Hurricane perhaps?  More likely just another failed restaurant in these tough times.

What is this building used for, John.  It looks like the parking lot is in need of some repair so I can't even tell if it is currently in use or not.  Very interesting.

I sure the building would have quite a tale to tell.

Hey, John. I would think that this building can once again become a great place. Thanks, Jim

Why do I smell pancakes coming from that place?  And I'm all the way across country in California:-)

That building was a restaurant / lounge for many years in Cape Canaveral known as George's Steakhouse. In the early days the manager fired Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers for playing too many original songs. The Legendary Groove Monsters with David Feister were regulars when it was known as T-Bones. You could say it was a pretty hot spot to go on a Friday night. It became a Mexican restaurant which failed and then disrepair set in. I'll post more of it's history soon.

I grew up off Justamere rd. in Cape Canaveral from 1976 to 1981. I use to ask mom if I could ride up to Pantry Pride (grocery store)with my friends on my bicycle down A1A. I use to pass this place it was Georges Restaraunt. Our family ate there a time or two. It was the stone work on the front of the close up shop that gave it away along with the sharp cornered roof line. There use to be a homeless guy we called Johnny Walker that use to walk up and down the street near this old restaraunt. Some say he had shell shock from Vietnam. OH the good old memories of going exploring on bicycles with the neighborhood kids.

Jim - I have been here for 20 years but my wife grew up in the Cape as a kid and remembers those early days quite well. At one time, she was a server at George's. Her Mom used to complain about all the tourists and development ruining her nice little community and too many people on the beach. :-)
