LINCOLN – There’s a fresh new look at Hogan’s Alley, the 31 Dexter Rock Road restaurant at Lincoln Country Club which recently reopened after renovations. The work includes new carpeting, paint, a new ceiling, dance floor and renovated furniture. When spring arrives in April, there will also be new furniture on the deck overlooking the golf course.

The restaurant, owned by Jim Hogan and managed by Michelle Fried, is open to the public. No golf membership is necessary for dining.

Chef Juan Fernandez is in his third year at the restaurant. In his 25-year career, he’s worked at noted eateries on Federal Hill including Camille’s, as well as a noted seafood restaurant in Providence and the Atwood Grille in Johnston. Currently, he’s offering his winter menu of favorites, including steaks, seafood, and Italian and Mediterranean dishes including Veal Scallopini. There are nightly specials, too, including “$5 Burger Night” Thursdays, a hit for six years now.

Says Fried, “We offer downtown dinner quality at half the price!”

Winter hours are Thursday through Saturday, from 4 p.m. to closing. Beginning April 1, hours expand to Tuesday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. In spring, the menu expands to offer luncheon sandwiches and salads.

Hogan’s Alley, which seats up to 80 guests, is available to rent for functions. Phone 401-334-3925.

Lincoln Country Club is a private 9-hole course in a “rustic setting,” according to Jamie Peloquin, club vice president and House Committee chairman. Golfing will resume around April 1, and the club is offering discounted membership for the coming season. For those who might want to try the course before signing up, a free nine holes, with another member, is offered.
