There is renewed activity at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Sixth Street in Keremeos these days as the relocated Branding Iron restaurant recently opened its doors on the site of the former Crowbar and Grill.
The popular eatery will be open from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m or later – up to 2 a.m. on special occasion nights.
The Branding Iron’s classic dining continues at the new location, along with a new, extensive bar and grill menu that has something for everyone.
Proprietors Karl Schorb and Suzanne Wood have revamped the interior decor, adding a skylight, new flooring, new lighting and a dropped ceiling around the bar..
“We still have some exterior improvements to do,” Schorb said, noting that there were also a few start up kinks to work out of the system.
Up to 10 employees will be working at the new location, with plans in the works to provide entertainment, including live music, during the evenings after the dining hours are over. One of the first special events to take place will be the Halloween party on October 29.
“We’ve had good response so far,” Wood said of their patrons reaction to the new surroundings.Plans in the near future also call for implementation of an “appy hour” and some menu revisions.
The pair have no plans yet for the former site of the restaurant, which was located near Hilltop Esso.
