Americana Bar & Grill open in Lebanon

LEBANON — A new locally owned restaurant, Americana Bar & Grill, opened Thursday, Feb. 20, at 1206 W. South St. in Lebanon.

Warehouse Bar & Grille, previously in that location, closed last year and the staff disbursed.

Co-owners Jennifer Bowman and Ricky Bardoles were both Warehouse employees who wanted to bring a similar restaurant back to the city. They are doing it with the help of a third co-owner, Sonny Singh.

“Everybody is quitting their jobs and coming back,” Bowman said, while prepping the restaurant for its opening. “This is a community restaurant. I’ve seen families grow, seen pregnant women give birth and have seen that kid turn 1, 2, 3. I missed that.”

Bowman said the menu is largely the same with a few tweaks. It will feature prime rib and a selection of fresh fish, like hand-breaded catfish. There will also be local beers on tap.

“It’s going to be something,” Bowman said. “My Facebook has blown up with messages. Everybody wants to come back to work or come back to eat here.”

About a dozen former employees were hired back as Americana employees, Bowman said.

The restaurant’s decor has been redesigned to focus more on families. There is a Captain America poster up, with his red, white and blue shield. The shield is featured on the menus, tying together the America theme.

“It’s just fun,” Bowman said. “My No. 1 thing is feeding families.”

They are working on a deal for families who come in to eat after local sporting events, she added.

The restaurant will open at 11 a.m. each day, closing at 10 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 9 p.m. Sundays. Sunday’s menu will feature brunch items.

A grand opening celebration was held last week at the restaurant.
