Filo's Tavern in Winchester TN   


A newer restaurant in Winchester TN..... I heard a buzz about the place and had to check it out.  At first when I did a google search for Filo Tavern in Winchester I found a quaint pub located in Winchester.. Though it didn't look quite like a new restaurant (in fact rather old), it had great reviews on TripAdvisor.  #5 of 12 restaurants in Winchester.  The only challenge was that if I was expecting a nice dinner out with my lovely spouse, it would be a long drive as this was located in Winchester, UK.

The correct spelling for the newest restaurant in Winchester, TN is Filo's Tavern

Filo's Tavern has created a new restaurant experience next to the movie theater on the Winchester, TN square - on the shores of Tims Ford Lake.  They opened officially on Nov 15, 2022 as the newest of Restaurants on Tims Ford Lake. The owners own a farm in Franklin TN and the tables in Filo's are built from 100 year old + oak trees from their farm that were pushed over in a tornado that came through a few years back. The Tavern moved in the location that originally used to be Jonny T's BBQ.

Filo's Tavern is an upscale restaurant on Winchester Square with pricing which supports its upscale environment, experience and food quality. The types of food are divided into five different categories: Appetizers, salads, burgers and sandwiches, specialties, steak and prime rib.

  • Appetizers include unique offerings such as "Hipster French Fries" which are french fries tossed with truffle salt, bacon, a few types of cheese, with home made catchup.  ** I should probably just stop here and get a few of these as anything with truffles and bacon must be truly awesome.**  Roasted Parmesan Crusted Cauliflower which is served with buttermilk garlic ranch dipping sauce.  Iron Skillet Steak Meatballs which comes with garlic bread. And more....


  • Salads -- there are 8 different salads on the menu as of this writing.  Salads at Filo's Tavern include the traditional salad, Cesar with choice of protein, Steak Salad that comes with a marinated tenderloin, bleu cheese crumbles, bacon (more bacon!), and vegetables.  Many more salads here.
