Schuyler’s Country Kitchen To End Restaurant Operation
LAKEWOOD — A longtime Fairmount Avenue breakfast and lunch spot will be closing its doors at the end of August.
Schuyler’s Country Kitchen, located at 4477 Fairmount Ave., announced via its Facebook page on Sunday that the economic impact of COVID-19 restrictions have changed “how we do business and we will be unable to survive.”
The restaurant, which opened in February 2011, was forced to shut its doors on March 16. They attempted to open up for takeout business on May 1, but never were able to open their dining room.
“I measured 6 feet and could only get four tables through the building and five bar stools,” Deb Schuyler, co-owner with her husband Ernie, told The Post-Journal. “Feeding 25 people and bringing on the staff that would be needed to do that just wasn’t lucrative and we wouldn’t be able to survive that way.”
Schuyler said that she has applied for an essential license to utilize the building in a different way, but was unable to divulge the details at this time.
The business will continue to serve breakfast on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in August from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. through the end of the month. They will also have chicken barbecue dinners will also continue to be available on Saturday’s during the month from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.
