Bill Murray has finally opened his Caddyshack-themed restaurant in Chicago and it’s everything you imagined it to be and more.
Released back in 1980 and based on a script from Murray’s brother Brian Doyle-Murray, Caddyshack has garnered a cult following in the years since and is widely considered to be the best sports comedy of all time.
Back in 2016, Murray first revealed plans to open a Caddyshack-themed restaurant alongside his brothers Andy, Brian, Ed, Joel and Johnny.
Now, nearly two years on, the restaurant has opened in Chicago and it sounds like the perfect stop-off for anyone with a love of all things Murray i.e. anyone with any taste.
Caddyshack the restaurant also boasts arguably the best slogan too, with customers invited to “Eat, Drink, and Be Murray.”
The restaurant serves a selection of enticing dishes from cheeseburgers and potato golf balls to Caddyshakes. Ribs and big slices of bacon also come as standard while vegetarians can tuck into stuff like Buffalo Brussel sprouts.
Murray fan will lovethe décor too, which includes memorabilia from films like Groundhog Day and Space Jam as well as classic Caddyshack quotes.
Speaking at the press conference held to mark the opening of the restaurant, Murray reflected on the enduring popularity of Caddyshack.
“Ted Knight was a really stupid funny guy. Harold Ramis was directing it. Douglas Kenney, one of the greatest comic minds, wrote it. And Rodney Dangerfield, one of the most dangerous people you’ve ever come across. You think you want to party – careful.”
Murray was also keen to stress that the restaurant would be using paper straws, noting that his marine biologist son has stressed just how bad the plastic ones are for the planet.
