Here’s one thing I’ve learned since living in the dirty Brunstank of Georgia. Nothing survives here – people do, even though you wouldn’t know it, but that is it.
You drive down Newcastle St into Downtown Brunswick and there is nothing but closed signs (besides St. Vincent’s Thrift store and a few antique / jewelry shops). I guess it’s just that food doesn’t survive here. At least not in the way it should. Restaurants last maximum a year to a few months, except the lucky (take that word lightly) few.
Since I’ve moved here, I’ve already seen the going of too many places to eat. Cargo’s Portside Grill, Legends, Jim’s Corner Cafe, Bourbon St., Spanky’s (Mall-side),The Oyster Shak changed management and their name to The Shak- which I hear won’t last much longer, and now Brew Burgers is going under.
It’s a shame. Surely something should make it. Fox’s Pizza Den seems about the only sustainable restaurant (no shocker, it’s a franchise).
But I found a place Downtown that seems to be doing quite well. Indigo Coastal Shanty. Can’t wait to write a review about it. Look for it soon.
Until then, I’ve learned to keep my business ventures away from Brunswick, GA in general. Unless you have the right location and can market to these locals- you’re out of luck.
