We Go Way Back

Cherry Street opened in 1984.  It is actually one building made up of three different buildings now. Originally , was only addresses 55-57. When Kit Wilcox purchased it in 1989, he expanded it to include street addresses 47-55-57. Originally just a bar, Kit, wife Pam, and the kids transformed it into a restaurant / bar, with a 50/50 mix of food and beverages.  READ ALL ABOUT US.
