The Wild Turkey Lounge offers a light menu and full bar selection of spirits and mixed drinks
In November of 1984, an enlarged lobby and the Wild Turkey Lounge opened to accommodate customers waiting to be seated. The Wild Turkey Lounge earned its name from the extensive collection of Wild Turkey decanters. Over 600 decanters are displayed, deeming it the largest private collection in the world.
This area was once used for the offices of the Angus Barn, but as business grew
beyond the huge dining area, Thad felt the need for the lounge to accommodate waiting
guests. An avid collector of many things, Thad had a large assortment of Wild Turkey
decanters kept at home. As he and Alice prepared to move to a new house, she suggested
that the decanter collection be left behind. Thad saw this opportunity to add yet
another unique twist to the Angus Barn and The Wild Turkey Lounge was born. Since
the collection moved to the lounge, it has grown quite a bit and now numbers over
The Wild Turkey Lounge is open 3:00pm-11pm Monday through Saturday • Sundays 3pm-10pm
The west wall of our waiting room houses one of the largest collection of single
action colts on the east coast (single action means that unlike the modern revolver
these guns had to be cocked before firing). These are guns and memorabilia that
were used by real cowboys, those that portrayed them, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood,
Tex Ritter and one that belonged to a pioneer of music, Hank Williams, Sr. There
are several Navy Colts, and the gun that won the west.
