I just found out our favorite restaurant is closing Friday .
First place I took my wife to in 1972. Friday night all you can eat spaghetti. Back then $1.95...now $8.95, exact same recipe with buttered garlic bread, large salad.
Saltfish for breakfast sometimes.
Homemade desserts, Lemon meringue pie, chocolate cake, banana pudding, hot apple pie with cheese...$2.75.
Flounder...two large pieces best we've had as good as at the beach.
Owner is 90 now! Nicest people.
What a shame!

Exactly. As time goes on those one of a kind small ones are disappearing. It's very much like good home cooked food! So many memories and like family...

Buy it Fuddy????
Well...
retired 10 years and I know zip about the restaurant business!
There are two waitresses I think of that have been there for many years, either or both could run it. It's actually in a pretty decent house, converted to a restaurant years ago. Belongs to owner & wife. They or someone should buy it!
To me it seems nowadays not only do people not want to work there aren't as many entrepreneurs.
Owner lives in a really nice home, nice things...they've done well. I'm sure restaurant business could get stressful.
There are quite a few customers who eat there every day!

Those the type of places I look for. Hate to see it close. We’ve had several like that close here also.

I've seen a lot of my favorite places close over the last 3 years; it's not fun.

Not to demean you in any way Fuddy, but, today is seems like people always suggest that someone else' should step up to the plate and be proactive but not them. My comment is, again, buy it. I get that kind of comment on about every forum I frequent today. People want someone else to do something, but just not them. Kind of how this country is going too. Everyone wants someone else to take step up to the plate, but not them so the country is going down the dumper.
