Rumors are funny things.....

Rumors are funny things… and for the last month or so we have heard that we will be closing in September.  Turns out, I suppose, that others knew something we didn’t. 

This isn’t how we wanted to end things and not how we expected things to go, but here we are anyway, and due to circumstances beyond our control and ones that we were not able to solve, we close on Saturday (September 22, 2018).

We are actually really proud of what we were able to accomplish.  We were able to serve good food, employ a number of people in the area, train a number of young staff up to be able to work in other places effectively, and have a product that we were happy to stand behind.  We have been honoured to work with some wonderful people and there are a lot of things that we will miss and remember with fondness.

We were able to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, wedding and baby showers with a number of different groups, and in one very memorable evening helped a lovely couple celebrate their new marriage.  We met people from all over the world, and enjoyed hearing their stories of how much they love this island and loved seeing it through their eyes, reminding us how beautiful a place this really is.     

We have really enjoyed serving you all and quite honestly did not expect any of this when we opened the doors… or even went into the summer months, and yet, here we are and it’s time to walk away.  So, it is very much with mixed emotions, and heavy hearts that we are closing.  We hope that we have been able to, in some way, provide you with a few good memories.  We know we certainly have plenty.

Yours truly,

Linda & Darin (Lot 45 Pub and Eatery)

10 Months In Review

10 Months In Review

So I usually try to keep my posts to a short length, something easy to read, light, nothing too serious… then of course I didn’t blog for months at a time.  Mostly because I just didn’t know what to say.  A few people want me to just talk about the food, because we are a restaurant.  But we are also first time entrepreneurs....

How to keep your New Years Resolution and still go out to eat?!?!!?

We know half of the joy of eating out is spending time with people you enjoy and not having to clean up after!  Someone asked me recently how to eat out if you are on a diet that isn’t considered consistent with what your restaurant is known for.  So, here are some of the facts....

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

If you have been in the restaurant or seen the pictures we post, you will notice we have a lot of young staff.  I feel like I need to go around and take a few more pictures lately to introduce you to them.  But Darin and I have a philosophy - that everyone needs to learn somewhere.....

I enjoy feedback - I like to know when we are doing a good job, and when we aren't.  And so we have the option on Facebook, Yelp and now Trip Advisor to have you stop by our page and give us a review.

Well....it's mid July.  And it's been a while since I've blogged because, well, holy it's been busy!  This is a good problem to have but I admit blogging hasn't ended up high on my priority list.  You know what else has slipped my list - telling everyone about our great seafood menu for summer!
