Historic tavern closing after 162 years

The Marilla Grill, a restaurant that has been a landmark in Marilla for 162 years, is closing its doors. Sunday will be the last day, said its owner of 30 years, Jeff Lewinski.

Lewinski declined to disclose specific reasons for closing the restaurant, which he said his family has owned for 70 years.

“I’m 52 years old,” he said. “It’s time to do a job that isn’t so stressful.”

He is hopeful that the historic tavern will find a new owner who will reopen it.

“I took care of it,” he said. “It’s been a great 30 years. The neighbors have been fantastic.”

The Marilla Grill is located at 11591 Bullis Road, Marilla.
