I think its great that the Honeoye Falls merchants are banding together to try to save themselves. Unfortunately, too many people don't realize how hard it is for them to survive. We went out for dinner at The Norton Grille in HF last night and I only saw about 10 people that I know there. The restaurant is great, they serve really good food at a reasonable price, they make it comfortable for families to dine out in a nice atmosphere. So why didn't we see more locals? The owners are really nice and grew up here, their staff is friendly and efficient. My wife had the seafood buffet, I had the prime rib, our daughter had chicken wings and our son ordered from the kids menu. The only way for businesses in a small town to survive is if the residents go there. Sadly, what usually happens is places close and everybody says "geez I can't believe they closed. They were only there for four years and I never went there." Do the math.

LR & JFN go to Jack n' Jills, it is more than the old menu, very clean and bright and kid friendly. And most importantly it's locally owned and to please justfor it's in Lima!

By Lifetime resident I actually meant of the Honeoye Falls-Lima area. I lived in Lima for 20 years from age 6 months and then bought a house with my husband in Honeoye Falls where we have lived and raised our family ever since. I don't know why this site listed me as Lima, I am writing this from my home computer. And by the way I & members of my family DO support businesses in Lima. O'Grady's, The Hotel, Julia's, Quik Fill, Kirkwoods, Save-a-lot, Jack & Jill's, The Diner, George's & my insurance is through Tilly & Sullivan Agency, chiropractor is Redding, garbage pick up is from Shanks----gee I can't think of any more right now but that, I think, is quite a few. My family used to spend a lot of time at Crossroads Restaurant as well. At the same time we support as many HF businesses as we can. I don't understand why the animosity between HF & Lima. Why can't these communities band together and become one like the school district is? Small towns and their residents need to support each other not argue over the fact that small businesses close and what a shame it was. Be pro-active and do something about it.

The towm posted on your name does not mean the town you reside in, it is just the closest location to your ISP network station. I live in North Bllomfield but the town has been showing rush for me lately. Just an FYI

Thanks for the information. My point, I guess, got lost in the translation. I just wanted to point out that Honeoye Falls, Lima, Bloomfield, etc. all have great places to patronize with many of them, like The Norton Grille & Jack & Jills, etc. being owned by local people making an investment in their community. I think we all should help them out where we can.

I agree they are great places to eat. I will eat at a privately owned business before a franchise.
