Woodlake Tavern is a relaxed neighborhood restaurant & event space focused on comfort food, craft cocktails, and great hospitality. Co-owned by husband and wife team, Chef Deneb Williams and Sommelier Elizabeth-Rose Mandalou, and their partner David Hardy.
Woodlake Tavern offers a comfortable dining experience highlighting elevated barbecue, in-house slow roasted meats, freshly made pasta, seafood, and fresh seasonal local ingredients. Woodlake Tavern opened in January 2017 with the intention of supporting the growing Woodlake and North Sacramento areas, and serving amazing food, wine, and drinks without all the fuss. We think great service can be relaxed and friendly, food can be mouth watering and craveable, families can come for dinner or brunch, locals can come for happy hour and seasonal live music, and out of owners will always be treated like family.
We are happy to be here in Woodlake, and we invite you to stop in 6 days a week and become part of our Woodlake Tavern Family.
