New Hawk Springs restaurant owner hopes to bring town back to life

Posted: Updated:

A new restaurant owner in Hawk Springs is hoping he can help bring the town back to life.

In an effort to try to improve the Hawk Springs community, Dennis Simmons opened 'The Emporium' six weeks ago. Simmons says the name stems from wanting customers to feel like they're at more than a restaurant.

The Emporium also sells antiques and collectibles. The building acted as a grocery store, a home, and a restaurant once before. 

Simmons says the town went by the wayside over the years and there is a need to bring it back.

"So I've kind of backed off what I was doing in the construction business and decided to make this my ongoing business now and my love," says Simmons. "So I've put a lot of effort in it and just want to put out a good product for people. Good food."

Simmons says the restaurant changes up the menu and serves all types of food, but you can bet a great steak will always be on it.
