    It was great food, and a great atmosphere in West Palm Beach. But most especially ~~ The Grogs~~ don’t remember what they were made of, but as newly weds in the 70’s, we enjoyed many evenings at The New England Oyster House.

    Worked at the homestead location in 1980 as a waitress. Fun times! Piña coladas in pineapples! Then moved to coral gables location as head hostess. Met great peeps! Only bad memory was being robbed at the cash register with a gun 2 feet from my chest at the cash register. I’ll never forget that guy backing down the entry and holding my breath until he got out the door!

    My family in Silver Spring MD knew the owner, Lenny Loffler (sp?), his wife was the daughter of my parents’ friends, the Mills. It was boom time and Lenny had a Cessna 310 that he would fly up to Maryland in. Long gone now, as this was in the 1950’s.
