Mean guy that owns it? A female owns it & her name is Jenny, her ex husband is named Richard. Do you get the name of the bar/restaurant now? Jenny also owns all of the commercial rental property that shares the same parking lot as PR's. You need to look into your information resources.

Egg off of my face? HMMMM...then why is my business office space rent paid to Jenny Carmichael, or her niece every month? Yes, across from McDonald's & in between Uncle Bucs Gas & PR's. I have only rented this business space for approx. 3 years. Do I have a new landlord & am still paying Jenny?

All I can say is I was just by there earlier and it was open..there were people sitting outside eating...there was a sign advertising a special deal...cars in the parking lot..sooooo I don't know what you are talking about.

I sure hope it stays open. They still do and and have always had great food and some of the best sweet tea you can get. Don't know how it is at night, I've only ever been during the day, but it's a local landmark and I can't say I've ever had a bad experience there at all.

I wish their business the best and hope they stay open for many many years to come.

I don't care who the owner is, I would be soooo very sad if I couldn't get their unbelievably good sweet tea. Please stay open!!!

Gee ya'll get ticked off so easy. jdub is right. Jenny hasn't owned PR's in years. The last owner I met was Mark. It is quite possible for Jenny to own the real estate and lease it to the restaurant without having any ownership in the restaurant, just like she leases the office spaces.

so now we know mark malone owns it...is it still for sale and filing bankruptcy...Could it become good again with a little business knowledge behind it? Ihave heard he is not the most gracious host in town...and business is down to nothin and that a bunch of kids pretty much run it

place went down after owner dumped his wife and brought in his girlfriend. She was a bitch. Ran everyone off..his good employees and prob most customers. She is gone now that the money is gone, but I heard she drove away in a new Lexus. Malone is an ass and deserves what he gets. KARMA
