(Originally built by Everett W. Crowell in the 1930’s and was used as a grocery store before being operated in the early 1960’s by Merle (Al) Garron as a restaurant.)
Al Garron’s Restaurant
Type of business: Eatery
Owner: Al Garron
Al Garron’s restaurant was located near Prospect Point. Al and his wife had lived in the United States and worked in a ship yard, but after Al retired, they came back to Shag Harbour and he opened a restaurant. He served a rather unique item; clams and gravy. One resident of the area says it was the first time he’d ever heard of something like that, but that it must have been good, because all the young people ordered it. The restaurant was open for about ten years.
