In 1947 Joe and Lottie Czech built and opened the "Check Inn". At that time, it was only opened with a limited menu and limited hours until Joe passed away. Then, Lottie only opened occasionally until the early 1980's.
Then, in 1989 Jim & Marje Peters decided to relocate back to the area Jim grew up in and open a tavern and Restaurant. This was Jim’s lifetime dream. After considering many locations, Jim and Marje fell in love with the Check Inn’s “50’s” style booths and mahogany bar. They reopened the Check Inn and renamed it Pour Jim's Check Inn. Marje launched the kitchen bringing with her cooking expertise which she learned coming from a large family with old family style recipes. Jim brought with him his experience as an Army cook and, in his younger years, his experience in diners and soda shops. However, Jim doesn't spend much time in the kitchen anymore except for menu planning, equipment purchases and repairs. His place is behind the bar where you’ll see him most nights telling jokes and handing out lollipops to the kids.
Although the décor is “50’s” style, the atmosphere and the food are not. There is an extensive menu, anything from the Famous Chicken Wings (Marje's secret recipe) to Prime Rib. They are always looking for new ideas for the menus and specials to please the crowds. Although the “50’s” theme has stayed intact, the atmosphere has been updated for all ages. Jim’s love for video games has impressed the kids at Pour Jim’s and you may notice Jim’s love for sports by some of the added décor. Pour Jim's has become the meeting place for the locals, sports enthusiasts, families and seasonal visitors.
This year they will be celebrating 22 years of serving good food and spirits at reasonable prices. Pour Jim’s is also proud to be a local contributor to the community, giving to charities, benefits and assisted in fundraising over the last 22 years.
So come join us for a burger, a football game or just a cocktail.
