Peter’s Clam Bar, a 75-year-old restaurant located on the South Shore, is back after devastation from Superstorm Sandy rendered the building unusable.
The restaurant, located on Long Beach Road in Island Park, sustained severe water damage during 2012’s superstorm. At one point its dining room was submerged under six feet of water and it’s been struggling to recover since then.
Now, two years and millions of dollars later, the restaurant is restored and once again ready to serve the public.
