Menu And Restaurant Hours Change At Birches Bar And Grill

Feather News
Updated with change in restaurant hours

Birches Bar and Grill, one of Mohegan Sun's restaurants popular with tribal elders and others, will be eliminating their breakfast selections on September 1. It's unclear if other changes to the menu are planned.

Birches is one of a few restaurants inside the casino in which the profits go directly to the tribal government, according to officials.

Twice per week, elders whom are age 62 and over can eat for free at either Birches Bar and Grill, Fidelia's or the two buffets. This is one reason why Birches has become a popular restaurant for some tribal members.

Along with menu changes, Birches is also changing the time that they open. Birches will now open at 11:30 a.m. and not at 9:00 in the morning, according to sources.

Prior to being remodeled and named Birches, the restaurant was called the Uncas American Grill and Mohegan Territory.
