Owner Linda Roland sent an email to patrons Monday announcing she is retiring after 18 years of fun, laughter, good food, and good wine:
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:A popular watering hole for many in the area, South River's friendly atmosphere along with their outdoor dining offering scenic views of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains will be missed by locals as well as those who make it a point to stop by while passing through the area.
On July 2, 2011, South River Restaurant & Wine Shop will close. After 18 years of restaurant ownership in the Valley, Linda Roland is retiring.
We thank you, so much, for your support over the years and for your friendship and loyalty.
Sincerely, South River Restaurant & Wine Shop
p.s. Don't miss live music by Gary & Bootsie on Saturday, July 2nd as we say goodbye with great music, wonderful friends, and of course: outstanding food!
Here's a hearty thanks to Linda for the good food and fun times. South River will be missed.
