Winches created the restaurant by constructing a covered deck for the dining area and ordering custom-designed, caboose-shaped shipping containers for the kitchen and bar.

The Louisville, Kentucky native is best-known across the state as the sports anchor at WBRC-TV/Channel 6 (now Fox 6), a career that started in 1975.  Winches always opened sportscast with “Hello again, everybody,” and his signature line, “Hit ‘em straight.”

Winches was a standout running back at Jacksonville State, playing on the only undefeated team in Gamecocks history during the 1970 season.

Winches and his wife, Betty, have two children.
