Grill at the Dome to expand

Tonawanda News — The popular Grill at the Dome is set to undergo a large expansion in the next few months and will have additional space for private parties.

The town board approved the amendment of the license agreement to allow the company, Clubs ‘N Such, Inc., to add 1,477 square feet of space to their business at the Paddock Chevrolet Golf Dome located at 175 Brompton Rd.

“They will have two additional party rooms, which will hold 58 and 35 people,” Director of Parks and Recreation Dan Wiles said. “The existing restaurant will hold a small party of 15 or 20 people, as well as storage space.”

There will be a moveable partition wall that will provide for parties of 100 people.

The restaurant will take over the pro shop’s space, officials said.

An additional kitchen will not be added. 

Work on the restaurant’s addition is set to begin today and is expected to be done by the new year.

The town also passed a resolution that will allow Sportzone at the Dome to operate computer simulated sport games at the dome.

“You will be able to play golf, but also baseball, hockey and soccer,” Wiles said. 

Wiles also said that the seven simulator machines will have popular games like Halo and Call of Duty. The machines will allow contestants to play with each other from  different cities. 

Dan Wiles was set to present on the golf concessions’ profits at Monday’s meeting, but the presentation was delayed for the second time.

“He has another month of revenue data coming, so we want to wait,” Board member Dan Crangle said.

The town overtook the concessions from local businessman Michael Vishion last year, after he lost in an election against Crangle for a spot on the board.

Vishion has stated he suspected the decision was motivated by political retribution, but town authorities denied that allegation, arguing the town would make more money if they took over the businesses themselves.
