Fishing is such a great way to bond as a family, and it has so many positive benefits, physically and mentally.
    We primarily teach catch and release, but as we've said before, you try talking a kid out of that first fish that they have caught, just ain’t happenin!  The confidence and the big huge grins that we get from these kids when they catch that fish, let’s us know that we are making a positive impact in those kids lives.  Through fishing we are making a valuable investment in our community, and for fishing, along with preserving our natural habitat for future generations.

    Business Name:
    The Tower Grill

    Job title:
    Owner

    "About The Tower Grill"

     The Tower Grill opened in the Fall of 2016.  Located just off runway 29 and 11 at the Nampa Municipal Airport, just feet from the historic Warhawk Air Museum.  Our goal is to deliver genuine, family friendly service and atmosphere while highlighting the magic that a small town airport has to offer.  Owner Nate Lindskoog has grown up with a rich history of flying in his family; flying with his dad when he was young and growing up around airplanes.  The Tower Grill is the result of combining his love for airplanes with over 15 years in the restaurant industry.  From his first job delivering Chinese food when he was 16 until today, Nate has developed a deep love for food a

    nd more importantly, helping people gain meaningful connections through the experience of sharing a meal together in a comfortable environment.  We serve breakfast and lunch 7-3, 8-2 on Sunday and offer a happy hour Friday nights from 5-8 with a new entree item every week.  We are closed on Tuesdays!  We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.  

    What makes your company unique?
    I think our location makes us unique.  There is an undeniable magic of a small town airport that is tough to compete with.  It’s easy for every restaurant to say “the quality of our food and service makes us unique" but I’ll let you be the judge on that one.  

    “You in 2” Write two sentences about you…
    I am a father of 6 kids, twins twice.  Yes, I’m married to a gorgeous superhero whom without I would probably be homeless or dead.  We are never bored and rely on God daily to maintain our energy level and sense of humor.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.  

    What’s something new you’ve learned recently you think others should know?
    Lead from the front.  True leadership must be demonstrated. Never miss an opportunity to serve your team as well as your customers, they are watching EVERYTHING you do.  

    What is one business tip you’ve learned you wish someone had told you when you started?
    I got a lot of great advice starting out.  We are still learning every day, I’d rather be taking advice still than giving it.  So far I’d say don’t throw money at marketing until you have decided who YOU want your target market to be. AND "If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will do it for you".  I stole this from the book titled Essentialism by Greg Mckeown

    What is your proudest accomplishment?
    Other than raising 6 kids and opening my own restaurant, running a Half Ironman and 50k trail race in the same year.
