Part of Legacy Hospitality

Our mission is to work together to provide people with an experience that is elevated beyond the ordinary. We strive to provide an adaptable environment where employees, and guests alike, will create great memories, enjoy the moment and make anticipated plans. We achieve this mission by putting our employees first.

Welcome Back, at its very core, is the description of hospitality. A place that no matter if you had been there before or not, you immediately feel like a regular. With a late 1970s early 1980s feel and a place where friends can meet on the reg.
Just celebrating our school house years!
