Three young entrepreneurs who own the Shady Lady, a popular bar and restaurant in Sacramento, are bringing their 1920s saloon atmosphere to downtown Galt. The new restaurant will be in the historic Brewster building, which used to be the city’s old post office and a general store.

Sticking with the historical theme, co-owner Garrett Van Vleck said they will call it Brewster’s Bar and Grill. They plan to open in March.

    It will be interesting to see how this upscale restaurant does in Galt. It is needed. By looking at the menu for Shady Lady I hope prices and entrees are "adjusted" to fit the area. I wish them good luck and can't wait to try their fare......
