History of 18 East
I'm a retired police officer,
and just got tired of golfing every day. So, instead of being
a Wal-Mart greeter, I found a restaurant in Sweetser, Indiana.
(population 323) After about 10 really good years, I was absolutely
sick of the winter!
A couple folks bought me out,
so the search was on for a warmer spot to live! 39 states, 12,000
plus miles later I got all the way to Sebring, and called some golf
buddies from Indiana that had translplanted to Sebring... two
weeks later, I owned a house in Sebring, too! Crazy, huh?
After applying to several
restaurants to do about anything they'd let me do, AND not getting a
single response... I started looking for my own spot. After
looking for about nine months, I saw a building in Avon Park with "lots
of potential!" Seven months of tough renovations and hoop jumping,
I was able to open Eighteen East... Restaurant and Bar!
So, I hired some really good
hearted folks, and started what we now have. We
all try really hard to give you a great
dining experience. Most of the time we succeed, but if something's
wrong, give us a chance to make it right before you yell at us! We
just want a good time too.
