History of Kroll’s West Restaurant

Kroll's West Dining Room

HistoryKroll’s West has been delighting area diners for three generations. Harry and Caroline Kroll began serving food in a family hotel in 1931, and their meals became so popular that they built their first restaurant in 1936 at 1658 Main Street in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The famous “Kroll’s Hamburger,” with its full, rich flavor and tasty accents, was born here.

A shift to a basement location under the Labor Temple Auditorium, just prior to World War II, proved that devoted customers of Kroll’s food would follow the business where ever it located. Pat Kroll Van Der Perren began working here with her mother and father, learning the business at an early age.
Kroll's West Signature Wall


Kroll’s Downtown became a City of Green Bay landmark long before Vince Lombardi came to town, and before urban renewal, with its renovating push, forced another move in 1974 to its current location at 1990 S. Ridge Road. With each relocation, more customers appeared and Kroll’s West has worked harder to provide delightful dining.

At this time, the third generation, Bobbie Van Der Perren Wier and her husband Mike, picked up the challenge of a greatly expanded restaurant.
