Talk about a soft opening. Trapper Pete’s Steakhouse & Saloon of Scanlon will celebrate its opening with an 11:30 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 13, but the restaurant has been serving up meals and drinks to customers since July.
Located in the former Seasons restaurant building, at 1306 Highway 45, the restaurant offers traditional American fare, as well as a number of Italian dishes. The eatery was opened by Gary and Cindy Peterson of Esko. They formerly owned and operated the Congress Bar & Grill in Gary/New Duluth.
The festivities will continue at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, when the restaurant will host a grand opening celebration. The event will offer food, drinks, hourly prizes, face painting and a juggler. Autumn-themed photos also will be offered by Mark Marquis Photography. And the day will culminate with a bonfire and live band.
