This tavern was the site of a 1952 murder that took place right inside these local doors. This murder inspired a book and a movie called Anatomy of a Murder, which featured Jimmy Stewart. Scenes from this Hollywood film were shot inside this tavern where you can witness the body outline still on the wooden floor.
Also, this tavern is known to be the birthplace of the “Big Bay Shuffle.” No one tells the story better than Jeff Daniels who is known to occasionally stop in. Stop in for a cold drink, warm food, and a step back into history.
