Fresh Seafood & Waterfront Dining

Temporary Restaurant Closure
Beginning at 8:00 p.m., Friday July 3
Re-opening Thursday July 16th

I never thought I would have to write this announcement.

We are TEMPORARILY closing our restaurant because we have 2 employees who have been in contact with individuals (outside of work) who have now tested positive for Covid19.

We plan to re-open Thursday, July 16th.

We will require all of our employees get tested and receive a negative result before they can return to work. During that time period we are professionally cleaning the entire restaurant. (yet again)

We are doing this out of an abundance of caution for our staff and of course, you our loyal customers. We feel better being safe than sorry. While I can control our employees work and sanitization environment, I have no control of their lives outside of the workplace.

I hope you and your families have a safe and HAPPY 4th of July weekend.

Until next time PLEASE:

  • Wear a mask
  • Social Distance
  • Wash & Sanitize your hands

GOD BLESS and we are hoping to see you soon.
