Kiel Progress briefs 2012
Central House offers full menu

Koehring’s Grand Central House is a beautifully restored historical Victorian hotel in Kiel now serving as a restaurant offering a full menu.

Steaks, seafood, ribs, chicken and vegetarian entrees are available at Koehring’s Grand Central House. The full bar is a reproduction of the original front desk of the hotel, and diners can view a building filled with antiques and historic memorabilia.

Nightly dinner specials include the Wednesday night steak and lobster for $19.95. Unique, intimate dining continues to be available in the 53-foot high tower.

The building was constructed in 1892 and has been operated by Connie Brost and Fred Lubeley since 1989. When it was built it served as a gentleman’s hotel and has been in continuous operation since then. Connie and Fred first operated it as a bar and grill. In 2001 they restored the building and began operation as a restaurant.

The menu at Koehring’s Grand Central House was revamped a few months ago offering more vegetarian and “comfort food” entrees. New nightly specials include Date Night Tuesday, Ladies Night Thursday and Sunday Shrimp Night.

Connie said everyone at Koehring’s Grand Central House is important to the operation, including Phil...referring to former owner Phillip Mueller, whose spirit is believed by some to be hanging around the establishment.

Koehring’s Grand Central House is a recipient of the Manitowoc County Historical Preservation Award.

Koehring’s is located at 602 Fremont St. For more information stop in, call 894-7630,e-mail,or check out
