Well this makes us kinda sad…
We learned early Monday morning that Spyglass restaurant and bar will close its doors for good this weekend. After nearly three years of owning Spyglass, Brent and Mona Wardlaw will serve their last drink this Sunday night before holding a private dinner service for their staff.
“We hate to leave, but it’s for our health and for the best reasons,” Brent said Monday. “We’ve loved it here. We’ve made some great friends here. It’s a very special pace to us.”
Brent and Mona became owners of Spyglass back in 2011. Originally from Texas, the couple left their stateside jobs to oversee the business along with their son Josh. In the years since, they’ve been known for their lovely southern hospitality and fun happy hours.
According to Brent, the two plan to head back to Texas where they will focus on Brent’s health while pursuing other opportunities.
From what we’ve heard, it seems like Joe from Waterfront Bistro will be taking over the place. We’re not sure what his plans are other than a major renovation.
In the meantime, stop by Spyglass this week and give this wonderful couple a proper sendoff. They’ll be open Tuesday through Sunday. Lunch is served from noon to 3 p.m.; happy hour is from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and dinner is from 6 p.m. until… Well until it ends. 🙂
Best wishes folks.
