The Fayette County Chamber of Commerce recently awarded The Rusty Keg Tavern, 1801 Columbus Ave. in Washington C.H., with a plaque to commemorate five years in business.
Owners Brian and Kelly Pettit opened the doors to their family-friendly tavern on Aug. 23, 2010 and have specialized in fresh, homemade food with all natural ingredients. They and their staff of roughly 20 take pride in grinding their own hamburger, hand breading chicken tenders and chunks, and slicing fresh ribeyes for Philly steaks. The Keg, as it is commonly known, offers indoor and outdoor dining, catering and banquet services both at the business and off site.
“It’s hard to believe it’s been five years already. Seems like it’s only been about two,” said Brian Pettit. “It still amazes me, you open the door every day and don’t know what to expect, but people show up every day. We even have people drive from Wilmington, Chillicothe and other areas just to eat. We thank everyone for coming in.”
