Mt. Crawford Mrs. Rowe's closed ... building for sale

I picked up on the buzz in the Valley that Mrs. Rowe's second restaurant location in Mt. Crawford, formerly Eavers Restaurant, has reportedly closed and the building is now for sale.

Listed with Dominion Real Estate, there's this tidbit:

Rowe's had been operating a restaurant and catering business at that location. Since it opened only a few years ago, I'm wondering if it was a victim of the downturn in the economy.

Not to worry ... the orginal Staunton Rowe's location is alive and well and thriving at Exit 222 off I-81. That place is packed morning, noon, and night.

Honestly it may be more to do with both Traditions (the Mennonite run buffet which is not that far up the road from Eavers) and also the arrival of Wood Grill Buffet to Harrisonburg.
