Yesteryear's Meats & Specialty Shoppe in DeMotte, a regional favorite for more than two decades, opened its new 140-seat restaurant at Rensselaer's Curtis Creek Golf Course on April 1, 2015.

Yesteryear's at Curtis Creek offers a casual menu Tuesdays through Sundays that features starters, burgers and dogs, salads, and wraps, as well as customer-favorite specialties, such as Yesteryear's famous Italian beef. A traditional menu, featuring steaks, baby back ribs, chops, perch, salmon, pasta and more, will be offered Thursdays through Sundays starting in May.

The restaurant is also available for private parties and has options for groups of any size. The Halleck room can be rented out for smaller parties, as can the main dining room, the sports themed full-service bar, and The Porch, which overlooks the golf course. Outdoor seating will be available as weather allows.

Yesteryear's offers all-inclusive family-style catering both at the restaurant and through the specialty shoppe. Customers can purchase the restaurant's sauces, entrees and specialty items at the DeMotte location to enjoy at home.

Guests of Curtis Creek can also golf from early spring to late fall. Established in 1924, the 18-hole, 72-par course features a driving range, practice greens and bunker, and pro shop, and is open seven days a week. Curtis Creek Golf Course offers a week-long kids' camp in July, big-hole golf on select Saturdays, and two night golfing events, featuring translucent golf balls and holes lit with glow sticks and tiki torches, as well as active men's and ladies' leagues.
