This I hated to see. Gracie O’Malley’s, a restaurant in Simmons Bayou open less than a year, showed up in the MLS for sale after posting a closed sign on the marquee earlier in the week. This place has unbelievable views overlooking the bay from its more than 300 square feet of quality decks off the dining area. The owner, Doc McKay, who has also owned and run the Tradin’ Post out on the Cape since the ’80s, pulled out all the stops when he built this and it was a lovely place to relax after work, especially just now as the weather’s warming up a bit and the days are getting longer.
The food was great, too, with the chef team in the kitchen from Beachcombers days, Mark and Bill. The seafood platter was easily enough for two, and their she crab soup was reason enough alone to justify stopping in.
According to the MLS, the real estate (roughly 2 1/2 acres on 122 feet of waterfront), business, equipment and licenses are all included for the $895,000 price tag.
