Stockfeeder’s Club in Morrill

August 19, 2011

Last month, Bugman and I were headed home on Highway 26 late on a Friday evening. We were hungry and noticed that the Stockfeeder’s Club lights were still on, so we decided to stop for a bite to eat.

The outside of the building is quaint.

According to the back of the menu, the building was constructed in August 1946 with two apartments above a cafe and confectionery. It closed in September 1947 for “remodeling and repairs” (after only one year?) and reopened as a members-only club.

The restaurant is open to the public now, but I wasn’t so sure when we first walked in. The front part of the building was dark and musty-smelling the evening we stopped in. The bar to the left had turned into a catchall for clutter. There was a large family party dining at one table towards the rear of the front room. A couple who had entered the restaurant just before us apparently knew how things worked, as they proceeded immediately towards the brightly lit back room, which is adjacent to the kitchen. We hesitated at the entrance for a bit until we were welcomed to come back and have a seat.

Once we were seated, we started to feel right at home. The couple working the restaurant was super friendly.

Bugman attempted to order the evening’s special – was it prime rib? – but the waitress chuckled. They had quickly sold out of that cut of meat, as they do every Friday night. You have to come early if you want some.

He settled for a different cut of beef instead, with fresh grilled mushrooms and oven-roasted potato.

I’d had too much beef that week, so I ordered walleye, with vegetables that were seasoned with the same salty blackening rub used on the fish.

The meals included salads, too.

The food was filling enough that we were forced to turn down the offer to try some homemade pie for dessert. (Too bad. It sounded good.)

Stockfeeder’s Club is at 204 Center Avenue, north of Highway 26 in the heart of Morrill. 308-247-2205.

    At least you had some color on your entree plate. Not so sure about Bugman’s 😉
