After the 2004 sale of the Old Dewey House fine dining business, we still needed a job so we were happy to announce the transformation of the ODH garage into our latest enterprise: Grumpy's Goat Shack----a casual, fun, local hangout. The 1927 era garage was too small to park a modern car in but was big enough to create a cozy bar, a small powder room and enough space to serve up some tasty menu options. We provide a place where locals and tourists enjoy a low end alternative without compromising in taste or service because we continue to focus on the three elements that kept us successful in our fine dining operation:
Service, Quality and Consistency.
We were aware the demographic in Teton Valley was changing. A lot of new, younger people were moving into the area, having their first baby and/or building their first home. After experiencing first hand in our dining room the attention span of toddlers, babies, and drunks and their uncontrolled performances in a nice, quiet setting, we decided on the casual concept and because we are only open in the warmer months, we utilize the patio and backyard area where the kids can romp and feed the goats in the pasture while their parents enjoy their cold adult beverages on the patio while still keeping an eye out. The tipplers and smokers can roam in and out as well. Grumpy's is in a small, separate building right next door to the Old Dewey House building and is fun & cozy with eight barstools and a flat screen HDTV. Mike always has sports like the Hockey play-offs, golf, or other entertaining shows. The guys always also enjoy the colorful bra and panty collection on the ceiling and the regulars check for new additions. coming this year Bocce and putting on the new green in the back yard. Plenty of outdoor seating.
