I think it more than 1 percent that reads Topix. Most have a smart phone today, they are able to post.
what really bothers me the most, are the unhappy people that will spread just plain lies. They will trash hard working people, who run a business. If i don't care for a certain person or business, I chose to spend my money some where else, and leave it at that. But no not here, they spread lies on topix, and other gossip sites. They hurt them, and they decide to leave. Good people, who want to be apart of our community have decided to to leave. just because of a few mean spirited people that are not happy. I tell these friends of mine to just let it go, but it is so hard to let the horrible things people say go. They will hide and pretend to be your friend.

Give me one example of any business that left based on what someone on Topix said. Now who is trying to BS us? Haters gonna hate. So what. Means nothing to me. I don't boycott a business based on what anyone says on this site. I judge them for myself just like everyone else. So let's try to keep it real okay? And if anyone does decide to leave based on 'a few' sour grapes, maybe they weren't cut out to be in business to begin with.

btw... 1% of Marshall Co. is about 310 people. I would be surprised to find out if over 200 people came on this site. Oh, please give me your reasoning (cause you ain't got no facts) for the over 1% figure you want to claim.

Well, pretty close, about 11,000 in the city and roughly 30, 000 in the whole county.
I other poster was just venting. You know how local business will be trashed around here . I blame it on boredom . With nothing to do, they will feel sorry for themselves , and start to blame others. It is so easy to be negative . Come look how many restaurants have been in that location the past few years???!!! I have tried to support all of them, no matter , how good or bad they were.

I can agree with you. The key is in what you said: "look how many restaurants have been in that location the past few years". The first thing any entrepreneur should do is a business plan that should tell them if there is enough foot traffic and need for their type of business. That is Business 101. It is painfully obvious past restaurants did not offer what people wanted and/or there is not enough traffic to support it. Restaurants are notorious fails because of competition.

Yep , you are right about the foot traffic. I thought the hamburgers were great, when the original "50's" built the place. It did no last very long , then came all he complaints . Then "hammers came and went as fast as they came. The ice cream shop is a perfect for the spot but it needs more.
I read today a list put out by Forbes, a list list of franchise restutant' s that failed . I was so surprised at the list. 3 ice cream shops, and yogurt shops.

it is clear a cafe with the 50 them does not appeal to the locals. move the ice cream over start up a plate lunch or buffet service. get some soup get some coffee and capa....now once you have done that then think of the type of customers you want and then appeal to them. or just close shop cause as it stands the 50 joint is done
sure it does

It is busy at lunch time. stop this locals crap. We are all one. Part of this community. they are a wonderful family. the subs are good,HAVE you tried the salads or the subs? well, if not go over there tonight. if you want a buffet go some where else, like "Mildred's" or KFC.

Go in there get to know them. introduce your self to the family.

My family really enjoys the place, from the subs to the consignment. The folks who own it have jumped into our community with both feet, doing lots of volunteering and hosting charitable events. I am grateful they are here.

The building is old, really old. Almost all of the buildings on the square need a ton of help, but I imagine that it is easier to do what is needed in an occupied building.

Many of the properties downtown were either built with living space or were converted afterwards to accommodate apartments. There are many people who live on the square, above or in existing shops. Many of them have dogs. From all appearances, they all have separate entrances.

I think a "malted milk shake" is in order for tonight. See ya there.

The woman who owns it was very rude to me. No people skills and certainly doesn't know how to treat customers. My bad experience there is enough. I will never spend a dime in there.
In reply to your comment, the woman who owns the parlor is not a rude person in any way shape or form. Yes she does have people skills and I've been going there and bringing other people there from day one and not one of them have a problem with her. She is a sweet lady and there is nothing I wouldn't do for her. Since you think she was rude to you, I'm guessing you did something stupid and she will not tolerate bad things in her parlor as she is family oriented and there are kids in there. She cares about the kids and does not want anything ignorant going on around them. This is why there is a NO DRINKING policy applied here. She's not running a club. I have seen people get out of line and she tries her best to give them a chance but when they step across that line in front of the kids that come in there, curse her employees, then yes she will send them packing and rightfully so. Any caring owner to an establishment would do that to protect their customers, employees and business. I'm guessing you probably did something stupid. Since you are from Columbia, stay there. She doesn't need your "dime". These ppl are trying to live like the rest of us and I will not stand here knowing them as I do and read all these lies on them when I am there every day and know how they are. Have a nice day.

I have lived in Lewisburg for 12 years and I have seen that diner go through owner after owner. I met the owners of the Diner as soon as they moved here and re-opened the diner. They are some of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. They are trying to bring life back to our square in downtown Lewisburg. They have been trying to offer low prices and fun to the families here. I can say first hand, out of the many many MANY times I have been there and I have walked around this town, not once have I EVER heard a dog around there. Now I know that there is someone on the square who has a dog, but it is not the owners of the 50's diner. They have done nothing wrong and they don't deserve this! Anyone who has the gall to down them OBVIOUSLY does not know them.
This is the kind of town Lewisburg is...They refuse to accept any kind of change or anything that would benefit them! Shame on all of you that are downing them! And the ones of you starting lies about them! How would you feel if it were YOU being trash talked on the internet? You wouldn't like it very much, now would you? Leave this poor family alone and let them run their business!
One Angry Person...Very well said and I commend you for standing up and telling it like it is. Everything you said is the truth. Lewisburg refuses to allow anything good to be here and they don't care about the families or anything but their political stupid crap and as for the diner, I applaud you for standing up for them too. I know them, have spent a lot of time with them and had a lot of fun there and you are right, they are trying to bring back life to this stupid town that doesn't want life in it. They act like they are still in the 1800's or something and they look down their noses at someone "new" or "different". I think you are a wonderful person whoever you are and it's good to know that there is someone else out there besides me who has no problem telling it like it is and telling the truth. These ppl just can't accept the truth and are ignorant to everything and are selfish, self centered, high society wanna be's and none of them are anything other than stupid. Thank you for your comment as I enjoyed reading it. Again, I commend you for standing up as you did. You have a wonderful rest of the week.

I'm not sure if they will be re-opening or not. I hope that they do, as I love the entire family and had so much fun there and enjoyed all that they had to offer in their business. However, I can also see their point of not opening back up after all of Marshall County and it's stupidity has run them into the ground as the majority of the ignorant people has done on this topic. With all the dumb ass shit said on here, what kind of business will they expect to come in the door? They have been run down so much that it's probably not worth their time to open it back up, and as bad as I see that, I hate to know it will be gone because Marshall County is full of stupid. Whoever posted that "they must think that everyone here in Lewisburg is stupid"....YEP..you might have a handful that aren't, but this entire county pisses me off with all their stupidity and ignorance. I'm shocked at how many ppl ran their mouth on (these family oriented ppl who were the nicest ppl I've ever met in this retard town), and they couldn't even use their real names when they complained on them. If they are scared..they need to say they are. I'm not..everybody can see my name and I don't care who likes it or not. Marshall County and it's retard citizens are responsible for the 50's Diner to leave due to their bullshit and lies. Hope those of you who complained are happy..Lewisburg will never be nothing, since nobody will let anything come into this town..especially something wonderful and enjoyable..

No offence, but you are not far from being just like the ones you complain about. Why? Because you are ill informed. You "think" Topix represents some large part of Lewisburg when it doesn't represent 1%. If this site is where you are getting your information from, that is sad. Any business that does not make it, does not make it because of the way they ran it, or because they misjudged their ability to make profit. But trust me, it isn't because they were trashed on this stupid site.
