Enjoy a Thanksgiving Feast at Arroyo Trabuco

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year. It’s a good time to reflect on the things and the people in life that you are thankful for. And, it’s a great day to eat delicious food until you feel fully content and satisfied.

Join us at Arroyo Trabuco for a Thanksgiving Celebration!

We are hosting a Thanksgiving Buffet, full of everyone’s favorite dishes, on Thursday, November 28, from 11am-4pm.

In keeping with tradition we will be carving turkey and serving roasted sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing and green beans. But, this isn’t regular old Turkey Day fare. The Turkey will be smoked, and the stuffing is the good stuff: sourdough apple sausage stuffing. We will also have: a prime rib carving station; a delicious selection of seafood including shrimp, crab & oysters; seared salmon; roasted vegetables; an assortment of delectable desserts and much more!

With our Buffet array we feel sure that anyone who comes will be left with several options for what to eat on the celebrated day.

Space is limited. RSVP today. Call (949) 305-5100.

Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club Announces New Executive Chef Tom Capretz

Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club welcomes chef Tom Capretz as its new Executive Chef. Mr. Capretz joined the Mission Viejo golf club’s restaurant in July after a long run at Montage Laguna Beach.

Capretz, an Orange County native, has already begun adding his culinary touches to the contemporary California cuisine served on the O’Neill’s Bar & Grill menu. He’s currently working on seasonal specialties for the upcoming fall season.

Capretz has a diverse cooking background, but his specialty is Italian cuisine, which he learned by enrolling in the Apicius Culinary School in Florence, Italy, where he refined his skills and technique. His original cooking influence comes from the Cajun, and Creole cuisine served by his grandmother on trips to New Orleans in his youth. Capretz would watch her masterfully create gumbo, jambalaya, catfish etouffee, po boy sandwiches and other signature Louisiana cuisine. That experience inspired a desire in him, he says, to enjoy cuisine from all cultures.

Professionally, Capretz got his start at Culinary School at Orange Coast College before landing his first job at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. At this five-star resort hotel, Capretz was able to gain a vast variety of kitchen knowledge, which he then applied in a move to Las Vegas to work at Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in Caesars Palace. The value of teamwork and dedication was embedded in Chef Capretz in helping the Mesa Grill earn a Michelin Star.

Capretz’s training in Italy followed his time in Las Vegas and led to his return to Southern California as the Sous Chef at Andrea, a critically acclaimed restaurant in the Resort at Pelican Hill. After his brief time at Andrea, Capretz moved on to Studio at Montage Laguna Beach. Studio is the signature restaurant that combines French and California influences. Capretz would later become garde manger chef at Montage, overseeing menu development, recipes, and training among other duties.

Capretz now oversees the culinary operation at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club, which includes O’Neill’s Bar & Grill, Golf Tournaments, Banquets, and Weddings.

About O’Neill’s Bar & Grill:

O’Neill’s Bar & Grill at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club prides itself on being a hidden gem for avid golfers and foodies alike in Orange County. Its signature BBQ entices both with the smell of meats prepared from a smoker on the patio overlooking the 18th hole and Saddleback Hills. The tranquil design and architecture of O’Neill’s enhances the rustic feel inside and serene outdoor patio overlooking the lake.

Unlike most golf courses, O’Neill’s offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a Sunday brunch. O’Neill’s boasts a welcoming atmosphere, top-notch service, spectacular views and a beverage menu highlighted by craft beers, signature cocktails and an award-winning list of hand-selected wines.

Regulars and guests alike are encouraged to visit Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club to experience and enjoy how Chef Capretz evolves the dining experience at O’Neill’s to continue to make it one of the best in Orange County.

O’Neill’s features a full-service bar, including its own draft lager, and flat-screen HD televisions. The patio and fireside areas are the perfect dining experience — quietly tranquil and effortlessly comfortable.

O’Neill’s offers a variety of events, including a weekly Champagne Brunch on Sundays (live entertainment from 10:00am-2:00 pm), Live Jazz on Thursday and Friday, with Live Blues on Saturday (5:00pm-9:00 pm). The restaurant creatively integrates the leisure of a golf course with the refinement and indulgent pleasure of fine dining.
