The Northside Sun ran an article on the proposed restaurant looking to open on Spillway Road close to Highway 471. Excerpts from the article:
A new seafood and oyster grill has been proposed for the Rankin County side of the Ross Barnett Reservoir. However, residents of the area seem to dislike the idea.
Niles Bryant, the developer, recently presented the idea to the [PRVWSD] and officials at the reservoir. If the proposal is accepted, the restaurant will rest on a four-acre tract of land, near Eagles Point and Highway 471 and on the north side of the spillway.
Bryant said the grill would have a rustic feel and be family oriented, with opportunities for kids to play while parents eat.
However, the neighbors aren't too excited. "People who live in that residential area don't want it to develop unless it's just more residences," said John Sigman, reservoir general manager.
