Owners, Sara & Jason Barstow, were both born and raised in rural Minnesota. They take pride in working hard and caring for their family, friends, and community. They rehabbed a building that had been closed since 2011, investing everything they had into the American dream.

Most importantly, they want to make sure everyone walking through the door is able to enjoy the shore with some laughs, cocktails, and amazing food.
