Beth's love of restaurant work is paired with a love of food and the skills required to prepare it. The changing pace of each day in the restaurant space is something Beth enjoys. She genuinely appreciates the connections she has with staff and guests. She’s particularly gratified by the embrace the Tavern receives from the Dublin community.

MATT GOINGS ★ EXECUTIVE CHEF
Early experimentations in his mother's kitchen while she was at work led to Executive Chef Matt Goings' career. His first line cook job was an extra part-time job meant to help fund a first home. He loved the pace of the kitchen and decided that's what he wanted to do full-time.
While attending the Columbus State Community College Chef Apprentice program, Chef Matt held down a job at 55 on the Boulevard and stayed there for 7-1/2 years working with over 30 excellent chefs.
Over the next thirteen years, he worked and learned at several small Columbus restaurants, worked as sous chef at 55 at Crosswoods then Mitchell's Fish Market. He earned the Executive Chef position at Mitchell's Steakhouse and stayed for over ten years before joining Matt the Miller's Tavern and CLB Restaurants.
His love for cooking is so great that it's something he enjoys with his wife and two boys on his days off along with motorcycling and gardening.
