About Us


We have not always been Old Whitten Tavern (OWT). In 1981 Charlie Grisham opened Goodtime Charlie’s on Old Summer Road. The establishment was small, friendly, and possessed one kick-ass pizza – ‘The Charlie’s Special’. It was simple, it consisted of six popular ingredients that have withstood the test of time. In 2007 Ronnie and Bonnie Coletta took over Goodtime Charlie’s and they continued to use the recipe for business success that was set forth by Charlie Grisham. Ronnie and Bonnie have been an integral part in our transformation to Old Whitten Tavern.

As of 2020 – 2021 OWT has taken on new challenges and a remodel. We are in the process of new paint, new decore and getting new menu in place. Please be patient as we try to bring a new and better OWT to everyone. Limited hours for now but hopefully soon we can be open more. We are smoke-free, all ages welcome & look forward to seeing you all.
