Sunset Bar and Grill to become Boomtown Woodfire Bar and Grill.

RICE LAKE, MN– Although the sun is setting on a well-known bar in Rice Lake, it’ll be rising for a new business next spring.

The Sunset Bar and Grill building was recently purchased by husband and wife team Erik and Jessica Lietz.

The Lietz’s own Boomtown Woodfire Bar and Grill in Eveleth and Hibbing, as well as The Whistling Bird in Gilbert.

Erik says they hope to turn the Rice Lake Building into a Boomtown restaurant by next spring. They also plan to commercially develop the area where the softball fields currently sit.

The Sunset closed its doors last November.
