The Player's Retreat

Let's raise a glass to this year's winners of the Wine Spectator awards. And no, that's not a typo: The Players' Retreat, long known as a burgers 'n' brews joint, has been polishing its act of late and is indeed a newcomer to the list. drop in and check out the changes.


On February 27, 1951, Bernie and Mickey Hanula founded the institution known as the Players’ Retreat. Less of a bar and restaurant, and more of a family, the PR (as it is affectionately known) remains a popular respite for the young and old, the rich and poor. It is a place where people from all walks of life rub elbows, share toasts, good times, and laughs.

At 60 years old, very little has changed since its humble beginnings. In 1994, Pete Jarrell took over the PR and continued the tradition. Our friends Bernie and Mickey passed away several years ago. In their honor, our staff and our patrons strive to keep the PR the way it always has been and as it should always be. Thank you for your patronage and support over the years and may the PR continue for another 60 years.
