RedWater Restaurant Group Announces “Reds” Moving to the Newly Renovated Building (formerly the Acorn Grille) at Thousand Oaks Golf Club
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (March 3, 2016) – RedWater Restaurant Group announced today that the Reds On the River (Reds), on the Rogue River in the City of Rockford, will be moving into the former Acorn Grille at Thousand Oaks Golf Club. The lease in the Promenade Building in Rockford expires June 30th, 2016; Reds is preparing for a transition into a new space at Thousand Oaks Golf Club in Grand Rapids, off of 5 Mile Road and the East Beltline. The restaurant at Thousand Oaks is currently closed while it is being remodeled. The new construction should be completed by the end of March, and the restaurant will reopen in April rebranded as Reds at Thousand Oaks.
After months of negotiations, Reds was unable to come to a financial agreement on the upcoming lease renewal in the Promenade Building. It became apparent through these efforts that Reds would need to move from the Rockford location they have occupied for almost 10 years. Craig Smith, Chief Operating Officer of Redwater Restaurant Group, states “Although we love being located in downtown Rockford, we were met with a difficult decision, either grow and evolve in a new space, or be limited by the current lease, parking area, and the constraints of the building”.
During negotiations, RedWater Restaurant Group, Reds on the River’s parent company, decided to partner with Watermark Properties and Thousand Oaks Golf Club. This partnership offered another option.
The new space under construction at Thousand Oaks has double the kitchen space, allowing Reds to expand the menu, along with a new bar and restaurant interior and patio seating. The new building will feature a contemporary design and welcoming environment. Smith states, “All are welcome in the newly renovated space, golfers and foodies alike will enjoy the view and recently-updated casual environment”. The patio will feature two tiers of seating, fire pits, and a covered deck with the view of the award-winning, Thousand Oaks Golf course.
The menu will include the best of Reds and Thousand Oaks’ entrees, sandwiches, and salads, but will expand to include artisan pizzas, offering something for everyone. Along with the revamped food menu, Reds will continue to feature an extended wine list of over 160 bottle options and 40 glass pours. The new facility will feature a 16 tap system of craft brews and a full liquor selection.
As a thank you to the community for their support and business, Reds will be offering 20% off all food and beverage purchases from March 7th until closing.
