Tim Allen’s is the place to meet and eat

At Tim Allen’s, the “place to meet and eat” in Kiel, the Boll family is eager to serve their guests in a relaxed, casual dining atmosphere. From left are Bryan, Tammie, Cory and Clarissa. Cassie and Cassandra also help serve and bartend.

For more than a century, the building that houses Tim Allen’s Supper Club has been a gathering place for the Kiel area community.

Since the late 1800’s the building has been home to many business’, but primarily has housed eating and drinking establishments—dating back to Gustav Wriedt’s tavern in the early years.

In July of 2015, Cory and Tammie Boll and their family officially re-opened the doors of the gathering place as “the place to meet and eat in Kiel.”

By September, they refurbished the kitchen, and added dining opportunities to fulfill their motto.

Tim Allen’s Supper Club offers casual fine dining and cocktails seven days a week. The Boll family sees their supper club as a place for people to enjoy a great meal and a cocktail in a comfortable atmosphere—and for a price that’s comfortable, too!

Food is served from 11 a. m. to 9 p. m. every day. The lounge remains open for those who wish to enjoy a late evening cocktail.

At Tim Allen’s Supper Club, the menu includes something for everyone. But, a critical goal is to provide food and drink at an affordable level, something clearly indicated by a number of the specials.

The Tim Allen’s menu includes items available at both lunch and supper— wraps, sandwiches, salads and plate dinners. While the offerings are largely American style, both Mexican and Italian selections dot the menu.

Daily sandwich and plate specials are offered Monday through Friday for lunch and early afternoons.

Value priced specials

Specials are offered beginning on Wednesdays, which feature $6 night. Dinner patrons can enjoy a $6 dinner featuring an 8 ounce New York Strip steak every Wednesday.

On Thursday’s, Tim Allen’s encourages you to go Italian, offering different dishes on special like gnocchi, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, or alfredo.

Friday brings the traditional fish fry. With all fish shipped in locally each Friday, Tim Allen’s offers a variety of fish options. The perch plate tops the list, but diners can also enjoy blue gill, cod, salmon, shrimp, mock crab and lobster.

Saturday brings steak night, and Tim Allen’s offers a deal that can’t be beat. They call it the Saturday Date Night Special.

For $25, couples can enjoy a dinner that includes two steaks, a drink for each diner and a salad.

“One of our major goals is to set the prices to be affordable, and that’s a great deal,” Boll said.

“It’s our hope that offering the casual atmosphere and affordable pricing makes people comfortable coming back a couple of times in a week,” he added.

You might also want to save room for dessert. Tim Allen’s offers made-from-scratch desert on a daily basis with three choices daily and more than 25 varieties. Tim Allen’s Supper Club has also offered holiday specials. On those days, the supper club features a family style. “We welcome groups and families of all sizes for the holidays,” Tammie said. “Thanksgiving was one of our biggest days as we served more than 100 people for that holiday.”

Hosting groups

The dining room is also available to host parties, meetings and groups of any kind—again emphasizing the “place to meet and eat” philosophy.

All varieties of groups are welcome.

The cocktail lounge also offers great opportunities to meet.

Recently, Tim Allen’s hosted Dave Steffen for an acoustic music evening. They plan to have him back on Friday, April 8, which is coincidentally Cory and Tammie’s wedding anniversary, and an anniversary of friends.

On the most nights, though, great music always plays in the background— music suited for the clientele that wants a relaxed atmosphere for conversation.

Four big screen TV’s are available for major sporting events.

Tim Allen’s also sponsors and welcomes leagues and sporting teams to come in after their games. They sponsor a basketball and a pool league team, and adopted the Larry’s Good Time Inn bean bag team.

“We enjoy all the people who come in and have a good time. It’s a great place to enjoy a quiet meal or to meet and converse with others,” Cory said.

Tammie and Cory also rely on their family as staff. In addition to a few non-family employees, they are assisted by daughters Cassie and Cassandra who serve either in the bar or dining room. Cassie handles waitressing duties. Bryan, the youngest member of the family, assists in the dining room and the kitchen. Tim Allen’s Supper Club is located at

901 Fremont Street in Kiel. You can also find them electronically at timallenssupperclub.comor on Facebook.
