Our Story

Welcome to Meadows Avenue Tap! It's hard to believe that Rich purchased Bill and Mary's, and first opened the business on February 10, 2006. It was a major leap of faith, a lot of belief and confidence that he could do it and a lot of nights spent on the office couch. It used to be the place to catch the latest band and entertainment.

In May of 2016 Rich and Jessica tied the knot. We blended families and our hearts grew even bigger for the family business. These days Meadows has been the place to catch the hottest slots in town and the best plates served up this side of the river! As our family grew, Meadows started to become a place where you could take your kids to grab a bite to eat, play some pinball, and watch the latest game with your family during the day.

Our nightlife is still top notch and our customers keep winning big at the slots! In 2020 we started doing major renovations and completely overhauled our kitchen.We are now able to serve amazing culinary delights at the Tap! 2021, brought us another major surprise, our daughter Mallory Alice. We now officially have yours, mine, and ours. We are truly blessed with the greatest staff that has become family to us, and the best customers ever!

We are proud supporters of TAPS and St. Jude. Please feel at home at Meadows Avenue Tap, enjoy some terrific food and a cold brew. We appreciate you supporting our small, family business so very much. We hope to pass on our hard work to our future generations and keep the legacy of Meadows going.
