After a nearly three-year hiatus, chef Brian Olenjack is cooking again — this time in northwest Fort Worth at the newly opened restaurant, Eagle Mountain Tavern, on Boat Club Road.

Olenjack’s namesake restaurant in Arlington operated approximately eight years before he parted ways with investors in 2015, and the venue closed shortly thereafter.

Now he’s brought back his signature jumbo Gulf shrimp and creamy grits, along with salads, burgers, sandwiches and several libations made with Texas spirits.

Eagle Mountain Tavern is open daily for lunch and dinner, with a bar menu available late night Thursday through Saturday. Expect live music to come.
