Arthur and Pat's Restaurant in Marshfield's Brant Rock Has Closed
A South Shore landmark known in part for its breakfasts and seafood dishes has shut down after being in business for nearly 40 years.
According to a couple of readers (and confirmed by the Patriot Ledger), the owners of Arthur and Pat's in the Brant Rock section of Marshfield have decided not to reopen for the season for the first time in its 37-year existence. The Ledger says that De and Art D'Allessandro had been planning to open the Ocean Street eatery for the season during the weekend of April 18 but ultimately made the decision to sell the space--along with a vacant lot and another building they own there. They are now looking to help figure out what comes next for the site, creating a "sort-of think tank" including talking with potential developers, possibly discussing a new location for a dining spot, and hearing ideas from the public. The article says that Shore Things retail store and The Latest Scoop ice cream shop--which reside in their other building--will remain in operation for now.
A Facebook post from Arthur and Pat's says: "We are truly grateful to everyone who touched the handle of our front door, crossed the threshold, and invited us into your lives. It was an honor to feel your presence in our restaurant and a privilege to be of service to you. THANK YOU for your support and trust."
The address for this now-closed restaurant in Brant Rock was: Arthur and Pat's, 239 Ocean Street, Marshfield, MA, 02050.
