Great Friends And Great Times Happen Here!

My husband and I stopped in for the first time and sat out on the waterfront dining area. Great atmosphere! We ordered wings, haddock and fire cracker shrimp! All food and drinks were excellent. We will definitely be back.

The Sportsman Management would like to formally announce the departure of George Wade as General Manager.  After almost 15 years George has decided to move back to the Southeast where he was raised and his family still lives.  We are so grateful for his amazing leadership over the past years and the contribution he has made to The Sportsman Inn and to the Monticello community.  George will have his final day on January 31st.  The ownership of The Sportsman Inn is aggressively searching for the next leader of the restaurant.  We have placed the restaurant on the market for sale and will work to find a suitable owner in the next 90 days.  Effective January 1, Patty Woods will replace George as the General Manager.  Patty has been with the Sportsman since the grand re-opening 15 years ago.  She has been a cornerstone of the leadership and we are confident in her ability to keep the culture and level of quality you have come to expect from The Sportsman Inn.  In the meantime, we will continue to operate as normal.  The Sportsman Inn is a regional icon and a top place to work.  We thank all of our customers, employees and partners for their continued support!

A Little About Us

Built as a country club for well to do big city visitors from Chicago, The Sportsman Inn has been a draw for tourists and local folks as well since 1928. The Sportsman has housed many famous and infamous individuals including state politicians, athletes, business people and even gangsters such as Al Capone (known to frequent the area). As a family run business, the Sportsman gained a reputation for excellent service and fine food. In April of 2006 a new ownership group, dedicated to saving the “Historic Sportsman Inn”, purchased the property.
