There's good Christmas spirit at Round the Bend (compare Dec 10th with Nov 18th) - however, TJ and Tifini will make room for as many gifts as you all bring.


Ashland, NE — Every veteran that has selflessly served our nation deserves to treat his or her children with gifts on Christmas morning. However, many veterans live without the means to provide Christmas gifts to their families.

 Round the Bend Steakhouse is excited to announce SGT Kringles Kids, an initiative to provide children of military veterans in need with gifts this holiday season. Through a partnership with the Marine Corps League (MCL) and the Marine Corps League Auxiliary (MCLA), all gifts brought to Round the Bend Steakhouse will be directly donated to disadvantaged children of veterans, so that every military family may enjoy the Christmas they deserve. Now through Dec 16, visitors to Round the Bend Steakhouse are encouraged to bring an unwrapped and new toy to place under the Christmas tree in the dining room. As a show of gratitude, SGT Kringle's Kids participants will receive a free appetizer. Karen & I highly recommend the onion rings - they are the best!!!

“For us there are two reasons for our freedom, Jesus and the American soldier. We are excited to show the love of Jesus to our soldiers’ kids by putting them first this Christmas,” said TJ & Tifini Olson, owners of Round the Bend Steakhouse.

 Toy Suggestions (children 12 & under):

-      Books

-      Puzzles
