The Quarry, a “retro rock and roll bar,” will be opening soon in Terrytown, featuring music and art from the 1950s through the 1980s.
Sam Landers, along with partner Dawn Seymour, will operate the restaurant and bar. “We’ll be serving comfort food,” Landers said. “That’s Philly cheesesteaks, pulled pork, ribs, wings, nachos and quesadillas. We plan to have the kitchen operating from opening to closing, which is rare in a bar.”
The restaurant, just off 10th Street in Terrytown, had been home to Goonie’s Kozy Keno Bar and Grill for about two years.
But growth made a move necessary for owner Paul Guhn to a larger venue in former Oregon Trail Lounge on M Street in Gering in early April.
“Paul, who owns Goonie’s, is a friend of ours, so when he moved. This building just fell into our laps,” Landers said. “I’ve been in the food service industry and I’ve always wanted to do a retro themed bar of some sort. Dawn has been in bar management, so when this opportunity came up, we decided to try it.”
Heading up the kitchen will the former cook from Gates Barbecue in Scottsbluff, so Landers expects the barbecue to be as delicious as always.
“The Quarry should be a really comfortable place,” he said.
“We’ll cater more to the Baby Boomer generation than anything else. I call it a calm, chill environment.”
Landers said The Quarry will also offer Keno for its customers. A soft opening is planned at the start of May.
