Restaurant and bar at Pelican Lakes reopens for business
April 11, 2014
After three months with its doors closed for renovations, the restaurant and bar at Pelican Lakes Golf and Country Club will reopen to the public at 11 a.m. Monday.
The restaurant, located at 1600 Pelican Lakes Point, closed Jan. 6 for renovations to the restaurant's design and layout. The restaurant was formerly known as Austin's Homestead Grill before a management and service team composed mostly of former Austin's employees took over operation of the restaurant in January.
"Our guests will be stunned when they see our new look," Martin Lind, CEO of Water Valley Land Company, said in a news release announcing the opening.
In addition to improvements to the building, the restaurant's food and drink menus were revamped, as well, according to Kurt Hinkle, Water Valley Land Company's director of marketing.
"It is a straight-from-scratch kitchen, all the way down to making our own bacon," Pelican Lakes Restaurant and Bar General Manager Kirk Silos said in the release.
The downstairs sports bar, known as The Sand Bar, is a 2,100-square-foot space with televisions, three golf simulators and a small kitchen serving pizzas, sandwiches, paninis, nachos and other bar-style food for both Pelican Lakes members and guests. The kitchen will also serve patrons of the swimming pool during the summer months.
The restaurant, main lounge and sports bar will be the only establishment where people can drink the club's specialty beer, Pelican Lakes Lager. Windsor's High Hops Brewery partnered with Pelican Lakes to create the beer.
"We fully expect Pelican Lakes Golf and Country Club and Water Valley to become northern Colorado's most sought after golf and living experience," Lind said in the release. "This extensive renovation of facilities and food will be recognized as the start to that end."
The public can make dinner reservations after Monday by calling (970) 674-1100.
