Restaurant: The Taproom Bar &
Golf Course: Atlantic City CC
Location: Northfield, N.J.
The Ottinger Golf Group acquired the
Atlantic City Country Club in 2014 and
set out to reinvent the facility. It renovated
the Taproom Bar & Grille in 2016, expand-
ing the kitchen to four times the previous
size. It added a Wood Stone Corp. pizza
oven; a gas grill for burgers, steaks and
fish; and a Wood Stone Corp. rotisserie
for whole chickens, turkey breasts, roast
beef and prime rib.
The owners gutted and refurbished two
private dining rooms. They also added an
open-air terrace that provides diners with
a view of the golf course and the Atlantic
City skyline. The renovation allowed the
club to separate dining and banquet functions, improving service for both.
