Rich and Chris Meyer opened the place 27 years ago. The Inquiring Iguana can remember huddling at the Inn's bar in the late '80's, avoiding the rain outside, like something out of Casablanca. Rich, ever the welcoming maitre 'd, entertained while Chris made hamburger-magic with what seemed like little more than a hot plate and a microwave in the kitchen, on the other side of the patio seating area.
"Open, relaxed ambience, island breezes, in the middle of everything, yet relaxed and private." Roger, that.
According to the Web site listing, the reason for selling is retirement. "Time for owners to sail away. It has been a great run."
(Several efforts to reach the Lime Inn owners over the weekend were unsuccessful, and the listing Web site, restaurants-for-sale.com, is unknown to the Inquiring Iguana. He's still waiting for confirmation.)
