where everybody knows your name
In Natalie’s Sports Bar and Grill’s first year of infancy, Natalie Oldenkamp has already realized her vision to create a place “that’s all about friends and family, and making customers friends and family.” The sports bar is likened to Cheers, a place where everybody knows your name. Getting to know customers is on Natalie’s agenda as she serves up generous portions of great food at reasonable prices along with a full bar, featuring over 60 beers.
You know Natalie’s Sports Bar is meant to be a place to have fun as soon as you read the menu; with items listed like Chicken Strips “but it put her through college”, Loaded Fries that are “maybe just a little buzzed” and Steamed Shrimp that are “angry, but getting over it”. Seafood, jumbo wings with homemade sauces, sandwiches and pizza aren’t the only things on the menu at Natalie’s. Their menu is much more extensive than what you would see at a typical sports bar. Good times are meant to be had here, too. Fun is supplied for all ages with golf, bowling and video games in the game room. With 35 televisions, sports can be watched from virtually any seat in the house, including the porch. There’s even a separate channel to check on the kids playing in the game room.
Both Natalie and her husband, Kenny Baldwin brought years of restaurant management experience and their own followings to the business. When they decided to take over the space in the old Bedrock Building, they made certain to give the place a fresh start, renovating and transforming the space into an upscale sports bar. Their latest project is the porch where you can find something special happening every Sunday, from oyster roasts to crab boils.
But then there’s always something special happening at Natalie’s. It’s quickly become the hot venue for parties, reunions and business events. Daily food and drink specials and happy hour probably keeps customers happy longer than any place around, lasting until 8:30 p.m. Whether customers are watching the game, eating fresh Apalachicola oysters, playing games or making new friends, keeping customers happy is at the top of Natalie’s menu!

Meet & Eat Networking Luncheons Overview
Come eat, network and meet other members of the WomanToWomanMagazine.com community at our new monthly Meet & Eat Networking Luncheons. The Network Luncheons will meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 11:30am-1:30pm in either East or West Polk County.
The great thing about the Meet & Eat Networking Luncheons is that you come and go as your schedule allows between 11:30am to 1:30pm. There are no long speeches or presentations, just one-on-one networking. One highlight of the networking luncheons is that two businesses will each have a table at each luncheon to promote their businesses. The two businesses will be chosen via a random drawing from members who RSVP to the luncheon on the WomanToWomanMagazine.com website. The two businesses chosen will also be featured on the WomanToWomanMagazine.com website the week of the luncheon. Both featured business will need to supply a $25-$50 door prize to be given away at the Meet & Eat Networking Luncheon.
The networking is similar to that of an “after hours” networking function. Network as little or as much as you want. No pressure, no stress. Just make new contacts, meet your fellow Woman To Woman members face to face, enjoy a meal and maybe make a new friend.
Lunch will be served buffet style so that you can come and go as your time frame allows. Lunch price will vary depending on location. Check the WomanToWomanMagazine.com website regularly to find out which restaurant or business will be hosting the Meet & Eat Networking Luncheons. Non-members can come and join as a member and network. Not a Member? Join Here It is free to Join.
