“We kept the original staff,” Luci told Simcoe Dining.
Mike had been looking around for some time for a restaurant when he discovered that the grill at 1238 Mosley Street was for sale. It’s a high profile location where Mosley meets River Road West, across from the River Bend Plaza.
A few new twists have been added since the recent takeover. Breakfast is now available all day at a reduced price. The addition of a Baby Benny, a smaller serving of Eggs Benedict, is proving popular with customers, especially seniors.
As a testament to their growing popularity, they had 71 reservations for a single sitting Thanksgiving dinner – a full house.
New lunch items include Coney Island style supersize and regular hot dogs in several combinations. Added to the menu are tuna and egg salad sandwiches, and a variety of wraps. Salad offerings now include a Caesar, Greek and Chef.
Many menu items have been reduced in price.
Complementing the hamburger list are the new chicken, veggie and slider burgers. The slider trio includes beef, chicken and pulled pork with fries and coleslaw for $7.95.
Meatballs are now available to add to your spaghetti dinner and, new in the hot entrée lineup, are a hot meatloaf and hot roast beef.
Hours are 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every day of the week except Friday when the hours are extended to 8:00 p.m. for fish night, featuring Halibut at $10.95.
Mike and Luci are presently offering a special Halibut Fish & Chips coupon – after you’ve enjoyed nine Halibut fish dinners, you get one $10.95 Halibut dinner free. Haddock fish and chips are available every day.
A kids menu features such items as fries at $1.75 and chicken fingers at $3.50, along with the usual hamburger and hot dog offerings.
Groups such as Probus, cycling and other active clubs continue reserving tables for breakfast and lunch meetings and awards presentations.
“We have new suppliers,” Luci said, adding that, “our customers are already noticing the positive changes we have made.”
“We’re new to Wasaga Beach,” Luci said. Following many visits over the years, they recently moved to the area and, she said, they are already involved in local charities.
A glance around at the restaurant walls reveals samples of Luci’s smaller paintings and – bonus for art lovers – most are for sale! For anyone interested, she noted that her larger works may be viewed at the Matilda Swanson Gallery in Clarksburg.
