The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard about a new Taylorville steak house, bar and gaming room during their weekly luncheon Tuesday at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium.
Glen Kluge (clue-GEE) is owner of the new Kluge’s On the Square, in the former Joyce’s Cafe building on the west side of the Taylorville square. Kluge told Kiwanis members that he and his family moved to Taylorville 2 years ago from Springfield, after camping here the past 10 years. Kluge recently retired from Ameren, and has been working on the new restaurant for close to a year, taking the location down to its original brick.
Kluge was a sous chef at a Springfield restaurant for many years, which he said will be very useful in operating his new Taylorville restaurant. Kluge added that the building’s bar and gaming room are both now open, and the steak house is expected to be open the second week in October.
The new Kluge’s On the Square will have seating for 62 people, with an average steak dinner price of 20 to 25-dollars, and will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
