Wellington;s Pub and Grill
1429 West Service Drive


Nestled between the bluffs and lakes on Hwy 61 in Winona, Minnesota is where you will find this unique and local favorite brewpub and bowling alley. The vision became a reality in 1961 when the founder, Paul Wellington Gardner built Westgate Bowl, a 16 lane center which today continues to flourish.

In 1988, the vision continued with Paul’s family opening a Pub and Grill naming the establishment after their founder, Paul Wellington. “Wellington’s Pub and Grill”, which is attached to the bowling alley, quickly became a local favorite with its juicy burgers, smoked ribs, award winning chili, and outstanding menu. You will be sure to find your favorite sporting event on any of the state-of-the-art TVs.

In 1995, another vision became a reality with the addition of Wellington’s “Backwater Brewing Company” which until recently was Located within Wellington’s. Backwater Brewing Company recently expanded, was renamed Wenona Brewing Company, and moved just a few miles away. This is the only brewery in Winona.
