The owners of a Council Bluffs restaurant are bringing a new dining experience to Eugene T. Mahoney State Park.

Caddy’s Parkside Grill, located within Peter Kiewit Lodge, opens Thursday.

Owners Brian and Jayme Cadwallader also own and operate the Salty Dog Bar and Grill in Council Bluffs and are preparing to build a second restaurant in downtown Council Bluffs. The Salty Dog is well-known for its wings and burgers, homemade fries and other home-cooked fare. The Caddy’s Parkside Grill menu will provide a family dining menu similar to that of the Cadwalladers’ other restaurant.

During March and April, no park entry permit will be required for people who come to the park to dine at Caddy’s Parkside Grill.

In addition to operating the restaurant, Caddy’s Parkside Grill will cater park events such as family reunions, weddings and corporate outings. There also are plans to serve holiday buffets. The restaurant will initially open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and eventually will offer breakfast.
