It looks like an iconic oceanside inn and Restaurant on the South Shore will soon be returning.
According to an article in Wicked Local, the Fairview Inn has received approval by town selectmen to open back up as early as June 23, more than a year and a half after it shut down when the Brant Rock place went up for sale and the restaurant operators left to open Disch's Route 53 Tavern in Pembroke. Last fall, plans were put in place for a new owner to open a spot called the Oceanview Grille at the Fairview Inn, but the plans ultimately fell through after the owner did not open the restaurant in a timely manner and the town voiced concerns about the owner's business practices. The current group includes building owners John and Robert Clancy along with management team Robert Pruitt and Liz Bruce, with Pruitt being the manager on the liquor license and finishing up his work at the White Elephant in Nantucket this summer. (It looks like the restaurant may be BYOB at the start, as the board's approval of the license still has to be reviewed by the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission.)
At this point in time, it appears that the Fairview Inn would be open for lunch and dinner daily, with a brunch offered on Sundays.
The address for the Fairview Inn is 133 Ocean Street, Marshfield, MA, 02050.
