Taste of the Town: Harvest Ale House in Paxton


What’s old is new again at one Central Illinois restaurant that recently opened its doors in Paxton. Harvest Ale House is located in a historic building downtown which has housed a bar since at least the 1930s. The property sat vacant for many years until Benjamin Grice stepped in to make use of the space. 

Harvest Ale House combines old fashioned art-deco design with modern cuisine. Grice says that a major goal for the restaurant was to offer menu items that stepped outside of what you might expect to find at a corner pub. 

“I wanted to be able to have super casual on the menu, but also bring it up a notch. We bring in Certified Angus choice steaks fresh cut in house, we fly in North Atlantic salmon daily.” says Grice.
