If it’s possible to involve future customers and create excitement in a business before it opens, restaurateur Eddie Riegel seems to be doing just that.
Riegel plans to bring back the legendary Seafood Shanty restaurant, a once-popular dining chain that went bankrupt in 1993.
“Honestly, oh my God, I just pinch myself every day,” said Riegel, who lives with his wife, Bonnie, in Exeter Township. “I’m excited, I’m scared, I’m happy, I’m sad. It’s a rollercoaster of emotions. It’s a very emotional time.”
