After a much anticipated wait, The Fort has been revamped and is now open for business. Owner Dan Gerleman, who ran The Fort along with his mother for years in the 80’s, is back running it again. Dan also honed his skills working at the restaurant formerly called Ooodles, which is now called the Train Station in Calmar. Later he moved to La Crosse, Wis. and ran a bar and grill there for twenty years. Now he is back home in Fort Atkinson, where it all started.
