There are plenty of coal miners that eat and drink at Summit City. What is wrong with the people of Letcher County? We don't have alot in the county and when we do have something certain people (trouble makers and uneducated smart alck) want to ruin it. I don't understand the reasoning behind this, will someone explain it to me. Not everyone likes the same things and we should be mature enough to understand that. Think about this the next time you are cutting a certain restruant, business, gas station and so on, when you go out to eat do you think everyone at your table should eat the same thing? Would you want to be like everyone else, east the same food, listen to the same musice, wear the same clothing, drive the same car. Would you want to really live in a world where everything is identical? How boring that would be. I am thankful we live in a country where we have the freedom to choose.
I live in Floyd County where the whole county minus about three precincts is wet and has been for over 29 years and I think this is the best post yet. What is wrong with people from our section of the state? Why can't we live and let live and eat where we want and either buy a beer or not without everybody getting nasty about it? I don't understand that. I have heard that Whitesburg does have some nice places to eat. One day I will go over there and and enjoy myself at one of their resturants.

I don't understand why some people have to find fault with everything. Just live and let live because if you don't want to drink an alcoholic beverage or eat a steak dinner then go to McDonald's and have chicken nuggets or a hamburger. No one is forcing you to do anything and you shouldn't try to force your opinion on everyone else.

Summit City is Not goverment funded. The goverment does not or never has or will fund a personal restruant. Read your American history and the constitutation. You should really go to one of the local colleges and take a history, past and current, class. This is what is wrong in Eastern Kentucky people listen to people who doesn't know the true facts about a subject. You have a computer read the business laws of operating a private business and that of goverment and you will find the correct answer. Is someone forcing you to go to Summitt City? If not then why are you so upset with this eating restruant? How would you feel if someone like yourself was saying and writing ugly things about the resturants you attend. The world has so many serious problems. You should be concurned about the true difficulities in life.

Why does every thread end up like this? I enjoy Summit City and Streetside Grill. I prefer the food at Streetside and the fact that they do not charge a cover. I can afford to eat and have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere which is good in both places. No smoke inside but much laughter and socializing. I agree that some people drink too much but if they are riding with a sober driver, what is the harm? Open your minds people and enjoy life. It is too short to spend squabbling about politics every second.

thye are goverment funded, the appleshop gets funding from all branches of the goverment, the courthouse cafe enginees goverment projects, the mountain eagle also in the past has had gov assistanst. that is where the summit city money comes from. maybe you should look into this before runnin you little college educated mouth. all of us are not as stupid as you may think. i am a elected official of this county and i know the truth. i sit back abd cant beleive what our citizens beleive about you people. it is like fooling a bunch of kids. they will one day wise-up to your underhanded mission of this county.

Ihave been in summit city alot i've seen a lot of drinks being sold and not much food and there no one there during the week there is no way they make money and theres no way they sell %70 food im takeing my bussiness to street side where they love coal miners, loggers, truck drivers and all hard working people who want to inprove letcher county, you see if this county grows then appleshop will lose funding but if appleshop can make the county lose jobs the fund will rise,

To the writer who said he/she is a elected official, after reading your comment, if the rest of the elected officials in our country are as one minded as you than no wonder our cities, counties, state and nation are in such bad condition. I feel sorry for you.
