Description: Est. 1932, Traverse City's 2nd Oldest Tavern, started as a hot dog stand with curb side service, outdoor seating, annual ritual of making sauerkraut, and a Speak Easy in the basement. One evening the owner was held up by a couple of Capone’s men, warning him he’d better get his liquor from Capone or else! They were chased off by an employee who was able to sneak to his truck and get his shotgun. Located in the heart of “Little Bohemia” the original owner named it in honor of the Bohemian community; expansions in 1933 and 1947 made it an icon and a premier destination in the city’s West End District. It also basks in the glory of Sir Walter Hagen. The golf legend made a daily stop to “hold court”, play bumper pool and have a few drinks. He lovingly referred to it as his “home away from home.” In 1961, Arnold Palmer won his 1st British Open win; he received a “congratulations” call from Walter Hagen; the call was made from Little Bohemia. Stop by and take in some great local history!

Oh, my goodness! I walked into the restaurant and fell in love with its ambiance. Then, the very pleasant waitress brought the menu. The selections on the menu made choosing a meal difficult. The food! The Food! THE FOOD! The food was excellent. Not only was my food excellent, but my friend's beef stroganoff was magnificent. This is the place to be if one is looking for warmth, atmosphere and excellent food.

On the back of the menu is the rich history of the restaurant. We met the daughter of the last owner and she possessed a beautiful spirit. Musicians were setting up as we were leaving. I sure would have liked to hear them play. Great place to go when in the area.

Loved this local place, friendly staff, good beer choices, and good food. I enjoyed the Olive Burger - what a great idea. The place located is at the edge of downtown with easy parking.
