New restaurant planned for former Seafood Shanty location

SPRING TWP., Pa. - Work is underway to replace the former Seafood Shanty restaurant in Spring Township with a new dining establishment.

Jim Lukens, owner of Austin's Restaurant & Bar, also in Spring Township, and other restaurants around the region, announced plans Friday for his newest venture.

Coastal Grille is set to open this September in the Broadcasting Square shopping center, Lukens said.

The building has been vacant since Seafood Shanty closed last August. The site has also been home to Mason's Chop House and Pizzeria Uno.

Coastal Grille's menu will feature about 60 percent seafood and, like Austin's, the restaurant will offer a causal, upscale dining experience, Lukens said.

In addition to his first restaurant, Austin's, Lukens owns J.B. Dawson's Restaurant and Bar locations in Lancaster, Langhorne and Newark, Del.
