“GONE OUT OF BUSINESS. New Owners, New Name: "Old Bourbon Room"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Just FYI, no more Ox Lake Tavern, but Andy, the new owner has made some interesting changes and is open for business as the Old Bourbon Room. Had lunch there recently and the food is interesting. Give it a try and decide for yourself.......

“The Ox rocks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

It's just because it's the Ox, food is fine, environment is fine, it's the "Cheers" location of Crosslake. Everyone loves the Ox, because it's the Ox. Under new ownership effective 04-01-13, closed for remodel? Hope they don't change things too much.
