About Us

There is something far more delicious than apples that grew up here in Holland, or the cattle that eats Ohio grass. It is the support of the men and women that nurture, tend, and care for them. Buying local keeps our money here, working hard for our community. It’s a cycle of replenishing our culture and paying forward for generations to come in the place that we call home. Where we shop, where we eat and where we have fun -- all of it, makes our community home. We believe that our one-of-a-kind restaurant is an integral part of the distinctive character of Toledo.

"...for how much love I have for this school [The University of Toledo], and for the community and what they've done for me through my career, I wanted to give back. I wanted to be on campus and bring a good spot for the community and the university to love. I want people to feel special, because they belong, because this is their place just as much as it is my place." - Bruce Gradkowski

Check out our rooms for your private parties.

Wine Room

Wine Room

Ideal for your intimate dining experiences whether it is a private business meeting or a loved one’s birthday party. Around our large family style table, a group of 10-14 guests will enjoy a secluded dining experience with limited distractions. With isolated access to multimedia (audio & video) inside the room, your guests can access streamed content through WiFi or AppleTV depicted on our 47” mirror-finish LED HDTV.

Media Room

Media Room

We have designed our restaurant to accommodate multiple sized parties. Catering to events from 30 to 80 people, our large media room boasts a great venue for medical conferences, bridal showers, and rehearsal dinners. Great for power-point presentations, our 110” multimedia wall will simplify the experience for your guests. In addition to streaming content through WiFi and AppleTV this room also offers a direct HDMI connection.



With all comforts in mind, whether sun or shade, you’ll find a more casual experience submersed in our plush courtyard-style patio. With the sun setting, indulge and relax with a bottle of wine by the radiant fireplace. We occasionally feature local acoustic artists to enhance the outdoor ambiance. You can follow us on social media to stay informed of upcoming performance dates.
