HELENA -

The Windbag Saloon & Grill, a staple of the downtown walking mall in Helena, will soon be under new ownership.

Randy Beckner says after 35 years he's ready to hand over the reins to the popular restaurant, which is located at 19 S. Last Chance Gulch.

Beckner says he's enjoyed seeing kids come into his establishment and eventually see them bring in their own kids to enjoy the food.

Beckner expressed his gratitude to all of the customers. 

He said, "Thanks, you know it's just been unbelievable all of the people we've gotten to know. All the groups we've been able to support. It's just like a family here."

He says the sale should be final in the next two months.

Mike Schmechel will be taking over as new owner.

His family owns Montana Brewing Company in Billings and the Thomas Meagher Bar in Missoula.
