1957 Dinner Menu

This 1957 Indian Warfare dinner menu included the exact same Lenten Special as the lunch menu. This one is stapled inside instead of paper clipped, so rather than harm the paper I left it in. Curiously, the a la carte menu that it partly covers up is almost identical to the luncheon a la carte menu.

The table d’hôte side, however, is different, offering Lake Superior trout ($2.75; about $22 in today’s money); hickory smoked ham ($2.95), center cut pork chops ($2.95); and pan fried or broiled spring chicken ($2.95), complete with navy bean soup; potatoes; biscuits; beets; dessert; and beverage. There is also the $3.00 Western Star Special of top butt steak or “Chef’s Suggestion” of unspecified meat or fish for $1.85 with soup, potatoes, biscuits, vegetable, dessert, and beverage.
