Building SF:
A legendary and unique restaurant in CT in continuous operation since the 1980's when this former brush mill dating back to the early 1800's was converted to a 7400sf restaurant on two levels with views of the Pattaconk brook and waterfall. A destination from near and far, the sight and sound of the waterfall capture one's attention when passing over the bridge to the entrance of the restaurant on the lower level which is accessed by a covered footbridge. The rustic 40-seat bar and seating around a stone stacked wood burning fireplace add to the dining experience in this remarkable setting. With chestnut beams throughout and much of the mill components suspended from the ceilings, it is easy to imagine the mill in its earliest days. Much of the original photos and memorabilia remain as testament to the mill's early production of brushes from 1859-1965. On the second level there are 80 seats in the main dining room, two event rooms seating 60 and 40 guests respectively and a small private dining room for 12 guests. Two patios overlook the brook and waterfall seating 18 and 16 guests. All FF& E included. Parking for 90 cars. On site sewage treatment.
Located in a town that is a destination known for its charming and eclectic downtown area and trendy shops, art galleries and restaurants.
Growth & Expansion:
Currently owners are doing dinner only, however, many special event and wine dinners, wedding receptions and seasonal parties are booked throughout the year. Expanding and including lunch would increase cash flow. In all seasons, the ambience and the classic American cuisine attracts diners from near and far.
Support & Training:
This restaurant is best operated by an experienced owner because of the multiple dining areas and event spaces. Income, cash flow, to be shared with qualified buyer.
Reason for Selling:
Owners retiring after 60 years in the restaurant business and moving to Europe
