Greta Anderson turns 99; celebrates at Anderson’s remodeled location

Call it serendipity or simply great timing.

Greta Anderson of Anderson's custard and roast beef fame turns 99 on Feb. 9 and will celebrate her birthday at the newly remodeled Anderson's Williamsville location (6075 Main St.) that re-opened Feb. 7.

Greta will "go live" at 11 a.m. on Facebook from the swanky new digs. She will answer any burning questions you might have for her (except maybe the Anderson's custard recipe). Or fans can simply wish her a very happy birthday.

Daughter Holly Anderson said, "We decided to remodel the Main Street dining room because of our initiative to improve our ambiance and the experience for our guests. Our mother and entrepreneur Greta Anderson will turn 99 years old on Feb. 9, and we couldn't be more grateful to our parents for their legacy."

Greta and her husband Carl opened Anderson's in 1946. Daughter Holly and her brother Keith are second-generation owners.

Anderson said the Williamsville location closed for 15 days while maintenance director Kevin Duguay coordinated the remodel. The floor was replaced with a porcelain wood-like tile, the walls were refurbished, there is new lighting and new booths.

"We love the results and want to give thanks to the entire team that contributed to our remodel," said Anderson. 

We also have two reasons you might want to check out any Anderson's location: Valentine's Day is right around the corner and we cannot stop looking at the Valentine Ganache Ice Cream Cake on Anderson's website.

We also cannot stop thinking about the delicious fish fry we wrote about last year that has returned for the winter.

The fish fry features super fresh wild caught haddock and is currently available at three locations: 3724 Union Road, 2235 Sheridan Drive and 2369 Niagara Falls Blvd. Starting Feb. 10 it is available at all six locations. The fish fry ($10.99) comes with fries or choice of potato, coleslaw and a roll.
