Excellent opportunity to own a busy waterfront restaurant in downtown Vinalhaven! Once a long-running casual family restaurant, the current owners revived the building and elevated the atmosphere to include table service, locally inspired dishes, craft cocktails, and live music. These changes were well received by island residents and the new restaurant quickly became a local favorite. The renovation was also praised by a Portland Press Herald food critic as the best renovation of 2019. The new, minimalistic design of the restaurant offers a wonderful opportunity for new owners to make it their own and add to the long list of successful businesses that have operated in this unique space. Perfectly positioned in the center of town and situated over Carver's Pond, the location is ideal for a seasonal restaurant. The restaurant seats 95 guests, 75 guests in the dining room, 20+ guests on the outdoor patio, and also includes a side porch window for ice cream and takeout connected to the kitchen. Above the restaurant, there is a newly renovated and winterized 700+ sq/ft studio apartment where the current owners lived year-round while running the restaurant seasonally, mid May-mid October. The apartment is an open-plan with a bathroom, featuring hand-painted shiplap/nickel gap walls, white oak engineered hardwood floors, Bosch appliances, in-floor radiant heat system, gas fireplace, slate-tiled bathroom, and beautiful views over Carver's Pond. The restaurant comes fully furnished and outfitted for service. A list of appliances, equipment, and updates to the building can be provided upon request.
