We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily on a property that has been "home" to many well know businesses throughout the decades. In the early 40's, here stood an eatery know as Luke's Lodge.
After several years and the passing of Luke Cole, the restaurant was sold in the 1950's to three local businesses men who built the Surf Hotel.The Surf Hotel existed for a number of years until it was destroyed by a fire in the late 60's. It reopened in the early 70's as Bo Jangles Night Club, and became a local favorite. In the late 70's and 80's the business frequently changed ownership and names;
It was Governor's Martellino and eventually Bobby Valentine's Sports Bar in the late 80's. In the 1990's the bar was sold and became Sports Tickets. It remained so until January 2007, when the building was completely renovated and is now called Tickets Bar and Grille.
