The World’s Famous Morris’s Grill was a vital part of the local community in Skaneateles, NY which has sat idle for too long. Although Morris’s Grill will long be remembered as a Historical Landmark institution and local gathering place for all classes of people who passed through it’s doors, it will be wonderful to finally see life again in the location it occupied not so long ago. And we will never forget Darryl “Burt” Lipe who gave so much to the local community in different ways throughout his many years as proprietor of this fine establishment.

The following article is featured on the newly created LakeHouse Pub website,, which explains their vision for this new addition to the local business community of Skaneateles, NY. We welcome them with open arms to our friendly community and wish them great success. You can also visit them on Facebook at: LakeHouse Pub

Dennis Coleman, General Manager of Coleman’s Authentic Irish Pub, announced Thursday, June 14, 2012, at a meeting of the Skaneateles Chamber of Commerce, that Coleman’s will be operating a pub/restaurant at the site of the beloved Morris’s Grill on Route 20 in the village of Skaneateles. Dennis Coleman and two Skaneateles partners, Joseph J. Goethe and Michael J. Wamp, will own the establishment that will be known as the LakeHouse Pub.

In seeking a new bar/pub for the historic site, Seitz Building Associates, LLC, issued a Request for Proposals to interested establishments in May. According to Ted Kinder, speaking for Seitz Building Associates,

Kinder added that Coleman’s is respected in the industry and is known near and far for their well-established, well-run pub in Syracuse.

The LakeHouse Pub will have the look and feel of Coleman’s, designed to fit a lakeside village pub setting. The focal point will be the large, dark oak bar. According to Dennis Coleman, “I’m a third generation publican, so I understand the importance of the history of an establishment and I know how to run a successful pub. Joe Goethe has lived in Skaneateles nearly his whole life and Mike Wamp and his family have lived here for nine years. They are committed to this community and understand first hand the significant role Morris’ played in Skaneateles. We are all honored to help preserve its tradition. We are here for the long haul.”

The partners hope to open the LakeHouse Pub as quickly as possible; if all goes well, before the end of the summer. The menu will include carved sandwiches, soups, and salads. According to Coleman, the pub will continue to feature entertainment on Wednesdays and Sundays, in the tradition of Morris’ Grill and they have plans to add a trivia night, pitch league and a dart league, “to encourage local residents to become fixtures at the newest, oldest pub in town.”
