Melvin Jones Award Presented Riverside Inn

Last month Bonnie and Bob Mudek, owners of Riverside Inn, were presented the Melvin Jones Award for their support and contributions to the Crosslake Ideal Lions Club. They became owners in 1978 and continue as active owners in the restaurant along with their sons, Shane and Judd. They are charter members of the Crosslake Ideal Lions. The public has continued to support their efforts particularly for their Family Style Chicken/Buckets of Chicken to Go, which is their trademark.

They host many community events although this year it has been limited due to Covid 19. Normal events include a pool league, Bocce Ball Tournaments, and buffets on special holidays. They are available to serve the community 364 days per year, with Christmas being the only day they close.
