The Greendale-sports themed family-friendly restaurant should open on Broad Street this summer.
After weeks of demolition inside the former Associated Bank building, 5651 Broad St., in Downtown Greendale, construction of the Panther Pub & Eatery has begun. Owner Mike Drilling told Greendale Patch on Monday, building the restaurant would take several weeks. Though he has a target in mind, he said no official opening date had been set. Panther Pub was approved by the Village last fall and will be the second major restaurant addition to downtown in as many years, following Joey Gerard's 2012 opening.

The new eatery plans to open in downtown Greendale by the Fourth of July.
"Downtown Greendale's Next Big Thing," as Mike Vickery's Feb. 7 column put it, still has a ways to go before its planned Fourth of July opening. But the Panther Pub and Eatery has already generated some buzz in the community, and several chimed in after reading Vickery's column about what they want to see at the new Greendale eatery. L G: Local craft brewer and perhaps local vodka and other spirits. There is quite the guild of spirit and brew makers in and around Milwaukee. I hope that their efforts are offered here. It is a great way to foster these upstart businesses and makers. VW: Make it good craft beer, not just the usual tasteless yellow fizzy water. David Hardeman: I second the good craft beer idea. I am tired of having to drive …

The Village continues to grow while retaining its inner Bedford Falls.
As every clock owner knows, the times they are a changin’. It certainly holds true here in the Garden Community. We move into our 75th year in full stride, boasting of archways and signage and streetscaping and a totally reimagined Mall. Our Village Leaders have done all this without a loss of innocence, without transforming our core essence. We remain way more Bedford Falls than Pottersville. I am fairly certain Mr. Gower is a manager at our Walgreens. The last time Greendale went through so much change was in 1938 – the big move from ‘cow pasture’ to ‘Village’. Historians refer to 1938 as “the year Greendale started making Greenfield look bad” – although some cows feel they – the cows - were doing this long before 1938. If you are …

Owner Mike Drilling spoke about his vision of the upcoming Panther athletics-themed restaurant in the Village Center.
Panther Pub and Eatery, a Greendale athletics-themed restaurant in the Village Center, will provide a family experience, the owner said at a presentation Thursday. Mike Drilling said at a Greendale Historical Society meeting he had “no interest in opening a tavern or bar.” He said the restaurant would be a family establishment where parents can bring their kids, and also be inviting to a younger crowd. He said his establishment would be similar to a Red Robin and Applebees. Some have expressed concerns that Drilling is bringing a bar into the Village Center. “I don’t want that kind of establishment,” Drilling said. “I think we all know what I’m talking about. Parents have to be able to bring their 6-year-old.” Drilling said he’s always …
