This Weekend at Jake Moon

Greetings from Clarksville

Full on autumn has arrived here in the Heldebergs, and if one was to go leaf peeping, this would be the weekend. Pumpkin and apple picking are also at peak season. And of course, seasonal fare abounds here at our little outpost, including Roast Duck, Butternut Squash, Pumpkin Pancakes, Cider Donut French Toast, Whole Grain Waffles, Buttermilk Southern Fried Chicken, and Pot au Feu (French-style Pot Roast of Beef). We keep the more casual fare items such as Mom's Meat Loaf and The Clarksville Fish Fry on the menu, too, as people have come to expect them, and for diners looking for a lighter commitment, as well.

Otherwise our menu is constantly in motion with new items appearing every week. When we get calls for the specials, our answer is generally that the the whole menu are specials! You can also look forward to a new main menu this weekend, where chef will stir in some of the popular specials he's been trying out the last few weeks and moving out some of the seasonal items.

"A Bow and Banjo," our live music, will return this Sunday to play from 11:00 to 1:00. They play old time country string music, and you never know who might show up to sit in with them.

You're always welcome to visit our Facebook Page. Give us a "like" in order to stay tuned to as-the-weekend-progresses menu enhancements.

Hope to see you soon!
