A long time restaurant in Surf City is closed for good.
Owner of Crabby Mike’s Douglas Dahlberg said he has closed his restaurant, because of construction on the new bridge.
“This is my life from 12 years right here,” Dahlberg said.
Dahlberg has spent those last 12 years running Crabby Mike’s in Surf City until now.
“We’re closed for good,” Dahlberg said.
Dahlberg said it all started about a month ago when he contacted the NC DOT about parking concerns because of construction.
“I called Chad Kimes,” Dahlberg said. “About halfway through the conversation, he dropped a bomb on me that they were going to acquire the building through condemnation and take the property, because they made a mistake.”
