Crow Bar is back, and rolling out new menu

COURTLAND — After an extensive rebuilding project following a fire that destroyed the former establishment several years ago, The Crow Bar and Grill re-opened on U.S. Highway 14 in Courtland last August.

General Manager Jess Johansen said extensive information about the business can be found on its Facebook site.

The establishment is advertised as a “local hangout with great value, fun atmosphere, chic decor and friendly bartenders.

Some of the Crow Bar and Grill’s more popular promotions include free food including ice cream cones for children on Mondays.

Clients that wear jerseys or apparel of teams that win a game while the wearers are at the Crow Bar and Grill can receive a free beverage.

“People really love our burgers and traditional (chicken) wings with Sriracha Sauce,” Johansen said.

“We’re about to roll out our full menu,” Johansen said. “We’ll have a lot more sandwiches, hot dips, shrimp, steak, meatball subs, soups and vegan options. Omelets will be added to our breakfast menu. Happy Hour will be 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.”

Beverage offerings include a dozen rotating tap beer options including many Schell’s Brewery products, domestic bottled beer and mixed drinks.

That’s not all that’s new.

“We’ll have karaoke one or two times a month on Friday or Saturday night and more live bands on weekends,” Johansen said. “There is also a lot of interest in bean bags. We plan to start leagues this year.”

With Bockfest at Schell’s Brewery coming up, Johansen said all Bockfest buses are welcome at the Crow Bar and Grill.

“We’ve had people coming back to the Crow Bar and Grill from as far away as Rochester after they heard we re-opened,” Johansen said. “We’ve got people coming from for our liver and onions from as far away as Redwood Falls.”

According to the Crow Bar and Grill Facebook site, waffle fries with seasoned sour cream and buffalo chicken wraps are other favorites.

Popular sandwiches include chili and grilled cheese with tomato soup and a hopped-up Sloppy Joe of sorts with a toasted bun with thick chili and cheddar in the middle.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday into Sunday morning and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday.
