To all of our friends, fans and family...
We realize that not everyone has heard our news and if you’ve come here to peruse the menu or check our hours, we have some very sad news. On Monday, August 14, we suffered a devastating fire. The restaurant and our lovely historic building were severely damaged. We will rebuild but right now we are literally sorting through the rubble and working out the details. We are keeping everyone updated on our Facebook page. Go follow us there to get the latest on our news and progress.
First of all, we want to give thanks that even though the fire is severe that no one was hurt. Again, we are beyond grateful that no one was hurt.
Secondly, we want to thank the amazing firefighters who have worked tirelessly to save our venerable building and the history it contains.
We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from this community and we will respond to each of your Facebook posts as we sort through them. But please let us reassure you that the Corner Bar will continue our fine history of serving the Rockford community just as soon as we get things sorted.
We will continue to keep you posted on what is going on but for now we are assessing things and giving thanks that the building was empty and our most important assets....our staff and our guests were not harmed.
Jeff Wolfe, Proprietor
