The Krazy Fish Grill on Front Street which was closed down earlier this week will reopen next week with a new name under new ownership.
Rhonda and Tim Morris, who own the building at 619 Front Street, closed the Krazy Fish after the majority owner was arrested on charges of solicitation of prostitution.
The new restaurant WildFish Grill will open in the location Wednesday.
Jerry Hebert, who owns a bar and a restaurant in Charlotte, is opening the new establishment and is spreading the word that Kenneth Terry, the former owner who was arrested, no longer has anything to do with the business.
“I have had at least a hundred people stop and tell me thank you for getting him out of here,” Hebert said, referring to Terry.
Hebert said Scott Whitaker and Duff Ramsey, who co-owned the business with Terry, will remain as his co-owners. He said Whitaker and Ramsey were never accused of any wrongdoing.
“We will be a clean and good member of the community,” Hebert said.
Rhonda Morris told the Georgetown Times late Thursday “We’re happy to have them. I think they will be a better addition to Front Street.
“As the building owners, we were getting a lot of complaints about them.”
She said the new restaurant operation “Is supposed to have a better menu, a more professional staff.”
