Heroes Table Restaurant™

The Crackpot's Heroes Table Restaurant invites our vets  to let us  engrave a purple metal name plaque with their name, rank, branch of service & the war or conflict in which they served. We honor any vet who dines with us - by placing their name plaque on the "HEROES LEDGE" which runs the length of the dining room for all to see. We have over 700 engraved plaques on the "HEROES LEDGE".  We routinely invite vets from the Loch Ravern Rehab Center to enjoy a free lunch & dessert.  Usually groups of 15-20 wheelchair bound vets arrive on the Centers mobility vehicle.
