Bring Back Morris's Grill Fanpage
The doors opened at 6p.m. and shortly thereafter the pub was packed and remained that way most of the night. It was a familiar sight that I remember from days long past when the site housed Morris’s Grill and many of the same former patrons came out to show their approval and enjoy the opening of a new establishment in this landmark location.
Patrons filed in and out the doors throughout the night expressing their support and approval of the new establishment to the employees and their fellow patrons alike. And everyone behaved in an orderly fashion during this grand opening.
A few of the patrons expressed their feeling that the music was a little too loud and they had to yell for their friends to hear them, but all in all it appears that a wonderful time was had by all those who attended.
Upon speaking to Dennis Coleman after last call he expressed his feeling that “it was a great success” and so it appears that the LakeHouse Pub will continue a long tradition of establishments that were housed in this location which somehow continues to attract 100s of patrons to attend.
At one point during the evening, a patron and local resident turned and asked me how this place can draw the people it does when a similar establishment across the street had hardly any patrons, my response was, it’s the location and just has always been the place where people gathered to socialize, just as they did when it was Morris’s Grill, McClaren’s before that, and Henessey’s before that.
I also believe it has a great deal to do with the fact that people have been waiting for so long now for something to open up in this location which once housed the legendary Morris’s Grill for so many years and was the place where they all gathered to socialize.
I, for one, am very happy to see it finally have life in it again and I think I can speak for everyone when I say many thanks to Joe Goethe, Mike Wamp, and Dennis Coleman for making this dream a reality for all the residents of Skaneateles.
