Mallards Has Closed

(Salisbury Daily Times)

Pocomoke City's Mallards on the River closed its doors permanently over the weekend. 
Owner John "Johnny Mo" Morrison announced the closure on the restaurant's Facebook page Sunday, Jan. 13. The eatery opened in 2017 after taking over the $1 million restaurant building in downtown. Previously the building housed Riverside Grill. 
"​It is with extreme regret that I am announcing that we will be permanently closing our newest location, Mallards on the River on Sunday January 13, 2019," Morrison wrote in the Facebook post. "After a 13 month run it has proven to be unsuccessful. It is an accumulation of too many reasons to list, one of them being the long commute from Melfa, VA."


Long before the time of the Riverside Grill and Mallards On The River a retired ferry boat, The Emerson C. Harrington, was brought to the north side of the river at Pocomoke City in 1938 and used as a hotel and restaurant.
