The Patio Restaurant is officially opening today at 4th and Jersey Streets after closing some 15 months ago.

The newly renovated restaurant has conducted a soft opening and is now ready for customers on a regular basis. One of the first changes you will notice is that the main entrance is now located off Jersey Street and not off 4th Street as has been the case for years.
