Whether or not the outlandish story told on the website about how Cobbleheads Bar & Grill got its name is correct (a boy got his foot stuck on a moving trolley and his head bumped on the cobbles), there is an element of fun at Cobbleheads that its name rightly reflects. There is a wide selection of food, try the pasta, a sizzler, and ice cream. Cobbleheads Bar & Grill is great place to unwind with cold beer and good food.
Housed in a welcoming red building, the Vermillion serves good food at a reasonable price.

Takeout is available, and the menu includes specials every day of the week, or try the nachos and fried pickles.
