Kristall’s Restaurant & Lounge was opened in 1982 by a Leavenworth native and his two best friends. They wanted to provide Leavenworth with a place for locals and tourists alike to dine, drink, and mingle. This they achieved, and have been successful ever since. Kristall’s was named after one of the original three’s girlfriend, and is decorated with pictures and memorabilia from Leavenworth’s grand history. Although Kristall’s was sold 15 years ago, it is now under original ownership once more and being given a fresh new look and menu.
