A print of local artist Marvin Cone's 1945 painting graces the bar, as well as the menu covers.

Saturday afternoons can get busy as the faithful regulars check in. Proprietor Jeff Melsha is slowly rebuilding the collection of neighborhood and packinghouse memorabalia, and he or the staff will be glad to point out the 8-foot high-water mark from the Cedar River's June 2008 flood.
