It holds true in every project that the facility is never “our project” but is always the result of our Clients’ dreams. This project is no exception. When Rob and Janet Carroll came to us they had every light fixture, wall covering, bathroom stall (pickup tailgates), urinal (modified kegs), bar stool, and every other detail decided.

Architects: Agora Architectural Design
Status: Built

They simply needed an architect to put together a functional floor plan and exterior envelope to bring it all together in one facility. Utilizing the old train station on the corner of 5th and Main in Winfield, we designed facilities for a state-of-the-art kitchen, two-story restroom and exit stair addition, lobby entrance addition to the existing, and incorporated our clients’ plans for a balcony and patio.

The pictures don’t lie, you are only feet from the train tracks, but it only adds to the dining experience. From the trays you eat on, to the fixtures over your table, to the nails in the floor – Rob Carroll and his crew made every detail perfect. Of course, the food is amazing too. All-in-all this is a must-see place in Winfield.
