[TheRockwallNews.com] (Rockwall) After months of renovation, the long-awaited, lakeside Allure Restaurant at Chandler’s Landing Marina is now open to the public.
Featuring fine dining with spectacular sunset views of Lake Ray Hubbard in the spacious Main Dining Room, casual dining with live weekend entertainment in the Bar & Grill, several banquet & meeting rooms, plus even a wedding facility, Heath residents Pat and Linda Adams have gone to great lengths and much expense to make this new family business successful.
Sons Jason and Parker are helping to manage the restaurant and facilities, where the Adams were married 30 years ago. They’re also former Chandler’s Landing residents and they say the Club has been very much a part of their family’s life for years.
“This is a very special place for us so we have to do it right,” said Pat, who has owned Adams Office Furniture in Dallas at LBJ and Royal Lane for over 25 years.
“Linda and I got married here 30 years ago. One of our sons also had his wedding reception here. We are just so excited!”
“The outpouring of support we’ve received has been just overwhelming. So many people have come in to wish us well. They’re extremely excited, too!”
The Adams have built a wedding gazebo and white sands beach on the lake next to the building, which was previously a private clubhouse reserved for Chandler’s Landing Yacht & Tennis Club members only.
Yacht & Tennis Club memberships can be purchased again now that the large family pool, tennis courts, boat docks and fitness room are being maintained regularly. They have been used extensively all summer long.
