Raising The Bar Scene

From the top of the Resort’s Tower to a sports fan’s paradise at Turtle Creek Casino, more than a dozen food and beverage outlets await to tempt your taste buds. There’s a perfect fit for every wine lover, beer fanatic, and cocktail aficionado, and we’ve collected some of our favorite spots here.

Beer: Jack’s TaproomJack's Food with Menu
Craft beer lovers unite at the all-new Jack’s Taproom. With 12 taps featuring local and seasonal brews—plus more options available in bottles or cans—you’re sure to find a trusted favorite or a cool new brew.

Pro tip: Don’t miss out on getting an appetizer while you’re at Jack’s! The menu features upscale pub fare like smoked brisket and portabella burgers that pair perfectly with whatever’s on tap.
