History of Us

2004 Rebels Roost was established by the Crews Family.


2012 KC Spencer, bought Rebels Roost and changed the name to 

The Tailgator Sports Grill.

September 1, 2014 Jeff and Elaine Shumate, became the new owners. Jeff and his family have been playing golf at Greens Folly Golf Course and The Halifax Country Club for many years.  Over the years Jeff and his family would be known to stop by Rebels Roost after playing golf. Once Rebels Roost became The Tailgator Sports Grill, Jeff and his family would still stop by after around of golf for some good food and cold beers.  When Jeff found out that The Tailgator Sports Grill was for sell in June 2014, Jeff could not wait to tell his wife. After a lot of research and planning, Jeff and Elaine loaded up their stuff and within Three month moved to South Boston VA.


​The Tailgator Sports Grill is a common place to socialize with friends and family. It is a good place to enjoy a televised sports game, enjoy great food and a cold beer.
