In 1906, Hafner Farms was founded by brothers, Jake & George Hafner. The produce they grew was the freshest around and soon was being trucked to local grocery stores and sold at their family roadside stands. With their hard work came success…and a “vision". Jake and his wife, Mary, decided to build a family restaurant as another outlet for their quality, fresh produce.
In 1970, Jake Hafner’s Restaurant & Tavern was built. It was run by their oldest son, Peter. In 1980, it was taken over by his brother, Tom, who is presently owner and operator with his wife, Cris, their son, Jake and daughter, Mackenzie. They also had a “vision”. They wanted the restaurant to be warm and inviting, and the food to be unique and of exceptional quality.
They bought old barns and incorporated the barnwood throughout. A family friend donated tons of field stone and a very talented mason worked his magic. Upon completion of the renovations, the restaurant successfully reflected Tom’s and Cris’s personalities.
It is rustic and charming, with a two-way fireplace that warms the dining room and the tavern. Each dining room booth has been personalized by local artists with theme murals. The lively sports bar is a great place to be with your friends or make new friends, featuring twenty-five TVs and a 110-inch big screen TV. Reserve the “Dog Bone,” a unique cocktail table, in honor of Tom’s constant companion, Indy, for special get-togethers! Complimentary internet service is also available to help make the most of your dining time.
