Meadowbrook Pub and Grill in Rapid City looks to city for financial help

Posted:

Rapid City's Meadowbrook Golf Course's restaurant is struggling financially, and its owners are asking the city for help.

Back in February, the city entered a Food and Beverage Concession  Agreement with Canyon Lake Chophouse, and restaurant owners Mike and Carmen Derby. The city agreed to pay for maintenance, cleaning and custodial services for the pub and grill, as well as 25 percent of the utilities.

And the more golfers who begin rounds there the more money the Concessionaire will pay to the city. But business is not doing so well with the construction on Jackson Boulevard having potential diners avoiding that street.

People from the Golf Association in Rapid City are concerned that the slow business financially will fall back on them, the golfers. "I think its been proven that the city tried to run the Meadowbrook restaurant and that failed, it lost money," said Denny Dressen of the Golf Association. "And evidently we've proved again that if its run as a restaurant and leased it out to somebody it's going to lose money," said Dressen.   

But City Council President Jerry Wright thinks that will not happen. "I hope we can approve this, it's amended and see how it goes and I don't think its any interest to be subsidized by the golfers, that is not the intent. The intent is for it to make it on its own," said Wright.   

Amending the agreement will be continued at the next city council meeting.
