Shawn Birdsall, Owner

Shawn was born and raised in Slater, Iowa.  After graduating from Ballard High School, Shawn held several positions with Barr-Nunn Transportation and Iowa Plains Signing, Inc.  Shawn’s passion for cooking, owning his own business, and working with the public helped him pursue his dream of owning his own bar and restaurant.

Outside of his professional life, Shawn is has an enthusiasm for his family (Paige and Berkley),woodworking, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, camping, and bike riding.  His love of the culinary arts also keeps him thinking and planning signature dishes for the Nite Hawk!

Shawn is also involved with the Slater community by serving on the Park Board, City Council, and as a volunteer fireman.

On warm days, you just might find Shawn and Roxie (his English Bull Dog) working in the back bar.
