Regarding the former Bernard’s Surf, the building has been vacant since 2010! Current owner Luke Johnson purchased the building $625,000 after purchasing it as a foreclosure sale in May 2012 after Rusty Fischer sold it to new owners for $1.8MM in Nov 2006 who later closed the restaurant in 2010 (that is when the Surf closed)!
There was some discussion from the new owner to redevelop the property into an artisan bakery/restaurant with a rooftop bar but alas that did not materialize. The property is still for sale for $1.1MM as a vacant commercial parcel (current building was beyond salvage). If anyone wishes to buy it please contact Roy Berry- real estate agent at Trafford Realty 321-636-3131.
