Oakhouse Redesign Creates Inviting Restaurant and Bar in Lakewood

LAKEWOOD, Wash. (August 7, 2012) – After reopening this spring with a lively new environment and fresh kitchen items, the Oakhouse Restaurant is enjoying a diversity of new patrons. Located next to the Oakbrook Golf Course in Lakewood, the redesigned “come-as-you-are” restaurant and bar is open to the public.  RMG Golf Course Management LLC (RMG) implemented the redesign and complete remodel after the partnership purchased the location in 2011.

“We’ve created the perfect location for grabbing a drink with friends or a tasty meal for families,” said Jason Moore, vice president of marketing for RMG. “It’s not just for golfers anymore. Anyone can come and enjoy the view of the golf course while eating a hamburger with a beer.”

According to Moore, interior updates are bringing new reasons to enjoy the picturesque views of the golf course from the large windows in the restaurant and bar. The upgrades include polished concrete flooring, new booths and seating arrangements, upgraded lighting, modern finishes and multiple flat-screen televisions. The kitchen and the menu have also benefited from a new perspective.

“Our focus is on fresh ingredients and quality Northwest menu options for any time of the day,” noted Brian Tholen, head chef of the restaurant. “We are especially excited about the full gluten-free menu.”

The more robust menu includes fare from steak, burgers, sandwiches, pizza, seafood, salads and pasta. Gluten-free choices range from pacific salmon to spaghetti pomodoro, plus gluten-free pasta on the children’s menu. The Oakhouse bar has new beverage choices, such as the Godiva Chocolate Orange martini, Oakhouse Rita spirit or Lakeside Splash. The restaurant currently has a four-star rating on Yelp

The Oakhouse Restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. M-Th, 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sat and 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sun and is located at 8102 Zircon Drive in Lakewood, Washington. More information about the Oakhouse is available by calling (253) 584-8888.
