The slicing is always good at Bunker Hill Golf Course.

Well, probably not at the tee, but certainly when chef Roger Hardman takes his carving knife to juicy roast prime rib and ham during Bunker Hill’s popular Easter Buffet, at Bunker’s Grill.

“The Easter Buffet gets families together to relax and spend time together, without some family members being stuck in the kitchen all day,” says Chadly Gibson, general manager of Bunker Hill. “After they eat, many guests like to hang out on the deck and enjoy the golf course view, or others might move on to play our full swing golf simulators. This isn’t an eat and go event. We encourage people to stay and have fun.”

For the first time, the Bunker Hill Easter Buffet, on Sunday, April 21, will have a breakfast option, featuring an omelet-egg station. The breakfast buffet will be served from 8:00 to 10:45 a.m. and will cost $13.75 for adults; $9.75 for juniors (5-11 years)/seniors (60+).

Buffet prices include soft drinks, tax and gratuity.

Brunch, including breakfast and a tossed salad buffet, will be served from 11:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., and will cost $19.75 for adults; $14.75 for juniors/seniors. The dinner buffet, featuring fried chicken and a carving station with prime rib, ham and leg of lamb, will be served from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and will cost $26.75 for adults; $19.75 for juniors/seniors. Kids four and under eat free.

“Because of the popularity of our Easter Buffet, reservations are required,” Chad cautions. You can make reservations by calling 330-725-1400, option 2.

Bunker Hill also will host buffets on Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving Day.

But you don’t have to wait until Easter to enjoy delicious Bunker’s Grill fare. The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner and now has begun to serve breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 8:00 a.m. to noon.

“Our build-your-own omelet has been an immediate hit since we started doing breakfast last month,” Chad says. “For $6.99 your own custom omelet comes with hash browns and toast.”

And you have to have one of Chef Roger’s handmade cinnamon rolls, Chad insists.

“It’s nice to see groups coming in before or after church to enjoy a good breakfast and relax,” Chad says. “Our deck overlooking the course is a beautiful place to spend a weekend morning.”

For the past three years, Bunker’s Grill also has been a delectable place to enjoy a Lenten meal, Chad notes. Through Good Friday, April 19, the restaurant will feature a special Friday night Lent menu between 4:00 and 9:00 p.m.

“The cod is our biggest seller, but the hand-cut salmon filet with an orange Galliano glaze is my personal favorite,” Chad says.

Bunker’s Grill offers North Atlanta battered cod with two sides for $12.75, or baked cod, house-seasoned, Cajun or lemon peppered with two sides, for $13.00.

“Pierogies or eggplant Parmesan are always popular among people who aren’t big fish eaters,” Chad suggests.

Reservations are required for the Friday night Lent dinners—you can make yours by calling 330-725-1400, option 2.

Bunker Hill, Chad emphasizes, is a fantastic place for parties and banquets.

“Our grounds and facilities are ideal for bridal showers, wedding rehearsals, reunions, business meetings and graduation parties,” he says. “We have a gazebo at the No. 2 hole where people love to take photos overlooking the golf course. Then you can move to the third hole and take spectacular shots on the beautiful lake and enjoy some appetizers. We have multiple venues where the actual dinner and event can take place, like our golf simulator room, our deck, our patio or the restaurant.”

Parties in those locations average $20 to $25 per person and feature two main entrees—like beef tips or chicken Parmesan—with salad, vegetable and bread.

Less formal barbecue parties can be held at the Bunker Hill pavilion. Serving burgers, brats or barbecue chicken, the cost averages only $10 to $15 per person.

“The pavilion can accommodate 120 people under cover and another 100 outside,” Chad says. “Whatever the venue, the best part is that we take care of all of the setup, the cooking and the cleanup. After the party you can go home to a clean house and an untrampled yard.”

All venues offer a full-service bar.

“We specialize in fundraisers and special events,” Chad says. “We make your fliers, we set up sponsorship levels, we create a Facebook and a custom web page where attendees can register online, we emcee the event, do the cooking and clean-up and make all the signs and banners. All the host has to do is spend time with the guests.”
