Oakhurst Tea Room
Dating back to the days of the Whiskey Rebellion and travel along the Glades Pike, Oakhurst Tea Room earned it's name as a cover for a venue used by gentlemen to escape the restrictions of prohibition. It is told that illegal liquor would be masked by being served in tea pots, thus gaining notoriety as the 'tea room'. Today it is a bustling restaurant offering a tempting Smorgasbord Buffet and much more.
