Asked By LBI Guy on May 19, 2011
Subject: No More Sandpiper!?
I was driving to my house today and saw a "For Lease" sign on The Sandpiper restaurant in Surf City. I tried it a couple of times and it seemed ok to me...anyone know what happened?

Their website answers your question!

"To all of our wonderful customers, we are sorry to say that we have lost our lease and are forced to close our doors. We will miss everyone and hope you all have a wonderful summer. Thank you for your support."

It's tough making a go of any business with basically a 3 month season - you're paying rent/mortgage, insurance, taxes, etc for 12 months but only getting income for 3 months.

Thanks...I didn't know they had a website. Sorry to see it go. Like I said, I thought it was ok..not great but not bad. They seemed like a nice family trying to make a go of it. Good luck to them!

So if they lost their lease, one might ask "Why is there a "For Lease" sign on the building?" There must be more to the story.

Submitted By The Answer Man on May 22, 2011
The term "lost our lease" can mean many things.

It can mean that the rent went up and they could not afford it, or that other factors weighed in on ceasing the business.

Was upset to see that the Sandpiper was closed. Clearly one of the better places to eat on the island ,welcomed children with open arms. Very nice family always friendly and wonderful to all the customers. Food was plentiful, tastey and fairly priced. Not sure where to eat now. We wish the family well in whatever they do. We will miss them.
