Old bar that has been beautifully kept up. Big beer selection and good food. They also have rooms you can reserve for private parties.

Our first time in Kewanee and didn't know where to eat, this restaurant was great, we had nachos and salad. The place we crowded so we sat at the bar a few minutes, great beer selection and good service.

Everything tastes fresh made! The burgers are huge and they have a variety of options. The dinner entrees are way better than you would expect from a bar and Grill, favorite is the Salmon!

Wonderful wait staff. Excellent quality entrees. The Burgers were cooked to perfection. HUGE handmade Onion Rings. COLD draft beer with many to choose from. Great atmosphere and the longest bar you'll ever see. The walls are hand painted and beautiful!

Ate here for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is located in an old building where they kept the original materials. The floor, made of wide boards, is awesome! Beautiful setting! The special was a chicken caesar salad wrap and it was...More

Have to know where to look as this restaurant/bar is off the main drag. The interior is much nicer than the exterior as it is very historic and industrial. Food was great, especially the scrimp scampi dip!

Retiree golf group went here after a cold day on the course. Warmed up quickly by the friendly greeting upon walking in. Food was very good and priced reasonably. Nice atmosphere. Will definitely go back next time there.
