Main Street Saloon continues a tradition in Magnolia

By Walter Doerschuk The Press-News Published:

Dean Solenthaler wants to "keep the Tozzi tradition alive" now that the Main Street Saloon is open in Magnolia.

"We're all about family and friends," said Solenthaler, the owner of the new business which opened Aug. 9. "We want to carry that tradition here at the Main Street Saloon."

The location of the saloon has some history to it.

The building, which is located at 168 N. Main St. in Magnolia's town square, used to be a bowling alley. It also belonged to Mike and Chris Tozzi.

It is now used to serve some food and drinks to area residents, and it is also a place where some local bands are performing.

East Sparta native Mike Coates has already performed there. Raven and Zero Tolerance are two other groups Solenthaler has scheduled to take the stage.

Other items for customers are a bike patio, pool tables and dart boards.

Televisions are locked in to college football and the NFL on weekends.

Coneys, chicken salad croissants and chicken nachos make up a small menu of food items available.

Solenthaler said he is hoping to add wings to the menu in the near future.

Bar manager Susie Piero is often behind the counter serving customers.

Solenthaler noted his business has a quality atmosphere that he thinks customers would like.

"It's clean, we have good service and the prices are cheap," Solenthaler said. "We're just a big family."

The Main Street Saloon is open Monday through Thursday from 2 p.m.-11 p.m.; Fridays from 2 p.m.-2 a.m.; Saturdays from 11a.m.-2 a.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
