LAKE WYLIE — The old River Rat building is coming back to life. A new restaurant will open there next month, hoping to feed off the success of what was an iconic eatery from its 1979 opening to closing in 2010.
Were going to be opening up at the River Rat location with a new restaurant were calling Twin Rivers, said lifelong local Scott Boyd, one of three main partners behind Twin Rivers. Thats kind of in honor of the South Fork River and the Catawba River.
Marc Biscornet will be the general manager. Breck Fabish is the other partner. The trio hopes to have two invitation-only soft openings prior to a mid-July grand opening. Twin Rivers will be a full-service restaurant and bar, with catering to begin prior to opening. The menu will include prime rib, grilled seafood and steaks, house-ground burgers and a from-scratch childrens menu.
Were really shooting for a farm-to-table concept, Biscornet said.
