The rumors have been floating around, folks have seen kitchen equipment for sale on local auction sights and finally the truth is out. Owner Lisa posted this today on the Sweeney’s Seafood Bar and Grill Facebook page:
It is bittersweet writing this last post to Sweeney’s Seafood Bar & Grill’s loyal customers and fans but I must let you know….Saturday December 3rd, 2022 with be the last day we will be open for business.
I have decided to retire and move to Denver to be with my family. I have been blessed with support and loyalty throughout the last 10 plus years. The memories will be with me forever! I always wanted a to own a restaurant which not only provided top notch food and service but was comfortable and guests considered it a home away from home….I did succeed thanks to all of you! Sweeney’s Seafood Bar & Grill has been more my home than the place I go home to at night so it was a very tough decision. But it is time to start my life’s next chapter. Please know leaving my friends and faces at Sweeney’s has brought continual tears during this decision process. How I wish I could have it all….
Holley and Larry, my two partners, are continuing their travels throughout the world and visiting with their family. Owning a restaurant was something they never imagined in their life but upon reflection would not give up one day of the past 10 plus years for anything. What a great time it has been with all the experiences and so many new friends made at Sweeney’s Seafood Bar & Grill. None of this will ever be forgotten….
Sweeney’s will have regular hours through Saturday night and we kindly ask for reservations if you know in advance you are coming….
Again there is no way to express the Thanks that are in my heart …..Take Care!
Originally opened by Ron and Christine Sweeney 28 years ago, before they sold it and opened SeaJax Tavern in Kettering, Lisa Long and partners bought the 160 seat restaurant in 2012. They listed the restaurant for sale this past October, but without any takers made the decision to close.
