Stumbling in Plainview

Change is stumbling in the door of a Plainview bar and restaurant.

  Troy and Joy Stock are taking over the The Hill Supper Club and Lounge at the Plainview Golf Course on Oct. 1 from Dorothy and Orrin “Puddin” Haugen.

The Stocks are re-naming the club as The Stumble Inn 2 after the bar they own in nearby Millville. It's called, of course, The Stumble Inn.

Plainv61"We want to build up the business. It is a challenge," Troy Stock says. "We've looked at this for years. It was finally time to pull the trigger."

The Stocks are revamping the place to make it more "user friendly." They're moving the bar to a better location within the restaurant for both the customers and the staff, and they're also expanding hours. The Stocks plan to be open every day starting in the morning. Hiring a chef is in the works.

"It is a fantastic location. It is the prime spot for snowmobilers to stop," he says.

Troy Stock estimates that he'll probably staff the Stumble Inn's new sibling with roughly six to eight people.


Having lived in Plainview for many years, this has always been, in my opinion, a diamond in the rough. There really isn't a good steak house in the area. And with everyone driving from Rochester to Wabasha... You get a great chef, great food, great service, a salad bar and people will drive from Rochester and the surrounding are for great food. Plus, put in a great Sunday brunch and this has the potential of a go to place.

Is this the course just south of Plainview?
