An official grand opening event will be held at the new Grumpy’s restaurant, 5629 Main St., Aug. 6 to 8 in celebration of the renovations being completed.
“We’ve done floor to ceiling renovations,” said Grumpy’s owner Casey Mulvaney-Pollock. “We were going to make some changes, but we got going and we decided to do the whole space. We have new flooring, tables and chairs, custom artwork, fresh paint, new lighting and we added ergonomically designed sound panels to limit the noise.”
In addition to its regular hours of 8 am to 2 pm, 7 days a week, Grumpy’s will park its food truck in front of the restaurant Friday, Aug. 6 and Saturday, Aug. 7 from 2 to 8 pm. “We’ll be giving away a basket of Grumpy’s goodies and a free, freshly-baked cookie to anyone who orders a Garbage Salad or a meal,” Mulvaney-Pollock said. Hourly drawings for $10 Grumpy’s gift cards will also take place during the weekend event.
Mulvaney-Pollock is happy to introduce a fully staffed and trained team to the community. “We’ve got a beautifully renovated space, friendly staff and delicious, high-quality food. We’re really trying to elevate the local diner experience.”
