RIVER FALLS -- After nearly 50 years as Bo’s ‘N Mine, the location at 110 Main St., is getting a new start as Nutty Squirrel Sports Saloon.
The restaurant has been completely remodeled, with new walls, flooring, mechanical and electrical. Andrew Schmitz, who owned Bo’s ‘N Mine, said he had been wanting to do a remodel for a while.
“I waited for the right time,” he said.
The building was outdated and in need of repairs, Schmitz said. He didn’t want to do just small repairs to keep it running, but instead wanted to do a full-blown change. “And do it right,” he added.
People who walk in feel like they’re in a new place, he said. The ceilings have been opened to the rafters. TVs now line the wall around the bar -- 24 in total. A new theme encompasses the rustic, country look with wagon wheel chandeliers, fun props, new booths, a windmill and reclaimed wood beams from hundred-year old barn.
