Application Deadline Has Been Extended On New Restaurant

The application deadline has been extended so if you are interested and have what it takes to be a restaurant operator please apply.  There is a link below to take you to all the information you need.

The new restaurant being constructed in downtown Pocomoke City on the Pocomoke River didn't seem like it would be able to seat 150 diners when I took this photo in November of 2011. 

These  photos were taken  January 20, 2012 and it makes the 3,035 sq. ft. restaurant and bar more of a reality.
It is amazing the changes that can take place in just a few days.
And on Friday, February 3, 3012 some window frames had been put in. 
When completed the restaurant will have a full view of the Pocomoke River and offer free boat docking along the deck of the river.

Town waits for firm restaurant proposal

POCOMOKE CITY -- Pocomoke City officials have extended the application deadline for restaurateurs interested in taking over the town's new riverfront eatery.

There's no hard sell-by date, only a flexible deadline of mid-March, according to City Manager Russ Blake. Previously, Town Hall had set Feb. 1 as a deadline.

Three or four operators have expressed interest in the possibility of opening at the restaurant, and while "we're hoping to receive formal proposals from at least that many," Blake said, he declined to give any names of interested parties.

"They're exploring the lead, and there may be reasons they have that they don't want everyone to know they're considering a new location. Until there's a formal proposal, it's really just in discussions at this time," he said.

The town is seeking someone with prior experience in running a restaurant and bar. Qualified applicants will have significant experience -- and, for stronger applicants, the city is willing to be "quite flexible" on rent for the first year or two, Blake said.
