Czech Point Restaurant and Pub, located in the former Teddy's building, will open its doors on Wednesday, June 29. The restaurant has been completely remodeled and restored to its historic appearance.
Paul Dvorak, owner, is a former Tama County resident, a Clutier High School graduate and felt that Clutier needed a restaurant and pub. Dvorak said, "I look forward to seeing Tama County residents again."
Dvorak felt that it was important to return the building to it's historic appearance and has spent many months renovating to achieve this. The crew has been working on this since December of 2010 and has uncovered windows in the now dining area that have been covered since the 1970s.
One of the centerpieces of the restaurant is the original walk-in cooler behind the bar. It has been completely restored to it's original glory down to the original Fridgedair sticker on the front of the unit.
Another attraction is the murals that are being painted in the dining room side of the building. One of the murals is of a farm scene and the other is of the Clutier water tower. The murals are being painted by Jane Hrabak of Belle Plaine.
The dining area can seat up to 55 people with a total capacity of 85 in the building.
The pub side of the establishment will have a sports bar theme with the addition of four 42" flat screen TV's.
The restaurant will feature Czech cuisine with Gloria Hlas cooking. They will also have steak and other American cuisine. In the future they plan to also serve homemade baked goods.
The restaurant will be open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Thursday through Saturday, 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The pub will be open Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday 7 a.m. - Midnight; Saturday, 11 a.m. to Midnight and Sunday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
