‘That’s all I can say’: New tenant in place at old Fisherman’s Wharf

The building at 210 Hwy. 98 is seeing renovations as a new restaurant will soon be moving into the location.

The old Fisherman’s Wharf is getting some TLC as new wood paneling and some landscaping is in progress at 210 Hwy. 98.

 “We are just doing a facelift, it just needed some renovation,” said County Commissioner Kelly Windes, who is part of the group that owns the property the restaurant sits on.

Windes added that a tenant has been found to replace the Fisherman’s Wharf but could not elaborate as he is under a confidentiality agreement.

“It’s going to be a new restaurant in the spring,” he said. “That’s all I can say about it right now.”

The restaurant, which originally opened in 1995, closed for business back in November. At the time, it was said that death of the restaurant’s owner was the main reason for its closing.
