. My friend had the Jalapeno Poppers and said they were great. If you can’t make up your mind on what you want you can get the sampler 2 for $6.50 or the sampler 3 for $7.50. You can order a basket of chicken tenders served with fries for $6.50. You can get that in Buffalo style or you can get a combo basket which is tenders, fries, onion rings, mushroom and cheese sticks for $8.95 which is huge and a delicious bargain. If you want something heartier you can order BBQ Pork or Stew. They do have a patron favorite, which is their famous Chili. A cup of chili is $3.50 and a bowl of chili is $4.95. You can order wings or a burger or a hot dog. You can get a roast beef, grilled cheese, ham and cheese, a bacon lettuce or tomato or a club platter. If you want a hot sandwich the French dip platter is the way to go. They offer of course the popular chicken sandwich.
This is an all-round fun place to go for a nice dinner, drinks and live music on a Friday night. I would recommend Will Henry’s Tavern to my friends and I will go back again.
