Jax Cafe, whose tagline is "Serving steaks, not trends," will be dishing up anything but steaks on November 14 at its Hunters Dinner.

Alligator and rattlesnake are among the menu offerings at the $80-a-head dinner, which owner Bill Kozlak says will draw hunters and epicureans alike.

Hunters Dinners have been a tradition at Jax Cafe for around 40 years, according to

Rattlesnake cakes have been on the Hunters Dinner menu for close to 20 years and remain one of the most popular offerings. Kozlak tried removing them one year due to rising costs but met with an uproar, he says. They've been featured ever since.

As guests move on to dinner, options will include quail with dried cherries and pistachio (one of the most popular options, according to Kozlak), venison sausage with micro green salad, Ritz cracker-crusted walleye with Tillamook cheddar mac and cheese, and grilled elk tournados with Summit Beer-braised mushrooms atop brioche toast point served with sweet potato puree and sauce choron.

All entrees are served with beer or cocktail pairings, courtesy of Summit Brewery or new partner 2 Gingers Whiskey, whose owner Kieran Folliard will be at the event to charm customers and serve up delicious drinks.

Ticket information is available by calling Jax Cafe at 612.789.7297.
