Old favorites and some new twists at Caddie Shack
NORTH CANAAN — The recently renovated Caddie Shack has been a great success since opening in April. Keith Ohler, owner of the Steppin’ Stone in North Canaan, is one of the new proprietors of the Caddie Shack. When what was known for many years as the Snack Shack went up for sale, he saw a great opportunity to bring the community involvement back to North Canaan. The name is not the only change that Ohler made. While customers can still enjoy their favorite original Texas foot-long hot dogs, onion rings and handcut fries, the menu has been updated. The Caddie Shack now also offers catering. Parties of any size can be accommodated; recently 100 guests enjoyed dinner under the pavilion along with mini golf. Ohler hopes to bring more entertainment to the Caddie Shack. Some possibilities are a drive-in movie and an open band night. During Railroad Days in North Canaan, the Caddie Shack hosted an ice cream eating contest.The Caddie Shack is a seasonal business. Ohler said he intends to close around Columbus Day weekend in October. The business has been consistently steady and he said he hopes to stay as busy for the rest of the summer.
