Farm-to-Table • Craft Cocktails • Live Jazz


It is with no small amount of care, concern and a great deal of thought, that we have made the decision for The Oxbow Hotel and The Lakely to remain closed through the end of 2020.

Hard times mean equally hard decisions; and while this was a very challenging one to make, our top priority continues to be the safety and wellbeing of our guests, team, and community throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and always.

And yet, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and that’s where we shift our focus, now.

So, friends, it’s not goodbye… it’s just see you later! And trust us, we CANNOT WAIT for later.

We’d like to express our heartfelt thanks for the support we’ve been given by you, our guests – we cannot wait to see you again, and will continue to post updates as they become available.

From our team to you and yours, be well.


The Lakely is a restaurant, bar, and a venue. A place to gather, hang, and absorb the culture. A place to feel at home whether you’re a local, a traveler, or something in between.

The Lakely boasts a locally-sourced, seasonal menu. We serve casual Midwest modern comfort foods, including our famous Koldtbord, from open until bar close. Behind the bar we feature a cleverly curated list of craft cocktails and local brews on tap and in bottles.

Evenings are reserved for our signature stage hosting local and touring jazz and other live music. Our generous courtyard patio has outdoor lounge seating, high-top tables, two fire pits, a yard game lawn, and more.

“The Lakely has a farm-to-table focus with gourmet dishes rooted in the midwest — and they’re absolutely fantastic… Terrific craft cocktails, too. You’re getting big-city quality for small town prices.”
