If you've ever dreamed of owning a beach style restaurant, look no further than Captain John's of Sylvan Beach. You can buy a classic Central New York restaurant that has been open for business for over 47 years.

On June 17th, The Rome Sentinel reported that Captain John’s reopened and showed off that it was remodeled. The Tiki Bar was completely redesigned into the Shipwreck Bar and Grill and a new grill menu was put together.

“We did a lot of remodeling, and we repainted the facility, from top to bottom,” co-owner Andy Brown said. “We couldn’t open during the pandemic, so we took advantage of the time. We just hope our customers will enjoy it.”

Brown continued, saying Key West-type colors were used to give Captain John’s a more lively feel reminiscent of a place off the coast of Florida, with many nautical themed items on display. On top of this,  Outdoor dining on the patio was also added."

All of these changes were done within the last 60 days during the pandemic.
