Help 50 Grand During COVID 19

Since 1943, 50 Grand Restaurant & Bar has been a part of Pollock Pines history. As new owners since 2018, we are working to try to keep its history alive for residents and visitors that have shared almost 78 years of GRAND memories.  However, 50 Grand has been hit with many trying times in the last two years, with three excessive storms, summer power outages, and now…these trying times of the COVID 19 pandemic.  This latest trial had forced us to close in May and try to start doing our remodel, since very few people were—rightly so—not going out to dinner.

Unfortunately, because of COVID 19, our permits were delayed even longer than predicted.  There are still costs to keeping a building going, taxes, insurance, power, and our magnificent skeleton crew.  But with no income coming in, we are financially getting tapped out.

Our community has been so emotionally supportive, and we couldn’t be more grateful for that.  But because of the cold molasses pace of everything getting done during COVID 19, and surprise issues that cost more than expected, now we are looking to our community to help us finish capital improvements and remodeling, so we can—at least—start doing curbside service.

The shelter in place orders have affected all of us significantly, and so many people really just want some good food and drinks to go, that is close by, and gives some sort of normality.  WE WANT TO DO THIS FOR YOU TOO! We look to you, our community, our patrons, and those who value small mom and pop businesses that are struggling, like ours, to finish so we can reopen!

We would greatly appreciate your help, so when this is all over, we can rise from this experience stronger, and able to immediately provide you an amazing dining experience that will continue to be shared and last through the generations. Any donations would be immensely grateful. You can also help through #SmallBusinessRelief.

50 Grand, TRULY trying to continue making GRAND memories together!
