If you’re looking for a dinner spot traveling through Grand Island look no farther than the Chicken Coop. It’s a sports bar and microbrewery with a laid back atmosphere that you expect from central Nebraska. It’s owned by Thunderhead Brewing based in Kearney and offers over ten different beers on tap that are either brewed right there or in the brewery in Kearney. They offer a full menu, craft beer, root beer and cream soda made in house and a beer garden for those of you who prefer to eat outdoors.
Located right in historic downtown Grand Island, the Chicken Coop is right across the street from 24-hour free parking and just down the street from historic attractions like the Coney Island Lunch Counter, the Grand Theatre and a host of other shopping and attractions. For a taste of local flavor in Central Nebraska be sure to head to the Chicken Coop.
