Mad Platters keeps courthouse appetites fed
August 24, 2022
David Harms didn't set out to own restaurants.
He's a land surveyor by training, just like his father.
But the mid-valley native has found himself drawn to eateries for 30 years, including his latest adventure: Mad Platters, in the basement of the Linn County Courthouse.
"I'm excited," he said. "I named it Mad Platters so we can do things a little differently. We want to offer new menu items regularly and we're not stuck with one style of food."
Mad Platters is open from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday to courthouse staff and visitors as well as the general public.
